About

  Hi there! My name is Gus, and this is my first Kickstarter.

This project is set up to be a sort of preorder for FFXIV Carbuncle themed hard enamel pins! I would like to make different ”Buncy” pin colors to represent each of the Carbuncle summon glamours available to the summoner class in FFXIV, with the option to add in a couple extra special colors and designs if folks really enjoy them!

If you'd like to follow me for updates, art, and the likely occasional rambling, you can find me at my Twitter or Instagram account.

 The initial goal that I have set for this project is to produce Emerald, Topaz, and Ruby Carbuncle pins.

Each pin will have a black rubber clutch, a backing card, and will be made with hard enamel and a dark nickel (grey/black) plating. The pins will be approximately 25-30mm! (Designs are subject to change slightly to comply with factory specifications.)

 The pricing on these pins is the lowest it will be (barring rare things like the discounted sale of any slightly flawed pins). After the Kickstarter, they will be listed at regular price.

In addition to the Buncys above, I have designed a few more pins to add to the pile in the event that this project does really well. After the initial funding, a new pin will unlock with each additional $300 above that. There are several design possibilities that may be reached by your help. 

The first two designs to be unlocked are Obsidian, then Moonstone Carbuncle, with a slightly altered design from the original mold. (Designs subject to minor tweaks pre-production!)

After these two are unlocked, there are several vastly different FFXIV styled pins that I've designed that could be additionally funded by this project. With no set release schedule for the following, backers will be able to vote on which pin out of the additional options they would like to have released first. (Designs subject to minor tweaks pre-production!)

September: Kickstarter Launch!

October: Kickstarter End! Surveys sent out!

November-December: Pin production! Once pins are received from the manufacturer, they will be checked over for quality, then packaged for shipment.

January-February: Shipping starts! 

This timeline is mainly based on production estimates from the manufacturer, with a bit of space peppered in just in case there are any issues that arise. The timeline may become pushed out, however backers will be notified with updates should any delays present themselves.

The funding goal provided includes the cost of production for the pins, as well as the additional materials needed for packing and shipping. Certain pledge levels will ship to additional countries with available shipping options - international shipping costs have been listed for those levels!

 As questions arise, I will add them to the FAQ section! If you don't see your Answers there, or if you need a little extra help, please feel free to contact me through DM on twitter, or by emailing me at g.p.strikes@gmail.com. Please make sure to title any emails properly, so that I can respond to you correctly in a timely fashion!

Risks and challenges

While this is my first Kickstarter, I do have experience with producing, maintaining, and selling professionally designed merchandise, and I am confident that I'll be able to fulfill the needs of this project. I have done much to research various production costs and speed-bumps that may arise, allowing me to properly plan for both the best and worst case scenarios.

Design changes to all pins shown will be minor tweaks, color fixes, (like getting everything Pantone matched!), and refined from their roughs, so you can rest assured that you will be receiving a quality design.

The biggest challenge for me would be missing out on funding. My online presence is not huge, so I will be relying on word of mouth from my friends and the community. Please consider boosting the project's radius on Twitter or Instagram!

The biggest risks that I would face is for anything to go wrong with the pin order, delaying possible shipments. It should not take too long to order and receive the pins, but in the unlikely event any stock ends up defective, I want to be sure to get it right, and to send out the highest quality product that I can.

Backers will be updated on all changes, as well as the various stages of production. I will make sure that any issues in production or shipping are marked as URGENT for your convenience!
