We’re Fred and Lena. With our sister powers combined, we become NerdyCute, designers and makers of original cute, nerdy goodies inspired by science, fandom, and kawaii <3

We make stickers, stationery, cards, planner stickers, jewelry, and charms, and sell them at comic cons and on our website (www.nerdycute.com). We make most of our stuff ourselves, at home--but we can't make enamel pins without help.

That's where you come in!

We would love to make enamel pins of our designs, starting with our popular sloth. Because of the minimum order to have pins made we need your help to make it a reality!

We're working with an American-based company that makes high quality hard enamel pins. The sloth pin will look like this:

 The deets: These will be high quality cloisonné hard enamel pins on a silver-coated base metal (copper or brass) with a butterfly fastener. They'll have a smooth glossy finish and be 20% thicker than other styles of die-struck pins. 

If you want multiples of any of the rewards, you'll need to do a little math and pledge that amount. For example, if you want 2 sloth enamel pins, choose the $10 reward level, but change your pledge amount to $20 ($10 x 2 pins). And drop us a note to make sure we know what you want :)

Other than the pins, here's what our rewards look like!

Sloth laptop sticker or magnet (3 by 2.5 inches) - Laptop stickers are sun- and water-resistant. You can stick them outside or to your water bottle!

It will take about one month to have the pins made, and another week for us to prepare and ship the rewards after we receive the pins. We expect everyone to receive their rewards by the beginning of December 2017.

Risks and challenges

We're working with an American-based company and have already viewed 2 proofs our the sloth design. If we get funded, it should be smooth sailing to pin-hood for our sloth design! Barring any delays in production or shipping from the company, we should be good to go :)
