PRONOUNS enamel pins

temporary tattoo stretch goal reached! 

_______

Hi there! This is the kickstarter for a limited run of PRONOUNS enamel pins! These hard enamel lapel pins came from me wanting to make some neat accessories for anyone wanting to show off their pronouns in style. You can help me bring these things to life and support the trans and nb people in your community. Let's normalize trans identities and non-binary genders together. 

This kickstarter is for funding merch but if there are funds left over from production and distribution, I would love to be able to support Trans Lifeline (https://www.translifeline.org/), an important resource for trans people facing crisis. 

about the pins

  • 32mm tall, with varying widths
  • gold plated trim
  • metal clutch 
  • 4 unique designs to choose from

extra pins not sold through kickstarter will be sold online in my shop. http://almondette.tictail.com/

I am aiming to get all four pin designs printed which is why my initial goal is well above the usual goals you see with enamel pin kickstarters. 

kickstarter pre-order bonus

as a thank you for pledging to this kickstarter, your choice of sticker(s) will be included with your pin order. Stickers are die-cut on a white background and will be approximately 3 inches tall.

pledge tiers

I've laid them out to be pretty self-explanatory. Here's an example what my doodles look like. $3 backers will receive a pen and highlighter doodle, similar in style.

about neopronouns

I would have really wanted to include other pronouns such as fae/faer, vae/vaer, ze/hir, and the like but that would be too big for the scope of this kickstarter. However, if there is enough interest and the kickstarter reaches well beyond its original goal, I would love to add some as possible choices to order from. Thank you for understanding!

Risks and challenges

This is my first kickstarter, therefore I totally understand if you have reservations pledging to this project. Rest assured I will be handling things as best I can and take responsibility for any mistakes that may or may or happen on my part. I have experience in fulfilling customer orders. I will do my best to keep backers updated with the timeline and distribution of rewards. Please allow for extra time in the manufacturing process as there may be some changes to correct proofs, delays in shipping, etc.

EVERYTHING shown here is a conceptual mockup rendered digitally. Things be may variate between the current mockups to the final finished product, especially with the focus on getting the designs just so. Please be aware!! Thanks!!!!

Timeline: Kickstarter funds will take 3-4 weeks to clear to the bank account. Proofs and corrections will take 1-3 weeks. Manufacturing time will take around 4-5 weeks. Everything will be shipped to me and I will distribute rewards accordingly, which could take 1-2 weeks without hitches.
