Great Items for Collectors from Pinsource

VT City Marathon Pins


There are collectors for just about everything you can think of these days. At Pinsource, we create several items in particular that have become very common as collector items, which adds some extra value to the items that we create. While most of the people who order from us are placing their orders for business, organizational or marketing purposes, having that added benefit of collectability certainly is nice!

Here are some types of items we design and create that are commonly collected. Consider handing these out at your next trade show or event:

  • Coins. Coins have been a collectable item for hundreds of years. Today, people collect a wide variety of coins, including specialty coins, foreign coins and coins that are no longer in circulation. We create coins for corporate, military and other purposes, and can create them in standard or custom shapes depending on the type of design you want. Collectors are certain to appreciate the variety we provide
  • PVC coasters. Coasters are a particularly popular collectible with people who have bars in their home. We create PVC coasters with unique designs for your company or organization that are colorful, resistant and appealing. These are great promotional items that collectors are certain to want to grab!
  • Magnets. Just about everyone knows at least one person who has a refrigerator or filing cabinet covered in magnets. That speaks to how effective magnets are as a marketing tool; people want to take them home and collect them. We make magnets in aluminum, acrylic or metal in a variety of shapes and designs to fit your needs.
  • Ornaments. Ornaments are a particularly popular giveaway during the holiday season, and people are always looking for new ornaments to add to their Christmas tree. You can have custom ornaments made using our etched process or from cast, and can customize the look of the ornament with company colors, logos or unique shapes.

If you run a company or organization, take advantage of the natural tendency people have to become collectors with these particularly collectible items. Contact us today for more information or to place your order; we look forward to working with you!

How PVC Coasters Can Help with Your Marketing Efforts

PVC coasters are promotional products that present an excellent marketing opportunity for all types of businesses. Even if your primary focus is the drink on top of your coaster, you’re bound to take a look at what it says. (Just try setting a drink onto a coaster without looking down at it, and you’ll find it’s virtually impossible!)

For an innocuous and un-invasive advertising technique, coasters are highly effective at getting customers to recognize branded images and retaining promotional information.

Most people are familiar with the most common use of advertising on coasters: beer advertising. Nearly every major brand has its logo emblazoned on coasters of multiple styles, designs and shapes. PVC coasters provide a unique advantage over the more common cardboard types of coasters, as they are washable, reusable and far more durable.

Beer companies looking to stand out in their industry often use PVC coasters as promotional products, giving customers something they’ll look at every time they set their drink down at home. This brings that company’s logo into the daily lives of their customers, encouraging brand loyalty and reinforcing the company’s key message.

PVC coasters also provide an eye-catching way of getting the word out about upcoming events, and are prized among collectors. Concerts, comedy tours and sporting events are increasingly advertised through the use of these promotional products. When distributed to bars in the local area, PVC coasters can boost ticket sales and event attendance, as well as give attendees a memento commemorating the event.

A lot of people have found PVC coasters to be fun keepsakes for important private events like weddings, birthdays, reunions and anniversaries. We can print photographic images onto coasters that will serve as a lifelong reminder of your most important events—for both you and your guests.

PVC coasters are surprisingly effective for advertising products and services that may have absolutely nothing to do with events or drink service. When people see your company advertised on a coaster, the sheer novelty might have them looking closely at your message.

Whatever message you’re looking to get across, PVC coasters are fun, imaginative promotional products to reach out to your audience.
