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.
Good day, loyal consumers. I’m going to be honest for a second—I never thought I’d be in the ‘pin game’ for this long. It’s been a year-and-a-half and every week the community manages to release dozens of excellent new designs. This is encouraging to say the least; I think the small-brand online shopping community will continue to grow. If you’re reading this and don’t have your own brand, why not start one? OK, inspirational talk: over. Let's enjoy these pins.

I always say Simpsons pins are lame as hell right before I include a super awesome Simpsons pin. Maybe I'm lame as hell? Well, whoever thought to combine Bart and Cam’ron isn't. Sure it was bound to happen eventually, but the result is pretty good.
Everyone loves a good pickle. I'm a Jew, and my goy girlfriend loves 'em too. There's no pickle emoji, so wear this pin and make lots of friends instead. Trust me, everyone loves a good pickle.

I saw this pin and got all excited in the way that only childhood ephemera 90s merchandise aimed at millennials can make one excited. I ate at least 500 of these back in the day, and boy were they good. From the oil-soaked salty cracker to the oil-soaked salty cheese, these things were the ultimate savory snack. The ultimate sweet snack, of course, was Dunkaroos, which used a similarly brilliant packaging formula. Ah, simpler times!
Most pin designs have been conquered but occasionally someone comes along with a strikingly simple but great design. This is one; I’d gladly wear this around wherever I go. Hopefully people would just think I was a badass and not that I just really like the idea of a battle-axe because of the 2,000 hours I spent playing Runescape instead of talking to anyone in the seventh grade. RIP, adolescence.
There’s really nothing worse than someone who gets all up in your business. They stand to close, they talk too close, their breath smells like taco tuesday and by God, you just wish they’d go away before you stop thinking bad thoughts. That’s what this pin is for. It’s like insect repellant to deter people with no sense of personal space.
