IHOP Custom Blinky Pin for Client DineEquity

We were first approached in 2013 by DineEquity, parent company of IHOP restaurants, to make a custom Red Heart blinkee pin with the IHOP logo.

Yes, we try to count our blessings as often as we can.

The great thing about working with a large corporation like DineEquity is that they usually have their ducks in a row. In this case our contact was able to provide us with a logo in vector format, which made design and production easy. However, we can usually work with whatever artwork can be provided and we help customers create artwork when needed.

Once we had closed the deal with DineEquity we submit artwork to our blinkee shop to begin production:

They wanted to start with 1000 pins, so our blinkee shop got right to work and sent us some technical diagrams for our approval to begin production:

Next, China went into production and sent us a photo of the printed circuit board with LEDs installed and artwork silkscreened, but before being cut into individual shapes for the blinkees:

Before long production was complete and we sent DineEquity their tracking info. The email we received in reply was classic:

Hi Matt:
Just as I received your email, our mail room brought up my package.
Looks great! Thank you!

They must have been very pleased because they have reordered every year since!
