3 On A YA Theme: YA Enamel Pins To Drool About

The enamel pin trend rages on, and it’s one I love. Enamel pins are cute, creative, and—for the most part—an affordable indulgence. They’re perfect on denim jackets, on bags, or displayed on things like banners and buntings (with tons of other places they’re great on, too).

YA hasn’t lacked in leaning into the enamel pin trend. They’ve popped up both all over Etsy and as preorder incentives for upcoming books. I’ve rounded up a few of both in this post: some you can buy now, and some that came as preorder incentives which you likely can’t score anymore. But never fear: it’s likely this trend will hang on for a while and you might be able to snag some sweet enamel swag for one of your favorite books in the future.

I’ve been loose in defining “YA” for the purposes of this post.

How great are the pins made that match the cover of Lily Anderson’s Undead Girl Gang? Super into the neon green coffin, personally.

These food truck pins—honoring KoBra, the food truck that plays a central role in the book—are such an awesome promotional idea for Maurene Goo’s The Way You Make Me Feel.

Like I said, I’ve been loose with my definition of YA because I needed to include this. Goosebumps! Enamel! Pin! You can pick up this enamel pin for $9.50.
