HERE'S THE DIFFERENCE
Die Struck pins with soft enamel colors (also known as embossed or epola), are the most popular type of custom made lapel pin next to photo screen. All pantone colors choices are available with plating in black, gold or silver. Custom die struck lapel pins offer brilliant colors, fine raised metal detail, and the option of having either a smooth or textured finish. Soft enamel pins are the perfect choice to display a unique message, for any occasion, group or event.
Photo Screen pins (also known as screenprint, offset print, litho or photo-etched) are the most versatile. To recreate a design exactly, a photo screen pin is the best choice. Photo screen pins allow any image to be recreated, down to the smallest detail, without the need for metal separating lines around each of the colors.
