All Sour Attitude Club pins are filled and polished by hand by real humans, so no pin is perfect and no two are exactly the same. I check EVERY pin for flaws a minimum of two times to be sure that everyone receives the highest quality pin when ordering Standard grade.
♡ Small area of underfilled enamel
♡ A few specks, scratches, or bubbles in the enamel
♡ Small scratches or discoloration/tarnish on the metal plating
♡ A few pieces of mismatched glitter within the glitter areas
♡ Oxidation/bubbling of metal plating
♡ Larger debris embedded in enamel
♡ Larger scratches or scuffs in enamel
♡ Tiny unfilled area
♡ Noticeably misaligned screen-printing
Where are you located?
As of November 2017, we are located in Maine.
What is a seconds/b-grade pin?
Seconds/b-grade means that these pins have minor defects such as black specks or dust embedded in the enamel.
Why do you use rubber clutches instead of metal?
Rubber clutches prevent pin posts rom breaking/bending during shipment, while metal butterfly clasps often get crushed while traveling.
Is there a way to fix a bent pin post?
Yes! Place a rubber clutch on the pin post, then gently (and SLOWLY) push the needle back in place. It should take 20 seconds or less. You can also use a pair of pliers to gently bend the post back.
Who is your manufacturer?
Currently, I like to keep my production partners secret. It takes months to years of trial and error to find a good factory. I gave out my manufacturer's information in the past, only to have them become super busy, which caused the quality decrease.
Can we collaborate?
Of course! ♡ But only if you're an artist and would like to work together to create a product. Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
