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.
This pin is very stupid but I love it. Not sure why. It's probably because of the fact that anyone will look at you if you have something shaped like money on your lapel. Then they'll read the text and think, "Man, I'm very stupid. I assumed this guy had lots of money. Damn." Then they'll walk away. I love it.
Each week I usually feature one joke pin, one bootleg pin, one pink pin, and one pin that's just straight up well-designed. This is the latter: it's not easy to get this sort of detail and clarity on a tiny piece of metal. I've featured Paul before and he always manages to impress me. And I don't even know the guy! I mean, what's up with that, ladies and gents?
This pin is cute and transcendent. Anyone can (and should) wear it. In other words, it might be the most internet-friendly 2017 pin ever made. Why speak to strangers when you can just point to your lapel? There's only one thing you ever ask them anyway.
I always wondered why the My Little Pony revivalists didn't choose Polly Pocket instead. For one, Pocket is far classier. She's less childish. One might even dare to say, she's pretty cool. To my future wife and/or employer—please disregard that last statement. It's a joke. Purely for entertainment. I don't have a giant, valuable stash of limited edition Polly Pocket toys in my walk-in closet. I swear.
Fine, this one is dumb too, but I'd wear it, and I'm sort-of smart (I'm a genius). Nerd Pins is high on my list of top-quality designers. I've featured them before, and this month they've released a number of other quality pins worth checking out.
