Team trading pins that belong on the ice!
With the growing popularity of youth hockey leagues, many teams are searching for an easy and portable way to show their team spirit. Hockey pins from CustomTradingPins.com are a great method for teams to show off their accomplishments. Trading pins at games brings players from different teams together and helps forge lasting friendships. Youth hockey leagues are popular across the United States and Canada for many different age groups. Kids of all ages have the opportunity to learn and enjoy the sport of hockey. One major difference hockey has compared to other sports is the players are encouraged not only to play the sport, but to officiate it as well. Many youth hockey players are officials for a younger age group. This helps the players not only learn the sport, but also gives them experience handling critical decisions.
Many former players have said officiating games helped them learn valuable skills they still use to this day. Many teams accommodate players from all age groups. These teams often design hockey pins with the team mascot or logo. Each age group uses the same pin and adds their age group or division to the pin. This allows each age group to show their individual pride, while also showing which team they belong to. Players of all age groups can look for someone younger or older wearing the same pin and know that even though they may not play together, they still share a common bond. Players can trade hockey pins during the regular season or especially at a championship where many teams are together at the same time. The players can trade their own team pins for pins they find interesting or pins from the winning teams. A player can look at the pins they've collected and have a specific memory attached to each one. Trading pins is a fantastic way for kids of all ages to meet other kids and build friendships they may not have had otherwise.
Pin designs can be anything you can dream up. Common designs are a team logo, mascot, or group photo, but aren't limited to those. Be creative! Our goal is to make unique hockey pins for you, and we love crazy ideas. The more unique your pin is, the more people want to trade for it! Your pin can be one of three different styles: soft enamel, photo etched, or offset digital. Soft enamel is the most common style as it is the thickest and heaviest pin. The soft enamel style uses paint to fill in the colored areas of the pin. Photo etched uses a process similar to soft enamel. However, photo etched pins allow for more fine lines and detail. Photo etched pins are also thinner and lighter than soft enamel pins. Lastly, offset digital pins use modern technology to print your design directly onto the pin. Offset digital pins are also the same weight and thickness as photo etched. We also offer a free clear epoxy coating for all three styles of hockey pins (it's required for offset digital pins to secure the image on the pin), and this coating helps protect the pin against scratches or dings. The epoxy also adds a layer of shine and depth to the pin. While the coating is not a requirement for soft enamel and photo etched pins, we definitely recommend it!
