Hello! My name is Addigni and I'm an artist and a fan of MCU, among other things. After watching Infinity War, I just couldn't help myself, I really wanted to make enamel pins of MCU characters, so here it is!
Here are the plans for the pins. It will be made of iron, gold coated, hard enamel, and with butterfly clutch back.
Update: Wow! I had no idea it would go this well! Thank you so much for all your support!! I've decided to add some stretch goals due to the overwhelming success:
*IMPORTANT NOTE: Reward tiers with the Bonus Dr Strange pin does NOT refer to this design, it refers to the original Dr Strange pin which is 3cm in height only [see picture below for reference] . It is smaller than the Dr Strange Infinity war edition which is 5cm tall. If the Dr Strange IW pin is unlocked, rewards with the old Dr Strange pin CANNOT be replaced with this Infinity War version.
If you would like the new one, you can add $16 for each Dr Strange (IW edition) pin into your existing pledge.
The most popular character will become the next stretch goal :)
♥ Once the Kickstarter ends, you'll be able to pick your pins from any of the designs - I'll send out different surveys for different tiers for everyone to fill out with their picks.
♥ Rewards with A5 art print will get a print of the following image
♥ For the pin rewards, you're free to pick multiples of the same design.
♥ You can edit your pledge at any time - you won't be charged until the Kickstarter ends.
♥ Shipping costs for the pins are as follows: - Singapore: S$1
- Rest of the world: S$10 (Tracking number provided)
These are applied when you pick your reward.
May - June:Design, preparation, Kickstarter launch.
Kickstarter ends, surveys for your pin choices and art print rewards (if applicable) are sent out, pins are ordered for production. Usual production time is 20-30 days,
August - September:
Pins are mailed out. Shipping time may vary due to your location, items will be shipped out from Singapore. On average, taking into consideration international shipping plus customs on exit and arrival plus the destination country's local postal service duration, the total shipping time may vary from 11 working days to 30 working days. You will have to be a little patient :)
I have made enamel pins before (based on Sherlock characters) so I'm quite familiar with the process. Here are some images of the chibi Sherlock character pins, to give you an idea of what to expect. Bear in mind that the Sherlock pins are smaller in size (3cm - 3.5cm tall) whereas the MCU pins are bigger (at 4.5cm to 5.5cm tall)
These pins are currently available for sale on My Store :)
Risks and challenges
Most things will not be an issue as I have it under control; the designs are all done and ready to go into production, I have made enamel pins with this manufacturer and it is smooth sailing so far.
The only problems I might encounter are:
- very MINOR changes to the design (for stability or production purposes, if the need arises)
- long shipping time but everything will have registered tracking so you can be assured that yours is on its way
If any other obstruction or challenges happens, I will let you all know on the Updates tab :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
