Hi everyone! Susannah and Yaniv here, from Alpha Quadrant.
We love enamel pins and are totally excited to launch our first independent enamel pin production as a Kickstarter project. For a long time we have been wanting to make our own high-quality collectibles that we can share with the world.
Being the dorks that we are, we chose to create this little fellow - the cutest ever rendition of our favorite Sci-Fi captain from his days as a cyborg. We call him Le Cutest, and he invites you to lower your shields, give him a hug, and add his distinctiveness to your own.
Our art is ready, and we have experience working with a reliable manufacturer on the production of pins for other artists . All that's left is to get the project backed and we'll be all set to go into warp!
Le Cutest pin features:
- ~1.5'' tall
- Hard enamel
- Black nickel plating
- Deluxe metal clutch
- 7 colors
- Thick 2.5''x2.5'' backing card
Our goal is to produce a limited (single) run of at least 100 premium pins, including an even more limited exclusive colorway batch. Anyone can get the original colorway pin. Super awesome backers can get the exclusive colorway, as a part of either the OG+Exclusive Duo or Deluxe Set.
Since we exceeded our goal, we have added some stretch goals to our campaign.When we reach these, more Le Cutest colorways will be unlocked! Once unlocked, you will be able to change any of the pins in your rewards to any of the new colors! More colors = more distinctiveness! Isn't that cool?
Oh yeah, we also have die cut vinyl stickers!
Risks and challenges
Not many risks really, but manufacturing is done in China and quality control is done here in TX. So delays can occur either overseas or if the product needs to be shipped back for corrections. We are anyway covered for mistakes done by the factory, so once sent out for production it is only a matter of weeks before Le Cutest is yours!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
