A clear dome creates a magnifying effect for your design
Epoxy pins are perfect when you want a complex image, gradient, or photo printing on your lapel pin. Either offset printing or screen printing can make the clear doming pins. The base material of the pin is either brass, stainless steel, or aluminum.
If you want a prestigious finish and metal parts from the pin in gold or silver, the pin body is brass. Stainless steel is the most durable but cannot be silvered or gold plated. Aluminum is the most preferred base material, but even that cannot be finished in gold or silver, and the end result is a bit of a brushed metal look.
Epoxy doming pins can be screen printed, in which case a screen printing screen is first made from the image of the pin. The screen printing is first printed on a metal plate baked at about 250-350 degrees to cure the ink. After the baking step, the pins are cut from the plates and finished to the desired pin shape. When screen printed, colored surfaces can be created directly on the metal of the pin, leaving areas on the pin as a metal surface, as is demonstrated by some of our reference pictures.
Finally, a clear liquid epoxy varnish or, more often, polyurethane, which hardens on the surface of the pin to form a completely clear, convex lens, is added to the pins. Hence the name lens pin or printed doming pin. The advantage of polyurethane for older epoxy casting is clarity, and unlike epoxy, polyurethane does not turn yellow over time.
We can also manufacture some forms of doming lapel pins quickly in really short turnaround times if your order is in a hurry. Instant doming pins are completed in as little as 24 hours, which it takes to print and cure the polyurethane doming lens.
