You may find that there are some badges in our website have similar looking but have been named differently in soft enamel or imitation hard enamel. You may have a question in your mind: what is the difference between them?

The most difference between soft enamel and hard enamel is the texture.
Soft enamel is laid in the recessed areas and put through ovens to bake it hard. When dry the enamel clings to the edges and recessed below the metal die line. This gives the soft enamel the ‘bumpy’ feel when you run your finger over the top.

Imitation hard enamel – also called new enamel, it raises the enamel higher after baking so can be polished flat to the same level as the metal die lines. The enamel gets a polished look to a very high quality. For the flat surface, client can choose to add printing onto the surface as well, but no epoxy is available for new enamel.

Due to plating process, there are some plating colors which are not available for imitation hard enamel such as brass plating, imitation gold plating and rainbow plating.
