Enamel pins have been all the rage for the past couple of years and there are now hundreds of enamel pin shops with bookish pins. Unfortunately, there’s still not too many YA books pins (or at least, not a huge variety of them) Many are still exclusive to book boxes or pre-order incentives. But we know that denim jackets are back in fashion and many book lovers have a lot of tote bags, so if you need some YA pins to decorate your jackets and bags, we’ve got you covered.
Jane Mount‘s shop is filled with pins that look like book covers! She includes the Harry Potter books, Percy Jackson, A Wrinkle in Time, and dozens of other books.
In Fable and Black‘s shop, you can find pins for Throne of Glass, A Court of Thorns and Roses, Harry Potter, and others, alongside some assorted non-bookish pins.
In addition to Harry Potter and Throne of Glass, which many shops have represented, Dust and Pages also has pins for Shadowhunters, Children of Blood and Bone, and Illuminae, plus some adult books and general bookish pins.
Already well known for candles and stationery, Icey Designs also has stunning enamel pins. Their designs include nods to King of Scars, The Cruel Prince, The Kiss of Deception, Strange the Dreamer, Shadow and Bone, Harry Potter, Shadowhunters, and We Hunt the Flame.
Iron and Ink Designs features a lot of pins inspired by adult fantasy, but a fair number of YA reads as well. They include Six of Crows, Shadow and Bone, The Cruel Prince, The Wicked King, King of Scars, Throne of Glass, A Court of Thorns and Roses, Illuminae, and Sky in the Deep.
Dreamy and Co is most popular for bookmarks, book sleeves, and a monthly subscription box, but they also have individual pins for sale honoring Throne of Glass, A Court of Thorns and Roses, Six of Crows, and Harry Potter.
YA, classics, and theater combine in Angela Animates‘s shop. She has beautiful pins inspired by The Cruel Prince, Grave Mercy, Harry Potter, and A Court of Thorns and Roses.
Some of the, uh, cheekiest pins come from Happy Hello Co. They have pins inspired by Harry Potter and ACOTAR and also pins of male main characters butts. (And if the pin version isn’t your fancy, they also come as magnetic bookmarks.)
If Funko Pops are your thing, Fandomly Selected focuses on creating characters into Funkos, but they also have a couple of pins for ACOTAR, Six of Crows, and King of Scars.
Chiqui Creates is new to the pin game, having focused on jewelry in the past, but her shop now includes a popular pin for The Cruel Prince.
Order of Chaos pins also began with a kickstarter. While that’s over, you can still pre-order some of their first line of pins, inspired by Percy Jackson, Ace of Shades, and Three Dark Crowns.
As we mentioned, book boxes are one of they best ways to get pins, but The Bookish Box is one company that has a lot of extras for sale, including ones for Twilight, the Lux series, ACOTAR, and Shatter Me.
Brio and Brandish currently has a variety of pins for Caraval, ACOTAR, and Throne of Glass, even selling them in bundles, plus a few adult fantasy pins.
Some authors are also taking it on themselves to sell pins – in addition to signed copies of their books and art prints and other goodies. Lauren James and Melinda Salisbury are two YA authors who you can buy directly from to support them and get cool swag.
New pin shops and kickstarters are popping up all the time, so if you don’t see a pin for a book you love, keep an eye out! And be sure to check in on pre-order campaigns. But if there’s a pin you’re really dying for, we always encourage you to go ahead and make it yourself.
