How Are Trading Pins Made?

Custom trading pins are made to order and usually include enhancements like glitter, sliders, blinkies. We manufacture our products in the USA and overseas enables to offer very competitive pricing and fast shipping. There are two product styles we make, soft enamel and a printed style. We have stock shapes in case you have a rush order and we normally can rush stock shapes in just a few days. Normal production time is two weeks plus shipping time and the printed style is our fastest made product. Our normal production style can include custom shapes as well as size up to 3" designs.

Two Main Styles to Trade

Quality Printed: This is a great option if you would like to reproduce your logo without any limitations. Also, our busy season is May through July and printed baseball pins can be made faster than any other pin styles, and perfect if you are short on time. We recommend a printed style as the number one style, followed by soft enamel. Soft Enamel: Years ago this was the most popular type to trade. There are thin metal lines separating each enamel color. What you should know about cloisonné: This is the only style we do not recommend. Cloisonné can have a lead content that is unacceptable for kids.

Is Cloisonne An Option?

What about cloisonne pins as an option?  We would never use this choice as the lead levels in cloisonne are not acceptable for kids trading pins. Our staff will help you choose the best colors and sizes for your artwork and digital proof.

More Options On Baseball Trading Pins

Add LED "Blinky" lights: By adding small LEDs, or Blinky lights, to your custom trading pin, you are adding eye-catching elements that will not only make your logo stand out in the crowd at trade shows and events but will increase the perceived value. Blinkies enhance and bring attention to specific aspects that may otherwise have been overlooked, and generally, take the quality to the next level.  

Bobbleheads & Spinners

Bobble Head Pins: There are few things less iconic in sports than traditional Bobblehead dolls. Bring the spirit of tradition into your game by creating custom mini Bobbleheads with us. Bobbleheads are a fun way to depict your favorite players, teams, coaches, and fans, with spring-attached heads that will bobble along with you as you cheer and trade.

Spinners: The best pins for trading are those that strike the perfect balance of creativity, relevance, and rarity. Incorporate a spinner into your design to add a fun element that isn't found just everywhere, and increasing the value.


Danglers and sliders are both moving accessories. Generally attached by a metal link, they are a great way to tie in different visual parts of your product. This creates a very smooth transition that is very noticeable and tasteful. Sliders are most often used for baseball pins. These accessories are a great way to catch everyone’s attention.


Blinkies are tiny battery powered lights that flash and are an easy way to increase the values of your custom trading pins. These are very helpful for catching attention and getting the viewer to think about the pin. Blinkies are a classic accessory that will never go out of style and will always be sure to get your pins noticed. Although similar to blinkies, glitter is another accessory that is very popular in many different styles. Glitter can be used as a fun attention grabber or a classy addition. Glitter can be placed anywhere and is one of the less expensive –yet still mesmerizing options and accessory.


Sliders are triggered via the backside where you can move around a piece on the front. Whether this piece is years, a ball or a name, sliders are an excellent way to make your custom trading pins look high-tech.
