Pin trading is one of the most popular activities at Destination Imagination (DI) tournaments. In order to protect our organization, our DI teams and our volunteers, we have instated new pin guidelines for teams and individuals. Please be sure to review the guidelines below before creating pins for an official Destination Imagination event.

  1. A list of approved Destination Imagination, Inc. Licensed Pin Vendors is available below. More Licensed Pin Vendors will be added as they are approved.  Our vendors are required to adhere to the guidelines published in our Pin Policies Doc and Brand & Style Guide.
    If you have any questions regarding your pin design, we ask that you contact the Licensed Pin Vendor directly.
  2. Teams and individuals are prohibited from infringing on a person’s or company’s intellectual property. Teams and individuals may work with Licensed Pin Vendors to create appropriate designs that do not violate relevant trademark laws. It is the responsibility of the Licensed Pin Vendor to ensure and communicate adherence to trademark laws.
  3. Download and review our Trademarks & Logos Cheat Sheet for Teams that breaks down the do’s and don’ts of using the DI marks.
  4. Teams and individuals may also purchase stock pins, available on the open market, for pin trading at Destination Imagination events.
