For the last few weeks, inquiries for baseball trading pins are slowly increasing each day.  Teams from all over the country are getting a head start on the designing and ordering of their team trading pins.  We’re busy helping other teams design and come up with the newest and coolest designs for this year’s tournaments and we want to help you too.  Our years of experience help us to provide expert advice and design consultation to our customers.

If this is your first year of pin trading, here are some helpful pointers to get you started:

  • Your pins need to be at least 1.5” big.  The bigger the pin, the faster it will be traded.  The more bold and unusual the pin, the higher perceived value it has.
  • Try to include your team mascot, your city and state, and the age group of the players.  This will make pins relevant and memorable.
  • Baseball theme emblems like bats, baseballs, and fields are always a good idea.  Who doesn’t love the sport?  Make sure that people can easily recognize your pins by including images that are familiar to others.
  • Adding extras like glitter, or danglers will help your pin stand out in a crowd which is what you want.  A little extra shine and attractiveness helps pins be more desirable. Your players will have their choice when trading pins like these.
  • Order early.  Once you have your design and you know your numbers, order your pins.  Each year, the closer and closer we get to summer, the longer it takes to get pins made.  Don’t be left out, order right away and take pride in knowing your custom trading pins will arrive in time for your first game.

As each week passes from now until the summer, baseball trading pin season is heating up.  A little league team out of Long Island, New York wanted something to set themselves apart at games and tournaments.  The pin that they created for 2011 needed to be highly tradeable.  After listening to their design ideas, we were able to create an outstanding dangler complete with the team’s mascot and all of the player’s numbers.

The baseballs going in a half circle clockwise is a great way to make each athlete feel like a part of the team.  It also helps customize the pin and give it that extra special something that sets it apart from the crowd at tournaments like Cooperstown and the Little League World Series.  In fact, it’s hard not to notice a trading pin that incorporates a raging bull, the team’s colors of black and yellow, and a dangling baseball with the year 2011 on it.  In all likelihood, it will be one of the first pins being traded at tournaments this year.

Here are some suggestions we have for making your trading pins as unique and appealing as the one we did for the little league team mentioned here:

  • Choose a bold graphic like a mascot or flaming baseball.  This is a great way to get people to associate your mascot with your team.  You can’t help but notice the Smithtown Stampede’s strong looking bull.
  • Choose a unique shape.  Trading pins do not have to be round.  In fact, the one that we featured in today’s blog is baseball diamond shaped.  The more unique the size and the shape, the better the chance of the pin being traded.
  • Choose a cool add-on.  From dangling charms to blinking lights, we have a lot of options available to add style to your already awesome trading pin design.
