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.

Citrus Sharp

Nostalgia pins are a dime a dozen, so there are a few classic concepts I'm surprised to see so infrequently. Here's one! Retro Game Boy is one of those neo-nostalgic gaming icons that doesn't make you look like a loser, so wear it loud and wear it proud.

Duffy Pin Co

Eight years ago I loved Donnie Darko and today I love Bob's Burgers. Neither of these pristine works of entertainment make any linear sense, so let's celebrate them in unison with this hybrid bootleg pin from Duffy Pin Co.

$9.00 here.

Morgan Burton

This is a great pin because it captures both sides of the political spectrum—everyone, whether they like him or not, thinks Donald Trump is a troll. I have nothing bad to say about this pin since it manages to be political and infallible at the same time, a true achievement indeed.

$10.00 here.

Gilbert Martinez

One of my favorite memes is "Slavs Squatting In Tracksuits," so this combined with one of my favorite childhood shows is a double-whammy, much like the Frank/Louise pin. Hint hint— if you want to start a pin company, just combine two semi-ironic pop cultural memetic trends and viola, you've got a viral concept.

$12.00 here.

Strike Gently Co

After 1.5 years of writing this column, I'm featuring my own damn pin. I didn't design it, but my cousin did. It's a dinosaur ghost that glows in the dark, because #neverforget the Mesozoic.
