5 reasons to not order from Pins Fast

You hate getting things on time.

Think of the disappointment you will feel when that friendly FedEx courier arrives on your doorstep, asking for your signature. Just as the website said they would when you entered your tracking number. Darn it, don’t they understand that you are a creative, chaotic soul? Couldn’t they have had a coyote drop an anvil onto the truck or something, just to gin up a little bit of excitement in your life? Everything is just so calm, boring, and predictable everywhere else, you were really looking forward to using your phone for hours trying to track down a package which never arrived on time.

You love a good mystery.

Where is it? Who has it? Has the package been shipped yet? All these are valid questions! But the truth is, if an item is being manufactured overseas, it’s not always possible to track the package while it’s in transit in a foreign country. Sometimes, we just have to take a chance! Live a little, and roll the dice! You’re sure the package will arrive someday. Ok, so maybe you hope it’ll be there by Wednesday, but you know how it is. It could be in India right now. Or Russia! Who knows! Isn’t it fun to think about the weird and wacky journey your pin order must be taking right now? The pins could’ve been made in the U.S. and in only 24 hours, but that would be boring.

You have all the time in the world to read all about pins before you make a decision.

What a patient person you are! You love to do research for hours. You have the time to read up on all the different types of pins available, how they are made, and what the average production schedule is for each pin. You know how all the different manufacturers source their metals, and the malleable properties of each. You want to learn all about enamels, how the artists get them onto each pin, and how long it takes to fire each color. Other people might just be concerned about getting a good quality pin in time for next week’s tournament, but not you. You’d never be so impulsive.

You thrive on creating disappointment.

You love it when it’s trading day, and you get to look into your child’s eyes and watch their face fall when you say “Sorry, sport, but we didn’t get those trading pins in time.” Or when your company gets together for the annual service awards meeting, and you have to hand out free hamburger coupons to everyone who has been with the company for 25 years instead of some pretty award pins with your company’s logo on them. Hey, disappointment is part of life. You’re glad to help teach them that valuable lesson.

You hate bringing manufacturing back to the U.S.

What’s the point of creating jobs for hard-working American entrepreneurs who like to create their products domestically? There’s just no fun in knowing that you’re helping a fellow countryman make an honest living, making custom lapel pins whose progress can be tracked online from first concept to final delivery right here in the States… or that you might live right down the street from the sort of people who are most qualified to help you order a pin for your company or team?

If you know you only have a few days before your trading event we strongly suggest that you order as soon as possible. We can create your pins in a matter of hours so that if you order early in the day your pins will ship out the same day that you order. If your pins are due the day after tomorrow you can qualify for two day shipping which is much cheaper than overnight shipping. In order to qualify for the 2-day shipping you must order with us early in the day so that we have time to make your rush pins before the shipping companies close. If you wait until the afternoon, it may be too late to ship it out today and we will have to ship them out tomorrow. Shipping the day before your event requires an overnight shipping cost. Typically we pay between $160 to $200 for overnight shipping of pins. 2-day shipping only costs about $50 or $60 and we are often happy to waive the cost if you can order custom trading pins fast.

Our rush trading pins are thicker and have better printing and plating than our other printed trading pins. An epoxy dome can be added to your rush pins for an additional charge. To get started just fill out our form on the right and get custom trading pins fast!

Rush Trading Pin Shapes

It is not possible to fabricate the metal into custom shapes in only a matter of hours; so to make your custom trading pins fast, we must use pre-made blank pin shapes. We have several varieties of blank shapes to choose from. Once you choose the shape of your pins our designers will work with you to create a custom image. The custom image is then printed onto the pre-made blank shape. Double pins and clutches are added to the back of your custom trading pins and an epoxy dome is applied, if desired. If you do not want an epoxy dome then an acrylic laminate is applied to protect the print against weathering.

Epoxy Dome vs. Acrylic Laminate

There is some misinformation online about acrylic lamination, or acrylic dome. We would like to clarify things here!

Epoxy Dome

All lapel pins come with the option of an epoxy dome. The epoxy dome is a smooth, glass-like surface that both protects and improves the quality of your pins. The epoxy is crystal clear; it does NOT yellow or discolor over time.

Acrylic Laminate

No standard lapel pins come with an acrylic laminate. Acrylic laminate (or “acrylic dome” as one competitor calls it), is nothing more than a smooth glossy coating. If that is all you need then we are happy to provide it, but for lasting quality we recommend the epoxy dome. It can add 30% to the cost of your rush trading pins order, but it is well worth the expense.

One of our competitors claims that the “acrylic dome” or laminate is more clear than epoxy. Acrylic laminate is a very thin layer which does not protect your pins from heavy abrasion and is not fully water-proof. Acrylic lamination was originally developed for sign companies; it is easily rolled or sprayed onto the vinyl used for rush pins. Acrylic is a very thin lamination and calling it an “acrylic dome” is misleading. If our competitor is so against the epoxy dome, then why do they offer it on their other standard non-rush pins? Don’t get fooled by this fly-by-night sales-tactic. Epoxy is the standard coating for all printed lapel pins because it fully protects and even magnifies your printed image.

Custom Trading Pins Fast & Cheap

If you need a lower price we are happy to provide the acrylic laminate and we will beat the price of any competitor. Our prices for rush printed pins can even beat some of the prices for standard printed pins. The best thing to do in order to save money is to contact us for a design and order as early as possible to avoid additional shipping costs. No company will overnight your rush pins for free as that could easily cost them $200. We also guarantee your 24 hour pin production time in writing. There is no better value, so please dont wait another minute – get your custom trading pins fast and cheap with Pins Fast!
