IS AS EASY AS 1-2-3
Follow our three-step process or visit our dedicated customization page for more information on the options available to bring your designs to life.
Step 1

Send US Your Ideas

All great designs begin with an idea. Due to the customized nature of our products, we can only give you an accurate quote after creating a proof. Send us your design vision, which can be nothing more than a concept, and we’ll develop it for you.

We offer free, high-quality artwork to every customer, and our team works until you’re 100% satisfied. Take advantage of our unlimited revisions guarantee.

Step 2

Get A Proof & Quote

Once our design team has completed your design, we’ll send a proof with the challenge coin cost. Our challenge coin prices are tailored to the job, varying based on intricacy, metal, finish, and any other special additions you want to include.

If you’re unsatisfied with the proof, get back to us, and we’ll revise your design until you get the coin you want.

Step 3

Approve & PURCHASE

Are you satisfied with the design in front of you? Give us the green light, and we’ll get to work producing your pins. We offer various payment methods to suit your needs, including taking payments over the phone. From the moment we receive your payment, manufacturing your pins can take up to 14 business days, depending on the number ordered and how many other orders we’re completing. Shipping usually takes 2-3 days.

My class spent well over $9,000 on our class coins. First issue, they didn't get them to us in a timely manner. We received them barely in time for graduation. Second, they sent us coins with a misspelled word (brave) as seen in the picture. Third issue, a lot of the spinners came broken, also as seen in the picture. When I reached out to the company, they claim sending replacement coins out at a later date is rectifying of this situation. Very empathetic to the situation at hand overall. Not very professional at all, terrible business practices and they definitely will not receive future business from me nor any recommendations either. Zero stars

I found this company last year after a recommendation from a friend and I've ordered several times now. What keeps me coming back is the high level of customer service and responsiveness in the projects that have been created. The work product is also great and the quality of the coins, detail and just overall, I am very pleased with. This is my GO TO shop now for coins. Please check them out, you will not be disappointed! PS. Big shout to Corbin for his amazing guest service!

This company is fantastic! I reached out to them to create a custom shaped coin with custom artwork that they had put together for me. The coins are a Veteran's Day thank you token for those who served at our company. We will definitely be returning for future orders. From start to finish, they were very open with communication, extremely fast to respond to concerns and questions, and lastly delivered something that blew us out of the water. Thank you so much!

I ordered challenge coins on behalf of my government agency. Lone Star was easy to work with and did amazing things with the graphics I sent. They turned the artwork around quickly and each time it was better than what we had hoped for. We did have several back and forth messages to get the coin exactly as we wanted it. Our representative was so patient with us and had excellent customer service. We also got the coins in the mail quickly. Working with Lone Star was a wonderful experience end-to-end.

I engaged with Lone star challenge coins to make coins for my fiancé's celebration of life. I was pretty clueless about design, and they provided the perfect design. The coins arrived in time, and we were more than satisfied with the outcome. Their customer service was excellent as well. They guided me (held my hand) throughout the process, and were quick to respond. I cannot say enough about their product and company.

We are so grateful for the work Lone Star Challenge Coins did for our nonprofit fundraising event! They worked with our budget and gave us medals with ribbons and challenge coins that were better than we expected.

Corbin was very combative when I explained that the design provided was not at all reflective of the requests that I provided on the Inquiry form. Based on the customer service alone during that 1 phone call, I am not inclined to pursue any business with this company. EDIT: I spoke to the owner, Mike, and he helped rectify the situation and framed it as a learning opportunity for his team. This is a good reminder that people make mistakes but first impressions matter.

Personalizing Your Trading Pins

Make sure your pins stand out for all the right reasons by choosing from a range of lapel pin options. We have different style pins such as hard or soft enamel finishes, as well as an array of plating options and various add-ons. Whether you’re searching for colors and textures that communicate luxury, functionality, or class, we have the plating options for you.

PRO TIP: Make your pins stand out!

If you really want your trading pins to stand out in your tournament, we recommend considering some of our available add-ons. Glitter is a popular choice for softball trading pins. You can add some flare to your baseball trading pins by adding a dangler or a slider. Keep in mind that these add to the manufacturing time, so make sure to order in advance!
CUSTOMIZE WITH PLATING OPTIONS

Polished gold and silver are by far our most popular platings for custom trading pins. However, black metal is also a really good option if black is one of your team’s colors. We can also make the metal any color imaginable such as navy blue or crimson red.

While there are a few exceptions, almost every custom trading pin out there is manufactured using dual rubber clutches. The reason for this is comfortability. Metal clutches tend to chafe. Also, the dual posts allow for stability so that the pin stays put, and doesn’t move around while being worn.

– Custom trading pins are used as a fun way for kids to express team pride and team spirit. It also enables them to build camaraderie, and positively engage with team members of competing teams. By trading pins with other teams, your child can create their own collection of custom enamel pins that they can cherish for years to come!
Custom trading pins are typically made using a zinc alloy because it is a high quality, cost effective metal. It is also lighter and softer than iron. The fact that it is a softer metal allows it to include a higher level of detail as impressions are more easily made during the stamping process. It being a lighter metal also allows the custom enamel pins to be worn without pulling on the fabric.

The cost associated with custom trading pins can vary widely, and are dependent on a number of factors such as size, design complexity, and the quantity ordered. Additional add-on options, which are used to create interesting designs can also add to the price. Typically, the cost ranges from $2 – $3 per pin.

Our minimum order quantity is 100 pins. We also have significant price breaks at 300, 500, 750, and 1000 order quantities. Increasing the number of pins ordered will significantly increase the overall value of your order.
