My name is Dean, also known as 'DeanDraws' on various social media platforms. Welcome to my first Kickstarter! This campaign will be focusing on creating 2 enamel pin designs at first. Captain America, and Iron Man- as well as offering 17 MORE unlockable designs inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
During the campaign, pins will be sold at $12 each. This Kickstarter price is exclusive, so you'll never get a better chance to grab one of these little heroes! Rewards- like stickers, buttons, and other exclusives- will be offered for free at future tiers as the campaign goes on.
- Pin-backed buttons are 1.5 inches tall (standard sized). Made from stainless steel.
- Sticker sheets will be made of weather resistant matte vinyl. Each sheet will feature 8 characters each with no repeating characters!
- Patches will be about 3 x 2.5 inches, embroidered, and feature iron on backing.
- Charms will be made of clear acrylic, will feature a metal chain, and clasp at the top.
- Janurary 25th: Kickstarter is launched; runs for 30 days.
- February 24th: Kickstarter Campaign ends and surveys are emailed to you during that week. This is when you'll get to tell me what pins you want and include any other information (such as add-on's, updating payment information and mailing addresses, etc).
- March: After a waiting period, Kickstarter funds are released. I will immediately put the pins into production! I predict that it may take around 25-30 days to receive the pins in-hand from the manufacturer. (Because there are now so many new designs, this may take a couple weeks longer. I will keep you posted!)
- April: By this time I should have received the pins! With any luck, they won't need any tune-ups or corrections, and I will begin shipping out rewards! During this time, please allow 1-2 weeks for quality check, hand-packing and shipping your orders! I will be handling each and every pin on my own, so your patience will be much appreciated. If there are any delays, I will be posting updates here!
- Late April-May: Huzzah! You should receive your pins in the mail within 3-5 business days if you are within domestic US. Please allow for extra time if you live in Alaska or Hawaii. I will be keeping you up to date if there are any unexpected delays.
- The timeline above is a very loose estimate. I've allotted myself plenty of leeway, so if everything goes perfectly, your pins may get to you much sooner!
Pledge risk-free now and pay later if the campaign is successful! Kickstarter will not take any money if the campaign is unsuccessful. By "pledging", you will be helping to raise funds for the costs of each pin. This includes manufacturer fees, shipping fees, packing supplies, printing backing cards, protective clear bags, Kickstarter fees/payment processing fees, as well as other taxes/fees.
Risks and challenges
- You will not be charged anything if this Kickstarter does not reach its goal!
- There may be delays in production or shipping, due to timezones, and being a one man packaging machine. However, I will endure to do my best to make sure that everyone receives their pins and stickers as quickly as possible.
- Due to the hand-made nature of these enamel pins, there is a possibility of defective pins. If this happens, I will communicate with the manufacturers to get this sorted as soon as possible. In some cases, all or some of the pins may have to be remade, which will extend the period of about 2 weeks, depending on how many need to be remade.
- Inspections will be another challenge. This will take time! I want to ensure that everyone gets the perfect pin(s)!
- All packages will include tracking! However, packages may be delayed due to inclement weather, post worker strikes, or other unforeseeable events. I appreciate your patience, and am happy to replace a package if it is marked as officially LOST by USPS on their tracking website. Although, if your package is marked as delivered, I cannot replace it. Please make sure that your delivery address is a safe location to receive your rewards.
- I will keep you posted via Updates, and through my social media outlets! Please feel free to reach out to me via email if you have anymore questions! (BraveLittleAvengers @ gmail. com) :)
