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.

Lacrosse teams from all over the world will arrive in Prague with one goal in mind.  They all want to take home the championship title.  That’s why it’s important for them to have plenty of custom trading pins on hand to swap with other athletes going to the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship.  This historic event holds the same amount of excitement as any baseball or softball tournament.  They don’t want to be the only team there without pins to trade with other players.

Trading Pins With Other Teams From Around the World

We have created custom trading pins for several of the teams participating in the championship tournament.  Many of the designs represent the league, country or state the team comes from.  These keepsakes will be traded with other teams from around the world so they need to be memorable.

Soft enamel is the most popular type of pin for trading because of its great look, durability, and price point.  There are a number of ways that you can customize your pins.  Here are a few standout features that you can add to their design:

  • The name of your team.
  • Your hometown.
  • Your player’s names or numbers.
  • Your team mascot.
  • Sliding or spinning pieces.
  • Blinking lights, dangling charms or glitter.
    Bobble heads.

You can also choose a unique size or shape for your custom trading pins.  The most interesting and attractive pins are always traded first.

Having Enough Pins to Successfully Trade

We also recommend that you have enough pins for each player so that they can trade with all the teams.  Ideally, you want to have at least one pin per team playing in the championship for each child on your team.  For example, if the tournament is going to have 40 teams competing with one another, you want to have at least 40 pins for each player.

Pin trading is an event that young players, their families, and coaches look forward to.  Not having enough pins to make trading worthwhile is something that you don’t want to have happen to your team.  Ordering extras ensures that each athlete gets his pick of cool custom trading pins from other teams.
