Team pins are not just for baseball and softball teams.
This type of pin is also popular in other types of sports, such as lacrosse, football, basketball, volleyball, soccer and hockey. Depending on the players, pin trading may or may not occur. Not all of your players may be into pin trading. However, it never hurts to have a large supply of pins available to your players, especially for the ones that want to trade pins with other teams.
What usually happens, is that initially a few players won’t want to trade pins. They act uninterested or just too cool. Once they start seeing all of the other cool pins their teammates get, soon they want to join in and start trading, too.
Team Pins Can Be Custom Designed Using Different Styles
There are different types of team pins available. They can be customized with your team’s colors, logos and other information. Pin styles include die struck, photo etched, soft enamel, silkscreen printed and offset printed. Each type of style uses different methods in order to create individual pins.
It should be pointed out that the amount of detail desired in the pin design can limit using certain styles. In fact, some designs limit the number of colors and amount of detail that can be used. For example, silkscreen pins are ideal for pins with a few colors and simple art designs.
