Century Hard Enamel Pins

Century Hard Enamel® custom lapel pins are for formal events, where a high end look features a smooth polished surface and precious metal plating. It’s perfect for corporate logos, high end brand recognition, for elite organizations, exclusive products releases, rewards, recognition or for any use where a better stamped lapel pin with colors and plating is required. It is a modern version of the classic Cloisonné hard enamel pin.  Custom shapes are also available and encouraged. It is an appropriate process for lapel pins, Key Chains, Earrings, Cufflinks, Charms, Pendants, Challenge Coins, Medals, and any other custom stamped metal product.

We’ll also gladly provide jewelry boxes; customized printed presentation cards; or plastic jewelry cases to further enhance the value of your pin.

Century Hard Enamel is a high quality, but less expensive alternate to true Cloisonné, and is the most popular substitute for creating classy, high end lapel pins at an affordable price.  The appearance of our Century Hard Enamel® lapel pin is so close to that of a Cloisonné pin; it often takes an experienced eye to tell them apart.  No epoxy is ever used on this pin type.

It is properly known as imitation hard enamel, imitation Cloisonné or simply hard enamel. Custom Pins’ registered trademark for this product is Century Hard Enamel®. (Beware of others showing prices for Cloisonné pins that are not true Cloisonné.). Unlike Cloisonné Hard Enamel lapel pins, Century Hard Enamel® pins are available in the full range colors from the Pantone Matching System (PMS). Pantone offers thousands of colors and is most often referenced when professional art is prepared.
