    @disneykins

    Did you ever get the pins? I haven’t and I haven’t heard from them either. Just wondering if anyone knew anything about the status of shipping or heard anything.

    I see the Pinopolis Store has opened back up again. I thought Pinopolis was no longer associated with pins. Does anyone know what going on?

    Their Instagram said they were reopening it. They keep insisting it's not the same owners, but this is not convincing me.

    Looks like an inventory dump. Prices are still crazy!

    Dunno if these are old orders, but from comments looks like they are responding to people with outstanding orders?

    I think those were orders from the on line sale they had last week.

    Did they respond other than saying they got your message?

    I’ve replied to just about every post they’ve made on IG about mailing pins and messages them through IG messenger. This was the first that they have responded to my reply both on the wall and through private message. I had previously sent photos of my orders and requests for updates through both email and IG dm to the IG account and previous email addresses with no response.

    I am optimistic this time as someone responded to me. They asked for more details so I resent all my order numbers and the list of unsent pins (2 pins with orders of two). The person responding replied that they found it on the April order and I should receive it next week. I am hopeful.

    Looks like, in the UK at least, it's being produced by Artland:

    Is artland an Acme rebrand or did they get licensed from Disney to make other pins?

    Looks like they are a distributor or licensed reseller. If you go on their site, the certificate says ACME.

    Yes. It's right on the front and back of the card in the @starry_solo post above. artlanduk.com

    I'm glad the whole process was explained as to the relationships between artland, ACME, and Disney. Thanks for the link!
