Wanna join the Pin Head Originals gang?

Would you like us to rustle you something up?! We have been peddling pins online for over 3 years and are totally immersed in the pin community. Pin Head is up to date with all the newest styles, finishes and techniques if you want something a bit different we can do something really special. I have created pins from a conversation, a pencil sketch, a photograph. All we need from you is a basic idea. Send us a bunch of google pics over if you like as a starting point. Pin Head founder Amy also has a degree in marketing and is happy to help advise as best she can with tips on promoting your pins, your event or brand. Please see below just some of the designs we have created for other people. Another way to see Pin Head artwork is to follow our instagram page. You will see that we are very versatile and are able to adapt to your brand or given criteria.

Right now this entire business is being run by one little person. There is a designers fee for graphic design services that must be paid in advance of the work being done. This is to protect us from spending hours designing and people pulling out and changing their minds. We hope that sounds fair. This is £35 for each unique design or £70 for stylised backing card and pin design package (simple card designs are included in card price).

Many people come with logos or designs that are very nearly ready to be made into pins. I do not charge for simple amendments. If you’re not sure please get in touch here.

Mattas

This is the first commission that Pin Head did. Mattas Amy’s (PH founder) previous employer asked could she design and create a pin badge to celebrate their family business; an international food shop based in Liverpool’s busy Bold Street.  The shop has quite a loyal following due to being open for 30+ years. It was a pleasure to work on this very bespoke and personal project. A painting depicting the street was created for the backing card so the pin badge could sit nestled in the painting. Everyone loved the pins. This is a soft enamel pin with black dyed base, the inspiration for the pin was simply the Mattas shop itself. The backing card was hand-painted and reduced down in size. If you would like to know more about customised cards please ask on the contact form or see if we are available to chat in our chatbox (bottom right corner of your screen).

Baby Jesus Fox

We have been following a dead stuffed fox rise to fame on Instagram for a while now. Baby Jesus Fox is one in a million. His owner (who has the papers to prove he was roadkill) has been dressing the little critter up as celebrities and everyone has fallen in love with him. We were ecstatic to work with one of our heroes. We tried to capture the fun-loving nature of BJF in the pin. His fans went wild for the pins and they sold out in a matter of days. We often get requests for pins for peoples pets but this one was something a little bit different! This is a hard enamel pin with black nickel outline. The teeth have been screen printed on because they are so small.

Bromborough Bowl

This bowling alley pin for Bromborough Bowl in the Wirral was a treat. The design brief was simply to create something fun and colourful to award children visiting the bowling alley for their birthday. The backing cards really compliment the pin adding an extra pop of colour. Please ask about backing cards when ordering. This is a soft enamel pin with black dyed base. The pins went down brilliantly with the children and BB have reordered more to keep up with the number of parties they are hosting.

Bongo’s Bingo

In 2018 Jonny Bongo of Bongo’s Bingo commissioned Pin Head to create a 9 piece pin set, which would be gifted to their staff and venue hosts. This was an excellent challenge, Pin Head was a fan of the Liverpool brand; a cross between good old fashioned (2 little ducks style) bingo that your nan like to play and a rave. It sounds nuts and it is! The task was to depict some of the key memorable characters and features that the show is famous for. We had a meeting with the team to decide on the pin themes and here we have the set. Anyone who has attended BB, in any of the countries they have operated in, including France, Australia and Dubai will get the references. I can recommend it if it comes to a town near you. The design project was one of our favourites, we love doing character pins. To give the gift a real premium quality feels we even organised branded boxes to house the pin set. Everyone went wild for the limited edition pins. We were inundated with requests. We are always happy to go the extra mile to see your pin related dreams to fruition. Just ask, no idea is too ridiculous.
