Your team is special, and they deserve a special soccer pin. A great design is the first step, but adding 3-D pieces and special finishes lifts any pin out of the ordinary.
Not only do extras raise team spirit, they also give you fantastic trading power. Some extras, such as blinking lights are so coveted that they make your pin a ‘3:1’. That means they’re so popular at tournaments that other players will trade three of their pins for one of your team’s.
If you want your soccer pins to be the best they can be, make sure you let your designer know that you’re interested in extras when you get in touch.
Give your soccer pins some sparkle by adding glitter – one of the cheapest ways to lift your pins out of the ordinary. Glitter costs just 10 cents per pin for one glitter color or 15 cents per pin for two colors.

A soccer ball or mascot looks great as a bobble as it gives them and movement. The bobble is attached to the main pin by small spring so that it bobs around. Bobbles cost just 85 cents per pin.
