The Sloping Companion is a creative collective that offers a number of services. We build websites, produce audio and video productions, light designs, graphic art, merchandising, write music and offer many other media elements within our family. 

We have been very successful in the past with also helping non profit organizations by donating a portion of our proceeds of our sales to these groups. We have made a name for ourselves in the pin making and trading community and are proud to announce our first series of pins and stickers in an ongoing project dedicated to the gaming community. We call it The Gamers Series 1.0 !

Compass

The Gamers Series 1.0 starts as a beautiful antique silver pin. There are seven pins in the series and each pin has a special phrase etched into the back to correlate with the design on the front. These pins will be limited edition and numbered. If this kickstarter is successful then we will hopefully produce another series of a completely different design in the future. Please help us fund this project! We offer some great incentives to those that help us and also have a few surprises in store! The great thing about these pins is that they will be double posted on the back.

This adds much more value than a single posted pin because the double posts actually hold the pin in place as opposed to it possibly spinning around or falling off once attached. Double posting is the standard in the pin game and we always offer this with our pieces. The Sloping Companion has had great success in producing antique silver style pins.

The series depicts seven iconic images from the gaming community along with two words that often get used wrong. We have three well known die in the series.  There is a compass, sword, shield, geek and nerd pin. Each pin also has an etched phrase in the back depicting a correlation to the icon on the front.  Production is all ready to go. All we need now is the funding. The decals will also reflect these same images and will be four inch in diameter and will be weather resistant. These are all ready for production. Now all we need is the help of the great gaming community!

Our goal is $1,500.00 to produce all of the pins and stickers. We are also offering some great stretch goals in an attempt to make this design truly pop as an accessory.

Stretch Goal - $4,000.00 - We will convert the design into a bronze set of pins.  

Stretch Goal - $6,000 - We will convert the pin series into a gold set of pins.  

Stretch Goal - 8,000 - We will convert the pin series into a gold set of pins and will encrust it with red ruby rhinestones.  

Our campaign lasts for 14 days so the quicker we get the word out the better. Please consider our incentives and we hope that you will support our project. The Gamers Series 1.0 - Game on!

Risks and challenges

One concern might be a delay in production. However, we have been using the same manufacturing company for almost a year with success. The normal lead time on these pieces is always usually 7-14 business days once the order is placed.

These orders will be filled by Robert himself with the help of one other person. We will do our best to expedite these orders in a timely fashion to ensure the support and security of the crowd funding and gaming community.
