Pin Design

Here's the die pattern that will be striking the Miskatonic Australian expedition pins.



The finished pin will have an antiqued brass finish and a butterfly clasp in the back. The only change from the conventional black and white logo is a highlight line along the top of Ayer's Rock. This is the first time I've done a pin so I'm looking forward to seeing both how it looks and how it sells.

I believe you are just trying to get my whole paycheck. Have you thought about turning the Miskatonic University Seal into a similar pin?

I don't like to produce things that someone is already manufacturing, but it looks like nobody is actually selling a Miskatonic logo pin.

Have you seen the alumni pin from Dagon Industries?

They make some very nice stuff.

Actually, no, I hadn't seen those before. They do look pretty good, and I may pick up one sometime. But the pin for my MU Letter jacket is not the same as the pin for the tassel on my mortarboard ;-)

Very cool. Again, a definite winner. Looking forward to getting one of these when they're available.
