When it comes to custom lapel pins, 3D vs 2D can make all the difference.

There is often question on what the difference is between a 2D finish on a coin, medal or lapel pin and a 3D finish. A 2D or two dimensional coin really has only 2 layers. There is a background and a raised surface. This is a great option for a text only or silhouette custom piece. With a 3D or 3 dimensional surface, there is a full range of textures and detail that can be added. 3D is a great option for depicting nature scenes for example, as it can provide the kind of detail that can make it almost picturesque.
