Everyone involved with sports knows the importance of having attractive, quality trading pins on hand but they don’t always know the specifics on how to order them.  We decided to answer any possible questions that might come up by writing a blog about the subject today.

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions regarding ordering custom trading pins from All About Pins:

Q) How do I know how many pins my team will need for a tournament (or Cooperstown)?

A) We figure you would need approximately 1 pin per team, per player. So if there are 20 teams participating and you have 11 players on your team you would want at the very least 200 pins. Please do keep in mind having players keep a couple for themselves, their family and supporters of the team.

Q) I don’t have a logo, can you help?

A) We’d be happy to help create a logo for you and we provide such artwork services free of charge. Once you purchase the trading pins, you can then use your new logo as your team’s official mascot!

Q) When should I order my trading pins?

A) As soon as possible! June is the busiest month for trading pin companies and you are going to want to pad production time to allow for any possible delays, etc.

Q) Can you ship to my team’s hotel?

A) We can! We can ship to your team’s hotel or the tournament location itself. If UPS can deliver there then it’s possible.

Q) How big should my trading pin be?

A) Common sizes would be 1.5” to 2” in size and they really the most economical. The larger the pin gets, of course, the more expensive it will be.

Q) Does my trading pin need to have add ons like danglers and spinners?

A) Nope! A well designed one piece, standard trading pin can be highly desirable by utilizing a unique shape, coloring and graphics.
