Trading pins are a common giveaway at youth softball tournaments, but you can make plans to produce pins, with help from suppliers like GH PINS, for more than just the young athletes. If you're organizing a tournament, you're likely looking for sponsors around the community whose financial contributions can offset the costs associated with running the event. It's appropriate to send a gift of message to each sponsor after the tournament's conclusion — and you may wish to pair this letter with a special softball pin produced just for the sponsors. Businesses will often frame their letter and display it in their office, and the addition of a special softball pin next to the letter will look sharp. Here are some considerations for making pins for your sponsors.
Include Tournament Details
You want to make the pins for your softball tournament sponsors as specific as possible to the event, so make sure that your pin design includes all the relevant details of the tournament. For example, the pin's design should feature the name of the tournament, the dates of competition, the tournament's host city and state, and any other details about the event. For example, you might wish to include something such as U-16 if the tournament is for teams with players under the age of 16.
Express Your Thanks
The key reason to make up the pins for your softball tournament's sponsors is to convey your gratitude for their financial assistance, so make sure that your pin design has a prominent message of thanks. While the details about the tournament are important, they shouldn't overshadow a phrase that conveys this message. For example, you might simply wish to include such a phrase as, "Thank you for your support" or "Thanks for supporting youth softball in [your city/state names]."
List The Sponsors' Names
If there's room on the pin design, you may wish to consider listing the names of the sponsors. This feature can be highly desirable to each business that contributes. This approach is most applicable if you have a small number of sponsors, as it's unrealistic to attempt to list a long list of companies' names on a small pin. You can group the sponsors' names at the bottom. If you have had companies make different contributions — for example, you've recognized some companies as "gold level" sponsors because of their hefty financial support — one idea is to list these companies' names in slightly larger print on the pin. This extra recognition may even compel other businesses to donate more next year.
