What is Brat Box
It’s pins. It’s patches. It’s artists. And it might be you (if you’re cool enough).
Brat Box is the creme de la creme of pin and patch clubs. In fact, we are the ONLY pin and patch club out there. We offer a subscription service where members get a curated box of pins, patches and artist content delivered straight to their door every month. Surprised monthly. Enjoyed daily.
Members get more benefits than just the box!
Members get exclusive discounts of up to 20% off any order in the shop, plus free shipping. You’ll also get to trade-in one pin or patch every four months. For more information on how this works click here.>
Simply put, Brat Box was created to help spread the word about independent artists by creating an awesome customer experience that made collecting pins and patches even more exciting, and well... easier.
But why pins and patches?
If you have to ask maybe Brat Box isn’t for you just yet.
There's a big resurgence of independent artists transferring their artwork into wearable goods like pins and patches. Now, illustrators, graphic designers, cartoonist and even tattoo artists have a medium to make their work accessible for mass audiences. This has spawned a big (and highly engaged) community of pin and patch heads that are now able show support for their favorite artists without having to spend loads of money on prints that noone will ever see.
And these aren't your grandma's pins.
They're an awesomely easy, affordable and addicting way to add some personal flair to the everyday. And it’s becoming quite the fashion trend as style bloggers and celebrities have been seen sporting their pieces of flair by making big statements on leather jackets, bags, beanies and denim.
To the touch.
We lose a lot of the physical world to the internet these days. We share, and tag our friends in funny memes and create our zeitgeist of pop cultural references, but these tokens of recognition seem fleeting. A majority of the work that has been emerging is a reflection of our times. Each piece designed as a way to represent parts of our personalities, but in a 3-D form that you can touch, wear, collect and gift! But CAUTION: starting a collection can lead to addiction.
So how does Brat Box work?
We're glad you asked! We work with independent artist to curate you a box of pins and patches that’ll you’ll love each month. Since we want your pin and patch collection to represent what you love we’ll ask you to choose specific themes each month to help us get it right. To start a membership, choose a plan, and last but certainly not least, we’ll send you a txt/email three to four weeks before each box ships so you can choose a theme for the month. Once we’ve finished curating you the perfect selection of pins and patches we’ll ship them straight to your door beautifully packaged featuring content about each artist.

Why wouldn’t I just buy my own pin and patches?
For starters, we’re not saying you shouldn’t. In fact, you should become a member and still buy your own. Doctors recommend at least on pin or patch for every outfit. Support independent art every chance you get.
But foreals, we buy large quantities so we are able to get price breaks and pass savings onto you. Most of the pins and patches we offer run at retail for $8 to $14 each. When you factor in shipping you’re looking at $12 to $17 for one pin. Some plans will save you up to 35% compared buying them yourself. And, we’re professional pin and patch heads so we have our ear to the ground and know who has the hottest stuff out there. If all that’s not enough, from time to time we’ll be offering exclusive pins and patches, and artist content that you won’t get anywhere else.

(3) Next. Picking your theme! We required that you fork over your mobile phone number during the sign-up process, so make sure your number is correct. Theme selection messages are usually sent out around the 10 to the 15th of every month. Follow up message will be sent to members who have not yet chosen their monthly theme, or to members who join after the initial theme selection messages are sent. If you sign up after the 24th of the month, it's likely you missed the cutoff so you'll receive the next month's box shipment. This means you'll have to wait to pick your theme until the 10-15th of the next month. Usually there will be 2 to 3 themes that you can choose from each month. Picking your theme is a very important step because it helps us make sure we are finding pins and patches that you’ll wear proudly.
From the day that we txt you the theme link you have 7 days to make a selection or we’ll end up picking you the most popular theme.
What if you missed the theme txt?
Don’t worry, we sent you an email as well. You have 7 days to make a selection or we’ll end up picking you the most popular theme.
(3) Next. You chill. We work. You collect.
We’ll work with all our artist friends to curate an assortment of pins or patches that you’ll wear proudly. Then, we ship them straight to your doorstep for you to wear, collect or gift!
Get a cork board, this is going to get out of hand
How long does it take to ship after I sign up?
We typically ship out on the first of every month unless we’ve notified you otherwise. US domestic shipments usually take about 4 to 5 business days to arrive, and up to 10 business days for international. If you sign up after the 15th of any given month you’ll be put on the next month schedule which means your first box won’t ship out until the next-next month.
Can I change my plan?
Yes. But you will be shipped the box corresponding to the last plan you will billed for. Your new plan will kick in next shipment.
No sendy backsies. But as a member you’ll get the option to trade in. Click here to learn more.
