ASA Trading Pins for your ASA Nationals
Every summer thousands of Amateur Softball Association teams head to Nationals for a week of fastpitch softball and fun.
A very big part of the ASA Nationals experience is pin trading and we make ASA trading pins for hundreds of teams!
At ASA Nationals pins are traded with players from other teams - it's often the highlight of the week!
What kind of trading pin should you get for ASA Nationals?
We find that ASA trading pins are either soft enamel pins and
about 99% of the time. Soft enamel pins have texture that you can feel on the pin's surface.
Photoscreen pins are flat and shiny, with full color and magazine-quality detail.
We think Amateur Softball Association trading pins are evenly split between
soft enamel pins (also called die struck with color added) and
photoscreen pins (or a similar type of printed trading pin). Soft enamel pins take longer to make, so order ASAP.

What size trading pin should I order? don't get a pin that's small!
You will thank us afterwards. Unfortunately small pins often get shunned when trading.
The average ASA trading pin size is 1.75". We'd suggest at least 1.50", but no smaller.
Be a design guru... don't splurge on a blinking LED lights for an undersized trading pin.
Get a good size first, then if budget permits go for the extras. Big pins are better than flashy small pins.
How many ASA pins do I need? Thousands! Just kidding.
ASA fastpitch pin orders fluctuate based upon the number of teams in the tournament.
Plan for enough pins for each player to trade with each team (plus a few extras for family members).
Not sure how many teams there will be? Don't wait for the final team list or you'll pay a lot for rush shipping!!!
Just look up last year's team count and add 10%, that will be close enough to the pin count you'll need.
