  • Superior Matt and Shine Embossing
    Pin badges & lapel pins: superior matt and shine embossing

    Method: The background is sandblasted to a fine matt finish and the raised motifs or texts are polished. A particularly superior look is achieved due to the contrast between the matt and shiny surfaces. The finish of the product surfaces is gold, silver or copper-coloured or they are finished with an antique patina.

    Motifs: Graphic 2D realisation of a logo or text elements 

    Fire-Enamelled Coloured Embossing

    Colour Lined Embossing
