About

Hey all, I'm Franki Hanke; I'm a designer and pin maker with a creative vocabulary. Depending on who I'm with, I vary from a stubbed-toe f-bomber to a bit of a sailor (sorry dad). I believe that words are just words, but some are a lot more fun to say! 

This project features cute scripted curse words in pastel tones and glitter, because who the fuck doesn't like glitter? With the second stretch goal, we'll start unlocking smaller accent pins that allow you to customize your personal favorite curse style. 

The first pin, my own go-to curse, will read "shit" in pastel blue with a rainbow glitter over top. This pin will measure an inch across with silver metal plating and hard enamel. 

As of September 16th, we reached our initial goal of $450 to fund the production of the "shit" pin. Now, we are working towards stretch goal one. As additional goals are unlocked, more reward tiers will be added so you can purchase more of the collection together. 

If you previously pledged, but would like to now upgrade to an added reward tier for more pins, here's a webpage with instructions from Kickstarter on how to Manage your Pledge. 

The first stretch goal, unlocked at $875, will add two additional pins: another curse word and our first accent pin. This is our next goal to hit! "Merde" was my curse of choice in middle school French class (which I studied overall for about seven years). I delighted in cursing without anyone knowing, that is, until my French teacher caught me! Zut! 

The accent pins will be petite pins for customizing the style of your expletives on your jacket or pinboard. They'll be small enough (under an inch) to make great board fillers for collectors. 

The first accent pin will be around .60 inch with the same silver metal plating and glitter as the other pins so it will match seamlessly beside any curse!The first accent pin will be the same blue/glitter combination as the first pin so you can make a perfect pair: "shit!" 

The second stretch goal at $1,110 will unlock two more pins: another curse and another accent. 

To help us unlock this oh-so-mysterious stretch goal, pledge now for Two Pins + Accent to start building your vocabulary!

Once stretch goal one is unlocked, I'll reveal the designs of this stretch goal and add reward levels to pledge for them. Pledge now to help reach this goal and to receive updates.

By pledging to this Kickstarter campaign, you're doing more than buying a pin. You're support the production of pins that otherwise won't happen. You make them possible. Besides that, you have access to special pricing that won't be offered after the campaign and you'll get these pins faster than anyone else as Kickstarter rewards will be completed and shipped before these are listed online anywhere for other purchasing. 

 Following launch in early September, this project will run for two weeks. After the close of a successful campaign, I will send backer surveys where you supply your address and your choices for rewards. Replying quickly to these surveys will prevent delays. At this time, Kickstarter will do some work behind the scenes before releasing funds, this can take 2-3 weeks in my experience. I cannot finalize my production orders until Kickstarter releases the funds for me to use. 

Early October, pins will be ordered and produced during the month. I should receive pins in my hand by November to get them packaged and shipped. I anticipate getting rewards to people in late November or early December. Those outside of the United States are at greater risk of a long timeline, due to shipping times. 

If you have a question that hasn't been answered here, send me a message. 

If you've already pledged, continue to support the project by sharing the word on social media. When you do, tag me everyone at @TheFrankiHanke. If you can't afford a pledge, but want to support this project, spreading the word on social media in incredibly helpful!

Risks and challenges

This will be my third Kickstarter, so I am comfortable with the process and purposefully budget for slight delays with the timeline I present to you, my backers. Even with minor delays, pin will arrive late November - early December.

For those in the domestic United States, shipping is the fastest to you as I am located on the East Coast. Those located outside of the continental United States are at greatest risk of shipping delays.

That said, with manufacturing pins, I must rely on an outside producer who are subject to their own unforseen challenges. Any delays would likely happen on their side, outside of my control. If this happens, all backers will be well-informed through backer updates.
