Wearing this pin on your coat, backpack, ita bag, clothing; will help remind people that you are in need of Noods and encourage them to send them too you! Whether you're at work, on the subway, or just taking a stroll down the block, you never know when that noodle urge will surface and before you know it, you'll be handed a cup noodle, just like that!
We are looking for 650.00$ CDN to fund our final round of Send noods pins. This will be the final round we produce them, and everyone's last chance to get them before they are gone! The money will mostly go into manufacturing but here's the breakdown so you can see for yourself! Packaging costs include the backing cards, bubble mailers and other packaging needed to ship these pins to you safely!
The Stretch Goal!
If we get to 1200.00$ CDN then I can afford to get these manufactured in both the regular AND a brand new never made Glitter version! (the glitter would be mostly in the white part of the design so it'd look quite sparkly!) If this stretch goal opens up, it means you get to CHOOSE either the regular or the glitter when the Kickstarter is over and successful! I'd absolutely love to do the Glitter version as well, because it's a version I haven't done before and I think would look super sharp! stretch goal glitter option! stretch goal glitter option!
STRETCH GOAL 1 HAS BEEN REACHED!
STRETCH GOAL 2, REVEALED!
That's right! If we get to the 2100$ CDN mark, a new third option will be available for all backers, Glow in the dark send noods!! This puts us at three potential versions:
Original noods, Glitter Noods, and Glowing noods!
STRETCH GOAL #2 UNLOCKED!
STRETCH GOAL #3 REVEALED
Thats right! If we reach 3500$ CDN, all tiers 2 pins and above will receive additional loots! Send noods and chocobro vinyl waterproof restickable stickers, but a mystery mini print that will come in a Safe for work and Not safe for work version ;) (backers can choose if they want the mini print to be revealing or not.) I wonder who this is???
STRETCH GOAL #4 ALSO REVEALED!
Three new versions of the pin will be unlocked at 4500$ CDN. These versions are based off of FF15, and anyone who has played the game and the quest with the same title probably has an idea what they'll look like! All three will be revealed, and then voted which version will be included making 4 versions to choose from for the pin! (normal, glitter, glow in the dark, and then the new mystery design changed one).
However! this stretch goal will be extra flavourful as 5500$ cdn and 6500$ will inlock the next version being an automatic choice, until finally at the 6500$ cdn backer goal, you will be able to choose between 6 different pins.
Let's aim for "the perfect cup" everyone :D
Tier 5 and lower are NOT TRACKED. The default shipping is shipping it small package not tracked Canada or the USA, and airmail not tracked anywhere else. If you require tracking on your order, you must add the below numbers depending on your location to your backer pledge:
Canada: add 8$ CDN to your tier 2-5 order
USA: add 5$ CDN to your tier 2-5 order
Everywhere else: (please contact me for a price...shipping changes so much internationally between country so there's no way for me to give a universal number here. )
For Tier 6 and 7 (all the noods special and not special), tracking is included in the order for USA and Canada ONLY! The price for the item + shipping costs already include tracking due to the weight of how many pins you're getting. If you require tracking Tier 6 and above and you are not located in the USA or Canada, please again, contact me so I can get you a price! If you do not upgrade to tracking, you are responsible. I will show proof I shipped it to your address of course if needed, but it will not be insured or covered if it goes missing. Sorry!
Tracking is expensive in Canada, so I wanted to give everyone the option if they want to pay more or not! Thank you so much for understanding!!
To repeat: Any country that is not the USA or Canada will not have tracking included in ANY tiers. The shipping you are being charged is airmail not tracked. In the event you'd like tracking on your order, please contact me with the tier you are backing so that I may give you the price for your order to increase by to include tracking.
Tier 1 - Thank you
This tier is just so people can help support the campaign. Anyone who pledges here will get a big shout out on your social media pages as helping out our campaign to be successful! (if you'd like, if you'd rather remain anonymous please specify that to us).
- How big are the pins? The pins are roughly 2" in size!
- What are the backings on the pin? The pin will have yellow rubber backings and two pin parts for stability.
- When can I expect to receive my pin(s)? If all goes well, no later then may 2018! However, I'll keep everyone up to date with updates if the manufacturers take longer. If this is widely successful, it may be slower due to the volume of pins needed to be made.
- Hard enamel or soft? Hard enamel!
- Is this the final run of Send noods pins? YES this will be the LAST time I get them made so please, if you wanted one and haven't gotten one yet, consider backing this project!
- Do the gladdy backing boards come with every pin? They most certainly do! Every pin will have it's Gladiolus backing board + be put into a plastic bag + bubble mailer for added protection.
- Can I request no backing board? You can if you'd like but as I have to print them in bulk, I sadly can't offer your tier for cheaper if you choose not to have the backing board included, sorry.
- I saw another send noods-? The joke has been around for awhile. My particular spin on it, is more a Final Fantasy 15 reference and the artwork is different than any other you'll see. NONE look exactly like this and I hope you find it unique/entertaining!
About our business
We are a growing pop culture geek apparel, accessory, etc business and looking to expand our lineup. The Send noods pin joke stemmed from us wanting to get into enamel pins, but wanting them to accessorize with our already designed clothing and other artwork. So we spun the joke more directed at Final Fantasy 15, but can really just be the regular joke too. Best of both worlds!
We are a husband and wife duo and work together to bring you nerdy/geeky fashion, accessories, art and fun all rolled into one!! If you love our campaign, feel free to check out our Etsy store, Facebook page, Instagram, etc for more fun geeky stuff!
Final Thank you
Thank you to everyone who helps support us in anyway! Whether it's backing the campaign, spreading the word, following our work, anything...we truly appreciate it! We are a small business (just the two of us) and every dollar helps! Understand that any money we raise from this campaign is being spent into making these pins and getting them out to you to spread the Send noods joy! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you SO much!
Risks and challenges
Due to using an outside manufacturer, some pins may end up slightly different from the images. However, I have done a run of these pins before and they came out wonderful but with every manufactured item there may be some defects or slight differences from the first time so I need to order more then what people buy just in case.
In my last order there were only 2 defects so I made sure to order more to cover them the last time.
However, the pins may look slightly different then pictured and that is the one thing outside of my hands.
The only other risk is just delays...because I'm using an outside manufacturer, there could be delays on getting them out, so I put an end of may received date deadline just in case. If this gets pushed back for any reason, I will keep everyone who supported us updated!
However, I'm confident of this manufacturer as I've used them before and will keep everyone updated no matter what here and on social media!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
