Choosing a Destination Imagination Trading Pin Supplier

Blogger - May 11, 2016

It's no secret that part of the fun at Global Finals is trading DI pins with other participants.

It's a great way to meet people and make new friends from all around the world. So where do you get those pins, and what are some things to be aware of when choosing a DI trading pin supplier?

Lots of Suppliers, But Which One's Right?

It only takes seconds to find dozens of trading pin providers on the Internet. They all make similar claims for their pins. So how do you choose the provider that's right for your DI team? Here are some tips for choosing a Destination Imagination trading pin supplier.

Things to Consider

Check out some of their art. Any reputable provider will display a gallery of their previous work on their site. See what you think of the designs they've created in the past. Great art is the key to great trading pins. Talented graphic artists are a must for any company you're thinking about doing business with.

A great company will be open and friendly. Call them or email. An artist or sales representative should welcome your questions and be happy to help you. DI trading pins are about having fun. Ordering them should be easy and fun too. A cheerful attitude goes a long way toward happy customers.

Ask how long the company has been in business. It's easy to start a business on the Internet. It's harder to keep customers satisfied and coming back for new orders year after year. Ask them if they've ever made pins for DI competitions before. If they have, it's a good sign that they'll do well with your pins.

Ask about extra charges. Some companies try to tack on sneaky extra fees. A great supplier will never charge you for artwork or unlimited revisions, or charge mold or setup fees. And you should expect free shipping of your order to any address in the continental United States.

See what pin styles the company offers. Different styles have their pros and cons, and a good company will be able to recommend DI trading pins that are right for your design, your team and your budget.

Find out how a company rates with the Better Business Bureau. A great company will have a BBB rating of A or A+. That shows the company values customer satisfaction and will do what it takes to earn and keep your trust.

With just a little bit of homework, it's easy to find a provider for your Destination Imagination trading pins that you can depend on. Count on them for all your DI trading pin needs.
