And we’re confident you won’t find better product quality and customer service anywhere else at all.
As for the pins themselves, we offer three pin styles that offer the best combination of value, appearance and durability.
Our classic soft enamel style is the most popular trading pin style on the market. We start with a die-struck design, then fill in the indentations with a custom enamel paint. Then we bake each pin to cure the paint and ensure a strong bond to the pin metal. We inspect and polish every pin before sending it to you.
Full color offset digital printed pins imprint your design directly onto the metal pin base. This style is best if you want to reproduce a photo, painting or specific logo on your pins. Unlike die-struck styles, offset digital pins require a clear epoxy coating to protect the design from scuffs, scratches and nicks. We provide this coating at no extra charge.
Photo etched pins use a chemical process similar to developing photographic film (remember that?) to etch the design directly into the metal pin surface. This style is ideal for reproducing designs with intricate details or fine lines. Like the offset digital pins, this style also requires the clear epoxy coating to protect the design. We provide the epoxy coating at no added cost.
As far as making your pins look great and have a high trading value, well, we’ve got that covered too. TradingPInsDirect.com offers a full selection of options to make your Destination Imagination trading pins even better!
Glitter enamel is our most popular, and our most affordable, option. A dash of glitter can really help your design stand out, adding a visual “pop” of richness and elegance. Use it alone, or in combination with our other add-ons.
Danglers are a great way to add the year of the competition to your pins. These hang down from the main pin, and add motion to your design.
Want something a little more active? How about spinners? Wheels, windmills, planets, you name it, we’ll put it on a spinner. These secondary pins add an element of play to your pins in addition to the visual appeal.
Sliders are a terrific motion addition too. Moving from side to side, top to bottom or diagonally on the main pin, these secondary pins add play value to the pins and are a great icebreaker for meeting new people.
Blinking LED lights give your Destination Imagination trading pins color and drama. Bring your design to life with small battery-powered LEDs.
Bobble heads add LOTS of motion to your trading pins. These attach to the main pin via a strong spring. The bobble head moves with even the slightest motion of the pin. This is one of the most sought-after options we offer.
