About

Hello and welcome to my new Kickstarter project! My name's Max and I create things. I made this project to bring to life a new line of enamel pins inspired by some of the amazing creatures of the sea.

Following the success of my modest first Kickstarter project, I've decided to create a larger and more ambitious project that I'm very excited about. If you'd like to see the results from that first project you can check out my website.

This project consists of three pin designs based on the squid, octopus and whale. Meeting the initial project goal will unlock the the Classic Set of color schemes.

Each pin features:

1.25" size hard enamel coating rubber clutch double-sided backing card

The Classic Octopus features a polished gold plating, the Class Squid an antique silver plating for a darker, matte look, and the Classic Whale a polished silver plating.

When the project reaches its first stretch goal we will unlock the very classy, retro-inspired Vintage Set.

Each of these designs feature a polished gold finish and will make you look really, really cool. Your friends will wonder exactly how you got just so cool.

And at $3000 we will unlock the venerable Vaporwave Set.

That's right. A set of sea creature pins sporting a breezy vaporwave-inspired palette.

So.

Hip.

The Vaporwave Squid and Octopus feature polished silver plating, and the Vaporwave Whale features an antique silver plating for a cool, matte look.

If all that wasn't enough, there's also a separate bonus set of Shark pins that can be unlocked!

These are 1-inch pins, and the Classic and Nightmare versions have a polished silver plating, while the Vaporwave version has a matte antique silver finish. They might be a bit smaller but that's only to match the scale of the other designs, since this one doesn't have any protruding parts. (It looks a bit awkward at a larger size.)

You'll notice that instead of a Vintage Shark there's a Nightmare Shark instead. I just couldn't help myself; it was too cool not to go for. I hope you'll agree!

Risks and challenges

This is my second enamel pin Kickstarter project, and I can say that I've definitely learned a lot from the first. I'm working with the same great local Canadian company again, so there shouldn't be too many unwelcome surprises. If anything, there might be some slight delays in production and shipping, but I'll do my best to minimize any of that.
