 Rar! (Means hello in dino...)

Hey, I'm Kim from Totem & Arrow -  I'm a Designer-Maker/Illustrator from Aberdeen, Scotland... currently living in Cambridge. 

I'm a dino fan girl, pug mum (my pug Peanut also love dinosaurs), colour lover and pin collector. 

I want to bring my Dapper Dinosaurs to life in enamel pin form. 

Rexy the rather fabulous Tyrannosaurus Rex is the first goal for this Dapper Dinosaurs project.

Dapper Rexy

  • 35mm hard enamel pin
  • Silver metal
  • Pink rubber clutch back
  • Dapper dino backing card

I'm also wanting to make jewellery, stationery and apparel with my dino designs. 

So hopefully you guys can help this kickstarter get the dino train roaring.

Because you're a Dino loving kinda gal, a pin collecting, t-shirt wearing necklace flaunting ext'RAR'dinaire!

And you get all the pins, t-shirts, totebags, necklaces and goodie bags at a special pledger price, as a little extra thank you for being amazing and help funding the Dapper Dinos.

Once/if the campaign is funded you get the rewards first, if there is enough pins left i'll pop them into my shop but at a higher retail price.

Or maybe you just want to support me as an artist - that's also super cool and I'll love you forever, because making these 'products' is sharing a little bit of my soul and it's always nice to be liked and enjoyed.

I've made a handy little timeline below for you to illustrate how this campaign will progress and when you can expect your Dino goodies.

I hope to be sending out pins in June - but i've popped the start of July in the timeline for a little bit of wiggle room. I'll get your pledges off to you as humanly* possible

*I'll get Peanut my pug and his dino Tilly to help pack all the rewards ;)

 Send me that Sweet, sweet dino mail

Below is a little table to show the shipping lead times once i've popped to the post office on Rexy 

 Standard international mail usually only takes around 5 business days to arrive but can be held up in Customs, so please allow a bit more time for your parcel to get to you. Any customs fees due are paid by the pledger.

Here's the Pins from my Previous Kickstarter 'Unicone Ice Cream Pins' 

You can see the high quality of them and the custom backing cards I made for the pins.

 You can buy these pins through my Etsy shop - click on the pic above to have a look at my store.

I've also got some Pug enamel pin designs inspired by my Pug Peanut - Click the pic if you'd like to buy one.

If you like what you see here there's plenty more over on my social media pages come join me, grab a cuppa and say hello.

And a Jurassic thank you from me, you wonderful humans.

Risks and challenges

The fun part...T's and c's ;)
If my project is successfully funded (i'll do a happy dance) and after the funds have been sent to me via kickstarter (takes 2-3 weeks) the pins will go into production. This should take 4-6 weeks for production time and shipping the pins out to me.
My manufacturer is awesome and the pin quality is just fabulous, however if there are any unforeseen issues or problems with the pins that cause a delay I will communicate this with you lovely backers and give you all updated information as I get it.

and If my project is unsuccessful - don't worry because nothing happens.. you won't be charged and I won't do a happy dance... sad times...
But! I'm hoping there's enough Dino-fans out there that this will not be the outcome :)
