About this project

The Marvelous Mesozoic: Enamel Pins

$6,671

159

Explore the Mesozoic

This project is a continuation of Prehistoric Pins which explored the early life of the Cambrian and Devonian eras. The Mesozoic Era pins will feature interesting creatures from land, air and sea! They will be made of Soft Enamel and be more detailed than the previous designs. I was very happy with the last set and have a working relationship with an amazing pin manufacturer to make these designs come to life!

Each pin is 1.5 inches at the widest point and feature a vibrant, high contrast, soft enamel finish and dual backing pins for a secure attachment. The pins come in their own custom backing designed specifically for each pin. 

The Pins

All Stretch Goals Unlocked! 

 

 

Stretch goal pins may be added on at the end of the campaign via Backerkit. 

 

 Tote can be added to any pledge for $25 or ad the end of the campaign via Backerkit Survey. 

Pin on backing mockup

Each pin will have a custom backing with the name of the species and the era it is from. 

Breakdown of Pin Creation

This is how a pin goes from concept sketch to final product from the manufacturerer. This process takes about a month from start to finish! 

Stickers

Each pin will ship with a 4x6 sheet of die cut stickers with each of the pin art at no additional charge. 

Info Sheet

Each order will will with an info sheet with various facts about the creatures featured on the pins. 

(design example is from the previous pin set. Design and creatures will differ from the final sheet)

Example

Example of a pin on its backing from my previous project so you know what to expect.

Cost breakdown 
Pin+Shipping cost: $1300 (make 100 of each pin)

Production schedule:

May: project end and surveys sent
June: Manufacturing complete and shipping begins
July: Completion

Risks and challenges

The main risk with any project is encountering delays. With my last project, pin production went very smoothly and I expect the same for this project. I am experienced in setting up files and designing pins so I do not expect any issues. It take 3-4 weeks to manufacture enamel pins and that is the longest waiting period.
