Face it: It is the fans who buy tickets, turn on a television program, or buy the comic and anime books who fuel all aspects of the entertainment industry.What do fans value and crave? Feeling as if they are a part of the star’s life, the story of a movie, the action in a superhero comic, or the action in an illustrated anime novel. Remember the guys on Big Bang Theory? Each of the four idolized whoever was their favorite superhero.Because true fans gobble up whatever they can about their favorite celebrities, films, shows and books, networks, production companies and distributors, publishing houses and fan clubs know the value of using custom lapel pins to satisfy the always-strong demand.
Many Fans, Many Uses for Custom Pins
Even after being in the custom lapel pin business for more than a decade, we still are surprised at the many different ways the entertainment industry finds to use a pin.Every time a new superhero movie is getting close to its release date, we get orders from the film’s distributor, the comic book company that owns the characters, and fan clubs call because they need a custom superhero pin. The pins are handed out not just at premiers but regular theatres for the first week or two.Each fall, television networks discover a new ratings hit. As soon as the first Neilsen numbers are released, our representatives find themselves talking to agencies, producers and networks in Hollywood and New York who call to order custom TV show pins.At PinProsPlus, we get an early tip-off on a film that is expected to be a blockbuster hit, maybe even an Oscar nominee, because we get calls from studios, distribution companies, ad agencies handling the promotion and even agents for the big names starring in the film as they order special pins for the film and for the actors in it.As Comicon approaches, comic book companies and authors of illustrated novels alike begin calling to order custom comic book pins to sell or hand out to participants who then stay busy trading them with other collectors.Not to be outdone, many authorized fan clubs of stars and film genres such as Star Wars order custom film pins that members receive as part of belonging to the group.
