I want to give the world a better backer for their pins. A locking backer that is more versatile with the addition of a strong magnet.

What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Pin Jams is going to be the most fun way to display your pin collection on anything magnetic while also having the option to use them as a locking backer for you jacket, hat or bag.

Pins used to only be able to be displayed on clothing, bags, cork bulletin boards and anything else you wanted to punch permanent holes in. Pin Jams fixes that problem by providing you with a heavy duty locking backer with a set screw and a very strong rare earth magnet that will hold over 10 oz. of weight!

By backing this project you help PinJams become a reality! I am working on packaging, branding and sticker designs too. Each pack of PinJams will come with 5 Pinjams, 2 allen wrenches, an instruction sheet and a sticker.

So check out all of the options and choose the pledge that works for you and save a few bucks while helping PinJams become a reality!

If you would like any extra PinJam 5 packs added to your pledge please increase your pledge by $10 per pack and send me a message saying you did so. Keep your original pledge option the same and I will send out surveys once the campaign is over. Thanks!

I am happy to announce some really great stretch goal incentives. I am totally blown away by the response and support and wanted to reward all of you for helping make this a reality!

Risks and challenges

I have already gone through a few different versions before I came to this prototype. I had wanted to go with cork but after 3-4 uses it became useless so I went back to the drawing board and came up with an even better solution to the problem. I am very confident that this is going to be the best upgrade you can buy for your enamel pin collection!
