Colour process is usually applied after plating, filled by hand or printed by machine. The colour is made according to the Pantone Matching System, so we can do any colour you want. We have several different kinds of colour process, each option will have different design effects. Below is the detailed introduction of each one.
Soft enamel - The enamel is a water based diluted paint which is filled after plating. After baking the water evaporates thereby leaving the paint which gives a recessed finish. Colours need to be separated by a raised metal ridge therefore two colours can not be filled at the same time.
Imitation hard enamel - Imitation hard enamel is similar to soft enamel however it does not become recessed after baking. The enamel is epoxy based giving the medal a smooth appearance. Colours are again separated by a raised metal finished ridge.
Tinted enamel - Tinted enamel is similar to imitation hard enamel the only difference is that the finished product is not polished.
Silk screen printing - Silk screen printing is a print on flat metal, printed one colour at a time. Each colour needs a screen which can usually be kept for three months. An epoxy dome coating is used to protect the printing. Compared to enamel fine lines and pictures can be created with clarity using this method.
Offset printing - Offset printing is printed by machine in mass onto a metal board and then cut into individual pieces. It will also require epoxy coating for protection.
Ribbon Colours: Popular sizes for ribbons are 25mm (1") or 38mm (1.5") wide by 760mm (30") long.
