THE ARTIST

I'm MJ Erickson, a freelance illustrator living in the wilds of Colorado. My first ever pin design was a werewolf conservation pin about a year ago, and I've designed a few more this past year ("Roll for Mental Health" and "Frick"). This is take two on the werewolf concept, but this time I'm including a few friends!

THE KICKSTARTER

The point of this Kickstarter is to make some pins! The more people back, the more pins I'll be able to produce. The initial goal will fund production and shipping on the Vampire and Werewolf pins. The Unicorn and Mermaid pins will be unlocked if we hit the stretch goals. While the dream is to produce the full set, I decided that setting the initial goal for 2 pins would improve the odds of getting at least a few of them made.

As a note, you can request multiple copies of any pin; the higher tiers don't require that you get one of each.

STRETCH GOALS

 

INITIAL GOAL BREAKDOWN

  • $560 - cost of production on 2 pin designs.
  • $250 - cost of shipping 56 pins (amount that would cover production costs) + wiggle room for international.
  • $80 - estimated KS fees.
  • $150 - misc supplies (backing cards, shipping).
  • TOTAL: $1,040

Risks and challenges

While I'm new to Kickstarter, I've produced several other original pin designs with a company I trust and have experience with online fulfillment. The only real risk is that production itself will take longer than expected, in which case you'll be the second to know (after me!).

It's possible that the above designs will be tweaked slightly once production is underway to ensure the best quality, but any alterations will be minor. I'll be updating all backers on every stage of the production and shipping process once the Kickstarter is complete.
