I'm Sam or known as Raicodoll on the internet! I'm an illustrator of witchy things, I draw dumb comics about my life, blog about my goals and challenges and life on my website, and occasionally (I mean all the time) run a bunch of cool art events around my local town!
You can take a peek at my work here:
I'm trying to launch my very first enamel pin with your help! I'm a small time artist and want to make things for people to enjoy, but I need help to do it! Hopefully that's where you come in!
Our goal is to at least get the Purple/Black pin funded first, but there are three variants we can possibly do. The pins are based on two paintings I did of cat skulls, one in purple and one in pink. Based on a poll, purple got chosen to be the first one to be made into a pin!
(EDIT: Purple got FUNDED! YAY!)
All pins will be:
- Hard enamel
- 35mm tall
- Black rubber clutches
- Purple & Pink will be Black Nickle plated
- If the Black/Gold gets funded, that will be Gold plated
Once the purple design gets funded, we can work on getting the other two variants funded and made as well! The designs look best in sets, but I want to make sure we get at least one made!
And if both colors get funded, we have a super neat black/gold to aim for!
My main priority is to get the purple done, but I know a lot of people wanted the other colors and I do too! As we reach goals to get more designs funded, you will get the option to choose between colors! So keep that in mind in case you don't like the purple! As long as we reach the goals, you can have whatever colors you want!
All orders through Kickstarter will include Free Domestic shipping and will be slightly cheaper than when they get released to my store after the project is over!
Other rewards include:
- 8x10 Prints of the original painting designs
-Transparent 2.5 inch Stickers
-Limited Edition Rose-Gold foiled Black/Gold 8x10 Print
-All orders will include an exclusive thank you postcard
All pins will come attached on Gloss Cardstock backer cards, approximately 2x3 inches.
I will be putting them in plastic to make sure the pins do not get scratched before they make it to you!
The money raised will be used for:
◈ Production cost of the pins
◈ Backing Cards/Packaging/Rewards
◈ Kickstarter fees
The pins will take 6 weeks to manufacture once the Kickstarter ends plus a couple of weeks while payments and fees are collected. If Stretch Goals are met, a survey will go out asking which variant of pin you want!
Shipping estimates are 5-7 days for Domestic shipping. International shipping can take 7-21 days, rough estimate! I'll try and communicate as much as I can, but there's not much I can do about customs!
• April - May: Kickstarter
•May - June: Manufacturing (6 week estimate)
•July: Packing and shipping
Hopefully we can get them out quicker, but at the latest we're estimating early July!
Thank you ahead for taking the time to check out my Kickstarter! It would mean a bunch to me if you would consider supporting it and helping me get the pins funded! And I hope to be able to make more designs in the future!
Risks and challenges
The biggest risk is manufacturing errors. I've researched the site and so far I haven't seen too many people have issues with them, but it's something to consider. Any large errors may push back the shipping date!
Final design may vary due to the manufacturer!
I've run my own online shop for a while and can definitely get things shipped out quickly! I'll be sure to keep everyone up to date on all progress with the pins!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
