I am a professional animation storyboard artist. I've worked on tv shows like The Simpsons, Futurama and Disney's Descendants. In my free time I like to draw cute animals and I really enjoy designing enamel pins.
This Kickstarter's initial funding goal is to make 100 of each pin design shown, along with the needed packaging supplies, etc. About a month after the kickstarter is completed, the pins will arrive and I will ship them to you!
These pins will be hard enamel. This gives the pin a high quality smooth, glossy finish! Each pin will have one color in glitter so they will be extra fabulous (except for the otter family)! The exact placement of the glitter will be determined during sample production by me. Each pin will have one black rubber back clutch as well as a backstamp with aimeemajor.com.
You can choose one design, pick your fave two or three, or pledge for the whole set. If you buy more than one pin there is a discount!
NOTE: When you choose a pledge, choose based on the number of pins that you want. Unlocked stretch goals are to fund production but aren't freebie add ons. So if you want a Dinosaur Tea and a Sea Monster and an Otter Family, choose a pledge for three pins. Hope that makes sense! Much thanks!
- 1.5 inches
- hard enamel
- gold metal
- 1 glitter color! (except for otter family)
- back stamp!
I like to wear pins on my shirts, dresses, hats and bags. They're a fun way to encourage myself and share cute things with others!
- These pins would also make great gifts for friends and family with the holiday season coming up (or for any reason!)
- STRETCH GOALS
- UNLOCKED STRETCH GOAL: Mermaid Pin Variant! This pin will have all the same specs as the other pins, 1.5", hard enamel, backstamp, glitter. This is a pledge pin you can choose by itself or you can choose to buy multiple pins or modify your pledge to buy more than one pin.
UNLOCKED STRETCH GOAL: Sea Monster Pin! This pin will have all the same specs as the other pins, 1.5", hard enamel, backstamp, glitter. This is a pledge pin you can choose by itself or you can choose to buy multiple pins or modify your pledge to buy more than one pin.
UNLOCKED!: Otter Family Pin! This pin will have all the same specs as the other pins, except it won't have glitter (just wasn't needed for these cute otters!) They will be 1.5", hard enamel and backstamp. This is a pledge pin you can choose by itself or you can choose to buy multiple pins or modify your pledge to buy more than one pin.
Examples of past pins I've done:
When will I get my stuff?
The pins will be done approximately 3 weeks to 1 month after the completion of the kickstarter. (The Kickstarter runs for about month as well.) I have used this manufacturer 4 times before and they were able to complete the pins quickly and with great quality. With the help of BackerKit, I should be able to fulfill this project quickly and easily. Barring unforeseen delays pins should start shipping at the end of November or early December and will arrive before the holiday season.
A few notes on shipping and fulfillment:
I'll be using BackerKit for post-Kickstarter surveys.
International backers, please note: I am sorry that international shipping is higher! Rates are set by the USPS and not by me. I am not responsible for customs duties and fees that may apply, and will not "mark down" packages.

Risks and challenges
I've been selling items through my website aimeemajor.com for years and more recently on etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/aimeekitty and I have excellent feedback! The manufacturer I'm using for the pins I have used for 4 previous designs with great results. The pin designs are done and ready to go!
I will always keep you updated on everything :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
