There are 5 common crafts in badge making. First is cloisonne badge, second is the imitation enamel badge, third is the paint badge, fourth is the bitten badge, fifth is the stamping badge, and the last one is the printing badge. We will briefly go over how these badges function in this blog.
- The difference between genuine enamel and imitation enamel badges: Real or genuine enamel belongs to cloisonne craftsmanship. Cloisonne is just made of red copper, with colored sand as the surface. While imitation enamels can be made of red copper, bronze, iron, and alloy. The color of imitation enamel is richer and has a smooth texture compared to real enamel that has a slightly raised texture.
- The difference between imitation enamel badges and lacquer micro badges: The difference between enamel badges and lacquer micro badges is the texture. The imitation badges are smooth while lacquer micro badges have raised fine lines.
- The difference between paint badges and bite badges: Paint badges are more delicate than paint badges. Generally, if you want something thinner, a bite plate is a good option since the thickness is only at 0.88mm. While the thickness of paint badges is 1.2mm and 1.5mm.
- The difference between stamping badges and paint badges: Stamped badges cannot be colored in comparison to paint badges. You only have polishing and electroplating as an option if you opt for a stamped badge.
- Printing badges – The badge can be printed with various complex colors both monochrome and gradient.
- Zinc alloy badge – The badge is slightly inclined and looks three-dimensional.
