Hello! Welcome to The Enchanted Bakery, the cutest pâtisserie this side of Kickstarter! ❤
My name is Alexandra and I’m a small town girl with a love of whimsy, color, paper and magic. I also run a shop called Unicorn Paper Company which specializes in cute paper goods & enamel pins. Our last campaign was a big success -- I’m excited to share this new project with you!
This kickstarter combines two of my loves: the celebration of baking all things cute and the need to show off some mega cool flair!
Kickstarter backers are getting a discount by participating here first! (PLUS receiving any bonuses that may be unlocked along the way.) After the campaign, all enamel pins will be sold for a higher price in my Etsy shop!
Pledging helps to unlock designs! You can pledge for all the items you want, regardless of their locked/unlocked status -- I’m sure with everyone’s help we can unlock them all!
Pledge now Risk-Free and Pay later! You can always increase/decrease or even cancel your pledge at any time during the Kickstarter. You will only be charged when the Kickstarter campaigns ends provided we reach the initial $350 base goal. If we don't reach this base goal by the end of the the campaign date you will not be charged.
Each goal is set to cover the production cost, packaging costs and Kickstarter fees.
All of these enamel pins will be (unless noted otherwise):
If you are an early bird backer and you would like to add additional pins to your pledge:

NEW: You can now add this popular design from our shop to your order at a discounted rate!
Here is a selection of some of my past pin designs to give you an idea of what the final product quality will look like!
From sketch to negotiations with the manufacturers, I've seen these designs through the whole process. I pride myself in producing a quality product and providing excellent service. Care for some extra reassurance? Check out my A++ record and read some reviews at my Etsy shop.❤
This project is an ALL OR NOTHING project!
The Enchanted Bakery Kickstarter will run for 25 days and will end around late November.
Late November 2018 - Project Ends
The Kickstarter reward survey will be sent out to backers when the campaign is over and fully funded. It takes 15-20 days after the end of a successful campaign for the funds to be transferred from Kickstarter. Once the funds are in hand -- the pins will immediately be put into production.
**Please make sure address and pin selections are correct during your survey and reply back as soon as possible!**
Mid December 2018 - Production & Prep
Manufacturer will take up to 4-8 weeks on production time. Once the pins are finished it will take approximately 2 weeks for the pins to ship to me. Once I’ve received them they will be thoroughly inspected and then packaged cutely (see photos above!) for backers to enjoy.
Late January to Early February 2019 - Rewards Begin Shipping Out
Below is an approximate delivery schedule. These timelines may be sooner or later depending on your location and postal service provider.

It is encouraged to triple check the address used when you make your pledge to help minimize risks of packages getting lost.
All parcels within the United States will include a tracking number at no additional cost!
For international backers:
International parcels are shipped using a Global Advantage Program. This postage method is untracked in order to keep costs low for our international backers. I have yet to have a parcel go missing, but if you feel more comfortable and would like to add tracking to your pledge that is totally possible!
Please notify me through messages or email and I will tell you how much to add to your pledge in order to add tracking. Please understand that International backers are responsible for any customs fees their country may ask for, so be sure to plan accordingly!
This breakdown applies to every stretch goal up to $3,950. Adjustments to the percentages will be made if we surpass all our stretch goals!
To those who have pledged and even those who may not be able to please consider sharing this campaign everywhere you can! The more people we can reach the more likely we are to get funded.

Risks and challenges
Before opening Unicorn Paper Company, I worked as a senior designer for 7+ years specializing in merchandise design and production. I have lots of experience in knowing what steps need to be taken to have a smooth product development process.
The timeline has some give built into it just in case there are any hiccups during the manufacturing/shipping process. If there are any ‘seconds’ (or defected pins), I will contact the manufacturer promptly to get them replaced. If things appear to be going off-course in anyway, backers will get regular and honest updates of the situation. I strongly believe in an open flow of communication -- so please feel free to contact me at any time with any concerns or questions! I’m most available both on Instagram or by email (UnicornPaperCo@gmail.com)!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
