Three-toed sloths are the slowest and one of the cutest mammals on the planet earth! 

When life gets hectic, sloths remind us to stop, stretch, and smell the hibiscus flowers.

I've created this little pin design as a sweet reminder of this slow-going sloth philosophy. I need your help to make it real!

This Project: 

 This is my first pin run, so I'm starting small-- I'm trying to fund a run of 100 pins. I have a reliable supplier who has accepted the artwork. The next step is to produce it. $500 will cover pin manufacturing, shipping pins to backers, fees from kickstarter, and packaging materials to send these sloths safely on their way. 

Now that we've met the second stretch goal, I have the funds to print a super cute run of 4x6 sloth sticker sheets! Six different vinyl stickers come on every sheet.

Now that we've met the third stretch goal, the next colorway is available, and I'll be able to print 200 pins! Backers can choose which pin they'd prefer at the end of the campaign.

Designs and Details:

Classic Sloth Pin  

  • 30mm (1.1")
  • Hard enamel
  • Gun Metal Plating
  • Rubber Clutch
  • Backing Card

Albino Sloth Pin

  • 30mm (1.1")  
  • Hard enamel

Stretch Goal #4, unlocked at $1,800:

Natural Sloth Pin

  • 30mm (1.1")  
  •  Hard enamel  
  •  Gold Plating  
  •  Rubber Clutch  
  •  Backing Card

Sloths naturally grow algae in their fur, which helps them camouflage, keeping them safe- and their damp, soft fur provides a wonderful home for the tiny greens. An elegant symbiosis. This pin is the hippie of the sloth world! ;)  

If you love this little green dude and want to add one to your pledge, just add an additional pin to your pledge- you'll be able to select which pin colors you want at the end of the campaign!

Sticker Sheet Specs:   
  • Each sheet is 4" by 6"
  • Includes all 6 sloth colors  
  • Glossy, durable vinyl  
  • Indoor/outdoor and weatherproof

Risks and challenges

According to my manufacturer, pins should be delivered four weeks after payment. I will then package pins and send them out to backers. I have never done a run of pins before, but I am a responsible seller and have sold digital art commissions before. This project is a new challenge, and I am trying to build a reputation of punctuality and professionalism. My actions will reflect that.

There is a possibility of manufacturing delays, which cannot always be avoided. If there is a likely delay, I will let backers know as soon as possible and keep you in the loop as the process continues.
