This is ideal for Charity and Fund Raising uses or where budget restraints require the lowest possible pricing – badges and key rings are made as any other soft enamel product, but by using a Steel base, unit costs are reduced to a minimum. Products are die struck, plated as any other badge, and visually there is little difference between Steel based and Brass based soft enamel.
This base suits colour fill designs best as Steel is harder to polish flat and all metal designs should generally be made in a Brass base. Standard plates are either polished Brass or Nickel, but Gold plate can be used at a small surcharge. An epoxy coating is normally added to protect the paint fill.
