About this project

$1,766

68

I am Ishaway, a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. Hailing from forested and briny places along coastal Virginia I produce a wide range of traditional media work. I have an array of prints, stickers, and some hand bound or altered books which I sell online and at conventions up and down the East Coast.
I am active on Tumblr, Twitter, and have selections of work up on my website, www.ishaway.com.

I have been watching the enamel pin community blossom among independent artists makes my inner art collector sing.

I am launching this Kickstarter campaign to fund a limited run of an enamel pin design to help grow the pool of artists and add this distinguished item to my production line up.

Pin Details:

This campaign is designed to fund the making of:  

  • 100 hard enamel pins of Meditating Rabbit
  • Backer cards the pins will be affixed to.
  • Shipping pledged pins to the minimum backer number needed to fund the campaign.
  • 3%-5% for Kickstarter Fees

I have rolled the estimate costs of shipping for the continental USA into each pledge amount. International shipping is estimated on the pledge tiers. 

Base Funds needed: $290 FUNDED

This amount allows me to produce 100 hard enamel pins and backer cards for a professional final product. This also covers shipping out all the backer rewards. 

Stretch Goals

Reaching for a higher goals is always fun right? The stretch goals in this campaign are geared toward stickers, because who doesn't love stickers?

$325 Kiss cut Sticker - I will add 2”x3” kiss cut vinyl sticker to all backer levels. - FUNDED
$385 Die Cut Sticker - I will make the sticker based on the Meditating Rabbit design a larger, free standing die cut sticker. Estimated size: 2"x4" - FUNDED

Let us shoot for the moon!
$610 Moon Rabbit - If this goal is reached I will have enough funds to add a variation pin! - FUNDED
This variation pin will feature a rabbit, seated in a pink lotus, with blue robes. The red disk will be replaced with a full moon, and the rabbit in the moon silhouette, all outlined in striking silver plate. This pin will also be a limited run of 100, like the Mediating Rabbit. 

$910 More pins??? heck yeah! - FUNDED
This amount has been reached and current backers are being polled on the design of a third enamel pin!
Like the Meditating Rabbit and Moon Rabbit this 3rd pin will be a limited run of 100. 

Shipping & Delivery Time   

Shipping within the US is already included in the base price for all reward levels. This means the amount you pledge is the amount you pay. Overseas shipping will be added per region to my best estimation.

The rewards for this campaign are designed to ship in January 2017, baring any production problems or shipping delays.  

Risks and challenges

Since this project involves the use of third parties, one to produce the enamel pin and one to produce the backer cards, the biggest known risks are with shipping errors, or printing errors. Once the art work is forwarded to the production teams these variables are out of my hands.

Working with these kinds of challenges are part of my work as a freelance illustrator. Thus I am keeping my shipping times realistic and allowing for any delays they may cause.
