Pin trading is the practice of buying, selling and exchanging collectable pins. In most cases they are associated with a common theme or related items which are used to display the badges as a hobby. You find these collectable pins that are used in trading are always found in the amusement parks or resorts as well as the online stores which sell them at affordable rates. It is also important to note that this has become one of the most popular annual activities where each of the participating team, individuals or parties have the unique pin that they use in trading. Here are some of the tips that will make your pin trading experience better.
To start with, it is recommended that you buy enough trading pins for each of the players that are going to participate. I can tell you that you will really feel disappointed when you run out of pins when the player has not even identified that best pin that he wants to swap for. It will be, therefore, vital that you shop for pins in advance so that you can avoid such incidences and if possible, you should even buy excess.
Apart from that, you should also specify where you want your pins to be delivered. This is because time is a significant factor in pin trading and you need to avail yourself at the right time and running to the store and back may see you waste some time. Therefore, when placing your order you need to specify the exact place where you would like to receive your pins, and they will be there at the right moment.
Apart from that, it is essential that you think the visual appeal when you are planning your pins. You find that when you make your pins to be more unique and unusual, you will be in a position to swap them faster. To be able to stand at that it is essential that you improve your personalisation skills so that you can stay ahead of others. Therefore, when determining what design will work best for you, it is essential that you consider colour, shape, style and size. There are many shapes that you can choose such as spinners, sliders, danglers’ blinkers and bobblehead. Also, it will also be better to add glitter, players name and number and mascot to make sure that it is standing out.
It will also be essential if you consider how your players are going to show the pins. Remember that you have to maintain the look of your pins and the best method that can prevent them from tear and wear while travelling is the use of trading pin bags.
