We know things like custom enamel pins, foil business cards, and holographic stickers can be a big investment. As a small business ourselves, maintaining cash flow while making sure you're able to get the goods and services you need can be, well, a headache!
We're excited to now offer Quadpay, a service that lets you split your payments into 4 different installments. This is available on any custom printing or small business coaching service $35 and over.
During the checkout process, click the Quadpay option and you'll be directed to complete the transaction. Easy! We're so excited to be able to offer this service and hope it makes those bigger purchases a little easier!
While some may call it a Hot Girl Summer, we're ready to call it a Boss Babe Summer too. In the season of outdoor markets, pop ups, and a buzz of online sales, we know you need to make the most of your money. We've listed our top services that you can mark up and resell either to wholesale or direct to customers.
1. Enamel Pins
Average price per unit: $1.00-$3.00 Suggested retail price: $10-$12
Nothing is cooler than seeing your design or logo in enamel pin form (besides maybe randomly meeting Keanu Reeves?). Enamel pins are also durable and because they're meant to be worn, you get a lot of marketing value out of them. We offer so many fun extras to help make custom enamel pins one-of-a-kind -- glitter, glow in the dark, chains, and personalized backings are all at your fingertips!
Give custom enamel pins a go, order them in a variety of sizes and finishes and let's keep that #pingamestrong!
2. Embroidered Patches
Average price per unit: $1.50-$3.50 Suggested retail price: $10-$13
In the same way that enamel pins are made to be worn by your customers, the same is true for custom embroidered patches. Utilize up to 9 different colors in your patch design, we have an endless array of thread colors to choose from to best match your killer designs. All custom patches come with an iron-on backing for easy application to bags and apparel.
All premium custom patches are quoted via our online form.
3. Art Prints
Average price per unit: $2.00 - $4.75 Suggested retail price: $20 - $30
If you're an artist of any medium, our custom art prints are a perfect way to resell your designs in a cost-effective way. We offer a paper stock that is both eco-friendly and premium quality, and in two different colors (white and natural). Choose from a variety of sizes, and most orders ship same day or next day. All custom art prints are printed on a beautiful, textured stock making each print truly one of a kind.
Average price per unit: $.70 - $1.40 Suggested retail price: $2 - $4
As an added bonus, we do not charge extra for custom die cut shapes!

Foil printing is one of our most popular services for business cards and postcards. With so many colors and add-ons available, it's a great way to add some creative flair to your branding (and hellooooo did you see our new colors?). But also, what the heck are we talking about when we say we need separate foil files?
We know not everyone is a graphic designer, and sometimes setting up files for printing can be super confusing. This quick guide creates a visual for setting up files for foil printing properly.
Depending on how many sides you want your foil to print, we will either need 3 files, or 4 files: one file for both your front and back, and a file that notes what you want foil stamped.
Make sure the elements you want foil stamped are taken out of your front and back files completely. These need to be on separate files, and in 100% K (black).
Upload or email your files as hi-res PDFs, and the end result will be beautiful, premium quality foil stamped cards. We went with the holographic for ours!
If you need help with set up, our team is always willing to help. Email us with your request and our design team will work with you on getting the elements you need to create stellar cards.
When we first introduced holographic sticker printing over a year ago, we knew that our clients would love it. For months, we looked and tested for the right vinyl that would be high-quality, vibrant, and affordable. Shortly after our launch, we introduced it to the masses and we've been shipping thousands and thousands of custom holographic stickers across the world ever since!
Holographic stickers are such a fun way to market your brand, band, or business. These rainbow reflective stickers change vibrancy in different light and will make your designs unforgettable (and isn't that what we all want anyway?). Full CMYK printing is available, and we even have the capability of printing white.
We also offer holographic printing on roll labels or sticker sheets, perfect for your packaging needs. All vinyl stickers are printed on a 6mil premium vinyl (that's twice as thick as other online retailers!) and coated with a UV gloss that will protect the sticker from standard elements for 3-5 years.
Our team recently handpicked some brand new foil colors -- available on premium foil business cards and die cut business cards. We know how important creativity and standing out is, and these are designed to do just that! Create some beautiful, cosmic business cards that will wow 'em. After all, your business card is an extension of yourself.
Something we have wanted to do for a long time is make our social channels more about community and y’all! Product shots (and our hands in them) are super fun, but at the end of the day this business was built on collaborative magic. So we’re starting #TPbehindthebrand on Instagram (and will repost here) to introduce you to our amazing clients and their stories. Read below to meet Chris Fafalios of I Love Enamel Pins.
Hey there! My name is Chris Fafalios, and for the past 22 years of my life, I have made music in the band Punchline. Although writing songs and playing my electric bass has been my passion for most of my life, I enjoy all forms of creative expression. One of the things that I REALLY enjoy is drawing cartoons, and a few years back, I taught myself how to do some basic animation by attending classes at the old YOUTUBE UNIVERSITY (haha!) I cut up audio that I found on the internet, and created videos of myself talking on the phone to a whole bunch of celebrities. Some of these videos slightly caught on, which led to being hired to do work for some really cool bands (such as Weezer, Bowling For Soup, and Anti-Flag).
It was around this time that I saw Susannah’s posts about a company she worked for, and one of the things they made was ENAMEL PINS. I’d always wanted to start my own collection of custom pins, but I didn’t know how to go about it. She helped me every step of the way, and the quality of the pins were OUT OF THIS WORLD. I was so excited to hear when she started Tower Press, and I wouldn’t even CONSIDER going anywhere else with my business. I now have an Etsy shop (ILoveEnamelPins.com) and Instagram @iloveenamelpins where I have over 50 designs of pins, all of which would not exist without the help of Susannah and Tower Press.
Having this small business has been such a fun and rewarding experience, and I’m now fully addicted to designing pins and adding them to my store. In fact, I’m literally placing another order as I send this paragraph. If you’ve ever considered bringing your creations to life, I can’t recommend Tower Press highly enough!
Follow along on Chris' journey via Instagram. We've been so thrilled to work with him on custom enamel pins and pin back cards. Browse our website for tons of custom printing and design options, we look forward to featuring YOU next!
We're always looking to add more sticker stocks to our arsenal! Custom sticker printing is such a fun avenue for us to explore, and y'all have been asking for clear stickers for awhile now.
Printed on transparent premium PP film with a permanent adhesive (PVC free), colors will still print opaque (even white!). Our clear stickers have a 2-4 year outdoor life and quality always comes first. Die cut custom shapes are no extra charge, we can't wait to print your designs!
I've been spending a lot of time in Los Angeles lately (all will soon be revealed), and am so excited to head back again in June for the Girlboss Rally. It will be Tower Press' first time at the Empowerment Women's Conference, and we're ready to dive into a packed weekend full of networking and inspiration.
The Girlboss Rally takes place over two days -- June 29th & 30th -- and includes speakers like Whitney Cummings, Peira Gelardi (co-founder of Refinery29), and Rupi Kaur. Panels and keynotes cover everything from mental health to managing your finances to marketing. I know a lot of these conferences are mostly fluff with no substance, but here you'll find so much diversity and real honesty.
Tickets are still available (but going fast). We will be having a Happy Hour mixer on Saturday and can't wait to meet up with some of our clients (and potential new ones!).
