The origins of PinMart date back to 1964 with Creative House Promotions, Inc. Creative House was part of many important and recognizable promotions such as Marvel Mini Books published in 1966 that featured Marvel Comic superheroes and The World's Smallest Book inserted in Cracker Jack boxes in the 1970's. In 1999 Creative House branded PinMart and developed the first of its kind e-commerce website selling lapel pins via the then burgeoning internet. By 2002 the PinMart brand outgrew its competitors and its parent company Creative House. In 2008, PinMart acquired Creative House and today PinMart, Inc. sells direct to consumers via its online store and through distributors under the Creative House line name.
The online store, www.pinmart.com, was first opened for business in October 1999 with 42 stock lapel pins and utilized five different styles of custom lapel pin processes to make special order pins. Since then PinMart has added thousands of new products and many new product lines. Today PinMart’s online business has grown significantly and is now the internet's number one provider of lapel pins, emblems, lanyards, and recognition items. We continue to invest in new facilities, products, technology, and employees so that we can provide our customers with the best selection, quality, and service available in the emblem industry.
