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.

N California

This pin is crowdfunded, which means it's even more millennial friendly than other pins. It's also probably the longest pin I've ever seen. Wink wink ;). There are only a few days left to grab one of these so get it while the gettin's good, ya fuckin nerds.

$10.00 here.

Budz Pins

The dab meme ship has thoroughly sailed, but copyright infringement never gets old. This particular squid-humanoid creature from a television show about a sponge-humanoid creature is an entirely original design and won't draw any attention from a corporation that starts with V and ends with M.

$7.50 here.

Alex Pardee

In case you thought I cared, here's another one. This one required some artistic finesse so it doesn't count as infringement. I don't think the previous one did either since it qualifies as "parody". It doesn't matter. I call this one "terror sponge".

$12.00 here.

Natelle Draws Stuff

This artist does tons of these bug pins as well as a bunch of other completely original hand-drawn natural designs. I love these things. The detail and quality of production is fantastic and they just look cool as hell. I'm gonna cover my backpack with bugs.

$10.00 here.


I made a pin recently that just said "ANXIETY" and a lot of people got upset but this one is way more terrifying. It's both a great representation of what anxiety actually is like and it also looks gnarly as hell. If you're gonna have to go through hell all the time why not wear its personification proudly on your lapel?

$15.00 here.

Ok, that's it. Go check out my shop:
