If you don't have artwork for your idea, no problem - we can provide design services for a fair artist fee.

Now, let's walk through the process of having your enamel pins produced. Here's what you'll need:

  • An idea: Bring your concept to us and we'll work together to make it a reality.
  • Schedule: From start to finish, the production process takes 3-5 weeks. Keep this in mind when planning your project timeline.
  • Artwork: If you have existing artwork, great! If not, we can help you create a design that captures your vision.

Here's what you can expect from the production process:

  1. Submit your project: Tell us about your idea and provide any relevant artwork or inspiration.
  2. The Dream Maker Artist will start creating your proof: Our talented team will create a digital proof of your design for you to review.
  3. You will approve the proof or request revisions for the perfect proof: We want you to be completely happy with your design, so we offer revisions at no extra charge.
  4. Once approved, you will sign off on the final production proof & pay your invoice.

Soft enamel pins are a popular type of lapel pin that feature a raised metal surface with recessed areas that are filled with colored enamel. The enamel is typically air-dried, which results in a slightly textured finish. Soft enamel pins are a great choice for designs with fine details or color gradients, as the recessed areas allow for more precise color placement. These pins have a slightly lower production cost than hard enamel pins, making them a popular choice for promotional products or large orders.


Hard enamel pins, on the other hand, have a smooth, polished surface due to the application of multiple layers of enamel that are heated to high temperatures. This results in a more durable and long-lasting pin, with a high-quality, jewelry-like finish. Hard enamel pins are often referred to as cloisonné pins, as they use a similar production method to traditional Chinese cloisonné enamelwork. These pins are ideal for designs with bold colors and strong lines, and are a popular choice for collectible pins or high-end jewelry pieces. Although they are more expensive to produce than soft enamel pins, the premium finish and durability of hard enamel pins make them a worthwhile investment.
