About

Do you still use Winamp in 2019? Or perhaps you miss Geocities and its unique (and sometimes uniquely terrifying) pages? Or maybe you just dig that sweet mid-90's aesthetic™? Then this enamel pin set might be for you.

 Winamp Pin

-2.75 inch pin (7 cm)

-Soft Enamel Antique Nickel

-Recessed & sandblasted metal areas for that 3D feel

Special thanks to the Webamp Discord crew for giving me feedback and suggestions and even providing the original pixel font files. It's hard to translate certain things into enamel pins with all the technical restrictions, but I think we got pretty close.

Homepage Pin

-1.5 inch pin (3.8 cm)

-Hard Enamel  Nickel

-GLITTER. Can't have a cool website without a starry background.

Blue Screen of Death Pin

-1.25 inch pin (3.1 cm)

-Hard Enamel Black Nickel

-Screenprinted text

Stretch Goals

I wanted my backers to know exactly which pins they're getting, so I've decided to risk it and put all designs into the main goal. As such I haven't planned any large stretch goals for now, but I will be offering stickers! Stickers will come with every pin order if we hit these goals:

Some of these will need printing, but a couple already exist IRL:

 If this campaign goes beyond 2k, I'll probably need that to print a bigger run of pins anyway - the current estimate covers 100 of each. And anything beyond that will be used towards doing more screenprinting and designing more merch for HELLO VOID in the future!

____________________________________

17/09 UPDATE: We now have a 4th pin design!

Once we reached 4k, I just had to introduce a new pin that's been on my mind for a while. Get it stand-alone or add it to any existing pledge! (Please note that it doesn't come in any sets by default)

3D visual: final product might vary

 -Soft Enamel Antique Nickel

-Laser engraving for the text to ensure crispness!

-2.25 inch

How to add it to your pledge:

Simply go to the campaign, scroll to the rewards and click the Manage The Pledge button, or click on your current pledge.

Then select "Change your pledge" and add €12 to your existing reward. This accounts for the price of the pin and the extra shipping costs. 

If you're making a new pledge, simply do the same when you're selecting your reward.


About 

Hi, I'm Mary Safro - comic artist, designer and owner of HELLO VOID, an online shop of all things nerdy, spooky and vaporwave-y, sometimes all of the above. I've been thinking about producing a bunch of pins for HELLO VOID for quite some time now and I really hope we can make it happen! My first Kickstarter campaign was for Drugs & Wires - a printed volume of a cyberpunk (and also very 90's) webcomic I make with my collaborator Io Black. We have done a small enamel pin as part of the rewards so it helped me learn a bit about the process.  This time I'm flying solo and  trying to keep things manageable - thankfully, unlike comics pins don't need proofreading and don't take up ridiculous amount of space in the house, so I'm feeling quite a bit more prepared! LET'S MAKE THOSE PINS.

Risks and challenges

I'm confident in my chosen pin maker, but as enamel pins are a handmade product, there might be some delays. I'll keep backers posted on the progress and any issues if they occur.
