About

Mushroom Heart Enamel Pins

$291

Introduction

I'm a student artist looking to create my first pin using crowdfunding! I have decided to create this mushroom heart pin as my first pin. I have already emailed my supplier, Zap Creatives, and obtained a design proof. The proof that I show here is how it will look as a pin and no other changes will be made to it.

These pins will be 35 mm, or a little under an inch and a half. They will be hard enamel and the metal will be gun metal. They will have 2 pin backings. The pins will only be shipped in the US. 

I planned on having the underside of the mushroom glow in the dark but that option is currently unavailable with my manufacturer. I have decided to test it with them and we'll see if they glow well. There's a possibility then that they will not turn out to be glow in the dark pins. Despite this, the actual pin colors in the daylight will look the same regardless and not be affected. So the pin will be the same but the glow in the dark part may or may not happen.

 The Cost Breakdown

The goal to be reached is $270. $190 for the pins, $25 for the fees, and $55 for shipping. 

Stretch Goals

The sticker stretch goal is unlocked at $320 and at this point I will add stickers to each tier. They will be around 3 by 4 inches. I may design another sticker and have 50 stickers with each design, but currently the plan would be to order 100 of the design I have currently.

Backing cards will be designed and added at $350!

A new pin option will be unlocked at $550 and backers will be able to choose between both pin designs in their orders.

If you would like more than 5 pins, just add 8 dollars for every additional pin you want and if the sticker stretch goal is reached, an additional sticker will be added with each pin as well.

Schedule

The kickstarter will run from the middle of July to the middle of August.

I will then receive the funds at the beginning of September.

 It will take around another month to manufacture the pins and they will be done in October

Then I will ship them in that month so they should get there in October or November.

I have set the estimated arrival in November to give myself a buffer but most likely they will be shipped by October

Feel free to comment if you have any questions.

Risks and challenges

This is my first kickstarter so naturally it's possible that there may be a few bumps in the road but I will be fully transparent on any issues that may arise. The pin design is already approved and with a trusted manufacturer (Zap Creatives) whom I have used before so there shouldn't be any problems with the pins. I will also have help from someone who has experience shipping orders online so there shouldn't be any problems with shipping either.
My tier rewards may have silly names and descriptions but I will take this kickstarter very seriously and act responsibly!
