SUBJECT: 

CRYPTIDS//

An animal whose existence or survival to the present day is disputed or unsubstantiated; imposing beasts that could be labeled as monsters; a living thing having the quality of being hidden or unknown.

PROPOSAL:

THE PINS//

A run of 1.5 inch hard enamel pins featuring some of the most infamous cryptids from around the world. Inspired by art nouveau, these pins marry the classic and beautiful design style with the strange stories of these creatures to create a beautiful and unique piece of wearable art. 

To add any of these to your order, simply add the additional amount to your pledge! We will have a place on your backers survey to order what you would like.

This will be our fourth kickstarter now; the second in our series of Art Nouveau hard enamel pins. Our previous kickstarter, the Nouveau Critter Enamel Pins project, was immensely successful and could not have been possible with the support of this community.  We love our backers and supporters and want to say thank you to every single one! We literally could not do this without you! 

A special thanks to Vivian from Sugar Cubed Studio, Cassie from AishaVoya, Liz from Cubby Bunny Studios, Julia Wilkerson and Jamie and Jackie from Dinosaur Mermaid for helping us with the resources needed to make this happen!

Risks and challenges

We have now done several kickstarters, including one with the same manufacturer we used for our last nouveau pin kickstarter. We have improved our process with each one. However, there can always be issues, and we have worked in as many buffers for them as possible.

There may be small variations and alterations to the art as we complete the pin creation process. 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 kickstarters, and we are very dedicated to fulfilling everyone's faith in us, and respecting their commitments.
