UPDATE 1/25: We have unlocked a FREE ENAMEL pin for EVERYONE who pledges! Congrats! Each pledge comes with an enamel pin, the bag in the style/color of your choice, and the matching 2.5-3" charm. That's $62 worth of items for $35-- Thank you again for the support!
Welcome to my Kickstarter! My name is Rose, and I run a small, online shop called Rozarria! I specialize in enamel pins and ita bags and have self-produced 4 different designs of backpacks, but I need your help for my newest project! I cannot afford to make these on my own while paying rent and living in Seattle, Washington, so I'm putting together this collaborative Kickstarter with the help of friends to raise money for these products.
I am releasing two different bags in a variety of colors: a shoulder bag and a fanny pack! I have samples completed for the black colors of both bags minus the star charms that will be attached! (Please see photos below.) I worked with talented artist to create charms that will be included with each bag.
Early bird pledges will receive a small, free enamel pin that matches :)
IronYokai designed the charm for the black series of bags.
Shiroiroom designed the charm for the pink and lavender series.
AlisaVysochina designed the charm for the mint and blue bags.
Please make sure to check out their social media and to support them because their artwork is amazing and I treasure and value them so much!
The first goal will let me create those bags in black in addition to the first charm!
UNLOCKED! If we hit the first goal then at $4,400 the pink fanny pack will unlock and at $5,350 we will unlock the lavender shoulder bag! A mock-up of the pink fanny pack is below and a Swatch of the lavender for the shoulder bag is next to it! Each bag will come with the sweet charm.
UNLOCKED! If we hit the second goal then at $7,000 we will unlock the mint fanny pack and at $8,000 we will unlock the blue shoulder bag! Each bag will come with the cute charm!
NEW STRETCH GOALS:
UNLOCKED! At $8,500 I will be making a free enamel pin for all backers to have as a thank you! Because there are over 200 bags being pledged for, I need the goal a bit higher since I'll have to make over 100 pins and I also want to make it a really cool design with heavy detail so those cost a bit more. I will also be making a free vinyl sticker for everyone at $9,000.
There are still two weeks left on the campaign so I'm hopeful we can also look into unlocking more color bags. At $11,000 I will be releasing another color fanny pack or shoulder bag, I'll be putting up polls to vote on instagram closer to the time. Note: If we have a lot of pledges for the black bag I may need to order double the amount vs doing an additional color. There's simply no way I can fund them out of pocket, and I like to prepare for a 10% defect rate. We will have 6 colors unlocked total no matter what, but I still have to order 100 of each regardless if a color has 20 pledges or 98. Thank you for understanding!
If you would like to pledge for multiple bags just add $35 to your pledge for each additional bag unless you're purchasing combo packs, then add $60. basically, if you're getting two fanny packs you would do the first reward x2, if you're getting two shoulder bags you would do the first reward x2, if you're getting two of each you would do the second reward x2 :) there's a small price break for getting one of each because they are intended as sets. Feel free to mix and match colors!
ESTIMATE OF MANUFACTURING:
Jan 19-Feb8: Kickstarter runs
Feb9-Feb22: Wait for Ks funds!
Feb 22-Mar12: Three weeks of manufacturing time estimated by the company! I will packaged and ship in the week upon arrival, so they should arrive in March. If there are any delays it will be April at the latest!
Thank you so so much, I'm so excited to do this project and I can't wait to make these bags come to life!!
Risks and challenges
Risks and challenges are delays in manufacturing! While I am confident in this company's ability to be prompt and deliver, as I have used them to design all my other bags, quality comes first so if the date gets pushed back due to quality control issues, I will put the time it takes to make a perfect product first.
I have created six other KS projects the past 2 years and all were delivered successfully.
In an effort to be fully transparent, I wanted to share that for the past few months for my online store had experienced some shipping delays due to various reasons (my mother being in the hospital, me traveling to take care of her, and similar unforeseen circumstances), so I'm working with a group of friends to make sure everything gets shipped out timely when they arrive!
