Hi, this is Holly from Kimchi Kawaii. You may know me for my Purrista Pawfee, coffee cat series or Punny Buns, bread bunnies. I've always liked doing things beyond the usual and this brings me to the latest Kickstarter project.

Recently, I was looking at my mom's recipe book from the 60's. Back then, the hot thing to bring to potlucks and have out for entertaining was the gelatin mold. Some of the recipes sounded really yummy, but some were just downright bizarre (fish in my jello?? NO THANKS). But I've always liked retro designs and thought it would be fun to make pins inspired by gelatin molds.

The Details Are Starting to Gel!

Each pin will be hard enamel with gold tone metal and opaque and translucent enamels. Pins will measure 1.5" at longest point and come with a double pin back with rubber clutches. Pins will be completed with a retro design styled backing card.

Domestic backers to the project will get their pins with free shipping (USA)! International backers will be able to get pins for a discounted shipping rate of $7 which is about 50% off.

Early birds will get their pins at free shipping AND a slightly discounted rate! (International early bird backers will pay the discounted shipping rate).

We'll start off with three pins and unlock more as funding goals are met!

Stretch Goals!


Meet the Halloween Ham Hams!

We're closing in on the last gelatin stretch goal and still have some time left. Since I don't have any more gelatin designs, I took a vote in the backers only update on adding other designs to be made as pins, even if it doesn't relate. The vote said yes, and Halloween Ham Hams won!

These cute little hamsters are all dressed up and ready to trick or treat. They will be 1.5" hard enamel pins with black nickel metal. The backs will be rubber clutches like the gelatin ones. Pins should be in hand for Halloween fun!

The FIN-ale!



Add-on Shop!

Want additional gelatin, hamsters or cats? Just really like pins and want to collect even more? New to Kimchi Kawaii and want other stuff? Meet the Add-on shop! Simply adjust your pledge level to add on the cost of any additional items you want from below and then tell me what you want when backer surveys go out at the end of the project!

This is just a curated collection of items that sort of relate to the theme of this Kickstarter (honestly, never done a theme like this before, lol).

Kitty Amewsment Park: This is a series I've been growing inspired by 50s and 60s era Disney attractions posters.  The pins are soft enamel to give you that retro vibe.

Other foods: Just some desserts and food that I love and are sometimes equally odd-ball.

Risks and challenges

I've had my business for over 10 years now and run several successful Kickstarters and have processes in place to get the backer packs out smoothly and quickly. Additionally, I have a good relationship with my pin manufacturer and have run hundreds of pins through them at this point.

As with all overseas manufacturing, there may be some unavoidable delays either in production or the shipping of the items to me from the factory. If there are any delays, I will update everyone through the updates section here on Kickstarter and on my social media channels.
