About this project

About this Project:

Ever since I was little, mandrills have always fascinated me. With their bright colors, grumpy faces, and long fangs, I thought they were so cool. For those of you who have never heard of these creatures, mandrills (commonly mistaken for baboons) are rain-forest dwelling monkeys that live in large groups. Right now, they are classified as Vulnerable (one step away from being endangered). Charles Darwin once said "no other member in the whole class of mammals is coloured in so extraordinary a manner as the adult male mandrills." Now, by funding this project you will be able to have a mini grumpy Mandrill to add to your pin collection!

Risks and challenges

This is my first time designing enamel pins and my first Kickstarter. However, I have consulted with a few experienced pin designers and manufacturers and I have done my research.

The Mandrill design has already been approved by my manufacturer. If any changes have to be made to the design, they will be minor. If anything, colors might be a little different due to monitor displays. Backers will be notified if any problems come up during the course of production.

It's estimated that after the conclusion of the Kickstarter, the pins will take 3-4 weeks to produce, but if anything changes, all backers will be notified.
