Hello and welcome to my first kickstarter! Many of you probably know me as MistiousStar on social media. I'm a local artist striving to polish my art/craft and is always happy to share my love and passion of art, anime, video games, etc. For the next 21 days (campaign ends on September 14th 11:59PM PST) I'm running this campaign to fund something I've always wanted to bring to life.
Follow me on the above social medias!
These are Cardcaptor Sakura INSPIRED pins! Since I was a child I've watched Cardcaptor Sakura growing up and I've always wanted to own her staff, key, and the clow cards. That spark of magic, to this day, still fills me with inspiration to keep on creating. I hope together we can bring these hard enamel pin design to life so everyone who enjoys the anime/manga can wear them proudly on their jacket, bag, lanyards, etc.
All or nothing! Unless this campaign reaches it's initial goal of USD $350 you will not be charged! Meaning you can decrease, increase, or cancel the amount of your pledge at any time! On top of that the rewards are kickstarter exclusive prices at the highest quality.
My aims for this campaign are to unlock as many Pins as possible! The first goal is the Clow staff at USD $350.
The remaining pins will be Stretch Goals so if the design you are interested in is still locked, please consider continue to pledge to help unlock them (or help share this campaign and spread the word)
Pins will be priced at a Kickstarter special of $12 per pin. Early birds get them for $8 per pin! Once the pins hit the shop, they will be priced $15 per pin.
Original Prices: $15 per Pin
KickStarter Prices: $12 per Pin
EARLY BIRD Exclusive Prices: $8 per Pin *Limited to first week of launch or when tiers are sold out*
The pins are hard enamel (smooth finish) and are between 1in - 2.5in (specifics are provided below) with gold plating. They will come with my artist brand logo in the back of every pin (for authenticity), as well as 1-2 butterfly clutches (for extra security/hold)!
Once Campaign ends I will be opening up pre-orders on my store. So if you missed the campaign no worries, you can still grab the pins, just without the freebies and extra goodies!
*You will be sent a backer survey at the end of the campaign to specify your choices, add-ons, and freebies!
PIN MANUFACTURING: 75% of the funds will go towards the production of the pins. This includes the pins itself, butterfly pin clutches, and the shipment of pins to me.
PACKAGING & SHIPPING: 15% of the funds will go into packaging and shipping. This includes bubble mailers, cellophane sleeves/bags, shipping labels, and backing card.
KICKSTARTER FEES: 10% of the fund goes towards Kickstarter as they charge every successful campaign a small fee for using their platform as well as transaction fees.

Risks and challenges
There may be delays in production and shipping duration. However, I will ensure prompt communication with the manufacturer during the entire production process to minimize the possibility of error or delays.
There might be slight variation in the color of pin and shape of the mold between the mockup and actual production but such changes will be minor. (Pantone colors may not display in the same manner on your display screen)
I will also personally scrutinize the quality of each and every pin prior to shipment to ensure that every backer receives their rewards in the best condition. GRADE A enamel pins!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
