Zippy Pins offers an eclectic collection of witty and sometimes irreverent sayings for fiber artists, all of which are available as pin back buttons, magnets, key chains, and zipper pulls in a variety of sizes. They also just created bumper stickers with some of their most popular sayings that allow you to show your love for knitting and spinning! Their products are handmade using quality materials and would make great stocking stuffers or small gifts for guild friends.
Zippy Pins is a mother and daughter collaboration born out of a creativity and passion for helping people share and connect over hobbies, sports and collections as well as social and environmental causes with humor. Mom is Jamie O’Sullivan – Director of PINnovation AKA Chief PINhead – married mother of six. Daughter is Jenna Montgomery – Chief PINnovation Officer – 29 years old – proud mom of a long haired Chihuahua and 4 cats.
Starting out as Emblazon Yourself on eBay in January 2008, they quickly decided to create an e-commerce website and renamed their business Zippy Pins. The website ZippyPins.com was launched in October 2009.
This year at the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival, Zippy Pins debuted their new collection of bumper stickers. They are printed on durable vinyl with a protective laminate and pressure sensitive adhesive so it will stay on your car (or any other smooth surface) and will look great for years to come. You can see their display in this great Letsknit2gether Video at about the 9 minute mark.
The bumper stickers come in three sizes:
Rectangle 3” x 11.25”
Oval 4” x 6”
Rectangle 7.25” x 3.75”
