You might typically associate trading pins with baseball and softball but we are seeing a large spike in requests from youth hockey teams interested in creating trading pins. We, of course, are happy to help our customers create attractive, memorable pins and the White Bear Lake Bears are one of the teams that we assisted recently. With a unique shape, logo, and sliding hockey puck the team definitely knows what it takes to make a “tradeable” pin. As lapel pins manufacturers, we know that the more special the pin is the easier it is to trade.
Here are some of the reasons why trading pins remain popular staples at games and tournaments all around the world:
- Creates a great atmosphere for opening ceremonies. Trading pin events are a very large part of baseball/softball tournaments and are virtually the same for every other sport.
- Trading is a great way for kids to make new friends. Pin trading allows young athletes to get to know one another. Rather than see each other as opponents, it gives players the opportunity to become friends.
- Being able to participate and take home custom pins by teams from all over the world is exciting. Players get the ultimate memento. They get awesome pins from other teams and can store and collect numerous pins throughout the years.
Custom trading pins are much more than souvenirs. They are relationships builders. We offer a variety of add-on options that help your hockey pins stand out in the crowd. For example, you can choose glitter, danglers, spinners, sliders, blinkies or bobble heads to add to the tradeability of your custom pins. We can also incorporate information about your team, hometown, and players.

From time to time, we read about the challenge coins we have created for our customers. In this particular case, the Deseret News reported on BYU Baseball and we were the company that created their coins. Players were able to earn the coin by completing different requirements. One included finishing the annual run to block Y on Y Mountain last October.
One side of the custom challenge coin reads “Effort, Character, Execution.” The other side of the coin reads “competitive greatness” with three “+1″ symbols. Slogans like these help identify teams and their core values. As explained by the customer, plus one means being exceptional by going beyond what is expected of you. Competitive greatness stems from coach John Wooden’s UCLA Pyramid of Success. Details like these help players achieve everything they set out to do individually and as a unit.
Following military tradition, BYU has a similar way of using custom challenge coins. If a player or coach pulls the coin on his teammate (or coach) and the teammate doesn’t have the coin, the teammate must buy a soft drink for all of his teammates that have their coins. This is a fun way to instill pride in players and also to encourage them to keep their coins with them at all times.
Challenge coins are a great gift to give when you want to honor achievement, motivate recipients, and showcase your accomplishments as a team to your community. You can follow BYU’s lead by ordering custom challenge coins as recognition gifts for all of your players. They will cherish the gesture for the rest of their life.

The Special Olympics Committee helps put together training seasons that consist of the sports and activities held at the Special Olympics. We recently created pins for the Baton Rouge area’s bowling season. These programs help provide opportunities to Special Olympics bowlers. Events help Olympians hone their skills and learn the game itself. This is especially useful during winter months because bowling is an indoor sport that can be played all year.
Participating and improving oneself at these activities is important for Special Olympians and the staff that volunteers to make these events a success realizes that. The pins that we created for the Baton Rouge area were created to commemorate the season. Custom lapel pins like these are perfect mementos that help participants remember the special occasion.
The lapel pins has several identifying features. First, it’s purple and gold which are traditional Mardi Gras colors. Next, it is shaped like the state of Louisiana which is where the group hails from. As an added bonus, the Special Olympics logo is included in the design along with an image of a bowling ball and pins. The words “Baton Rouge,” “2012,” and “Louisiana” are all included in the pin’s design. This makes it distinguishable in a sea of lapel pins.
Custom made pins are great for this reason. They can be any size, shape, style, and color a person can imagine. This gives groups like the Special Olympics Baton Rouge bowling team the opportunity to express themselves and earn the support of their communities. Lapel pins are great for bowlers and spectators alike.

From time to time we receive a request from a customer that we can’t wait to share it with you. So was the case with All About Pins customer, Debbie. She wanted to commemorate a vacation that she took last October and she wanted to do so in a unique and special way. Using her design ideas, we were able to create a custom lapel pin that was both attractive and memorable. You’ll see a photo of the special pin here in our blog.
A map of the Caribbean and their ports-of-call are highlighted on the pin along with the date to help recall the special day. Oasis of the Seas is the name of the boat and is operated by Royal Caribbean. It is one of the largest cruise ships afloat. Details like these add to the value of the custom made lapel pin because it makes it relevant. People that attended the cruise will fondly remember the time that they spent on the water, the land, and among friends.
Many people showcase the special moments in their lives with lapel pins. We receive a lot of request for travel-related pins. Sold in gift shops at ski resorts, ranches, public monuments, national parks, lighthouses, and cruise ships, these one-of-a-kind souvenirs are fun to collect as well as easy to transport from location to the next. That’s because custom lapel pins are small and lightweight. Made from durable materials, they outlast other types of souvenirs like t-shirts, beach towels, and snow globes.
Custom lapel pins can be created in a variety of different ways to reflect the interests and personalities of cruise ship guests. That means that you can offer several different designs in your gift shops so that people have choices. Chances are your sales will be boosted because people won’t be able to choose just one souvenir lapel pin that they like. This increases your sales per hour and helps add to your gift shop success.

With all of the natural disasters the world has faced recently, trained medical assistants and rescue workers are in high demand. During tornadoes, earthquakes, typhoons, hurricanes, and monsoons, their assistance is valuable. At rescue sites, identification is crucial. That is why it is so important for workers and volunteers to wear custom lapel pins stating their title in a visible location. If you are the head of a charitable organization, you’ll want to make sure everyone is properly identified. This makes rescue efforts more successful because it eliminates confusion.
Custom lapel pins are exceptionally helpful tools in emergency situations. Not only can they help victims and their family members acquire the information that they need, the small pins can also acknowledge specific training and certification. For example, if a rescue worker is trained in CPR, his or her pin can state it. This allows people to approach the right personnel whenever they encounter them at a disaster site.
Lapel pins can be designed in a way to show medical insignia or emblems. They can also feature text identifying the person as a rescue worker or volunteer. That’s one of the things that makes custom lapel pins so helpful. They can be designed in a way to fit each group or hospital’s needs.
We have experience creating all types of custom pins for businesses, school groups, churches, non-profits, and organizations of all types. Using your ideas and specifications, we come up with custom artwork that is rich in character as well as detail. You can see samples of the pins that we have created in the past by visiting http://www.allaboutpins.com/photogallery.html.
