Creature Feature is an enamel pin project that aims to bring you some sets featuring your favorite monsters! Each monster is chained to its vice - be it the object of its defeat, or the irresistible urges it must obey.
The base goal is to produce the Werewolf pin pair, which features two 25mm (~1 inch) gold hard enamel pins, along with a handmade 3-inch detachable chain to bind the two together.
The detachable chain offers you versatility of design - you can wear the pins both separate and together. They will be made to fit on the back of your pin, between the plate and clutch. In addition to these pins, you can also get stickers of the designs, so you can attach them to whatever objects your heart desires!
Making enamel pins has been a long time dream of mine, so there are some stretch goals I have laid out in the event we surpass the funding for the original pair! Each stretch goal that is met unlocks a ~2.5 inch sticker of the same design, which will be automatically included in all tiers with stickers!
There are more fun and smaller stretch goals to be unlocked along the way, such as more sticker designs, pin specific backing cards, and the chance to bring more pin designs to life should these goals be surpassed! Appropriate tiers will be added as these stretch goals are met. Being able to produce more enamel pins is a long term goal of mine, so a successful project will help me deliver more of those to you!
- July - August: Kickstarting! Spread the word to help out!
- August: Product counts and surveys for the appropriate tiers!
- August - September: Production! (est. 4-5 weeks)
- September - October: Shipping! My goal is to have your monster themed pins to you just in time for Halloween!
This cost breakdown is done for the $1500 goal. It is based on 100 units (pin set, chain, stickers, packing supplies), and includes safety cushions in case more product is needed, unforeseen fees, or any unexpected issues that might arise.
Risks and challenges
By far, the biggest challenge will be getting the word out about this project - fortunately, this is something you get to have some control over. If you'd really like to see these pins in your mailbox, please share this Kickstarter with others who might be interested! I can't tell you how much I would appreciate it.
I'm thorough when it comes to planning and research, so it's safe to say my contingency plans have contingency plans for problems that might arise during the course of this Kickstarter. Expected risks include possible production issues, shipping delays, unforeseen costs/fees, and assembly time - which is why there are safety cushions of time and money built into the goals.
Designs are subject to minor change and improvement, but backers will be updated every step of the way!
I will be using (https://www.zapcreatives.co.uk/) to produce my pins and stickers, backing cards will be made of recycled kraft paper and produced by (https://www.jukeboxprint.com/), and I will be sourcing my chain supplies through (http://www.rings-things.com/).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
