How long do they last?

Sassies are like clothes... they last as long as you take care of them. 

You'll be surprised by the longevity if you keep them them dry and store them in the book. Many of our testers have worn the same pair of paper earrings dozens of times and they're just getting started!

But longevity isn't the point! These earrings are for having fun and living in the moment. Consider it an accomplishment if they fly off your ears while riding a moped or dissolve into a rushing waterfall. All earrings are 100% recyclable. 

All hardware is made of plated brass and tested free of nickel and heavy metals. Hooks can be reused between earrings.

About Super Sassy

Super Sassy is a project of Cassidy Clawson, who invented the Pop Out Earring concept (by accident, while working on a paper hat) in 2016. Cassidy is a designer and illustrator that loves making surprising products that facilitate fun, laughter and connection. 

Cassidy is supported by a team of fun-loving-illustrators, fancy-camera-having-photographers, hook-making-engineers, been-to-China-before-manufacturing-experts, and ... last-but-not-least... stylist-host-comedian-triple-threat Katy McConroy!  

Free Gift Wrap

The Book of Pop Out Earrings is possibly the best gift ever. That's why we include free gift wrap at every pledge level. You'll have the opportunity to request gift wrap when we collect your information after our campaign. 

The Book of Pop Out Earrings contains small parts, which pose a choking hazard to young children. The product is is recommended for people age 8 to 88.

Risks and challenges

This isn't our first rodeo. Before developing The Book of Pop Out Earrings, Cassidy successfully designed, manufactured and sold thousands of sheets of paper earrings.

Still, this is a more complicated product and we can’t foresee every problem we may face. But we’re confident we will overcome our challenges and deliver an amazing product to our backers. Like many projects on Kickstarter, our biggest risk is delays caused by unforeseen challenges during the manufacturing process.

Product Manufacturing
• We've engaged an experienced manufacturer of children's "board books", which share many print, cutting and assembly processes with our product.
• Our manufacturer has produced multiple rounds of prototypes, and finalized our manufacturing processes. The book and earring samples are absolutely beautiful and meet our standards for quality.
• We've already manufactured our proprietary "snap hook". The clip on hook is designed, prototyped, and ready for production by an experienced jewelry manufacturer.

Shipping
• As soon as we receive The Book of Pop Out Earrings, we have a team in San Francisco that will ship the product to our backers. We guarantee that our Kickstarter backers will be the first to receive The Book of Pop Out Earrings.
