Laser (Silk Screen) Printed
Silk Screen pins have the design painted onto the pin, using a method similar to making silk screen shirts. Silk Screen pins are a great choice when exact specifications must be adhered to, such as with trademarked symbols.
The jewelry like appearance of this pin is perfect for promotional events, building your brand, or awarding to a valuable employee. When choosing a Cloisonné pin keep in mind that all designs must have an exact outline for each colour fill so the colours don’t bleed into one another.
Offset Printed pins are made with a laser printing technique that can capture the most detailed image, colour gradient, and text with a clarity that will astound. You also have the option of adding an Epoxy finish to your pin to add extra protection.
Die Struck (Soft Enamel)
Soft Enamel pins are commonly used as free giveaways at trade shows, souvenirs for tourist spots, and sports memorabilia. When customizing a Soft Enamel pin use simple designs that have defined and separate colours. An optional epoxy protective coating can be applied to protect the color enamels from fading or cracking over time.
Die Struck (Gold on Gold)
Die Struck pins offer the refined look of metal on metal that is often used as awards for years of service, universities, or outstanding achievements. The pin has a base that can be made of premium metal materials, recessed areas that can be sandblasted to add texture, or a smooth matte finish. These pins work best with simple designs and can be either 2D or 3D.
Photo Etched pins give your design a sharp look while making it come alive. Thin metal lines separate the colours from one another while the surface of the pin is completely smooth and polished. This pin requires a relatively simple design with an exact outline for each colour.
