Why Choose Custom Printed Pins?
Printed pins are your best choice for complicated, colorful designs — especially those that incorporate text and/or photo-quality images. Our custom printed pins are made using one of two related processes: offset printing (of photographs and complex images) or silk screen printing (for solid colors). Offset printing is the same process used for printing photographs and other complex images, while silk screen printing is often used to print signs and banners. Using these methods for custom pin printing allows us to produce the same level of quality and detail.
Our talented designers will work with you to create an appealing design. Once your artwork is approved, a printing plate or silk screen is made for each color. The plates or screens are used to directly apply these colors to a large sheet of your chosen base metal, which is baked to cure the inks. We offer three different base metals for printed pins. Brass is the best and is the only choice if you want your lapel pin plated in bright gold or silver. Stainless steel is a durable choice but cannot be plated in gold. Aluminum is the most cost effective and lightest base metal for custom printed pins, but it cannot be plated and has a brushed silver look.
Is Custom Pin Printing Right for My Design?
We recommend custom printed pins if your design includes photo reproductions or complicated multicolor designs. You have the option of using a nearly unlimited number of colors without needing the metal edges required for hard or soft enamel pins. Printed pins are also a great choice if you'd like to include text in your design. In addition, custom pin printing is quite cost efficient, so this pin creation method is great for budget-conscious buyers.
