The Tabletop Talisman is a line of stylish, geek-friendly jewelry and accessories that make perfect gifts for any tabletop fan. Modeled after the iconic meeple, these pendants are made from solid 6063 aluminum and are anodized in vibrant colors with a beautiful, brushed finish.

When we were looking at existing geeky jewelry, what we found was that there were a lot of options for meeples made from wood, zinc, ceramic or plastics but very few people that produce tabletop themed jewelry in metals. 

We wanted to provide the community with a metal jewelry option for a number of reasons. Having worked with anodized aluminum in other projects, we know that it's lightweight, meaning comfortable to wear all day and durable, resistant to denting and chipping. We believe that it also provides a much more vibrant finish for the pendants than wood, ceramic, zinc or plastics. 

Finally, because all of the meeples are precision engineered, they are going to be consistently shaped and sized, whether they are on your earrings, necklace, keychain or bracelet.

Before the campaign, we ordered a small production run to make sure we could bring our vision of The Tabletop Talisman to life. We’ve already received and reviewed these samples and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the results! In order to offer these an affordable price, we need to commit to a much larger production run. With your help, we can make the Tabletop Talisman a reality! 


We think the Tabletop Talisman is the perfect holiday gift! Since we first came up with these gorgeous, affordable, geeky accessories, we’ve been trying to figure out how we can offer reliable holiday shipping.

The sample print run was perfect; they’ll be exactly the same as the final production run. The only difference is that they available now and ready for the holidays!

We are, however, limited to what we’ve already have on-hand. To try to accommodate everyone, we’ll be taking color preference requests (but cannot guarantee specific colors) for our holiday orders.

In order to ensure your order arrives by Christmas, Holiday Delivery backers must complete their BackerKit survey within 72 hours of receiving it. We’re only able to offer this option to our United States backers. Add-ons to these pledges will be shipped in the main round of fulfillment and incur an additional $5 shipping charge.

 

Risks and challenges

We’ve run a few successful Kickstarters in the past and have run into our fair share of challenges. Our biggest obstacle had previously been receiving something referred to in the industry as a “golden sample”. This is when a manufacturer provides you with an excellent prototype and their actual production run does not match the same quality. In order to combat that obstacle, this time instead of asking our manufacturer for a handful of prototypes, we actually ordered a small production run. This way we could ensure that the quality of our product was going to be consistent over a larger volume.

Special Considerations for Holiday Shipping Risks and Challenges

We know that the biggest risk with holiday delivery is getting the jewelry to you on time! We're using the short production run to fulfill our holiday delivery orders and we're requiring responses within 72 hours of the surveys going out. This should allow us enough time to package and ship everything with enough time for the delivery service to get these items to where they need to be. And due to this tight shipping deadline, we are only offering this option to backers in the United States.
