UPDATE: We've reached our first goal! ALL THREE Enamel Pins, the Tiki-O-Lantern Shirt, the Art Prints, Postcards and Add-On Shop are all unlocked!
Here at Deeply Dapper we love Tiki and Retro Themed Design. We also really, really love horror and Halloween! So for this project we decided to combine our love for both and create a line of enamel pins, screenprinted t-shirts and canvas tote bags (Perfect for Trick 'r Treating) that feature tiki takes on classic Halloween imagery! Our initial goal will unlock the first design - The Tiki O'Lanterns in pin, T-Shirt and Bag format, with more designs, add-ons and freebies unlocking through stretch goals!
Like most of our projects, we have to make some super fun, quality Enamel Pins. For Freaky Tiki, we will have all three in Hard Enamel.
- Tiki-O-Lanterns - UNLOCKED - Unlocks at Initial Goal Achievement - $1500
- Glow In The Dark Skeleton - UNLOCKED - Unlocks at Initial Goal Achievement - $1500
- Black Cat - UNLOCKED - Unlocks at Initial Goal Achievement - $1500
Relatively new to the shop - we have just started making screenprinted t-shirts of my designs. For Freaky Tiki, we want to take that up a notch, buying our own machine allowing us to print our own shirts as well as fun new things, like quality canvas tote bags - perfect for Trick Or Treat Candy, Books, Groceries or that Rum Run! All of the designs will initially be printed in a single ink color on black, but if we reach certain goals, we plan to increase to multiple ink colors and little extras, like logos and custom tags!
- Tiki-O-Lanterns - UNLOCKED - T-shirts and Totes Unlock at Initial Goal Achievement - $1500
- Skeleton - LOCKED - Shirts and Bags Unlock at Stretch Goal #3
- Black Cat - LOCKED - Shirts and Bags Unlock at Stretch Goal #3
Finally, we also have postcards of the artwork and Exclusive Signed and Numbered Art Prints of the pieces I did for this project. The postcards will be 5x7 stock prints. The Art Prints will be hand printed on archival textured paper and each will be 8x10 and individually signed and numbered. These will ONLY be available during the Kickstarter and we will not print more than ordered, so the edition number will be determined by the number of backers that select each style. Backers at the "Blue Hawaiian" and "Big Island" levels will also receive an exclusive Mystery 4th print and a 5x7 original sketch of something suitably Freaky and Tiki!
- Postcard Prints - UNLOCKED - Unlock at Initial Goal Achievement - $1500
- Limited Edition Prints - UNLOCKED - Unlocks at Initial Goal Achievement - $1500
Instead of doing Early Bird pricing, we have decided to give an Exclusive Mystery Bag to ALL BACKERS that back Freaky Tiki in the first 48 HOURS of the project at the Martini level or higher! What will it be? Tricks or Treats? Maybe both! We can say that it'll include a pinback button and some other goodies including a bonus postcard and more! (Available ONLY to backers that pledge $10 or more. Early backers are any that back before 11:59 PM on August 22nd)
STRETCH GOALS! In addition to unlocking the other designs in each product, our stretch goals will also unlock upgrades like additional colors on the screenprinted items, new Add-On Shop items and freebies!

- AND MORE TO COME!
If you would like to add any items from the Add-On Shop, you can simply increase your pledge to include the cost of the additional items you would like. You will then specify which items you added when we send out surveys at the end of the project. (US Backers Only: The Add-On Shop is only available to "Martini" level backers and above ($10)
A NOTE FOR INTERNATIONAL BACKERS: Because these items have shipping costs built in for US customers, we ask that you don't add funds for Add-On items at this time. Please select your choice of backing level. After the project is complete, we will open a separate Backers-Only Shop with correct International and Domestic shipping costs.

Risks and challenges
Although there is usually some small variance in manufacturing time, we foresee little risks with the project. We have designed and made over 30 previous designs of Enamel Pins and we have been making and shipping items for six years. We have already test-run the T-shirts and though there will be a learning curve with the new machine, we have been practicing and training to make sure our items are ready to ship and arrive in time for Halloween.
