About

Kickstarter is a crowd-funding platform that generates funds through pre-orders (a pledge) so that we are able to create new and amazing products to share with the world! How this works is you pledge now and pay at the end of the campaign. But if we do not reach our funding goal, you will not be charged. 

This will be our fourth enamel pin kickstarter and we are looking forward to expanding our collection. You may add pins from any of our previous Nouveau Critter, Nouveau Cryptid  and  House Pride campaigns to your order. Their final designs are also viewable at our website www.atomicpixies.com

Our funding goal includes the production cost for each pin, printing and merchant fees, as well as materials needed for packaging and shipping. Each pin costs approximately $300 for production and we're hoping to fund at least 14 unique designs,  but the campaign will be considered successful if we fund the first three. Your pledge amount can be increased/decreased, or canceled at any time during the campaign, risk free. After the campaign is over a survey will be sent to all backers so that you may choose the pins and rewards you like.

If you have any questions, please see the FAQ, or you may contact us at any time. 

Cheers, and thank you for your support!

From mermaids inspired by the sea creatures in the pin designs, to a possible free pin for backers and many things in-between, the more funds we raise during this campaign the more things we'll be able to create and share!


Mermaid Stickers will measure 2x3 inches and we will be sharing and updating the designs as they become finalized. You can follow us on social media for progress and previews, or keep checking back during the campaign to see what's been revealed!

Enamel effects can really add a lot to a pin design but it also increases the manufacturing price by a notable amount. With this stretch goal we will be able to fund enamel effects for all of our unlocked pins designs.  

More free stickers! Backers will now get to select two of their favorite Mermaid Sticker designs to receive with their order.

Backers will be able to add any unlocked pin design to their pledge - including  pins from previous campaigns. All pins will retail for $12.00 each but we are offering a few $10.00 (Limited) spots to our kickstarter supporters, so get them while you can! That will be the best value price for anyone only wanting a few pins. If you're a collector, or want more than a few designs we highly recommend checking out our higher reward tiers. 

If you have any interest in ordering pins in bulk, please contact us directly. We are happy to work with retailers but do not have our bulk prices listed in the interest of simplification. 

Our top reward tier will automatically include a Custom (Digital PDF) Mermaid Portrait that could be of yourself, your loved one or your favorite character living their best life beneath the sea.  Anyone is welcome to add a portrait to any pledge. However, since these will be custom, individualized pieces, these orders could have a slight delay in their portrait delivery, depending on demand.   

Once you've made your pledge and decided on the pins you like, we must you ask for a little patience before the best part comes. The manufacturing process can take several weeks up to a month, depending on the amount of designs that get ordered, plus the added duration of international shipping.  If everything goes according to plan, this is the general timeline of what you should expect from now until your pins are delivered. 

  •  August 7th | Campaign Begins
  •  August 28th | Campaign Ends - (Backer's Surveys Sent Before End of Month)
  •  Early September | Kickstarter Funds Arrive - Production Begins w/Manufacturer 
  •  Early October | Pins and Additional Items Should Start Arriving
  •  End of October | All Orders Shipped 

Thank you for your interest and support, and we look forward to sharing these new creations with you. We would be nowhere without the support of our wonderful community. In particular, we would like to thank Chubby Bunny Studios, who provides us with our sewn items, Sugar Cubed Studios and AishaVoya for their gracious wisdom, Sam&Mitch for all those muscles that help us get stuff done,  Laurel Simpson for all her help, her photography skills on the goldfish portrait and so much more, Mo for giving us roots, and all our future friends we haven't gotten to know yet. Let's do great things together!

Risks and challenges

We have now completed several successful campaigns and we will be using the same manufacturer used for our previous enamel pin collection. We strive to improve our process with each project, however, there can always be hiccups and we have tried to work in as many buffers for them as possible.

There may be small variations and alterations to the art as we complete the process. Moving from a digital design to a real life product can lead to small, subtle changes. Mixing colors, and working with metals can cause issues that might call for a reprint, delaying fulfillment. Technology can fall apart somewhere. Real life can intervene.

We do vow, however, to always be upfront and communicative in a timely manner to let you know what's happening. You can see this in our previous kickstarter campaigns, and we are very dedicated to fulfilling everyone's faith in us and respecting their commitments.
