DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS & SUBMITTING ARTWORK:
Preparing artwork to be made in metal and enamel is very different from offset printing. For best results, design a pin version of your logo seal or design. What looks good as a poster may look like a colorful smudge when shrunk down to the size of your thumbnail. Most of the lapel pins we make are between 3/4″ and 1-1/4″ measured on the longest horizontal or vertical dimension. Simplicity of design often makes for the most legibly produced lapel pin, however, we can produce the most intricate of designs.
