Cheerleading pins add a bit of pizzazz!

Pom pons and pleated skirts are a typical part of the uniform. But cheerleading pins add a bit of pizzazz – something every great cheerleader needs to look the part. And while the appearance of the squad has changed dramatically over the years, cheerleading lapel pins are one item that will surely be trending even as fashion evolves.

We’ve been in the business of producing cheerleading trading pins for teams all over the world since 2004. Our talented graphic artists have the experience you want in trading pin design. We know what it takes to make your team’s pins look great, trade well and meet your budget. And we know what it takes to keep our customers coming back year after year.

We specialize in three things: quality, value and service. We offer only the best quality materials and workmanship for your cheerleading trading pins. You can rest assured they’ll be the best you can get anywhere. But that doesn’t mean we’re more expensive! We will not be undersold on price. We can create fantastic custom cheerleading trading pins for your team, no matter what your budget.

Last but not least, we treat every customer the way we want to be treated ourselves. We back everything we sell with our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If there’s anything defective about any pin we sell, we’ll replace it free. The bottom line is simple — we’re not satisfied with your order until you are.

We offer a choice of pin styles. Soft enamel is the classic trading pin, our most popular seller. This timeless style uses special enamel paint in a die-struck design to create a bold, colorful, dynamic look that traders love.

Photo etched pins use a chemical etching process rather than die-struck designs to create a design that can include fine lines and intricate details that soft enamel can’t achieve. This is great for highly detailed designs.

Full color cheerleading trading pins use an offset digital printing process that allows your design to include photographs, fine details and specific logos. Like the photo etched style, these require a clear epoxy coating applied over the design to protect it from scratches and scuffs. We apply this special finish at the factory at no extra cost to you.

The key to the trading power of your cheerleading trading pins is the design itself. We offer a full range of pin sizes, and add-ons that can boost the trade value of your pins, but don’t forget that a great design can be any size, and can need few, if any options. Our graphic artists will be glad to work with you to create a memorable design that’s sure to win attention for your pins.

Having said that, well-considered options can add considerable value to your cheerleading trading pins, and can do so without blowing your pin budget. Glitter enamel, for example, is our most popular add-on, and quite economical. It adds a richness and depth to your design that helps your pins catch the eyes of traders.

Danglers are a great way to personalize your team’s pins, allowing you to add a year, tournament date or even a player’s name to the pins. These can be updated in succeeding years as well.

Spinners boost trading value by adding an eye-catching motion element to your pins, and a fun “play” factor as well.

LED lights are a terrific way to add a surprise to your team’s cheerleading trading pins. Give your team mascot flashing eyes, and you’ll be sure to get the attention of potential traders!

Sliders add motion and fun as well. A player leaping for a ball, for example, can slide along a track in the main trading pin. This adds to the desirability of your pins once the trading starts.

Bobbleheads add extreme trading power to your pins. These are mounted on a spring attached to the main pin, and move independently with motion. They are among the most sought-after options that send the trade value of your cheerleading trading pins into the stratosphere!

The Evolution of the Outfit…

Organized cheerleading has been around since the late 1800s. What started as an all- male activity became a female-dominated sport in the 1930s. Cheering is a common reaction among throngs of excited sports enthusiasts. And that’s what prompted the cheerleading pastime. Organized cheerers had a more methodical approach to their tasks. Rather than shouting randomly from the stands, they got closer to the action, and used rhymes and chants to promote school spirit and encourage athletes.

The earliest cheerleading uniforms were less conducive to athletic feats, although gymnastics and tumbling were a part of the sport. As symbols of their respective schools, the uniforms bore the school’s letters stitched to bulky sweaters. The skirts of the past were ankle-length and made of a bulky material. Cheerleaders who attended religious schools often wore plaid skirts, with patterns that mimicked their class uniforms. Early footwear consisted of canvas sneakers or saddle shoes – the two-toned leather shoes that are still sold today.

The ‘60s Brings More Dance, Less Dress

The ‘60s came with shorter skirts, as fashion progressed and the lengthy wool variety was no longer socially essential. The polyester blend fabrics were easier to wear. Around that time, the National Football League had begun to organize their own professional cheerleading squads. As these crews strutted their stuff in the spotlight, they set the tone for teams everywhere. Their less modest attire and advanced dance movements were contagious among the cheerleading community. Soon, squads were dancing more and donning less.

Today’s cheerleaders are incredibly athletic, with routines that combine gymnastics, dance and a profound level of skill, strength and dexterity. The National High School Cheerleading Championship is just one of many competitions that focuses on the sport.

The nationally televised events draw more than a million viewers in 32 countries annually.

The Introduction of the Pom Pom

Although few modern cheerleaders could imagine a routine without pom pons, these fringed, fun props were not a part of the cheerleader’s uniform until around 1965. Pom pons were used, as they are today, to make routines more visually appealing and to distract the opposing team. The shimmer of shaking pons only accentuated a squad’s show and made the routine more exciting.

Cheerleading Trading Pins

Trading sports pins has been a popular pastime for decades. With millions of pin traders around the world, it’s been called the most practiced pastime in spectator sports. What’s the appeal of pin trading? Trading pins yields a variety of perks. Some traders focus on finding the hottest new pins to add to their collection or uniforms.

Others are more interested in the social aspect of pin trading – meeting and mingling with fellow enthusiasts. Whatever the reason, cheerleading trading pins have been a meaningful part of the off-field experience for countless cheerleaders and fans.

There’s no doubt cheerleaders’ uniforms will change with the times. New stunts, songs and pyramids will surely emerge. Cheerleading trading pins will always be cherished collectors’ items and symbols of the stimulating sport.
