Help bring this sweet pin series to life with your pledge! I have experience with designing and creating my own enamel pins, however this is the first time that I have used Kickstarter to fund them, and I am very excited! With that in mind I have kept the reward tiers simple, allowing backers to chose one, two, three or four pins from the ones seen below.
Here are the pin designs that backers may choose from:
90% will go to Manufacturing Fees including the creation of the molds, enamel fill, and shipping from the manufacturer itself.
10% will go to creating and printing the custom backing cards for each Sweetie.
Shipping will be charged on an individual basis depending on where you live and is considered an additional fee separate from the pledge amount. I will be using USPS to ship out backer rewards. US Residents will pay $3.00 - $3.50 for shipping. Canadian Residents will pay $9.00 - $9.50 USD for shipping. Residents located anywhere else in the world will pay $13.00 - $13.50 USD for shipping.
I am unsure if there will be any Stretch Goals as I'd like to keep this a sweet and simple project with a focus on transparency and delivering a top-notch product that will delight backers. I will, however, continue to evaluate if Stretch Goals are possible throughout the course of the project!
Risks and challenges
- The enamel in these pins is added by hand during the manufacturing process, and defective pins are always imminent. However, I want to ensure my backers get the highest quality pins. Therefore, delays might occur if I need to contact the manufacturer to re-do and ship corrected pins to me so that I can pass them onto backers. If this happens, I will keep my backers updated with new shipping times and deadlines.
- My goal is to begin shipping all pin packages throughout the month of July 2018. If there are any unforeseen circumstances that prevent this from happening on time, then I will ensure my backers know asap.
- Transparency is my highest priority throughout this entire project. If something goes awry, or if shipping is delayed, or if manufacturer molds need to be redone, then my backers will be the first to know.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
