Super Team Deluxe is the best place for nerdy pins. Find out how a pair of computer geeks created the “collaborative funhouse”.
Have you ever looked at an online store and wanted everything on the site?
That was how I felt when I first saw Super Team Deluxe. As a geek, seeing all those pop culture references in pin and sticker form excited me. But how did STD come about? And how awkward is that abbreviation?
A super team indeed
The team behind Super Team Deluxe like to call themselves “a collaborative funhouse” and it certainly seems that way. The products they create are unique, quirky, and geeky as hell.
The company is the brainchild of designers Rogie King and Justin Mezzell. The “official” team also includes Hannah Mezzell, Drew Melton and Alicja Colon. With a creative bunch like that, it’s no wonder their products and designs are so vibrant and nerdy.
What does Super Team Deluxe create?
They say they “haven’t thought too much about the future” but right now STD sell lapel pins, patches, and stickers.
A while back, they released a series called Sci-Fidelity: A Gallery of Miniature Proportions, perfect for fans of Star Wars, Total Recall, and Stranger Things. Most of the range is sold out as I write this, but there are still some left, including a “cute” Face Hugger pin and a Gremlin patch.
There are plenty of other niches if sci-fi isn’t your bag.
- The Ghosts of Shows Past – A collection of limited edition products centred on computer games, movies and more
- BFGS – Loads of video game pins and stickers, basically
- A Gallery Far, Far Away – Star Wars pins
They even sell hats. Their Internet Dad baseball cap is quintessentially 90s, harking back to the days when Apple struggled and came back.
Prices that aren’t out of this world
I wish I could buy every pin, sticker, patch, print, and hat they have. I love it all. And it’s affordable, with most items priced at $10. Shipping to the UK comes in at $15, which is more reasonable than some vendors I’ve bought from in the US.
If you need to spruce up a jacket or bag, Super Team Deluxe have you covered with essential accessories for gamers, programmers, designers, and every geekazoid in between. Huzzah!
