Hey there! I'm Jenna, and my brand is Swish & Flick. I'm a graphic designer in California and as you can probably guess... I love Harry Potter! (I'm a Hufflepuff, in case you were wondering.) You can check out my shop here or find me on Instagram @swishandflickco. I am also on Etsy.
This is my fourth Kickstarter campaign! My first three campaigns were all funded, and I am super happy with the results! Feel free to check out my past campaigns here: Niffler Pins, Potion Pins, House Pride Pins. The theme of my fourth KS campaign is horcruxes! I find them quite fascinating. I have seen a few horcrux pins before, so for my designs I wanted to do something different. They are such dark objects, so for these pins I wanted them to look and feel dark, but also have elegance and beauty.
My ultimate goal here is to create all of the horcrux pins and the hallows pin. Each design funded will make 100 enamel pins. Each pin will have black rubber back clutches, and will come on a backing card and in a poly bag. I know the KS goal is set to $500, but that amount will only fund one pin. To get all of the pins funded, we need to raise $3000. There are also additional stretch goals available! Any funds raised above the goal will go into a larger order, as well as future pin designs that will be able to come out sooner with your help. Whichever pin designs get unlocked will get produced.
Once the campaign is over and all the Kickstarter rewards have been sent out to backers, any leftover pins will be available for purchase in my online shop. SO WHY PLEDGE NOW? There is never a guarantee that there will leftover pins of each design. If you pledge now, you're guaranteed to get the pins you want. PLUS, pledging through this campaign gives you the pins at a DISCOUNTED PRICE! AND you'll also receive free stickers if the stretch goals are unlocked! SWEET.
Backers will choose their pins from the funded designs through a survey at the end of the campaign. Surveys will be sent out a few weeks after the campaign ends.
New to Kickstarter?
For any of you that are not familiar with Kickstarter or how crowdfunding works, it is pretty simple. There is a funding period for a project (on average, it's 30 days). If the project reaches or surpasses its goal before these 30 days, great! If the project reaches 30 days and doesn't reach its goal, the project is unsuccessful, anyone who backed the project will not get charged anything, no one will receive any rewards, and everyone will be sad, lol.
If the project is successful, at the end of the funding period, Kickstarter sends out surveys to backers and collects the funds that everyone has pledged. (Please keep in mind that the money you pledge is not taken from you the moment you decide to support this Kickstarter campaign. You are only charged if the campaign is successful.)
To avoid shipping delays, everyone who backed the project should return their survey with their correct address and any other needed information as quickly as possible. Lastly, you get your rewards in the mail! WOO HOO!
*PLEASE NOTE* Designs may be subject to minor changes in the event that manufacturing issues occur.

Risks and challenges
I have experience with online selling, so I am confident I can deliver the products successfully. I have chosen an honest manufacturing company that I believe is suitable for producing my designs in a timely manner and with high quality standards. I also have experience with Kickstarter, as this is my fourth campaign.
Unfortunately, there can always be problems in manufacturing and shipping. I am expecting everything to run smoothly, but if there are any unexpected issues or delays in production, backers will get regular and honest updates of the situation.
Once the Kickstarter campaign has ended and I have received the funds, the production process will begin. I will update backers if there are any significant changes, especially if there are issues or delays with manufacturing or shipping. All designs may be subject to small changes, depending on manufacturing issues that could arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
