Intro

In a very magical part of the world, a bunch of wild creatures have turned into foodies! They are crazy about one culinary creation in particular... delicious buns 😋

These pins are my take on my some of my favorite creatures and foods. My childhood was filled with these video game adventures, and I just got back from a wonderful trip to Taipei and Shanghai, where I was amazed by the huge variety of bao (buns) that I devoured! And so the pokebuns were born—I hope you enjoy collecting these pins as much as I enjoyed making them 😊


Pin designs

I designed these pins independently as fan art, and they're meant to be a parody—they do not replace or represent any other existing products or merchandise!


Pin details

These pins will be gold plated, and will stand about 25-30mm tall, outfitted with comfy rubber backings. I'll also try to design cool backgrounds for the pins, as a special surprise! 😊

About me

Hi! My name is Katherine, and I'm a designer and doodler living in California. In the daytime I design digital experiences, and in the evening I love to draw and play ukulele 🤗 As an avid pin collector, it has been my dream for a while to make a full collection of pins!

In 2017 I ran a successful Kickstarter for a quarterly magazine about feelings and big questions. I'm super excited to share these pins with you—thank you for your support, and thank you for helping me bring the pokébuns to life!


Social media

You can find me on Instagram, where I spend a lot of time lurking and also posting art updates. I'm hoping to do some giveaways soon, so stay tuned! 🎶

I also have some enamel pins and other things on my Etsy store.

Risks and challenges

I'll try my best to send all the rewards out on time (or early!). I've made enamel pins before, and I will be working with a trusted pin company based in the UK to manufacture and make sure all the pokébuns are high quality! There might be small design changes during the production process to make sure the pins looks great, but I will notify you all ahead of time if that happens.
Should any errors occur during production, the manufacturer will re-make the pins, but there may be delays. If this happens, I will notify you as soon as possible and send you the unaffected pins first, or let you choose another design while the manufacturing error is being fixed.
Since the pins are hand-polished and filled and there may be a few flawed pins in every batch, I will be ordering extra to make sure you receive perfect pins. Any leftovers will be sold at a later time.
