Inspired by one of my favorite characters and horror/comedy series, I'm proud to present this first collection of enamel pins! The initial pin design is from my Dapperkins Horror Abecedarium, which a parody collection of adorable and horrible Horror ABCs for "Children" that includes "B is for BOOMSTICK" 

HORROR ABCs?

Yeah! A couple of years ago I released a parody ABC book, which happens to be the best way to teach your little goblins and gremlins their alphabet. If you would like a copy of the book, there are a couple of Backer Levels you can choose that include it or you can simply Pledge an extra $12 to have the book added to your pledge.

As the project progresses, we'll unlock a custom backing card for the pin, then start unlocking additional designs from the series. (I have over 8 sketched out, so this may not be the last you see of that cabin in the woods or that leathery book...) Which brings us to.....

STRETCH GOALS!

In addition to the BOOMSTICK design, we hope to make and release 1-3 additional pins from the series, with each additional pin design being unlocked as we go!

Join us in our continued pin-making odyssey for 2017! 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! NEW LOWER SHIPPING FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS! After our last Kickstarters, we started investigating shipping costs and regulations and realized that the shipping program we were using had incorrect details for international shipping requirements, forcing us to charge more for shipping costs than we should have. We have remedied that now and have adjusted all of our shipping costs to reflect that!

We have decided that for the year, we will be pre-releasing our pins via Kickstarter and each design will be limited editions. (The exact number will be determined by the level of pledges with a minimum of 100 pins of each design) After some manufacturing difficulty with our Sideshow Collection, we have spent some time finding a new factory and are now working with the pin design further in the production queue! Our last pin, INFESTED, arrived in perfect condition before Kickstarter had even deposited the payment and we plan to continue with the system for these. By supporting this Kickstarter, you are allowing us to continue making new designs through the year! We have listed OCTOBER 2017 as the release date to avoid any concerns of manufacturer errors, but plan to ship in September.

WHO WE ARE:

Deeply Dapper is Kris McClanahan! Joined by his long-suffering wife Lindsay and his podcast co-host and collaborator Devon Marcel, 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 are well on their way in the production cycle.This is our 22nd enamel pin and we have been making and shipping items for six years. This is our Sixth Kickstarter.
