About

Studio Ghibli Chibi-Style Character Enamel Pins

$9,878

232

Hello everyone!

I am hoping to make these cherished Studio Ghibli character designs transformed into enamel pins! I have always loved watching Studio Ghibli films growing up and always find something new to appreciate about the films as I get older as well. For this pin set, I am mainly going to be focusing on designing the human characters since there are many talented deigners who have made a large variety of the animal/non-human characters to choose from already such as Totoro, Jiji, No Face, etc. But if all potential goals are reached I may consider making some of the lesser created animal/non-human characters!

For participating in this campaign, you will receive a $1-$4 discount on each pin! Regular price for a 1.25" pin is $12, 1.5" is $13 and 1.75" is $14, but you will be getting them for $11 instead. If you'd like to guarantee these low prices, be sure to pledge before the funding period ends!

Sticker Rewards:

-Pins Pledged: 1-10

x5 Stickers of your choice

-Pins Pledged: 11-15

x7 Stickers of your choice

-Pins Pledged: 16-19

x10 Stickers of your choice

-Pins Pledged: 20-24

x24 Stickers of your choice

If you prefer not to have any stickers, there will be an option not to receive any as well.

The option to choose which stickers you would like will be available once the kickstarter ends. I will send out a survey to you which will allow you to let me know which ones you prefer! You can also choose less than your reward's amount if you so choose, just be sure to let me know in the survey.

I hope to be able to create 15 characters which are:

-Howl and Sophie from Howl's Moving Castle

Howl (unlocked): $200 & Sophie (unlocked): $400

-San and Ashitaka from Princess Mononoke

San (unlocked): $600 & Ashitaka (unlocked): $800

Each pin will be gold plated hard enamel pins. The pins will be in different sizes ranging from 1.25"-1.75" (32mm-38.5mm) depending on the actual size of the character in the film. Each pin will have one or two rubber clutches depending on the size. View the examples below to view what sizes there are and how many rubber clutches will be available to each one!

 

 

For now pricing will be correspondent to the regular price of a 1.25" pin ($12) versus a 1.5" pin costing $13 and a 1.75" costing $14, so be sure to grab your pin now to guarantee these low prices!

Here is the general break-down of what the funds from this Kickstarter will go towards in helping my make these pins come to life!

 

Production Breakdown:

Short & Sweet:

Early March: Kickstarter begins

Late March: Kickstarter ends

April: Production begins

April-May: Pins are shipped out

Detailed explanation:

-There will be a 28 funding period for this Kickstarter campaign

-Once funding has finished, there is an estimated 14 day waiting period for me to receive the funds. Which equals a total of a (28 day funding period and a 14 day receiving of funds) 42 day waiting period to actually place my enamel pin order through my manufacturer.

-I will process my enamel pin order through my manufacturer where they will turn my designs into physical enamel pins. During this time frame, possible adjustments may need to be made resulting in a later production end date. Production time may take up to 10-16 days to complete.

-After the pins are finally finished and are ready to go, the manufacturer will ship the pins which can take up to 4-7 days or longer depending on specific circumstances.

-After the pins are shipped to me, I will prepare your pin orders which can take 1-5 days depending on the quantity of orders I receive.

-After I am done preparing for shipment, I will ship the pins to you. Shipment time varies between each location. Within the US it can take 3-15 days, and outside of the US it may take 7-20 days to receive.

The estimated time to create and have these shipped out can be between 2-3 months, which means you may either receive them in April-May!

Thank you for considering participating in my Kickstarter campaign! I always am so appreciative all the support I get from all of you! <3 I hope you are excited about this pin set as much as I am! Let's work together into making these become a responsibility!

Please share these pins to your friends and to anyone who would really enjoy this pin set. You can keep up to date with me on on these platforms! I will also include my shop as well!~

Risks and challenges

I have made enamel pins before and am confident in saying that the process of making these should go smoothly. The only potential risks that can come up would be the possibility of there being lower grade pins in comparison to the amount of orders that are accumulated, and slow shipment. However I will work my best to avoid these potential issues.
