About

Backstory:

My name is Louise, the owner and illustrator at missloutoyou. I run a small clothing business which features cute and colourful prints of my own characters and motifs which represent them. My works are inspired by various subjects and aesthetics, and I am especially inspired by cute characters and icons!

For a few years I have been developing my series of characters from my story Cherry Tree Tea, which is set in the cafe this pin collection is from! You can find most of the information on this series on my deviantart. Each pin has a small story behind it based on the characters in this series.

Current unlocked pins:

Cherry Tree Tea Cafe-A relatively simple backstory-this is where the gang work and the stories take place, so of course it is one of the two initial pins!

Speckubear Melty Macaron-This is a gift the waitresses give one of their regulars after discovering it was her birthday. This regular is known for her love of the local cartoon character Speckubear!

With each new pin unlocked a new small story is uncovered!

Packaging:

The backing cards will be made exclusively for these pins. They will be made in a business card style and then I will combine the card and pin myself. I will design these and post these during the kickstarter :)

*Do note these will not be packaged in plastic seal bags. These will be wrapped in tissue paper and sent in small jiffy bags (large letter sizes).

More about the pins:

+40 mm 

+Hard Enamel 
+Gold plated
+Coloured Rubber Clutch (the colour depends on the pin)

Costing breakdown:

My Last kickstarter I did unfortunately did not cover all of my funds due to underestimating shipping costs and fees, so I have done a breakdown of the costing for the pins:

£340 for 2 pin designs
£40 Postage and Packaging
£40 Fees with leeway 

Plans for the Cherry Tree Tea Cafe?

As well as work on short comics of the gang, I hope for this to be the start of the Cherry Tree Tea pin club! I have already started planning for it's launch in 2019 :) here is a sneak peek. The mascot here is one of the main waitress' - Ethol!

Risks and challenges

I am still new to the enamel pin world as a creator, having only done two designs! This experience has helped me into which manufacturers to use, as well as get feedback on the best colour palettes and designs for these.

The designs may be tweaked if they do not get instant approval, but they will not be anything too distinctive that would immensely change the look of the design. It may be the thickness of the lines or the amount of colours in one section.

It also may take longer than desired to get these pins out, but I imagine December will be the latest you will receive them. I will keep you guys updated through this process though!
