Epoxy Dome vs. Acrylic Laminate

Epoxy Dome Lapel Pins

Epoxy dome offers the same benefits as a laminate, but as a resin it offers a smoother, 3D effect and thickness to the finished lapel pins. The epoxy dome is a smooth, glass-like surface that both protects and improves the quality of your pins. The epoxy is crystal clear; it does NOT yellow or discolor over time.

Acrylic Laminate Lapel Pins

Acrylic laminate is a glossy coating that seals to protect the digital print and works to maintain integrity of the lapel pins. If that is all you need then we are happy to provide it, but for lasting quality we recommend the epoxy dome as acrylic laminate is a very thin layer which does not protect your pins from heavy abrasion and is not fully water-proof.

**Epoxy dome lapel pins are slightly more expensive than regular laminate lapel pins. The slight bump in pricing is generally outweighed by the hearty look and feel that epoxy domed pins provide.
