Have you ever noticed that the trading pins on everyone’s must-have list really stand out from the crowd? They’re not just your basic logo or cartoon mascot. Instead, they grab attention with unusual design features, moving parts, and even flashing lights.
Want to make your pins even more popular this year? You’ll certainly attract attention when you design your pins with one of these six eye-catching options.

Movement Instantly Draws the Eye

Add a bit of movement to any pin and you’ll have an instant attention grabber. We can’t help but be fascinated by tiny moving parts where we don’t expect to see them. Collectors love pins that incorporate movement for their unique look and added visual interest.

Some options to consider include:

  • Danglers. These small additions hang from a tiny chain and provide just a hint of natural movement. They’re perfect for showcasing pennant wins and other victories, or for giving a baseball the illusion of movement.
  • Spinners. A whimsical addition to any trading pin, spinners show off your team’s hitting power with a whirling ball leaving the end of a bat or soaring over the outfield.
  • Bobbles. Jazz up a plain pin by adding movement to bats, caps, or even your logo. The inclusion of a bouncing design element will draw the eye of fans and collectors alike, and can be used to animate your logo or mascot for a playful look.
  • Sliders. What better way to tell the world what you’re best at than with a team member sliding into home base? This option is a real crowd pleaser on any pin, and works equally well with balls, mascots, or players.

Add Color and Light for Extra Appeal

Moving parts aren’t the only way to capture the attention of fans and collectors, though. Nearly any color can be made to sparkle with glitter, and when combined with standard finishes, it creates a stunning look that’s sure to land your pin on the must-have list.

Flashing lights add instant appeal to any pin. Light a burst of fireworks above an image of your stadium to commemorate a winning season, or add a bit of glitz to your logo or other design element.

Can’t decide? Mix and match to create pins your fans will love. A splash of glitter on a bobble or spinner gives your pin even more of an impact. And when combined with flashing lights, your pin will have the instant eye-catching appeal collectors and fans love.

When choosing a custom trading pin supplier, look for one who offers free design work, and who can help you choose the options that best match your style and budget. They should offer color matching to ensure your logo and mascot look their best, and also quick turnaround, so you’ll never be out of stock. Finally, look for top-quality materials. Your vendor should offer a variety of metals, clasps, and packaging, so you get exactly what your fans expect.
