About Us

Welcome to Collegiate Trading Company's Online Store!  

We are happy that you have found us.  We are the home of Pin University or “PIN U” Spirit Pins and have been producing collegiate and custom lapel pins and earrings since 2001.  

Our business was birthed from a never dying entrepreneurial spirit, a desire to wear/display our school spirit, and the realization that as we aged…t-shirts or sweats can't be worn everywhere. Hence, entered the lapel pin or Spirit Pin!  So we created lapel pins to help all of us fans display our school spirit.  And on the rivalry days, a little pin can speak volumes especially at work, church, or anywhere you go!  

Since the beginning, we have always sought to produce quality products for a fair price.  You might have seen our products in your favorite team store or on a hat or lapel of a game day friend!

We created our store to supplement the product selections not found in your favorite team store. We value our relationships with our retailers and we encourage you to continue to shop with them! However, sometimes they do not carry some of our items and we believe that you deserve to see our entire collection that has been designed for your school/university.

We also produce custom lapel pins and earrings for clients.  Some of our clients include corporations, universities, churches, local schools, or civic organizations. It’s always a neat thing seeing one’s logo or campaign slogan made into a wearable item.  If you have such a need then it would be an honor to help you make your event successful.  You can email or call and we will be glad to go over the details. 

Whether you are a new customer or loyal patron, we appreciate your business and value your input!  If you have a question or need assistance then please contact us at 1-866-979-1400.
