This will be the first time Serenity has been featured on a product. Serenity is a die based on an African Wild Dog and a primary character in the online comic Alien Dice. She's fiercely loyal, protective and despite her serene and laid back manner, capable of serious damage when provoked to action.
Now on to the details and be sure to read down to the bottom, because while there is a BASE amount just for the charms, there's also a jumbo print and vinyl stickers involved this time around, for the first time... and a Sirius Charm.
Each charm design will come with a matching 4"x6" card print AND a little fridge magnet featuring the same image!
Now, on to the details: Charms are custom printed on 1/16" acrylic and then laser cut with a height around 1.5". For extra gloss and protection, all of the charms have a layer of lamination over the printed surface. Turnaround is 10-20 business days + shipping time.
Each charm will come with your choice of no attachment, a key chain or cellphone strap or just a ring so you can wear it on a necklace. Shipping worldwide IS included! Insurance will be extra and I can't get insurance outside the US via USPS.
Breakdown of costs:
$75 for charms
$20 for postcards
$20 for magnets
$5 for envelopes
$5 for bags
$10 for keychains
$3 for rings
$36 for shipping
$40 for taxes

Flex Goal # 1 - Jumbo Print - $290
When we get near goal, I will show off the print. It will 11 x 17 jumbo print on 100lb cover stock. It'll be shipped separate of the other items, rolled in a cardboard tube. (I have a bunch of them.) It will run $12, including shipping anywhere.
It will also be added to the top tier as a 4" x 6" card print.
Edit: +$35 for Mailing Tubes - just a note for myself. I can't edit the rewards and it'd mess up how things are.
The copyright text is not on the actual print.
Flex Goal #2 - Sirius Charm - $365
The Sirius version of the heart shaped Serenity charm will be made available.
Flex Goal #3 - 3 x 6 Vinyl Sticker Sheet - +$70 - $435
This will be the first time I've done this, but here is a 3" x 6" vinyl sticker sheet with 3 kiss cuts, that is two separate images and one logo. $70 gets me 50 sheets, which will then be offered for $3 each on their own and as part of other items. Check back, this cost may lower as I look around for other information. Watermark will not be on final print.
Risks and challenges
The only risks are shipping delays or manufacturing delays. I place my orders as soon as the Kickstarter funds arrive. The vinyl sticker products are something I have not done before, nor have I worked with the company that would like me to order from them. There might be a small risk there, but they are an established company in the UK.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
