Cosmic Fields - Outer Space Inspired Enamel Pins

$4,078

Hello! My name is Sheila, and I’m a freelance graphic designer based in California. As an independent artist, I create products that feature my own original illustrations. I’ve designed stickers, enamel pins, keychains, and iron-on patches! You can find my illustrations and products here on my Etsy store or Instagram! To present, I have designed three enamel pins. But now I’d like to try and have some of my more ambitious designs produced!

 This Kickstarter’s base goal is my 2-piece enamel pin set: Solar Sailor // Lunar Mariner! These two pins are designed to fit like pieces of a ying-yang and feature sun and moon motifs. 

The pins in this set are 50mm wide, and 36-40mm tall, roughly 2 inches by 1.5 inches! I chose this size because it allows the designs' details to be highlighted nicely, while still being small enough to be pinned onto jackets, cardigans, hats, bags, etc. Both pins have two posts on the back (for better stability), and feature a custom back stamping. These two will be packaged together (see mockup photos) on backing cards featuring various constellations.

 There will also be a stretch goal to unlock a Day/Night color variant of these pins! If this colorway is unlocked, backers can choose which version they'd like to receive!

I've produced three other enamel pins in the past, as well as four iron-on patches, so I am very confident in being able to see the project through to completion. The manufacturer I will be working with helped to produce my last set of pins, and they do fantastic work. Generally, any delays that arise usually occur because of processing time at customs, or due to national holidays.

Every little bit helps! Even if you can't back this project, you can help spread the word! I'll be posting updates to my Instagram.

Risks and challenges

I have created pin designs in the past, and have experience working with the manufacturers that I have selected for this campaign.

Should any issues come up, such as delays or damaged batches of pins, I will work to resolve them and keep in touch with backers so that they are in the loop. (Updates will be posted here and on my Instagram.)
