Cute & Snarky Enamel Pins from West Park Creative

Enamel pins aren’t quite stationery, but I consider them to be honorary members of the stationery family, especially since there are lots o’ paper goods shops that have added awesome pins to their collections in the last year or so.

These totally craveable enamel pins from West Park Creative are the perfect combination of cute and snarky. You’ll find a chicken with attitude, an indifferent bear, an owl hoo doesn’t give a crap, and a piñata giving the side eye among the smile-inducing pins in the West Park Creative shop. And you’ll also find the most hilariously awesome whale enamel pin that I ever did see, plus the perfect pin for anyone who has ever found themselves trying to hit the “undo” button in non-virtual situations.

Be sure to head on over to West Park Creative to check out all of their “sweetly offensive” ephemera and greeting cards.
