There is no substitute for the classic look of Hard-Fired Enamel, an ancient Chinese art developed over 6,000 years ago. Each design is stamped into brass and then the recessed areas are filled with enamel and fired at a very high temperature, bringing the enamel areas level with the metal. This produces a jewelry quality pin with a high degree of detail and color. Each pin is highly polished to a brilliant luster and smoothness.

2. Soft enamel / stamping: copper-A2; iron-A4.
For the refined look of hard enamel at a slightly lower cost, choose Embossed Soft Enamel. These pins use the same thickness of metal as our Hard Enamel pins, but have a three dimensional look. The colored enamel areas are recessed and the metal areas are slightly raised. Combine this process with fine grain sandblasting to create a truly unique design.
