We offer three main styles of soccer trading pins, and a full selection of options to customize them to meet your team’s wants and needs. Our pins will be the ones that will have other teams standing in line to trade for them, at a price that will fit your budget.
Soft enamel soccer trading pins are our most popular style, and with good reason. These classic pins feature die-struck designs filled with special enamel paint that’s cured in an oven to ensure lasting adhesion. These rugged, stylish pins offer a look very close to cloisonne’ style fine jewelry pins at a lower price.
Full color offset digital printed pins print your design directly onto the metal base of the pins. This style is perfect for reproducing a photo, painting or specific logo on your pins. These pins do require the application of a clear epoxy coating to protect them from scratches and nicks, which we provide at no extra cost to you.
Photo etched pins use a chemical process similar to film developing to etch the design into the metal pin surface. This style works well with fine lines and intricate design details that soft enamel pins can’t capture. Like the offset digital pins, these require a clear epoxy coating to protect them. We apply the coating at no extra charge as part of your order.
Optional add-ons are a great way to increase the trading value of your team’s soccer trading pins. Great pins easily trade for two or more ordinary pins from other teams. We offer a choice of options to fit just about any pin budget.
Take glitter enamel, for example. This is both our most popular option and our most economical. Glitter applied to the background of your pins gives them a rich, classic look for very little money. It’s a great way to create a terrific looking, timeless soccer pin design.
Want to add motion to your pins to catch traders’ eyes? No problem! At TradingPinsDirect.com, we offer several ways to put your design into motion.
Danglers are an easy way to add a year, tournament logo or player name to your pins. These hang down from the body of the trading pins and swing back and forth as the pin moves. They can be updated in later years for additional tournaments.
Spinners add both motion and a fun “play” feature to your soccer pins. This secondary pin attaches to the main pin body and can be spun with a finger. Perfect for a soccer ball!
Want to add a moving player to the pin instead? Easy. Sliders move from one side of the pin to another (or from bottom to top). Once again, this is a secondary design that attaches to the main pin. They’re fun to collect and fun to play with.
Bobble heads add tremendous trading power to your soccer trading pins. This is one of the most sought-after pin add-ons you can get. Attached to the main pin body with a spring, the bobble head moves with even the slightest motion of the pin.
For something a little bit different, why not give your team mascot blinking eyes? We can do that with LED blinkers. It’s a great way to really help your soccer trading pins stand out from the rest.
