When the clients want to make a lapel pins, they usually have a question, “Should we use an epoxy coating?”
This is not a easy question to answer. In my mind, a custom lapel pin is all about personal preference. The epoxy coating is just an option but is not always needed.
Then which styles of lapel pins need to be c
overed with the epoxy?
1, Printing logo lapel pins.
the printing logo on the smooth metal finish is very easy to wear, the epoxy coating will protect it.
2. Sticker logo lapel pins
same reason of the printing logo lapel pins.
Epola pins or Imitation Hard Enamel pins are not recommended to have an epoxy coating, however I have seen timeswhere epoxy was applied.
For the soft enamel lapel pins, epoxy cover is just an option. One has to remember, epoxy s used as a protective covering. Oftentimes when lapel pins are going to be worn and exposed to being damaged (such as on a uniform), epoxy is a good idea. Remember that some details will be lost when the epoxy coating is placed on the lapel pin, because of reflections and depth perceptions.
