I LOVE all things Harry Potter and I love enamel pins, so I thought why not create my own Harry Potter enamel pins?! Each pin will be made from hard enamel and the pins will vary from 30-38mm in size.
I really hope we can unlock the first pin, as that'll mean it's going into production! The remaining 4 pins are stretch goals, so the more we unlock the more pins available to choose from! I would LOVE for them all to be unlocked so any pledges and/or shares would mean THE WORLD to me!!
So as I said before, the first pin is the 'main' goal. If we hit £300 the first pin will be unlocked and will be going into production. *Cue happy dance!!* The first one to be unlocked is a cute Wizarding sports pin measuring at 30mm tall and wide and is high polish bronze plated.
The second pin unlocks at £520 and if we hit that it means both pins are going into production.
You don't need earmuffs to own this little Mandrake! This cutie will measure at 38mm tall and will be black nickel plated.
The third pin unlocks at £740 so if we reach it that means THREE pins will be going into production!!
Is the third Harry Potter film anyone elses favourite?! This purple night bus pin will measure at 38mm wide and will be high polish bronze plated.
The fourth pin unlocks at £960, so if we reach this that means FOUR pins will be unlocked!
Who doesn't love Dobby?! Who knew a sock would be all it took to free him... This round pin will measure 30mm tall and wide and will be high polish bronze plated.
The fifth and final pin unlocks at £1180, so if we reach this goal we would have unlocked ALL FIVE PINS! How amazing would that be?!
Now I know it's not good to lie, but having it scratched into your hand as punishment...? Bit extreme right?! *Anyone else hate Dolores Umbridge more than Voldermort...?? This pin measures at 38mm wide and is black nickel plated.
There we go! There's all the pins! I would absolutely love to unlock all of them, as not only would it be bloomin' amazing, it means there's more pins to choose from if you pledge for more than one pin! So any pledge, big or small, will mean the absolute world to me and I'll do a happy dance for each one!
This kickstarter will run for 30 days, so that's 30 days to try and unlock as many pins as possible. Once the kickstarter has finished, if we have unlocked any pins the funds for your pledge will be taken out of your account. This can take up to 2 weeks to reach me (all depending on if there are any issues retrieving the money for the pledges). Whilst this is happening I will be contacting everyone who has made a pledge to find out which pin/s you would like. Once I have received the money I can send the pins off to production! Once I've sent the designs off it takes approx 4-6 weeks for the pins to be made and posted to me. As soon as I receive the pins I will package them all up and send them off to their owners straight away.
So to put it more simply, from the end of the kickstarter (when money is taken from your account) to the pin/s being in your hands I estimate it'll take about 6-8 weeks (fingers crossed it'll be as quick as possible!). This should be around the middle to end of November. *Perfect time if you want to treat some friends or family to pins for Christmas!
Of course production and delivery times are out of my hands but I'll do everything to make sure the pins are with you as soon as possible.
There are a number of tiers you can chose from when pledging. Each tier has a quick description of what you'll receive. For example you can choose between having just one pin, or 5 pins!
Some tiers are named as an 'early bird' tier, which simply means as being one of the first people to pledge you get the pin/s at a lower price! So you'll need to get in there quick! If the early bird price has gone for the tier you were looking at, I'm sorry!! You can have a peek and see if there are any more early bird prices left for other tiers, but if not, I'd really love it if you still pledged at the standard price, as you'll still have the excitement of knowing you'll be one of the first to get these new pins! <3
The GREAT thing about pledging is that no money comes out of your account until the kickstarter is finished! This means you are able to change your pledge at any time whilst the kickstarter is live. So if you fancy upping your pledge to the next tier, you can!
(If none of the pins are unlocked no money is taken from your account) Sad face! :(
All pins will be packaged as carefully as possible. For UK pledges packages will be sent out via 1st class Royal Mail with proof of postage. For international pledges they'll be sent via standard international delivery.
Thanks so much and I want to say a huge THANK YOU to those who make a pledge. You have no idea what it means to me!!
Risks and challenges
Risks are low, however delays in production and posting are out of my control. If there are any delays I will keep you informed. Once funds have been received and I send the design off for production there is the very slight chance they ask for tweaks in the design. If this is the case I will keep the design true to the original as possible. This is so the design is psychically possible to be made into an enamel pin.
In the slight chance some pins come to me imperfect I might have to wait for replacement pins, which would delay the process. This is something I will keep you updated with.
If you have pledged for multiple pins but not enough pins were unlocked this means you will get multiple of the same pin of your choice out of the unlocked pins. This means you will have spare to give for gifts (Christmas will soon be approaching!).
