What Is Patches & Pins Expo?

Patches & Pins Expo has been the premier platform connecting creatives in the embroidered patch and enamel pin industries with the public since 2015. In the following years, it has grown into a vast, immersive flare event, incorporating fresh and inspiring pins, patches, art, and fashion from around the U.S.

When you go to a PnP event, you’re part of a truly special experience in which artists, vendors, and collectors have the opportunity to buy, sell, trade, and network all in one place. We’re beyond excited to be supporting the following upcoming PnP events:

Austin, TX – May 19th, 2019

Why We Love PnP

At The/Studio, we live and breathe patches and pins, so there’s really nothing we love more than designers, brands, collectors, and even newbies coming together over a shared love of flare. PnP gives both creatives and collectors the space to truly celebrate the art of enamel pins and embroidered patches.

Plus, we can’t wait to meet some of the brilliant collectors whose creations we’ve helped bring to life through The/Studio’s on-demand manufacturing platform.
