Offset printed pins are the alternate style pins that work great with real life photographs, or gradient colors, or lots of tiny details. These are the least expensive pin and can be made quickly.
Are offset printed pins right for you? Let us help you understand them a little better. Offsett printed pins are completely different than all other types of pins. All other pin types are struck in metal or cast with metal and have metal borders surrounding each color. Offset printed pins are literally printed to create the design. They are metal based, but the design is offset printed directly onto the metal. Think of printing a picture on paper. That is what you are doing onto the metal.
While offset printed pins are considered the lowest quality of pin, they are still a good pin, but are best suited for certain designs and situations. The advantages of offset printed pins are number colors does not matter, no metal lines between each color, gradient colors are possible, and overall more detail is possible in small spaces. With offset printed pins, a clear epoxy coating is applied to protect the print. They are very durable and will last forever just like the other pin types. They are just different.
Offset printed pins are great if you have a photograph you want on the pin, or if you have really tiny details, or if you want gradient colors to match a logo design or branding requirements. The other advantage to offset printed pins is they can be made a little quicker than enamel pins as there is less manual labor to add individual paint colors. So, if you have large run of pins, they can be made much faster than the other type.
Offset printed pins are not good or bad, they are just a different style of lapel pin. Designs with blended or gradient colors, photo realistic images, or lots of tiny details require the offset printed type of pin.
