Soft enamel pins are the most popular pins on the market, and are a great and economical way to get into selling your designs, however if you like the idea of the soft enamel over hard, but want a more durable or professional finish, an epoxy dome finish might be your answer.
Soft Enamel pin badges get their name from the manufacturing process, and unlike their hard enamel cousins where the pin is completely flat, they have a recessed or ‘sunken’ surface.
The assembling of a soft enamel pins means that your pin design is stamped and cut out, and then plated in your chosen finish. Enamel colours are then placed into the dipped recesses before the setting process, which allows the enamel to sit below the metal lines, giving it that soft and bumpy texture. The clear epoxy resin is then coated over the top if you decide to use this option.
Soft enamel pins are ever so slightly less durable than a hard enamel pin, however have the ability to be more detailed in design, which is why many people opt to have the resin coating finish, which not only protects your pin and makes it more durable but gives it a really nice finish too.
Please note, purchasing this option is only available if you have already bought soft enamel pins, as an added extra, and shipping times still apply. Have more questions? Check our FAQ section or send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org
