What is the Difference Between a Die Struck Lapel Pin and a Soft Enamel Pin?

What is the difference between a die struck lapel pin and a soft enamel?  We’ll explain each in detail below so you can make an informed decision as to which style best meets the needs of you and your business, organization, school, club or team.

A die struck lapel pin is created out of metal and will have raised and recessed areas. The recessed areas will be a textured metal and they can be sandblasted or textured depending on your design. You can also use the recessed areas to apply an antique powder that will cause the lapel pin to have an antique finish.

Soft enamel lapel pin are also created out of metal and will have raised and recessed areas however the recessed area will have soft enamel paint applied to those areas. Both of these styles of lapel pins offer a unique and valuable style lapel pin.
