Printed Photo Pins
Custom printed pins are a great way to promote your brand and company logo. We offer three different types of custom printing: screen-printing, CMYK (Cyan Magenta Yellow), or photo options that give you more creative freedom when it comes down how much color goes into each design! You can also get metal edging around any designs for an elegant look without sacrificing durability since they're made with thin epoxy coatings added on top giving them extra protection against wear & tear while making sure everything will still shine through beautifully
Your logo will be printed on a lapel pin with no metal lines, just full color and heavy gradients. We create them by printing your design onto the metal piece which we can even include photos for background that's perfect if you want something more personalized!
We Manufacture Offset & Silk Screen Printed Pins
We create three different types of custom lapel pins. Our talented team will help you choose which style is the best for your project.
- CMYK pins Your custom logo is printed onto an adhesive label, which can then be placed on metal bases or left free-standing as you prefer. Next clear epoxy will protect the design from scratching and fading while also giving it durability for years of use!with any of our enameled designs or include a photo insert for a more customized look.
- Screen Printing: To create silkscreen-printed pins, solid areas of Pantone color are laid down over a metal surface. Metal areas can also be left exposed as part of the design to add dimension. Epoxy coating is added for protection as the finishing touch.
- Photo pins These pins are created by taking a real photograph and added onto the metal base. The label is printed using CMYK process, then affixed to cover in clear flexible material for durability! These thicker PVC/Acetate design make them extra durable than your standard pin while still maintaining that sleek look you love so much about us (and more)!
Add extra thickness to your printed pins with epoxy coating. We specially make individual screens for each color on the printed design—that way, the final result is exactly what you were hoping for. Combining enamel and printing is a great way to increase the value of a die-struck pin. Blending the two adds weight and a high-end finish. Finalize your design by adding a thin layer of epoxy to only the printed areas so the center of your design really stands out.

Why Choose A CYMK Pin Style?
There are a lot of similarities between various pin techniques-but also important differences. The difference between offset printing and screening is in the complexity of the image being used in the design. For detailed images and photography, offset printing is the best option because it can capture the same quality of detail found in the original photo. For simple designs and logos, full color screen printing is the best approach. Whichever technique you choose, we have many available options to fit the shape or style you're looking for.
The CMYK process is named for the four colors used in printing: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. CMYK printing offers high resolution and extra detail. To preserve the quality of designs created using CMYK, an enamel finish is often used to leave a glossy and protective finish. These pins are some of the quickest and most affordable designs to manufacture. Because they are made by adding a full photo or design with the specialized technique, they don't require metal detail, textured finishes, or raised and recessed areas to stand out which helps to keep the cost down.
Have a photo to reproduce?
We offer full-color printed lapel pins in days. To accomplish this, we create the pins the same way you would create a magazine-just on a much smaller scale. One of the benefits of using this technique is that no metal lines are needed, which makes it easier to reproduce logos or other detailed designs. If you're looking to add your logo to a custom pin, this process is the best solution.
You can also add photographs directly to the surface of our pins or customize their overall shape. That makes these great if you need create your design quickly and don't have time for something more elaborate
Photo Reproduction and Lightweight!
Using the four-color process, or CMYK printing, we can create the perfect offset printed pins. This method allows the pins to have color gradation and vibrant hues, which helps us accurately recreate colorful logos. It is also the best technique to use for creating custom shapes because it can be made to be lightweight and with fast production time.
You can also add photographs to your pin by applying the image directly to the die-stamped base. From there, the image can be attached with adhesive or printed directly onto the blank pin. As the final step, epoxy is added for protection and to give the pin a glossy finish. The important difference between a regular silk screen lapel pin and an offset style is that, for lapel pins, colors are printed and added one at a time. Offset designs, however, don't have any limits and can be made in just days, making them the fastest pin to produce.
