Popular trading pin manufacturer creates new Infographic that explains the difference between soft enamel and hard enamel manufacturing. has recently released its new Inforgraphic that gives a simple explanation of the differences between the soft and hard enamel manufacturing process used on its lapel pins.

In the past, has become aware of the growing number of shoppers who don’t understand the unique differences between the two popular manufacturing processes. It is, in fact, one of the questions they get most from customers. The Infographic gives a simple, but thorough explanation of exactly how each process takes place, highlighting the positive aspects of each one.

The easy-to-understand infographic explains that the soft enamel pins are often more popular because they are least expensive. This is a quality die-struck lapel pin with enamel fill, which is a type of paint. After the paint is applied to the pin, it’s allowed to air dry and this causes the paint to settle, so that it is recessed. Because of this painting process, soft enamel lapel pins have a three-dimensional look. The pins have metal borders as well.

The hard enamel lapel pins are a little more expensive. This is also a quality die struck pin that will last for years. With this manufacturing process, the paint is heated to very high temperatures so that it hardens and has a polished look. When you rub your hand across the pin, it feels smooth. Hard enamel lapel pins are often referred to as the new cloisonné, Epola, Clois-Tech, Cloisonné II and Semi-Cloisonné. With other pin types, there are over one thousand pantone colors available to choose from, but with Cloisonné, there are only about 120 colors available. Though hard enamel lapel pins are not authentic cloisonné, they are less expensive to make and only an expert can tell the difference.

According to Craig Fry at Pinpros, “We believe this new Infographic will make it much easier for our customers to visually see and understand the differences between the soft enamel and hard enamel manufacturing process. We want our customers to be fully aware of what they are ordering.”
