A enamel pin is usually made of metal, worn on clothing sometimes worn on the lapel of a jacket, attached to a hat, or displayed on a piece of fabric. Lapel pins often display a logo or can indicate an affiliation with a cause or an organization or it could just be a design that a person likes. There are 3 steps to composition of the enamel pin：
The material of enamel pin
The thickness of enamel pin
The colour and size of enamel pin
The material of enamel pin:
The material of the enamel pins is metal plating and enamel paint. To make enamel pins, the enamel pin factory will take your artwork and make a mold that is used to stamp your design into a piece of high-quality metal and then cut around the outline of your design. Then the cut shape is plated with a variety of finishes; either gold, silver, or the most popular black nickel, then the raised areas are polished to a high-quality finish, and the recessed areas are filled with enamel paint. Each color is located in its own concave In the trough, the raised metal area acts as a barrier, surrounding each color and preventing them from mixing together, and then applying high temperature curing enamel paint before adding any other finishes (such as a resin dome).
The thickness of enamel pin：
Each enamel colour of your design has to be separated by a line of raised metal, which acts as a barrier, preventing colours from mixing together.These lines should be no thinner than 0.2mm
The colour and size of enamel pin：
Coloured areas of enamel paint are added to the recessed areas of your pins using a thin, needle-like applicator. The minimum text we recommend is 5pt. Please note that this is based on a normal font, such as Helvetica. More complex fonts will require larger font sizes. When using text in your design, make sure that you follow the minimum raised metal wire thickness and minimum fill color area size rules.Any raised metal areas of text should be no thinner than 0.2mm and should contain no recessed areas of colour smaller than 0.3mm.
