How many processes are involved in making a badge?

The types of badges according to the production process is the general method of badge classification, the process of making badges is the most baking paint, enamel, imitation enamel, embossing, printing and so on several types of badge process, we mainly introduce these types of badges here.

Types of badges 1: baking paint badges

Features of baking paint: bright colors, clear lines, the texture of metal materials, you can use copper or iron as raw materials, baking paint iron badges are inexpensive, if your budget is not much, choose this most suitable option The surface of the lacquered badges can be coated with a layer of transparent protective resin (Polly), a process known as “dripping” (note that the surface of the badge after dripping will be shiny due to the refraction of light). However, after adding the resin, the painted badge will lose its blockiness.

Badge Type 2: Imitation Enamel Badge

Imitation enamel pins have a flat surface. (Compared to a painted badge, the metal lines on the surface of an imitation enamel badge are slightly raised when touched with a finger.) The lines can be painted gold, silver or other metallic colors, and the lines are filled with different colors of enamel. The difference between real enamel and imitation enamel lies in the different enamel pigments used (one is real enamel pigment and the other is synthetic enamel pigment that imitates enamel pigment). Imitation enamel pins, with their superb craftsmanship and smooth enamel-colored surfaces, are particularly exquisite, giving the process of making pins a very high class and luxurious feel. If this is your first time making a beautiful and high-class badge, choose a badge with imitation enamel, or even an enameled badge.

Types of badges 3: Stamped badges

Stamped badges usually use badge materials copper (purple copper, red copper, etc.), zinc alloy, aluminum, iron, etc. They are also known as metal badges. Among them, since copper is the softest and most suitable for making badges, copper stamped badges have the clearest lines, zinc alloy badges are second, and of course, due to the price of the material, matching copper stamped badges also have the highest price. The surface of the stamped badge can be finished with various coating effects, including gold plating, nickel plating, copper plating, antique copper plating, antique silver plating and other various coating effects, and the recessed portion of the stamped badge can also be processed with abrasive effects and so on, in order to produce a variety of exquisite stamped badges.

Types of badges 4: Printed badges

Printed badges can also be categorized into screen printing and lithographic printing, often referred to as drip badges. As the final process of badge printing is to add a layer of transparent protective resin (Polly) on the surface of the badge, the materials used for badge printing are mainly stainless steel, bronze two types of materials, bronze or stainless steel badge printing is not plated, usually with this color or matte finish. The main difference between screen printing badges and flat printing badges: screen printing badges are mainly used for simple graphics, less color; while flat printing badges are mainly used for complex designs, more color, especially with gradient color, respectively, flat printing badges are more delicate.

Types of badges 5: Bite-size badges

Bite version badges usually use bronze, stainless steel, iron and other materials, fine lines, due to a layer of transparent resin (Polly) on the top surface, the hand has a slightly bulging feeling, colorful features. Compared with other processes, the production of clipped badges is simple. After designing the negative, the negative on the badge is transferred to the bronze plate by exposing the solar plate, and then the graphic to be etched is skeletonized with chemicals, and then the clipped badge is completed after the processes of spraying paint, grinding the plate, lightening, stamping, pin welding, and electroplating. The nibbled badge is usually 0.8 millimeters thick.

Types of badges 6: Tin badges

Tin badges are made of tin, it is a relatively simple process, the surface of the wrapping paper, printing templates provided by the customer, these are cheap badges, the production is relatively simple, more suitable for the student team or general team badges as well as general corporate advertising materials, promotional products and so on.
