About

I Love Unicorns Enamel Pin by Nina Bolen

$1,210

52

Who doesn't love unicorns right? And if you're looking at this pin you probably love unicorns too or know someone that does. 

The Project 

This is a simple one,  enamel pins featuring my unicorn artwork. I've all ready made one pin, so I have the company setup and ready to go. So now all I need is you wonderful people on Kickstarter to help me get them made.  

What you get:

1 nice soft enamel pin for $10 each. Finished pins will be about 1.25" wide to go nicely with my last pin. The design is currently being mocked up by a pin company and if anything changes I'll add it here and in the updates.

Other rewards:  

If you don't want a pin, you can also get other cool rewards!

For $5 get a cool postcard mailed to you! Postcards will be random, and each will come with a original little dragon sketch by me on the back. Some might be my artwork, other awesome fantasy artist (I collect postcards & have a ton of cool ones) or one of the many places I visit while traveling the US for shows. I tend to stop at zoos, national parks & fun places like that.

Prints of past artwork 

2~2.5" X 3.5" ACEO sized prints- $5

4" X 6" sized print- $4 each

5" X 7" sized print- $5 each

8.5" X 11" sized print- $10 each

$1,300- Purple Hair-LOCKED

 $1,400- Purple Hair & Silver Horn- LOCKED

 $1,500-Shades of Pink Hair-LOCKED

 $1,600-Shades of blue, green, red?-LOCKED

I'll have a poll where everyone can vote for their next favorite color. Blue maybe? Green? Who knows!

$1,700-Glitter! LOCKED

"I love Unicorns" pin can be upgraded for $2 more to have spot glitter. The mane and tail will be glittery, because what unicorn doesn't need some glitter. So if this is unlocked you'll have the option of the original $10 pin without glitter or a new $12 pin with glitter.

$2,000-Glitter Upgrade-LOCKED

I'll offer the other colors with the glitter upgrade to the hair.

$3,000-Gold plating-LOCKED

Option to have the horn and outline done in gold

 

Costs break down:  

Just a rough break down based on ordering the minimum of 100 pins 

Manufacturing: Around $500 to $600 Normal colors around $900 for glitter colors

Shipping: Around $200 this would be the cost of shipping the pins to me & packing materials to have the pins shipped back out.  

Kickstarter fees: Around $70 to $80

Risks and challenges

This is my 2nd pin so not many risks, I'll be using the same company I did before so I know the quality is good. This will also be my 4th Kickstarter and with the help of my husband we should be able to get everything done pretty fast.
