About

FUNDED Pixelated Heart Ita Bag - New Stretch Goal Colors!

$7,089

145

Hello and thank you so much for your interest in my campaign! My name is Stephanie and I'm the owner of Geek the Halls. My shop was first known for hand-made ornaments inspired by our favorite geektastic fandoms. Over the past year, I've become more known for my kawaii resin charms!

I'm a huge pin collector (and have made a few designs for my shop) and love to display pins on my ita bags. With that, I wanted to design a bag that would be great for a retro/gamer aesthetic! I've always loved pixelated hearts, so I knew this was the design I wanted to create.

Be sure to follow me on facebook and instagram!

This project is specifically dedicated to help fund my most ambitious project ever, my pixelated heart ita backpack! The initial goal is to fund 200 of my original red and black bags (as seen in photos). The goal will be reached at $3,000 USD. Once that is successfully funded, other colorful, kawaii, pastel colors will be made available to unlock!

The bag is made out of faux leather and has two zippered sections. The first zippered section is a glittered, vinyl front window in the shape of a pixelated heart. It zips all the way to the bottom so you can add your own insert. The second section zips halfway down and contains 1 zippered pocket as well as two open pockets. 

The second section can fit laptops and tablets that have a 15" screen or smaller! It's the perfect back pack for conventions or to express your kawaii self on your school campus!

Overall Bag Size:

  • 12 inches in width  
  • 14 inches in height
  • 4 inches in depth
  • (30.48cm x 35.56cm x 10.16cm)

Window:  

  • 10.5 inches in width
  • 11 inches in height
  • (26.67cm x 27.94cm) 

Adjustable Back-Pack Straps:

  • At their longest : 35" 
  • At their shortest: 20"

 *Inserts are not included*

Stretch goals will include additional ita bag colors!

 NEW COLOR!

 

This is a mock-up of what colors may look like. Actual colors may vary. However, if other colors get unlocked, I will keep everyone posted with manufacturer photos.

If all stretch goals are achieved, I will work to add peach/dreamsicle,  and white!

All Backers at the Early Bird level or higher will receive the quantity of ita backpacks they have chosen. If multiple colors are funded, I will send out a survey asking what color(s) you would like when the project ends.  

All Backers at the Early Bird level or higher will also be getting a postcard thank you print of my original characters, Garland, Tinsel, and Holly, with a personalized thank you note.

All Backers at the Early Bird level or higher will also get a complimentary pixelated heart enamel pin that will match the bag color you choose!

 Cost Breakdown includes the following:

  • Production of ita bags: $2200
  • Shipping & Handling: ~$500
  • Kickstarter Fee's: ~$200
  • Misc. (this is for "wiggle room" - it may be added to areas where more funds are needed): ~$100

Total for initial goal = $3,000 USD

THANK YOU!

I would like to extend a wholehearted thank you to my friends, loved ones, and supporters. I'm just a small-town gal who loves to make things, but along the way, I've met some pretty amazing people. Thank you all so much for keeping me inspired, offering guidance, and being so accepting of me. You all are the absolute best.
Special thanks to the following:

Risks and challenges

While I have worked with enamel pin manufacturers, this is the first time I have worked with a bag manufacturer. While it has been a learning curve, I am extremely happy with the sample piece I received and am more than confident in the manufacturer that I chose.

Just as working with any manufacturer, there could possibly be unexpected delays. If such an occasion were to happen, I will be posting updates not just here on my Kickstarter, but also on my Facebook and Instagram.
