Offset Printed Lapel Pins

The process begins with your design being transferred from a photographic negative onto the surface of the metal lapel pin. 

Your image is offset printed onto the pin blanks, which come in your choice of gold or nickel (silver). Then, a clear epoxy dome is applied over the imprint to protect the image’s surface from scratching. The epoxy dome has the added benefit of giving your image a glossy finish, as well as a protective coat. We recommend providing 300dpi camera-ready artwork for this process to ensure that your pins are printed with sharp imagery. The better the source image, the better the final product.


How To Make Offset Printed Pins

The shape of your pins is first cut from a metal sheet with the surface of the metal being left smooth. A base color is then printed over the pins, providing something for the printed design to adhere to. Next your design is offset printed onto the lapel pins and a clear, epoxy coating is applied to protect the pins from scratches.

What is your minimum order?

Our minimum order quantity is 100. In certain situations, we can manufacture and sell orders as small as 50 pins, but there is a below-minimum fee that often applies and the unit pricing is higher than that at quantity 100. Please contact us for additional details.

How long does it take to get my pins?

Although every pin is a little different, since everything we make is 100% custom, our orders typically deliver 7-10 business days after you pay for your order. That said, if you require a quicker turnaround, we will make every effort to accommodate it.

Can I get my pins faster than the typical turnaround time?

Even though our standard turnaround times are some of the fastest in the industry, we understand that sometimes you need your pins even quicker than usual. As such, we work with all customers to understand their deadlines at the beginning of the quoting process. We can either work with our production team to shave a few days off the delivery date or we can guide you into an alternate product type that can more easily facilitate rush production.
