In 2015, determined to quit my shitty job, I spent the last $500 I had on 100 custom pins of an all-black owl design. If I could find 100 people to buy them, I could recoup my costs and do two new releases. I used a lot of matches at the time so I stuck the pins in empty matchbooks as packaging — and ended up selling them all. A friend suggested we call the company Strike Gently (thanks Louis).
Since that first weird owl pin I made in 2015 we’ve released 1000+ pins, patches, stickers and blankets, and built a community of 1m+ followers and 500,000+ customers. We do everything in-house, from design to customer service.
Our pins are made with gold, silver or black plated metals (either iron, nickel or zinc depending on the complexity of the design). Every pin is hand-filled with enamel. It's an intensive production process, and we only release/restock 95 pieces of each design at a time.
Our blankets are loom-woven, not printed. They are 100% cotton and made in the USA. They are machine washable and we suggest using a regular wash cycle and a low-heat dryer setting.
Blankets ship from a warehouse with more space in North Carolina, and pins ship from our little office in LA, so if you order both in the same order expect two different packages + tracking #'s!
We offer 30-day returns or exchanges.
If something arrives defective or breaks, we offer a 1-year free replacement policy.
We ship via USPS with a $5 flat rate. Orders over $49 ship free. Please allow 3-5 business days for us to pack your order and 3-4 days for USPS to deliver.
We have chosen to pack and ship your orders ourselves, rather than outsourcing to a third party firm, so we can make sure we satisfy every customer, include free gifts, etc. This is why our processing time is 3-5 days. Thanks for your patience. We are a small business with 7 employees, not Amazon. Tracking info will be emailed to you automatically once your order ships.
Blankets and pins are shipping in separate packages from their respective warehouses until further notice. If you order blankets and pins in the same order, they will arrive in two separate parcels with two separate tracking numbers. You will be emailed all necessary tracking info.
If there is any issue with your order, please email us by responding to your order confirmation or submitting the form on this page. We will make sure to take care of you if there is any issue.
Thanks for supporting our family-owned and operated company.
