What is an Epoxy Dome?

Have you ever looked at our website and saw an “epoxy dome” referenced but weren’t sure what it was?  Well, you’re not alone.  Many people are unaware of what this option does for their products.  I’m going to take a moment to explain what this means in terms of a lapel pin or challenge coin. An epoxy dome is a clear plastic coating that can be added to soft enamel, photo etched, silkscreen, and off set printed style lapel pins and challenge coins.  By adding this item to a product, it provides a lustrous shine and protects your design from damage.  An epoxy dome is an option not a requirement.  For soft enamel style lapel pins and challenge coins, it is an option or personal preference if you would like it applied or not. Here is how epoxy domes help our different products:
  • Challenge coins- Gives the item a nice dome or bubble effects and adds additional depth to the overall design of the coin.
  • Silkscreen and off set printed style lapel pins- It helps protect the pins from scratching.  Silk screen paint and off set printed designs can be very delicate.  The epoxy dome acts as a barrier by preventing the design from being scraped off.
  Like many of our other services, we provide epoxy domes at no additional charge which gives you plenty of reasons to consider adding them to your order.  A phone call or visit to our website can help answer any further questions you might have about the advantages of adding an epoxy dome to your custom lapel pin or challenge coin design.
