Why Choose Custom Photodome Printed Pins?
Some designs are too complicated to diestrike or enamel fill, but with photodome pins, we're able to replicate a complex logo with an offset printing process. Photodome lapel pins are printed directly onto the metal (usually aluminum base metal) and then covered with a protective epoxy dome. At larger quantities, these are the cheapest and fastest option. They're a little lighter than the diestruck or enamel pins, but are an excellent option for the right logo and timeframe.
