What’s the difference between Printed and Enamel Badges?

Printed vs Soft Enamel



One of the most common questions we get asked is “what’s the difference between Printed and Enamel Badges?”. The end products are different so it’s important to know the difference before you go ahead and order your next batch of badges. So here is the low-down on this topic – We’re going to settle this once and for all…

Printed vs. Enamel

To put it simply, a Printed Badge is made up of a high quality print version of a logo which is directly printed onto aluminium or metal and then protected by a clear epoxy coating. This method of badge production is most commonly used when the logo design or slogan is too detailed to stamp and fill, or has a colour gradient. These badges do not contain any coloured Enamel fill and are better suited in situations where an exact detailed replica of the logo is required or when a faster turnaround is needed (as quick as 7 days with us). They can be made to any shape size or design and come as standard with a clutch pin fitting.

Enamel Badges come in a range of finishes, but the key difference is they contain Enamel in the badge. Your design is stamped onto metal, this creates keylines of the design and this is then filled with coloured enamel. Enamel is a natural material that has been used in badge making for hundreds of years due to it’s versatility and durability. These badges really can stand the test of time! Colours can be Pantone matched in ‘soft’ variants, but in ‘hard’ variants colours are far more limited and generally a little duller. Enamel Badges also have a longer lead time (3-4 weeks).

Enamel Badges are available in the following high quality finishes:

  • Soft Enamel
  • Hard Enamel
  • Vitreous Enamel


Whether you’re purchasing for schools, clubs, staff to wear everyday, corporate gifts or charitable giveaways, both Printed & Enamel Badges will represent your business professionally.

If you need a batch of badges fast, then here at i4c Publicity we can provide an Express 7 Day Service on high quality Printed Badges to meet your demand. If you have a bit more time and require a superior finish, then you’ll find Enamel Badges are exactly what you need.
