Key tags can be made in the same processes as medals as well as in PVC. They are a great give away to keep your name, product event front of mind. A key tag is one of the most popular and most used giveaway.
Porcelain key tags - A die is created to imprint your design into the metal. The color for your design is hand-filled with a powdered glass-like mixture. The key tag is fired at high temperatures to melt the powered glass. Then key tags are then individually hand polished and assembled onto a split key ring.
Die Struck key tag - A die is cut to the image of your design. These key tags are usually made in the color of the chosen metal and do not have other colors on them. To make details stand out on a die struck medal, you can choose to have certain areas polished while other areas could be sandblasted or have an antique finish. The finished key tag is assembled onto a split key ring.
Soft Enamel key Tag - A die is cut to the image of your design. The raised metal lines create indentations in between which are then hand-filled with the enamel colors. Once all the colors have been laid into the key tag, it is fired to melt the soft enamel. This process is similar to a porcelain key tag, but once it is fired, you can feel the ridges of the metal with the tip of your finger rather than it being completely smooth as in a porcelain piece. The finished key tag is then assembled onto a split key ring.
