Pins n' Crests, Our Story..

Pins n' Crests was established in 1955 as N.K Souviners by Mr Norbert Kamning. Pin by pin Mr Kamning expanded the business to the point where it grew into one of the largest suppliers of custom lapel pins in Canada. Mr Kamning was an avid skier and he focused his marketing towards the many ski resorts in Canada.

There is probably not one single ski resort in Canada that we haven't designed a lapel pin for. Back in those days all of the designs were hand drawn and coloured and then faxed to the factory for production.

Mr Kamming also concentrated on Governments, schools and large corporations. Later in his life Mr Kamning fell ill with Parkinsons disease and was unable to continue operating N.K Souviniers.

Many years slipped by after Mr Kamnings passing with little activity, until the remaining assets and inventory were acquired by David Bristow of Bowen island.

Since then we have reconnected with many of our old clients as well as acquiring 100's of new clients.
