Hello again! This has been about a year since I first started making pins. I've honestly grown a lot and will continue to make pins just as enthusiastically as I did a year ago. This time, the kickstarter will be something relatively small. It's simply for completing the Studio Ghibli Enamel Pins that I started with a little while back.
I love Hayao Miyazaki's works so much and continue to rewatch them over and over again. This is in dedication to him and his amazing imagination.
Thanks to support from my past kickstarter, I already have three studio ghibli pins already made!
❥❥❥Howl's Moving Castle . . . ❥❥ Princess Mononoke . . . ❥ Spirited Away . . .
❥If you'd like these pins as well, simply add USD $12/additional pin to your pledge!
❥If you're an early bird pledger, you get to keep the exclusive price of USD $10/additional pin option to add on.

Risks and challenges
I have experience with kickstarter as well as been in the pin making business for a year now. I'm able to make the process a lot smooth but a full disclosure is always warranted. I have a designated manufacturer that I work with and my pins come from overseas so that explains the time necessary to produce all the enamel pins. All designs displayed so far are tentative designs until I can get a better idea of what is possible with the the mold to make these design. I will try my best to adhere to the original design as much as possible.
Some manufacture errors are possible in mass production so it there are any B-grade enamel pins of greater than 15% in a batch, I will request a remake for quality. I will be on top of quality check before and after receiving pins to the best of my capabilities.Please note that some slight color variation may occur from my original artwork due to each viewer's monitor settings.
I am the sole person designing, planning, ordering, packing and shipping out the packages. If any delay comes along, I will certainly let you backers know as soon as possible and keep you all updated. I will answer questions to the best of my ability.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
