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.
It's hard to find any pro-America memorabilia that doesn't involve tacky fonts, debatably ironic guns, or generally low-hanging fruit. But why? We live in a wonderful place and should be proud of our better qualities—and ready to throw our dukes up for 'em just like lady liberty.
While we're on the topic of distinctly American inventions, let's talk about CRUSHING DEBT. PSA Press hasn't released a bad pin yet, so hopefully they're either A.) Debt-free or B.) Paying off those heady art school loans faster than I can misspell "Baldessari." They deserve to be in the green.
While we're on the topic of ART HISTORY... (All of these are segueing beautifully.) This pin is a millennial hipster's (me) wet dream. It's got art, it's got Romanticism, it's got religious parody and, yes that's right folks, it's got dick jokes. What more could you ask for?
Inner Decay recently teamed up with the all-female co-working space project The Wing to release these pins of some badass gals. I've been a member of many a unisex co-working spaces and, let me tell you, they're filled with smug business grads yelling on their Airpods to their 'investors' (read: oil fortune-bearing aunts and uncles) about how they need more "startup capital" (read: cocaine money). I'm fully in favor of all-female co-working spaces, even (read: especially) if I'm not allowed in.

BONUS: Brat Box
So this isn't a pin release, per se, but there aren't that many specialty products in the pin game, so I figured I'd highlight one of the finest. Brat Box is a pin and patch subscription service that works with dozens of quality brands and artists. Unless you're 11 years old, you're probably not an Instagram Pro. That means you miss a lot of stuff you'd probably love but can't find thanks to the fast-paced nature of memes. Brat Box saves time by shipping you a themed box every month. It's cheap, too. Cheap enough to make me wish I had thought of the idea first. Happy spending.
