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.

Everyone loves nostalgia now that every year is officially a little worse than the last. Is the past real? Does it even matter, man? I don’t know, but buying things always makes a good American feel better. Check out these nostalgic pins, mostly 80s/90s. They make me feel better.

PSA Press is included in pretty much every weekly roundup I write, in short because they release a killer pin almost every week. How do I figure out how do that? Still working on it. Buy this sick pool party pin and stay tuned for whatever these mad dogs release next week.

Before Eric Wareheim was directing absurdist TV ads and Eric Andre was deconstructing dead late-night tropes, Andy Kaufman was out there writing the book on throwing wrenches into the wheels of the entertainment industry. Before hipsterdom was a tired cliché, Kaufman lived a mysterious life of irony. I love him. Can you tell?? RIP, Andy. I know you’re still out there, backyard wrestling on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean.

We live in difficult times. The modern world is crumbling, people don’t know right from wrong, and cars are driving themselves. What could sooth us more than peace, love, and booty? Let us congregate on the steps of the Church of Butts and worship that sacred curve.

Before loser garage rock bands were touring in these, they were driven by actual moms of a certain glorious decade. They might have been slow and heavy, but they got the kids wherever they needed to go. But then, after the kids graduated Oberlin, they inherited them like chariots to carry them to empty gigs in obscure Midwestern cities. Pay tribute to The Van.

That’s all, folks. Get 20% off at Strike Gently Co this week with code DOODOO.
