Trading pins and sporting events go hand in hand.  Before placing an order for the custom mementos, ask how you can get more bang for your buck.  How many uses can you find for a single order of custom trading pins?

Five ways to use custom trading pins at your sporting events include:

  1. As a way to demonstrate team spirit.
  2. For fundraising purposes.
  3. To promote sponsors.
  4. To instill a sense of pride in athletes.
  5. To break the ice and trade with other teams throughout the season.

Custom trading pins are unique to each team.  It doesn’t matter if the sport is school or community sponsored.  We create pins that reflect your team.  Through your selection of colors, words, and imagery, we create one-of-a-kind mementos for students, staff, alumni, and other members of your community.

We offer spinners (a spinning piece is attached to a stationary base), sliders (a sliding piece is attached to a stationary base), danglers (a dangling piece is attached to a stationary base), blinkies (one or more blinking lights are included in the design), and bobble heads (a spring loaded head attached to a stationary base).  We can further customize your design with silkscreens, glitter, and even cut outs.

It’s that time of year again.  It’s time to start thinking about your custom baseball or softball trading pin design.  What can you do to make your pins stand out this year?  If it’s your first time ordering from us, you’ll want to know what different types of pins that we offer so you can choose the one that is the most fitting for your players.

Here are the styles of trading pins that we can create for you:

  • Sliders. Consisting of two pieces, a slider slides across a stationary piece giving the appearance of movement when interacted with.
  • Spinners. Like a slider, spinners have two pieces.  The fixed piece provides the foundation for the pin whereas the spinning piece moves to create a unique and memorable memento.
  • Blinkies. Consisting of one or two blinking lights, this style of trading pin is operated with an on/off switch.  It is one of the most visually attractive pin styles that we offer.
  • Danglers. Once again, this type of trading pin has two pieces.  One is stationary.  The other consists of a dangling charm.  This is a great way to promote your sport of choice by making the charm a baseball or softball bat, glove or ball.
  • Bobble Heads. A stationary piece makes up the body while a spring loaded piece makes up the head.  When flicked, the head “bobbles”.  This style of pin is perfect for showing off team mascots.

We can make your pins even more memorable by adding glitter, cut outs or silkscreens to your design.  Let us know how we can best represent your team.  Our talented team of artists want you to be satisfied with the final product.

Beat the rush by getting your custom trading pin order in today.  Contact us with your request for a no obligation, free price quote and digital file containing the custom artwork that we created for you.  Email your ideas to  If you’d rather speak to us directly, you can call 1-800-252-0904 toll-free.  This will give you the opportunity to ask questions and to receive the knowledge and support needed to create a custom trading design that is sought after by other teams.

  • The first is size.  No matter how great your pins are, they need to be a big enough size to catch ones attention.
  • The second is design.  A great design is critical.

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.

Start the design process today.  Give us a call and we can take some information over the phone that will allow us to prepare a free digital sample for you to review.  The number to reach us at is 1-800-252-0904 toll-free.  You can also email your request to or visit for more information.  Contact us right away to get your custom trading pin design started.
