About

$1,301

Welcome to our first Kickstarter! We are two biologists who want to share our passion for the ocean with you through our pins. We want to create a collection highlighting some of our favorite seaside dwelling birds. We thank you for your support!

This Kickstarter's initial funding goal of $400 is to produce the Puffin hard enamel pin in 4 color variants as well as cover backing cards, Kickstarter fees, taxes, and shipping costs/supplies. 

Note: This is a digital mock-up of the design and colors may vary slightly from screen image to production.

 Pin Details:

  • 1” hard enamel pin
  • Silver plating
  • Rubber clutch backing
  • Backing card

If we hit the initial funding goal, more designs can be unlocked with stretch goals! Below are the goals we have so far, but more may be added later!

$1600 Stretch Goal or PRE-ORDER OPTION = Manta ray & Sunfish hard enamel pins measuring at 1 inch at their widest point. We are so excited about these pins we decided we would also make a pre-order option available! Regardless of if the $1600 Stretch Goal is met, you can pre-order these cuties! If we meet the $1600 Stretch Goal, they will also be available as an unlocked pin :)

Once the Kickstarter has ended and backer surveys are completed, all unlocked pins will go on to production! Production takes an estimated 5-8 weeks, but if we reach our 1st goal early, we will start production right away!

Estimated timeline (if we reach our goal early, we will update this!): 

  • February: Kickstarter Period & Backer Surveys 
  • March-May: Production Period
  • May: Shipping Period with USPS First class shipping

Risks and challenges

Though this is our first Kickstarter, we are already familiar with enamel pin production and order fulfillment. Please visit our Etsy store if you'd like to see our customer reviews. :)

Most of the anticipated potential risks occur in pin production or shipping delays. If a delay occurs during either phase, all backers will be notified. As with all kickstarters, if this is not funded, there will be no charge to you.

Thank you for your support! :)
