Artland have bought the rights to create several Disney pins, as such these are official Disney pins. They are like ACME pins, which we will cover in more detail later in this article.
They don't have the Official Pin Trading stamp on the back of them, but they do have a copyright Disney stamp.
Artland pins are very desirable. Collectors try to complete different series, or adding to their character/movie collections.
The pins are high quality and go through a vetting process with the artists, the manufacturers, and Disney before getting signed off. Whilst I'm sure it has happened, I haven't seen an Artland pin with visible flaws.
Trading Artland Pins
Because Artland pins are officially licensed pins and have the Disney copyright on the back, they would be fine to trade in parks.
Limited Edition Artland Pins
Certificate of Authenticity
Each of the pins comes with a backing card which doubles as its certificate of authenticity.
Buying Artland Pins
If you're reading this and thinking, oh wow, I want some of these Artland pins, then you'll be happy to know there are several places you can buy them online.
- In the UK you can buy from Pulse Gallery, which also sells some of the older ACME pins. We also highly recommend buying from DisneyPinTraderUK who sells a mixture of pins.
- In the US you can buy from DPB Store, these folks also sell some of the older ACME pins, as well as official Disney pins.
Cost of Artland Pins
When buying new from official resellers, the cost of the pins is reasonable considering the limited edition sizes and the quality.
The majority of pins sell for between £20-£60 ($30-$70), with some pins coming in more expensive.
For example, this Marie pin is going for £120 new. We have seen this pin in real life, it is massive! The detailing is incredible.
A company called ACME used to make these types of pins. ACME were in business for some time and built up quite the name for themselves in the pin trading community.
ACME no longer owns the license with Disney. The license has transferred to Artland.
The good news is Artland uses the same designers as ACME used. This explains why the designs look so similar.
You can think of Artland as a continuation of the ACME pins. There will be no new ACME pins made, only Artland.
