Hello from all of us here at Tasty Peach Studios! We are very excited for our very first enamel pin Kickstarter!
What is Tasty Peach Studios? We are a sweet, unique boutique that sells adorable, indie merchandise inspired by Japan! Every character and design is made by our artist with love and care. We started off in 2007 in our Etsy shop crafting handmade clay charms and jewelry. Since then we have grown to become one of the leading Indie brands on the convention circuit, providing high quality metal jewelry, accessories, plush, apparel, and so much more!
So why Kickstarter? With the success of our first 2 Kickstarters, the Giant Meowchi Plush and Kekitsune & Friends Plush, we decided to launch this pin project in hopes to release many more series in the future! We have grown since our last 2 Kickstarters and wish to continue to do so with each campaign!
Kickstarter is a great way for us to gauge interest in metal pins, as well as a fantastic way to fund production costs for a project with many small designs. Enamel pins can add up very fast, especially with how many characters we have! So thank you in advance for your consideration to our campaign!
We design each character with a lot of love and fun! Our artist is always creating, and character creation is a personal favorite of hers! Below are the 8 characters from this project.
Concepting a character starts with something as simple as a thought - from eating a snack, a feeling from a song, or even a favorite color! Every character created has a life of it's own, and we hope that with this project we can bring even more characters to life in pin form!
There are a total of 6 main designs with 2 special designs. The special designs are unlockables as we go through the campaign. We also have a few more stretch goals on top of the 2 extra pins!
1.65 inches tall or wide.
- Two pin backing to keep them in place.
- Gold or Black metal in various designs.
- Hard enamel.
Same adorable designs with a little flare! These special glitter pins will be limited print versions. Thank you all that helped unlock them!
Pin production is MUCH faster than plush, so turn-around time for these will be very very fast! We estimate all pins will begin shipment this September, 2018!
- July - August : Kickstarter campaign
- August - September :Production ( estimated 3-5 weeks )
- September - October : Shipping to backers!
Shipping costs are a flat fee per area! $5.00 within the USA and $15.00 to the rest of the world, regardless of how many pins you order!
Prototypes are already in the process of being made! Once completed and sent for in hand approval, we will post them in the updates area! As we are getting in hand samples, this should keep issues to a minimum.
If issues with pins arise ( damages, incorrect color, mistakes on the manufacturers' part ) we will notify all backers immediately!
As we progress through the campaign, we have some fun stretch goals to unlock! Here are some of the things you can help us unlock for this Kickstarter!
More goals might be added as we unlock what is shown!
Kickstarter updates will be made through Kickstarter, however we have tons of fun posts on all our social media platform! Follow us on any or all of these for tons of art, info, videos, and more!
Risks and challenges
Tasty Peach Studios has been manufacturing, producing, shipping, and organizing large projects for the past 7 years now! We have our first 2 Kickstarters under our belt and have learned quite a bit from our experience!
From manufacturer delays and lost shipments, to damaged shipping containers and stolen merchandise, we've experienced most every problem and obstacle one could actually encounter in the manufacturing process. Over the years, we've solved these problems and moved forward successfully to be the top indie brand on the convention circuit today.
Each Kickstarter campaign we begin is a priority focus, so nothing will take priority over this project! Additionally, there is no outside company involved with the review and approval of this project. All we need is approval from you, our fans.
We strive to be extremely transparent with our fan base and pride ourselves on proper, consistent, & open communication with them if any problems arise. If there are any issues with this project, they will be messaged promptly to all backers so that they are aware of them in detail with the steps we are taking to correct them.
Thank you for reading our Kickstarter and we hope to be sending you a super cute pin for your collection soon!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
