** IMPORTANT UPDATE!**

Unfortunately we have received word back from our factory and the timeline we had been locked into is no longer valid and our pins will likely NOT be here in time to be shipped before Valentine's Day. We will still be making the design, but please note that the projected arrival is now marked for the end of February. The manufacturer we use will be unavailable longer than expected due to the Chinese New Year Holiday over there. 

PRODUCT DETAILS:

EACH PIN FEATURES:

  • 1.5 x 1.24 Inches 
  • Hard Enamel Gold or Silver Metal 
  • 1 Color
  • 2 Rubber Clutches 
  • Back Logo Stamp 
  • Limited Edition

Another in our line of pins inspired by Circus Sideshows and Cabinets of Curiosities, FOREVER features a pair of conjoined skulls in a subtle heart shape. I love working with the metal itself as a design feature whenever I can and this pin will feature the bulk of the design in the polished metal finish with just the details in glossy black enamel for a simple, gorgeous looking piece. 

Join us in making our FIRST design of 2018! By pre-releasing our pins here, we can gauge our fans' reactions to designs and it allows us to have more freedom to try some genuinely fun and unusual pins!

We have decided that for the year, we will be pre-releasing many of our pins via Kickstarter and each design will be limited editions. (The exact number will be determined by the level of purchases for the design with a minimum of 50 of each colorway.) The design has been approved and is in production. 

STRETCH GOALS!

We are keeping the stretch goals simple this time to make sure the pins can be completed in a timely fashion. However - we have allowed enough time for a custom backing card design and a third colorway of the metal - Copper!

STRETCH GOALS:

  • $600 - Custom Backing Cards
  • $1,000 - Third COPPER METAL Color Option
  • $2,000 - 2 Mystery Variants!

NOTE: The Mystery Variants of the pins at the $2,000 goal will be ordered separately and arrive later than the other color options.

2018 Pin Maniac Mystery Club!

Welcome to our first mystery club for Enamel Pins!

If you are a fan of our designs and releases and can't bear the thought of missing out on our pins, this is the perfect club for you! About once a month, we will send you a package including EVERY single pin we made and released that month along with some extra fun goodies and surprises! That means every variant, color option and even any convention or patreon exclusive pins we make. We have already plotted out most of the year in pins and have artwork on a few ready to go. For the last year we've released pins with a combination of Kickstarter projects and website releases and 2018 will be the same, but MORE PINS!

If you join the Pin Maniac Mystery Club, we can guarantee that you will receive at least 30 releases, though it will be anywhere between 30-50 pin designs depending on Kickstarter results and whether I get a great idea for a pin that I don't have planned yet. This includes any deluxe moving pins, glow in the dark versions, collaborations, Mystery Crate Exclusives or remakes of sold-out designs as well!

The PIN MANIAC MYSTERY CLUB includes:

  • ALL Unlocked variants of the FOREVER Design
  • 10-12 Monthly packages of goodies (US Only - Non US is Quarterly)
  • At least 30-50 new enamel pins 
  • Membership Card 
  • An introductory grab bag of 2017 releases and surprises 
  • Stickers/Candy/Fun in each shipment 
  • Pin Maniac Vinyl Decal 
  • Exclusive Discount Code 
  • Shipping is included in the price
  • Show your card at any of our convention appearances to get a free Mystery Gift at the show!

Unfortunately, due to the MASSIVE changes the USPS has made in regards to restrictions on shipping small items like Pins overseas, we have had to modify the club for non-US Members - We will still ship you your pins, but they will arrive in a semi-quarterly pin drop instead! You will also receive a different coupon code that will hopefully compensate you for the increase in shipping when buying other pins and goodies from our shop!

IMPORTANT NOTE ON SHIPPING FOR NON-US BACKERS:

For 2018, the USPS has made radical changes to shipping rules resulting in the elimination of the current cheapest method of mailing pins - the standard bubble envelope with tracking. They have made a new rule that that particular class of non-US shipping is for two-dimensional, non-merchandise items. This means our next best option is a SIGNIFICANT jump in price and our only viable option for shipping to our overseas backers at this time. As compensation, we have discounted all of our current designs of pins and have them listed in our BACKERS-ONLY Shop over on Deeplydapper.com and all of them are listed without shipping for you to add to your Kickstarter Rewards at the time of shipping if you'd like. (Those prices and free shipping is also good for US customers too!) As soon as the shop is live, I'll post a link here and in the updates for this project!

WHO WE ARE:

Deeply Dapper is Kris McClanahan! Joined by his long-suffering wife Lindsay, they strive to bring a bit of cheeky horror and retro fun to the world. You can listen to their podcasts, view their convention calendar, previous work and more on their website. Deeply Dapper is located in the wild northwestern US.

Risks and challenges

Although there is usually some small variance in manufacturing time, we foresee little risks with the project. We have sourced a new factory and the pin designs for the reward will be on their way in the production cycle by the conclusion of the project. We have made over 2 dozen designs and we have been making and shipping items for eight years. This is our 8th Kickstarter.
