Etiquette is a part of daily life. There's etiquette at the family dinner table, etiquette attending a theatre event, etiquette in writing and responding to email. Pin trading is no different. An etiquette has evolved over the years within the culture of pin trading. A wonderful article on pin trading etiquette has been published at the pin site.

A copy of this pin trading artricle is attached to the CIPC site. The article was taken from and the Calgary International Pin Club is grateful to help pass along this aspect of the pin trading culture to pin collectors everywhere.
