Hello & welcome! While this is my first kickstarter, this isn't the first time I've created pins or any kind of merch & it certainly won't be the last. Decided to start this project because there are a lot of designs with lots of detail & I know I wouldn't be able to make them by myself. I'll keep updates whenever possible on instagram, but I'll also be sure to post them here too c:
★ IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE!! ★
Pledging will give you the lowest prices possible for these pins! If the campaign is successful, any leftover pins will be up in my store for a higher price.
- You will not be charged until the campaign ends ( if successful ).
- Don't wait for a goal to be unlocked to make a pledge! Making your pledge helps make sure the goal DOES get unlocked!!
- You can change your pledge or back out at any time
- Backer surveys will be sent out after the campaign asking which pins you would like
Pins will be gold or nickel plated, double posts on the back with rubber or butterfly clutches, and backstamped. Each pin varies between 1.2" - 2" ( 30mm - 50mm ). Most pins have detailed silk screen details and multiple cut outs, which add to the cost of production.

** Note that this is a tentative timeline and, unfortunately, some things do come up during production ( such as wrong enamel color, uneven filling, etc ) or receiving the funds from kickstarter might take awhile. If something does happen, though, I will make sure to keep you guys posted, both on here and on instagram **
Risks and challenges
★ Production typically takes about a month, but there is always a chance of unexpected delay.
★ You're not charged for the pins until the end of a successful Kickstarter. You can back now and be charged later when it ends, or change your pledge at any time.
★ Each pin is quality checked & graded by me, so all backers will be getting standard/grade A pins. If the defect rate is really high, I may need to ask for remakes.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
