Records are making a comeback.  A new generation of music lovers have discovered the pure sound of needles meeting grooved vinyl.  Electronics companies keep up with the demand for record players in bright colors and patterns.  Artists offer digital recordings, CDs, and records as a way of meeting the needs of their fans.

Collecting Records is Cool Once Again

Vinyl record collecting clubs offer friendship, entertainment, and great tunes.  Members get together to talk about their collections, swap albums, and custom trading pins that they’ve created.  Pin trading is a big part of many clubs and organizations worldwide.  It’s a way to meet people, stay in touch, and expand record collections.

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.

A recent trend that we are seeing with our trading pin customers is that they are requesting to have us make them 2
different pins to bring to their tournament.  One pin is a standard trading pin.  The other pin is a specialty trading pin.  Both pins are very similar in their size and appearance, but the specialty pin has more features that take it to the next level.

For example, teams are choosing to add a spinner, or a slider along with glitter and blinkies to the special pin, and deciding to stay fairly basic with the main pin.  What ends up happening at the tournaments is that the special pins are getting pulled out of the kids bags in the middle of the tournament.  The main pins are traded first and then, at the half way point, the big guns come out.  The special pins hit the scene and cause major, major buzz.  They become the “must have” pin of the tournament and teams are willing to trade just about anything to get the specialty pin.

Supply and demand is a big part of pin trading.  Because there are only a few of the special pins, they can demand top trading value.  Some players are willing to give up multiple pins to get one of the coveted pins.  This is what makes pin trading a big deal in the sports world.  Kids wait all season to be able to swap pins with other players, teams, and coaches.

Get your custom trading pins today.  We can help you with your request for traditional and specialty pins.  Put your team’s unique personalities into perspective.  Design pins to take with you to all your games and tournaments and make memories.

Another tip for the upcoming Little League baseball and softball season.   Consider black metal plating to spruce up the look of your pins.  It is great for trading pins because it gives the design a distinctly classic look.  The best part of all is that it doesn’t cost any more money than our gold or silver plated pins.

We can achieve great details that add depth to the pins because the black acts as a shadowing effect.  Another benefit is that the colors that go against the black metal always seem to pop out at you giving the pin visual appeal.  If you’re looking for ways to set your trading pins apart in the crowd, black metal plating is an option you should definitely look into.

Also just like the pin pictured here, glitter paint along with black metal creates a cool affect that your players will love.  The extra sparkle is often just what is needed to make others take interest in your pins.  At games and tournaments, the most attractive pins are traded first.

Custom trading pins are a great way for players to break the ice.  They give them something to look forward to.  No matter who wins that day, every team member goes home feeling like a champion.  That’s because he or she has a lanyard, pin bag or towel full of trading pins to take home and add to their collection.

Don’t wait another minute to create your custom trading pins.  Visit  You can also email your ideas to  If you’d rather speak to a representative by phone, please call 1-800-252-0904 toll-free.  We’ll be happy to discuss your concept for black metal plated trading pins today.
