Hi! I’m MJ and this is my seventh Kickstarter project for my brand, o.mj studio! It's a super short one so don't wait too long to snag your favorites!
This collection will feature CUTE HALLOWEEN GHOSTIES to accompany you to go trick-and-treating this Halloween (:
Reaching the initial goal of S$300 would unlock the first Ghostie Pin!
The remaining Ghosties will be available as Stretch Goals so if the design you are interested in is still locked, please still pledge to help unlock them since you can edit your pledge anytime before the campaign ends if it remains locked!
By pledging, you'll get the pins at a discount and any extras will then be sold on my Etsy store. Also, your credit card will not be charged until the campaign ends successfully so don’t worry (':
The pins are hard enamel (smooth finish) and are about 1 - 1.4 inches (specifics are provided below) with gold plating. They will come with my brand logo at the back as well as colored rubber clutches and a backing card to match their type!
For this Kickstarter campaign only, there will be special Screen-Printed Halloween details for the first three designs, like the Orange Ribbon and Scar Marks, Light Grey Skull and Patches as well as the Grey Patch and BOO! text. This is exclusive to the first batch of pins funded through this Kickstarter! Remaining pins from this campaign may be sold through physical events or listed on Etsy for a limited run but subsequent batches will no longer have these Screen-Printed Halloween details so do get yours now! (:
If you would like some of these new Stretch G(oal)ties, simply select the new pin tiers that have been created, or top up SGD$13 per pin if you are on the Early Bird 3 Pin Tier currently.
The backing cards will have a holographic foil-stamped effect so it'll be pretty for you guys to stick your mini stickers over the holes left by the pin post and still use them as cute bookmarks or something! (:
(1) Mini Sticker of corresponding design with each pin pledged (UNLOCKS AT GOAL!)
These stickers will be the same size as the actual pins and can be pasted over the holes left by the pins on the backing card. Please don't throw the backing cards away (': They can be reused as bookmarks etc.
(2) Halloween Sticker Pack for backers pledging for the Three Pins tier and above! (UNLOCKS AT GOAL!)
There will be two versions of the sticker pack (A/B) which are handmade and each pack consists of 3 stickers featuring the different Halloween Ghosties. They are waterproof but not weatherproof so I would avoid outdoor and dishwasher usage (': but they'll be perfect for your bullet journals, diaries and even phones and laptops! There are two laminate options for the stickers: Glossy or Glitter, and are around 1.5 - 2 inches in width so they are about twice the size of the matching mini stickers that would come which every pin pledged. Glossy stickers are more vibrant in color while Glitter stickers have small *shimmery* sparkles and more muted colors!
Each Sticker Pack is SGD$3 and includes 3 designs. If you get two Sticker Packs, you can get all 6 stickers from Version A + B! Please indicate that you've pledged for a Sticker Pack as well as the Version and Laminate Preference in the survey that will be sent after the campaign is funded successfully!
The *Sticker Pack only tier* will be shipped via Normal Mail, without tracking, at a lower cost!
For existing backers who wish to add these stickers to their current pledge, please refer to the Add-ons section below and change your current pledge amount accordingly. There will be no additional shipping fees for this sticker pack.
(3) A6 Halloween 'Pac-Man' Print for backers pledging for the *Early Bird* Three Pins tier and above! (UNLOCKS AT GOAL!)
This is also available as an add-on for any tier! (Refer to Add-on section)
The Print (300gsm) is A6 sized (~148mm x 100mm). Do indicate if you would like rounded corners for your print during the survey! Just keeping options opened for different preferences (:
Individual stickers would be SGD$1 for each design if you would like to get them separately or perhaps multiples of a particular design. (Only available as add-ons to existing pin or sticker pack tiers) All designs from my previous Kickstarter are available as well! Do message me for a list of available designs if you are interested! Please indicate your choice of stickers in the survey that will be sent after the campaign is funded successfully!
As usual, there will be some color differences between the display colors and the actual product! I've tried my best to match them though!
Please add the corresponding amount to your current pledge amount for the ADD-ONS as stated below:
(1) Halloween Sticker Pack: SGD$3 (Refer to Freebie Section)
(2) Individual Stickers: SGD$1 (Refer above)
(3) A6 Halloween Print: SGD$3 (Refer to Freebie Section)
All prices are inclusive of shipping fees for the additional products and will be mailed together with your Starters (: Please let me know the add-ons you pledged for subsequently in the survey!
PIN MANUFACTURING: 60% of the funds will go towards the production of the pins. This includes the pins itself, rubber pin clutches and the shipment of pins to me.
PACKAGING & SHIPPING: 30% of the funds will go into packaging and shipping. This includes bubble mailers, cellophane sleeves, shipping labels and backing card.
KICKSTARTER FEES: 10% of the fund goes towards Kickstarter as they charge every successful campaign a small fee for using their platform as well as transaction fees.
21 August 2019: Kickstarter Launches!

If the project is funded successfully, a survey will be sent to each backer upon the campaign’s completion within 3 days, allowing you to select the pin(s) of your choice from the unlocked pins. Please complete the survey by the stipulated deadline or your pins will be selected at random. Please also note that if you do not fill up the survey with shipping information, I will not be able to mail your Kickstarter rewards to you since there is no address provided :O
Each pin package will be sent out in a plastic bubble mailer / cardboard box depending on the quantity of pins. Shipping fees will be added on to any pledge you make.
Rewards will be shipped via SingPost and shipping fees are stated after selecting your reward tier.
Backers who pledge for a single pin will have their package mailed out as Normal Mail without tracking information to lower cost. (SGD$6)
All other packages of two or more pins will be mailed as a Registered Article with tracking information though depending on the overseas postal administration, it may be limited.
Any additional tax, fees or customs’ charges are the responsibility of the backer.
Lost packages: I will not be able to cover the cost in the case of lost packages for Normal Mail but if there are any issues with the delivery, do let me know.

You can see more pictures of my enamel pins and merchandise on my Instagram page and Etsy Store and feel free to drop me an email/message if you have any queries! (:
Risks and challenges
There remains the possibility of delays in production and shipping duration. However, I will ensure prompt communication with the manufacturer during the entire production process and since I have worked with the supplier before, the risks are minimal.
There might be slight variation in the color of pin and shape of the mold between the mockup and actual production but such changes will be minor. (Pantone colors may not display in the same manner on your display screen)
I will also personally scrutinize the quality of each and every pin prior to shipment to ensure that every backer receives their rewards in the best condition (:Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
