My name is Jessica and for the past year I've been turning my fantasy RPG inspired art into enamel pins. I'm back again to put my spin on a classic - class pins. If you're familiar with my art, you may recognize some of these designs. I decided to rework one of my favorite pin series, making these already detailed pins into the smaller, more wearable pins you see below! I've added 5 completely new designs to the series, including something for mystics, artificers, dungeon masters, and an alternate (more universal) version for sorcerers.
I initially was unsure how these detailed designs would work in the smaller format of 40mm, so I have already manufactured the rogue design to test things out. You can see the result below along with the 17 pin designs available for unlocking!
All 17 designs now unlocked!
UNLOCKED: 1) Rogue, 2) Wizard, 3) Ranger, 4) Druid, 5) Bard, 6) Cleric, 7) Monk, 8) Warlock, 9) Barbarian, 10) Paladin, 11) Sorcerer (Draconic Origins), 12) Fighter, 13) DM (World Builder), 14) Mystic, 15) Sorcerer (Innate Power), 16) Artificer, 17) DM (Hands of Fate)
I have the funds to manufacture 4 of these pins right now, but naturally I want to have the whole set made all at once! This means we will unlock 7 of the 17 designs with the main goal of $900!
After the initial funding, a new pin will unlock with each additional $300. If we reach a goal of $3900, all 17 designs will be unlocked!
The pricing on these pins is the lowest it will ever be (not including the sale of seconds/flawed pins). If funded successfully, the standard grade pins will be sold in my Etsy shop at $11 per pin.
CUSTOM BACKSTAMPS - UNLOCKED: In addition to my logo on the back of each pin, the name of the associated class will be stamped on the back with a custom design shown above.
COLOR VARIATION - UNLOCKED: At $6200 we unlock a color variation for these design in white nickel plating! Each design will be limited to one color at this time which is pictured above. For example, if you choose the white nickel version for druid, you will get a pin that is white nickel with a teal color.
FREE PIN - UNLOCKED: All backers will receive one of these free pins in the color of their choosing as a 'thank you' for supporting the production of these designs!
July 2 - 23: Kickstarter campaign.
August 13: Kickstarter funds received, pins can be ordered at this time.
August 13 - 20: Send artwork to manufacturer. Manufacturer will create a proof for the artwork for me to approve.
August 20 - September 10: Bulk production of the pins.
September 10 - 17: Pins are shipped to me!
September 17 - October 1: I perform a quality check on the pins, and package the pins for shipment to you.
October: Shipment to you begins. For domestic orders (in the US), shipping time is 2-8 days. For international orders, shipping times vary more widely and take 2-8 weeks.
This timeline is based on the normal timing I've experienced with my manufacturer. If there are any issues with production, this timeline may get pushed out! I will notify everyone through backer updates if there are delays in the schedule.
I will add commonly asked questions and their answers to the FAQ section as they arise. If your question isn't answered there or you just need further clarification, feel free to contact me! You can get in touch with me through the Kickstarter messaging platform or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thank you for checking out this project!
Risks and challenges
I have worked with my manufacturer before for the production of hard enamel pins. Minor alterations to the designs above may be necessary to ensure the best outcome for the pin. Updates will be made if alterations are necessary.
The biggest area for potential delays is the manufacturing and shipping process. Backers will be informed of manufacturing issues if it results in timeline delays. I have a good working relationship with the manufacturer I will be using for this project and will work to correct any issues that may arise in the production of these pins. I am confident that I will be able to deliver these designs as I have successfully funded and fulfilled 4 Kickstarters for hard enamel pin production.
As a last note, please be knowledgeable on your country’s import taxes and custom fees before backing the project. Backers will be responsible for these costs and inability to pay these costs will result in the package being returned to me. I can only reship the item if shipping costs are paid a second time. Any refunds requested in the event a package is returned to me will be for the cost of the product and not include the shipping costs that have already been spent.
