Why is it Flaky Friday? I forgot to tell you about my pins. Well, I half-forgot; I also wasn't sure how to respond to requests to buy them without seeming like too much of a tease. Since I grew up in Jersey, I've walked that line between clarity and abruptness, but in this situation I must be blunt:
Not For Sale!
This time around, I went with 1/2" circles, embossed die cast metal, brushed silver surface. Much happier! I worked with a company in Michigan called Maxwell Medals & Awards, a vendor I used for sports awards probably 15 years ago. They always had high quality products and great service, and it was great to work with them again.
Using the logo I created a couple years ago, we made 300 pins, and the idea is to give them away as an in-person thank you to family, friends and supporters. That means I probably should've ordered more than 300. It's a good start, though. The pins were not cheap, about 90 cents more than last year's, per/pin, but worth it!
