At Morning Craft, our team of craftsmen are dedicated to creating custom offset printed pins in different shape with stainless steel or brass metal. We use our high quality full color printing process to offset printed the pattern design onto the surface. We use clear epoxy resin to cover the imprint to protect the pin surface from being scratched. This epoxy domes will offer pin surface shiny effect while being a protective coating. And we also offer fade resistance to the face to custom lapel pins. To create high resolution offset pins, we suggest to send us artwork in high resolution to make sure pattern design are printed with sharp imagery. Offset printed are cheap and have a great look, They are the popular type and ideal choice for different events.
