Our Story

At Alchemy, we're passionate about providing solutions that empower artists and creators to fulfill their vision. Our mission is to create a safe haven for overseas production and equip artists with a reliable, quality focused experience.  Whether it’s custom pins or one of the myriad of products Alchemy offers, we continue to expand our selections to help artists broaden their canvas of possibilities.  We stand as a committed production partner in your creative journey—focusing on quality, collaboration, and education to elevate every project to its highest potential.  

Providing a collaborative and educational experience has always been and will always be the foundation of what we do at Alchemy.  We want you to be part of the process and learn about what goes into making products.  We think that educating creators helps us achieve the best possible outcomes.  

We have the experience.  Alchemy has helped creators make over 4 million custom products since 2016.  We want to help you go beyond promotional products and into truly custom merchandise that represents your business and takes you to the next level.  Being an independent creator can be wrought with uphill challenges.  We exist to make your life easier.  Our team is made up of fellow creators and brand owners.  We are you and understand the intricacies of being an independent artist.  

Alchemy launched in March 2019 as an extension of Pin Game Strong as the products we offered began to expand far beyond pins.  Pin Game Strong was born on the day my wife and I found out that we were pregnant with our soon-to-be daughter, Ruby, fittingly on Father’s Day of 2016.  I had been making pins since 2014 for my clothing brand and other artists started reaching out to me for help.  The original goal was to help others by providing a trustworthy resource for making enamel pins.  It quickly became clear how badly creatives needed reliable support and Pin Game Strong rocketed out of the gate.

My background has always been in creating.  A musician in my youth, I slept on floors in a punk band, went to college as a jazz performance major (I still play punk…and listen to jazz). I then became an art major where I found another outlet to explore my creative energy.  I was never the best artist, but I had a good eye and I loved making things.  The process and concepts were what motivated my work and that still holds true today.  Helping others create became my mission and Alchemy is the vehicle.
