Custom Destination ImagiNation Pins for Trading

For a very long time, custom trading pins have been created and exchanged at sporting events, tourist hotspots, and academic competitions.  These small tokens of appreciation are as unique as the people that order them.  Designed with a team or event in mind, they can depict anything and contain text that generates interest, identifies players or rewards a job well done.

What is Destination ImagiNation?

Destination ImagiNation is an educational program that encourages students to be creative, work with a team, and problem solve to meet goals and criteria.  Over 125,000 students across the United States as well as 30 countries compete by solving open-ended Challenges in team settings at Tournaments.  There is more than 1.3 million alumni involved with Destination ImagiNation, Inc.  35,000 volunteers globally assist with the non-profit.

Why Trade Pins?

There are a number of reasons why your students should trade pins.  Here are just a few of the most obvious:

  • Pins help break the ice with other teams and build friendships.
  • Pins identify schools and teams.
  • Pins boost confidence.
  • Pins give students something memorable to take home with them after a competition.
  • Pins are lightweight and practical.


As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to collect and trade custom lapel pins.
