Safety Pin was inspired by the cover of the June 1946 Ladies Home Journal. From the mildewy examples I found, it appears their logotype was different for each issue in those days. I started with J-O-U-R-N-A-L and imagined safety pins bent and twisted to form the other characters. May be the first font that appeals to both crafters and punks. The Regular version of the font has white highlights like Ringpin; the Solid version does not so you can create your own effects and shadows.
