Our new delve into Enamel badges has started us with T.V and Film replica cop badges.
Enamel badge manufacturing involves creating a badge or pin using a metal base that is covered with enamel. Enamel is a type of glass that is melted onto the metal surface, creating a hard and durable coating. The process typically involves designing the badge on a computer, creating a mould of the design, and then pouring the enamel into the mould. The enamel is heated to a high temperature to ensure it fuses onto the metal base. Once the enamel has cooled and hardened, the badge can be polished and finished with various techniques such as plating or laser engraving.
The typical cost for the start up of a new badge is in the region of £600 which includes the initial design (following your instruction) tooling and the finished piece. A badge depending on size (say cop badge size) typically wholesales for £22.
