Time to roll initiative again, D20 Enamel Pins are back!
d20 Enamel Pins is a series of gold hard enamel pins inspired by classes from Dungeons and Dragons. Show off your D20 rolling skills and wear your love for tabletop games with pride, the rubber/metal clutch will fix your pin to your bag or clothes.
Rolling off the back of D20 Enamel Pins (Round I), this Kickstarter includes the classes which weren't covered in the first round. This project came to life from a combined love of pins, fashion accessories, and DnD.
Between Kickstarters, my DnD group and I have battled against liches, locked an eldritch god in a temple with 'don't cthulhu open inside' on the door, 'helped' a shepherd move his goats, and lost a dexterity saving throw against a book. We have been playing for many months, had several adventures, and I have designed new pins to cover the original missing classes.
The New Available Pins!
In addition, upon meeting the Base Goal, all of the original pins from the first Kickstarter will be available!
The Pin Specifications:
- The pins are 38mm/1.5" at their widest point.
- Hard Gold Enamel.
- Rubber and Metal Clutch Fixing - everyone will receive a rubber and metal clutch, allowing you to decide which clutch you'd prefer.
- Each come with a backing card and in a plastic wrap pouch.
- Each new pin will come with two closures/fixing on the back.This means pins from the previous series will only have one fixing point unless they are required to be reprinted.
Let's break down the details here!
At £1,800 the previous eight pins and the new four pins will be available to all backers.
At £2,200 the Dungeon Master pin will be available to all backers.

January-February: Run Kickstarter
February: Send out surveys, order products from manufacturers.
March-April: Pins and patches in production. Shipping parcels prepared for quick turn around. Pins are expected to take up to six weeks to produce according to the manufacturers.
April: Dispatch Pins! Some pins may not arrive until May or early June! Apologies.
Backers will have the opportunity to purchase any additional pins or items from my Etsy shop in the week prior to shipping (without paying additional shipping charges).
Backers will have the option to purchase additional patches at a reduced price during survey week.
Chimera's Curse will not be available once surveys are closed and final numbers have been tallied up.
If successful, a handful of spare pins will be sold in future through my Etsy and at my tables at future UK conventions. However, these will be sold at a higher price!
The Chimera's Curse will not be sold or made available once the Kickstarter has ended!
Risks and challenges
The majority of the pins are going to be produced through www.awesomemerch.com. Designs may be tweaked according to their requirements, whilst ensuring the best quality. Backers will be updated on any changes! Awesome Merchandise manufactured the pins from the previous Kickstarter and have been fantastic.
During the first Kickstarter, there was an error in printing based on the colours selected (despite clearly being different on screen and in the proofs, when physically printed, the colours were almost identical) which caused the shipping of Wild Roller pins to be delayed. To avoid repeating this, I will request comparative photography of the colours selected from the Pantone booklet.
Chimera's Curse will be produced through www.madebycooper.co.uk if the the stretch goal for glow-in-dark and sequential numbering is met. Designs may be tweaked according to their requirements, whilst ensuring the best quality. Backers will be updated on any changes!
The Dungeon Master's Patch will be made by www.madebycooper.co.uk if the the stretch goal is met. Designs may be tweaked according to their requirements, whilst ensuring the best quality. Backers will be updated on any changes!
This is my second Kickstarter project. You can see the previous Kickstarter here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/443030312/d20-enamel-pins…
In addition, I have experience of shipping and handling products through my etsy store. Shipping supplies will be ordered in alongside ordering pins.
