Soft enamel pins with your choice of metal, inks and specialty inks like glitter and glow .
Soft enamel have flat metal and the inks are recessed (at a lower profile). If you ran you hand over the top, there is a height difference between the metal and inks. We can add epoxy for free that puts a clear coating over the top. This works great with any specialty inks and makes them like a mock hard enamel.

What makes a shape need die-cut zinc alloy?
When the shape has deeper cut in areas, any holes or a lot of thin or cut in areas, we need to use a different kind of mold that is cast in zinc alloy vs iron(stamped for simpler shapes). Areas like cut ins for legs, arms, hair and any shape that doesn't have a soft enough overall edge to it may need zinc alloy, which is a softer metal that allows finer details in the mold. They cost more because of the mold type and raw materials cost of zinc over iron.
