Resolve: Donate Blood

Ah, New Year’s resolutions. The time when we’re all dedicated to losing 10 pounds, increasing our savings, and finally taking up the Hawaiian electric pedal steel guitar (or maybe that’s just me?). Whatever you set your mind to do to improve yourself, I wish you the best of luck! And if you’re still looking for something to add to your list of resolutions, may I suggest making a habit of donating blood? Continue reading

Ho, ho, ho-me Depot!

How do you celebrate the holidays? Tinsel everything in sight? Bake and eat delicious holiday recipes? Singing songs, wrapping gifts, spending time with family? Those are all ideal as far as I’m concerned, but what about when you’re at work? Especially when you don’t have a cube to decorate or you can’t wear your famed ugly Christmas sweater? Well, if you’re looking for suggestions, keep an eye out for this holiday season’s Home Depot commercials: you’ll see a number of our great holiday lapel pins, looking quite at home on the front of those iconic orange work aprons.

Customizable Lanyards Make Great Goody Bag Gifts

When you’re throwing an office party for Halloween, you don’t just want to buy a couple of bags of candy as favors; a lot of your workers will see nothing but candy for a few weeks, what with the leftovers from their kids and whatever the trick or treaters don’t take. Besides, individually-wrapped Snickers bars and Hershey’s Kisses aren’t exactly imaginative. If you’re looking for something unique to offer your workers, here are some suggestions from us at PinMart for things that will be useful and/or enjoyable: Continue reading

Who Do You Wear Pink For?

I’m not ashamed to admit that pink is my absolute favorite color. I’m not a girly girl but I do love a good pink… well, anything. But in October, pink takes on a different meaning for me. Breast cancer awareness month certainly doesn’t need me hyping it for people to remember that it exists, for sure: the color pink is everywhere. On football players, lighting up iconic buildings, on swag of every ilk. But just because breast cancer awareness has a great marketing team, doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t still be discussed, or supported. Continue reading

PinMart 2.0!

Change is hard for some people. I’m one of them. Even just changing something as small as the order I get myself together in in the morning can totally throw off my whole day! But sometimes, even if it’s hard, change is good. That’s the case with PinMart! Yesterday we launched a brand new website, the first time we’ve done so since 2006! It was a nerve-wracking day, going “dark” as it were, for a number of hours to repopulate all the information and pins and patches and bracelets… but this morning everything is just as it should be, even if everything looks and feels entirely different!

How American Flag Pins Bring Us Together

14 years. And yet, the time before September 11th, and the time after seem both very immediate and also eternal, as if it’s always been this way. I still vividly remember listening to the radio while getting ready for school and hearing the confused, panicked voices of the DJs, and thinking that it was surely some very weird sort of joke, like Orson Wells’ “War of the Worlds” back in the 1940’s. But no, it was no joke, though the reality of it took a long time to sink in. Continue reading

The Importance of Medical ID Bracelets

While a medical ID bracelet, pin or necklace may not be the hottest accessory, it can help save a person’s life. If you’re someone who has a medical condition that cannot be easily recognized, wearing a medical ID tag is very essential. Continue reading
