Compare Our Top Rated Lapel Pin Styles

We offer several different custom pin styles, including die-struck, enamel styles and printed. Work with our talented team to learn which is best for your logo.

  • Die struck: In die striking, an image is transferred into a blank by using a large press. This creates a mirror-like finish for the final design.
  • Soft & hard enamel pins are created the same way except for one has texture and the other is smooth to the touch.
  • Printing and offset-printing is the best and most popular technique for full-color images. It’s also the best style option for quick custom designs where there are no solid lines between colors.
