_As the founder of Strike Gently Co, I deal in pins and patches daily. The Creators Project asked me to pull together a weekly roundup of the best newly-released pins. Most of these will probably sell out. If you like them, smash that “add to cart” button. Every Wednesday, you can head to the bottom of this article for an exclusive discount code so you can keep your pin game sharp.  _

It’s Wednesday, my dudes. That means it’s time for another weekly pin roundup. Thanks to people like Pinlord and Patchgame, writing these is pretty easy. They’re the best aggregators of pins and patches in the whole world wide web, and you should follow them. This week, we’ve got everything from cute pups to Gucci Mane. At the end of the roundup is a special discount code to my shop, Strike Gently Co. I released four new pins and two new patches this week, so check them out—if you feel so inclined.

Before we get into all the meme pins that bring home the bacon, let’s get the artistic stuff out of the way. Cold Toes is one of my favorite pin makers. He doesn’t produce stuff often, so every time he does, it’s like the best day of Hanukkah, Christmas. I did a collaboration with him a few months ago and it was one of my best patches yet. Thanks, Cold Toes.

Sometimes I see dogs like this walking (or feebly hobbling) down the street. When I do, I want to buy a Radio Flyer red wagon, fill it with velvet pillows, and put the little sucker in—so he can stop suffering and just enjoy the day. There’s nothing sweeter than a fat old ugly dog. God bless them, and God bless this pin.

Back in 7th grade, friends were hard to come by. Until you started playing lacrosse, drawing Taking Back Sunday fan art or listening to A Tribe Called Quest, it was hard to find anyone who ‘got you'—no one understands, man. Friends are ephemeral, life is meaningless, ah Bartleby, ah Camus! Time to whip out the old eyeliner, iron that hair, re-pierce your ears, and create a username with lots of xXx's. There’s only one man you need to impress, and it’s Tom. Thank you, daddy.

This is a personal pin because it hits close to home. This year I’ve spent more time walking to and from the United States Post Office than any other location. The pin game survives thanks to USPS’s low prices and somewhat impeccable (ok, definitively average) service. They might move slow, but at least they move. As the old adage goes, “THE MAIL DOESN’T STOP! CAARROOOL!”

I don’t really know why I like this patch, but I do. I think it’s because rappers are a commodity now? Or maybe it’s because Monopoly was actually sort-of gangsta? But really, I’m just a white dude with a cursory knowledge of Gucci Mane’s discography. I should go directly to jail.
