Political Buttons - A Diversion

Political Pins
Elizabeth Warren. Bernie Sanders. Kamala Harris. Pete Buttigieg. Michelle Obama. Ruth Bader Ginsburg. This is just the beginning of my new project. Using the same technique as our Laser Cut Art Images, I thought it would be fun to take a stab at political figures. I collaborated with a talented illustrator. With her drawing finesse and my Photoshop skills, we created these. I'm currently test marketing our new pins on Etsy. Want to be the first to wear one of these? Find them in the Dunitz Etsy Shop. (Want a custom pin for your organization? Dunitz & Company can do it for you. Just let me know.)

Test Marketing
How else do you test market such pins?  I recently took them on the road.  I had a table showing off our fair trade jewelry at the annual conference of women judges. What better testing ground is there for these pins than the ladies of NAWJ.  I proudly showed off the Fair Trade Federation logo and shared what it meant for Dunitz & Company to be a proud member.

Modeling The Girls
Of course, while there, I modeled "The Girls"! The women judges snapped up lots of pins. Several judges didn't want to be political. What did that mean?  Even though, I sold many, I didn't sell out of the 2020 presidential candidate pins. Guess which one did sell out? Come on, you know! Which famous person is on every female judge's pedestal?

Modeling RGB
 RGB, of course! Already reordered more production.

Pin Me
Want to support one of your favorite candidates and support fair trade at the same time?  Sport an original pin-back button from Dunitz & Company. Don't want to be political? No worries. You can still support fair trade with Dunitz & Company's fused glass and beaded jewelry. Are you willing to share with the world about this new project I masterminded?
