THANKS A LOTL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
I was not expecting the tiLOTL wave of love and enthusiasm for my little project! WOWZA!!!! I just wanted to make some cute pins! Now I'm going to be able to relaunch my beloved small business. This means so much to me and I can't even begin to express my gratitude.

Please check the Updates page for the latest developments!

Rewards
There are six axolotl pins to choose from! Please select the reward tier that reflects the number of pins you want. (If you don't see the quantity you want, let me know and I will add another tier for you.) When the Kickstarter is over, you will receive a survey to make your pin selections. You will be able to choose any combination of the six designs!

For clarity, here are all the pin designs that will be available...

1. Gari the Albino Axolotl (white)
2. Takuan the Golden Albino Axolotl (yellow)
3. Umeboshi the Melanoid Axolotl (black)
4. Fukujin the Chimera Axolotl (two-tone)
5. Limited Edition Halotlween Axolotl (glow-in-the-dark)
6. Limited Edition Fairy Kei Axolotl (glitter)

Each hard enamel pin will be 30mm (1.18 inches) tall and come pinned to a backing card. They will be double posted with two butterfly clasps for security. Please see below for the specifics of each pin!

Goals
$800 will cover 200 Gari the Albino Axolotl Pins, shipping to backers, and Kickstarter/processing fees. If my project is overfunded, I will be able to add more colorways to my axolotl pin family! Backers will be able to choose which color(s) they want.

THANKS A LOTL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Risks and challenges

The artwork has been approved by the manufacturer. I just need to place the order! If there are any delays during production, I will let my backers know right away.

I have fulfilled two successful campaigns in the past. I got this!

P.S. I am my 5 month old's primary caregiver and sending out hundreds of packages is going to take some time. I will do my very best and ask for as much help from friends/family as I can to get your rewards out to you as quickly as possible! I STILL GOT THIS! I just want to be real with you since I had no idea how much my little project was going to blow up! WOW!
