Welcome to Paleo Pals® newest Kickstarter, Primordial Pins!
After two successful Kickstarters, we are back with some new renditions of our favorite prehistoric creatures in 3-inch JUMBO-SIZED high quality enamel pins! Partnering with amazing artist Monarobot, who makes monsters inspired in Maya culture, aesthetic and mythology, we have created 4 unique designs that you can carry with you on your flannel shirt!
What On Earth Am I?
Anomalocaris canadensis: first described in 1892 by British-Canadian paleontologist Joseph Frederick Whiteaves. Growing between 1 and 3 feet long, this intriguing relative of arthropods hails from the Cambrian period, about 508 million years ago.
Why Do Peculiar Fossils Matter?
Dinosaurs have a special place in the hearts of every five-year-old; inspiring imagination, awe, and wonder. But these perceived “dragons” of the past are so poorly represented in Hollywood blockbusters, that they are portrayed as something they are not. Due to the “monster image” that is deeply ingrained in our culture, it is clear that public understanding of these animals is fundamentally stained. It is time to introduce the world to the remarkable science of PALEONTOLOGY!
Where better to start than by encouraging science education with amazing unheard-of fossil creatures?
Risks and challenges
We have 4 years of experience innovating products through Kickstarter. After taking plush toys, enamel pins, and a wide range of other products to production, we have learned a lot about manufacturing and customer satisfaction. With a single-step production, manufacturing will run smoothly compared to our plush toys.
- We will be producing our pins through a single factory based in China with design offices in California!
- Our stickers will be produced in a single factory in the USA
- Our products should be ready to ship within 1 to 4 months from the end of the Kickstarter!
- With the international price of metal potentially going up this could cause some production delays.
- There is a very real risk to production timeline as trade becomes less and less friendly between the USA and the international community, this could cause unexpected costs and delays.
