About

The Campaign

Dice Cats is an Instagram account where actual cats roll polyhedral dice in their own D&D adventure! This project is for enamel pins and stickers directly inspired by the concept; each design features cats interacting with different role playing dice. The artwork is commissioned by my friend @NicPlusUltra; the same artist who made the dice tray also featured on the channel.

Rewards

The rewards in this campaign are enamel pins with matching stickers! Each goal we hit will unlock a new design.

The primary goals have been met and the first seven designs are unlocked! Scroll down to see the stretch goal designs we have added!
 

Pin Specifications:

  • Gold Plated
  • Hard Enamel
  • 1.5”
  • Double Post
  • Rubber Backings
  • "Dice Cats" Back Stamp

Sticker Specifications

  • 4”
  • Satin finish

Stretch Goals

We have a series of stretch goals planned out!

Stage 1: Alternate Kitties - COMPLETE!

The first round of stretch goals unlocked a series of alternate versions of the main designs. These will change the cat types and have them holding glitter-enamel dice; two of the kitties will even have glitter in their coloring! We were thrilled when people said they were getting pins to match their cats, and we wanted to offer some more options.

  • This will be adding alternate versions of the current designs to choose from; including all-white, black and orange tortoiseshell, grey, choco, diluted tortoiseshell, ragdoll, and orange tabby!
  • All dice in these will have Glitter-Enamel! 
  • The white kitty holding the d20 will also have iridescent glitter coloring, and the choco kitty holding the d8 will also have a glitter coloring.
  • All designs will come with matching stickers.

Stage 2: New Designs - Current Goals 

The Dice Goblin: UNLOCKED!

Our first new design is a Sphinx cat that embodies the spirit of every dice collector! This hairless kitty is perfect for any hoarder of shiney click clacks and is absolutely precious!

 We're going BIG on these; they will be a bit larger than the previous designs!

Dice Goblin specifications:

  • 2" Big!
  • Copper plating
  • Glitter-enamel Gold pile!
  • Hard Enamel
  • Two Posts
  • Rubber Backings
  • Dice Cats Backstamp

Of course, each will come with a matching 4" sticker!

Second Design: The Mimic!

Goal: $3,300

Featuring a curious kitty and his sneaky friend who's ready to ambush, our second design highlights the playful antics of our feline friends! As our only design with two kitties, we have an adventure tuxedo who's checking out a treasure, a brown tabby playing one of the most iconic D&D monsters, and too much adorable detail for a normal sized pin!

Mimic Specifications:  

  • 2" Big!
  • Copper plating 
  • Hard enamel 
  • 2 back posts 
  • Rubber backings 
  • Dice Cats backstamp  

It will also come with a matching 4" sticker!  

There is one more design left after this. It is our favorite, and we can't wait to show you guys!

  • 10% Buffer
  • 25% Shipping and Packaging
  • 55% Pins and Stickers

Calendar

While subject to change slightly, this is a projected view of events:
 

9/01/19 – End of the campaign! We will know what designs were unlocked and how many to order. Artwork will be sent to the manufacturers and down payments are made.

9/02/19 – Funds from the pledges are collected and payment reminders are sent out.

9/03/19 – Surveys will be sent out based on what has been unlocked.

9/10/19 – Survey reminders are sent out.

*Sometime around 2 weeks after the campaign ends, funds are released to us and final orders can be placed.

9/17/19 – Surveys are closed

We expect the manufacturing and shipping to take about a month. I will post an update when I receive the rewards and begin quality checks, sorting, and packaging. I am estimating conservatively that this will take about 2 weeks. Updates will be posted during this time with a more accurate time as to when they will be shipped out. Once everything is shipped, the campaign will be officially complete and we will open an Etsy shop for any remaining items.

Risks and challenges

While the numbers have been worked out far in advance, it is always possible that unforeseen events may occur; the most common of these would be shipping and manufacturing delays. To help mitigate this, I am using a pin manufacturer that has been used by a friend for their own successful Kickstarter campaign and ongoing merchandise. This company was recommended for their quality and shipping speed. For the stickers, I am also using a company recommended for their quality and speed; as well as have a backup company that I have used before should an issue arise. Should a risk or challenge pop up, I will commit to full transparency in the situation and try to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. Additionally, I will be ordering an additional 15% of the rewards to ensure that only A Grade pins are shipped out to backers;
