Hard Enamel

Each design is stamped into metal and then plated into your choice of many lovely finishes. The recessed areas are filled with a hard fired Cloisonne paste and hand-polished. Because of the hard glass-like finish, Cloisonné is the choice for those who require the very finest look. Silk screen printing may be added to enhance small details.

Soft Enamel

Soft Enamel is an excellent coloring alternative to Cloisonné and Epola. It is frequently used for design with 3D relief. Brilliant enamel is hand filled into recessed areas and baked to harden. We can match any PMS color with pinpoint accuracy. The finish is available with or without an epoxy dome.

Brass Photo Etching

Photo etching is a process where the design is etched out by acid onto a brass sheet. Unlike Die Struck or Injection, Photo Etched products can be as thin as 0.8mm and it enables us to reproduce very fine details. Silk screen printing and epoxy dome are available upon request.

Iron Stamped with Soft Enamel

Zinc Alloy Casting

Casting products range from small lapel pins to sophisticated emblems and medallions. The production begins by producing a special mold for injection then hot liquid molten alloy is injected into it for a very durable and high resolution product. Injection is recommended for products above 2” in length and for lapel pins or key chains that have numerous cut-outs. Zinc alloy injection is a great substitute material to brass to fit your budget.

Offset Printing

Offset printing is the perfect alternative when the enamel filled process is not compatible with the design. It enables us to create exact reproduction of your artwork. The printing is done directly on brass, aluminum, or stainless steel and can be plated with gold or nickel plating as an option. An epoxy dome is applied to insure a durable and glossy finish.
