NSS Pins awarded for salon ribbons?

Postby rchrds » Jul 24, 2014 9:20 am

I swear I saw someone post on facebook a picture of little round pins (about the same size as the fellow/year pins) with either a blue or green star on them and some wording pinned on to salon ribbons. Anyone have any idea where these cave from? I don't think they were salon specific and I know the Cartography salon wants to come up with a pin- would sure hate to reproduce work when they already exist.

Yes, I saw one which was awarded for the print salon. Perhaps try contacting the salon chair?

Jason, yes they are given out by the Art Salon. Contact Carolina Shrewsbury.

Here is a pic of them.


Jason Hardy and I would absolutely LOVE it if the Cartography Section would print a patch or pin with the new logo you designed... Or even a shirt... Gary Soule sent Dwight the information on how to get a patch. They are relatively cheap for 100 patches.
