When you’re creating custom lapel pins, whether as company rewards, party favors, or to get your artwork out into the world, it’s understandable to be a little concerned when doing a strictly digital transaction. Sure, the proof looks amazing (our talented designers will do nothing less for you), but how do you know that your pins will be of the same quality? How do you know that they won’t suffer damages in transit from the factory to you?
All of our pins come packaged by default in individual poly bags. This prevents the pins from running into one another and suffering from scratches and chips in the enamel. While our pins are always of the highest quality, let’s be honest: mail carriers are rough with packages in the name of efficiency. Without the protection of the small bags, there’s a very real chance that the hard metal could cause some damage to other pins in the batch.
We do offer other packaging options (to be discussed later! 🙂 ), but another way to ensure that your pins stay protected is to coat them with epoxy. This works well on several of our pin types. Epoxy coating is a type of resin that’s put over your design after it’s complete. It seals it in and gives your pin a smooth finish, not unlike cloisonne.
Due to the nature of our offset printed pins, epoxy comes on those by default. However, for our other pin types, it can be included by request. Since it’s clear, it doesn’t damage or change your design at all, and it provides you with the peace of mind that your pins are protected, regardless of what happens to your poly bags or printed cards, or how your mail carrier decides to abuse your package.
Curious if your pins would look good with epoxy? Want to add it to future designs? Feel free to contact us at 1-866-604-9462, or email us at email@example.com, and we’ll be happy to discuss your options!
