Bootlegged Pins

My pins are being bootlegged by a company in china. So do not buy them unless they are through me via pre-orders/my ecrater shop or someone I have listed as an official reseller of them.

You can tell if they are are my original pins very easy, as mine have the company where I get them manufactured web address stamped on the back. The bootlegs do not have any such stamp and are blank.

Current Official Resellers include:
Purple Tinker


  1. I bought all of mine from you, but surprisingly only 2 were marked. :P

  2. Looking at my pins (which I picked up from you at Bronycon), only the Elements of Harmony and Nightmare Night pins have the url stamp. All the others (silhouettes and a Discord) do not have the url stamp.

    Also, I discovered while going through my pins that the pin had broken off of the Luna silhouette at some point. I am sad now.

  3. Lol, I'm an official seller too but only of the TPM Airship pin. :)

  4. Heh, this is how you know you've officially arrived. When someone's bootlegging your product.
