Hi! My name is Kay, I'm based in Scotland and love to collect enamel pins!
Princess Leia has always been someone I've looked up to, so I thought - why not design a pin for her? She comes in 3 different variants: silver, gold and murdered out. Murdered out is pretty limited so get in there if you want her!
About the pins:
- 1.5 inches tall
- will have rubber backers
- hard enamel
Currently, I have no stretch goals in mind, with this pin and its variants being the only target so far, but if funds are majorly surpassed I'll definitely get one drawn up! :D
- November-December - Kickstarter runs
- Late December - funds are taken, surveys are sent out and pins are put into production
- January - I receive pins, package them and send them out
- February - Pins are delivered to you!
This is giving me quite a lot of wiggle room, so if there are any complications they have time to be resolved.
Where the funding goes
- 10% - Kickstarter fees
- 15% - shipping fees
- 10% - packaging materials
- 65% - pin production
In addition, 30% of all pin sales after the Kickstarter is over will go towards The Midnight Mission, a charity which aims to help homeless men, women and children. It is a charity which Carrie Fisher herself supported.
Risks and challenges
The first time I tried to run a Kickstarter project, I was a lot less prepared. I've designed a much simpler pin this time with fewer stretch goals, so hopefully, manufacturing should run smoothly. If there are any problems, I'll let you all know right away!
I'll be working with The Fox Knows to make these pins!
