Are you worried about getting your lapel pins on time? We’ve come up with a fool proof system to help keep you on schedule and getting your order before you need them!
1. Order your Pins Early:
If you are ordering pins for an event, be sure to get the order in at least 5 to 6 weeks in advance of the date that you need them. This will reduce stress on your vendor as well as stress upon yourself. Having them in plenty of time for your event will be a big weight off of your back and you can concentrate on other things that will need your attention.
2. Ordering Early Saves Money:
Often times you can negotiate a better price for placing your pin order 9+ weeks out. If you have the ability to order super early, see if you can get a better rate on your order. It never hurts to ask.
3. Have a Backup Plan:
If you can not order your pins at least 4 weeks before you need them, always have a backup plan in place. Here are just a few that we offer here at CooperstownTradingPins.com
- Offset Printed Pins (8 Day Production Time) – If you don’t have the time for a custom die struck soft enamel (traditional) trading pin, but have about 10 days then the Offset Printed Pins are your next best option. Generally we can take your initial design and modify it for printing. This is a great alternative to a pin that requires a die.
- Custom Printed Quick Pins (4 Day Production Time) – CooperstownTradingPins.com offers our customers a custom designed digitally printed lapel pin. These pins have a regular metal pin backing, but there is a custom designed digital imprint on the front, that is then covered with an epoxy dome. This dome serves as a cover for the artwork, but is also a UV protectant and prevents discoloration from water and/or weather related causes. They take 4 days in production and can be shipped overnight and for Saturday delivery. Keep in mind that artwork design still takes 24 to 48 hours and generally it takes a day for order processing. So if you have about a week until your event, we can have these pins to you on time.
- Baseball or Softball Themed Stock Pins (Next Day Delivery) – This year we are offering our customers who are in DIRE need of pins, but have no time to create a custom pin… we have a few stock trading pins available. We have put together some upgraded designs for our stock pins that will be great with trading even if you don’t have the time to create a custom pin. These pins can be ordered and shipped the same day if an order is placed before 2:00pm central time. We can ship these items overnight to you, so you receive them the following business day.
We hope that we can save you some stress, time and money this season with these tips. If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to leave us a comment or send us an email and we’ll be happy to help.
