Get to know the Owners

Alan and Ashley of Begin Industries

Begin Industries is owned and operated by a husband and wife team, Alan Swenson and Ashley Begin, located in Washington, D.C.  Ashley works full-time on Begin Industries packing up products and designing new enamel pins.  Alan works during the day as an Audio Producer and on nights and weekends finalizes the pin proofs, manages manufacturing, and makes listings.  We relocated from Las Vegas to Washington, D.C. in 2017 and love the city.  We get a lot of our inspiration for pins from walking around the city and visiting museums and monuments.  We are passionate about spies, conspiracy theories, plants (especially succulents and cactus), good food and tasty brews.  We enjoy making short videos for Instagram to showcase our Pins.

Please contact us with any questions or just to say Hi, we would love to hear form you.
