What’s the big deal about trading pins? Is it something your team is ready for? Here is more information on why pins are traded between teams and how you can get started…
Custom trading pins are mostly used by baseball & softball players since they serve as an important tool representing unity and the pride of the team. These pins are usually designed in a way that best suits the team’s preferences. They usually have the logo and name of the team so that each can be easily recognized by baseball & softball lovers.
Although trading these types of pins is turning out to be a hobby for many people, some may not know how to go about choosing a vendor to manufacture them. This is why it is important to know what to consider when ordering pins to avoid significant disappointments.
One of the key factors to consider while ordering the trading pins is time. Ensure that you place an early order for your trading pins. This will enable the manufacturers to have sufficient time to design and create the best possible pins for you. It will also mean that the pins will be available in ample time and just in case anything goes wrong, there will be enough time to correct the mistakes.
Another thing to take into consideration is the design of the pins you want. Basically the “cooler” your pin is, the easy it is to trade it and get the other pins that you want. Make the design in an way so that the spectators of the particular tournament will almost beg for a chance to have a trade with you. Adding extras to your pin is an easy way to increase the “value” of the pin and make it easier to trade. Extras like bobble heads, glitter colors, or even some blinkers and danglers ensure that the pins are unique in their own way and they do not look like other pins. However, try not to be over creative since this might make the pins design back fire and look very unrepresentable.
Make sure to consult the entire team in choosing the design of the baseball trading pins. This is to ensure that the design fits everyone’s expectations. As the saying goes… two heads are better than one! It is important to do things not as an individual but have someone else who can help, especially when you run out of ideas. Some people do some things better than others and you might be surprised at how much better the pins will look if a few more people were involved.
Another very important aspect to consider while choosing trading pins is the cost. The cost of production varies with particular things. It might vary with the different designs, the quantity of the pins ordered, the size of the pin, and so on and so forth. So before settling on a particular trading pin, ensure that you have all these in mind and how they will affect the choice you make.
Ensure that the reputation of the vendor is good. This is to ensure that the work will be done perfectly and as required. Talk to other people who have had trading pins made for them to get a feel for quality and service. Following these simple tips can make your pin trading experience a positive one that your team will thank you for years down the road.
