Sneks. | Noodle-doodles that love to show love. | They'll slither their way into your heart.
Well, they will actually accessorize your vest, jacket, collar, hat, bag, or pin board, and show the world how cuddly-cute-dangerous-adorable-fiercely-lovable you are.
What Am I Supporting
This is an enamel pin project! Each individual pin is die struck, leaving recessed areas to receive custom-colored enamel. The pin is kiln-fired at 450 degrees and polished to a shiny luster, resulting in a hard surface. An epoxy on top keeps the vibrant, sharp colors from fading.
- Size: 1.25"/31.75 mm tall
- Thickness: 1.6mm
- Fill: soft enamel
- Finishing: shiny gold or black metal + front-side polished
- Attachment: 8mm single post + rubber clutch
- Each pin depicts a cartoon snake in the shape of a heart. The body of the snake has spots on the top and stripes on the belly that hold the various color schemes. The borders of each pin (edges and between the areas of colored enamel) are either black metal or bright gold, depending on the design.

Other Potential Designs
If you would like more than one snek pin, all you have to do is add $15 to your pledge. You can choose multiples of the same design, or choose from among unlocked designs at the end of the campaign. We'll send you a survey to make your choice.
Choose the single pin tier for 4 or fewer pins. Then add multiples of $15 to your pledge total:
If you wish to support five (5) pins, there is a special discount tier for that: $65. Choose that reward level. For more than 5 pins, choose the 5 Pin Reward and add on multiples of $15 until you reach the total number of pins you would like!
Simply change your pledge amount before the campaign ends. You'll have the opportunity to add on pins in the BackerKit at the end of the campaign, too.
I am so excited to bring these noodle-doodles to life and see them out in the world spreading love. I appreciate your support!
Risks and challenges
I have completed and fulfilled 7 successful Kickstarters, including two for enamel pins.
We have worked with this manufacturer before for production of other pins we have created, including for our other Kickstarters. We have a great working relationship, and we feel confident in our ability to deliver a quality product on time.
The artwork is already created, and the prototypes have been made. Once the campaign closes, we will send out surveys immediately and seek to place the manufacturing order shortly after receiving the funds (15 days from the project's end date). From there, it is 4-6 weeks for production, and 2 weeks for fulfillment. The biggest risk is a project delay, but if that happens, I'll be sure to let you know right away!
Of course, another risk is the campaign not succeeding! I hope you will share this campaign with your friends to help us meet the goal! Every share is precious, and when you show your excitement, other people get excited, too!
Note: we are not responsible for items lost in the mail or delivered to the wrong address. Your package will be sent via USPS to the address you provide at the close of the campaign. You are responsible for updating that address should it change, and for completing the mail forwarding instructions through the USPS. If your package is lost, please follow up with the post office first. If we have used an incorrect address due to your mistake, we will happily resend the pins, but you will be responsible for paying the additional shipping charges. Of course, if it is our mistake, we will be happy to fix it right away, without additional cost to you. PLEASE be vigilant about entering accurate information into the BackerKit survey at the close of the campaign so that your reward gets to you!
