Hello there, both new and old friends! My name is Alexandra and I'm the owner and illustrator behind Unicorn Paper, a small stationery and accessory brand that believes in the magic of small joys! I want to welcome you to my 4th Kickstarter Campaign! I'm really happy and excited that you've dropped by ~ ♥!
One of my most favorite things is to imagine and create little collections full of wonder. This Kickstarter campaign is a celebration for the love between a human and their best friend familiars.
The Witch’s Familiar Pet Adoption Service is open to all witches and wizards who are ready to start their magical journey!
With 13 different species to choose from you can be sure to find the right partner or team to suit your ALL of your magical pursuits.
Each pledge will come with a certificate of adoption. You’ll be able to name your familiars and make it official with your signature and date~!
Kickstarter is crowdfunding platform. It's also a wonderful community of creatives hoping to take things from ideation to creation! Since Kickstarter is an "all-or-nothing" format it means that if a project doesn't get funded you will not be charged.
You can always pledge now risk-free and pay later! Increase, decrease or even cancel your pledge at any time during this Kickstarter. Pledging also helps to unlock designs and fun freebies during the campaign! You can pledge for all the items you want, regardless of their locked/unlocked status. ❤
You will only be charged when the Kickstarter campaign ends. If we don't reach our goal by the end of the campaign date you will not be charged. It's that simple! This campaign is set up to run for 27 days. The end date is listed at the top of the campaign along with the funding goal.
Kickstarter backers are also getting a discount by participating here first. (PLUS receiving any fun goodies that may be unlocked along the way.) After the campaign, all enamel pins will be sold for a higher price in my shop’s website!
If you ever have any questions about how this works, or about this campaign in general you are always welcome to contact me!
The initial funding goal is to cover the production of the first design -- with every other design unlocking in order as stretch goals!
Each pin ranges from 1.5"-1.75" Inches and may come with special details such as screen printing. They will all be in a gold finish and come with two pink rubber backings!
These additional stretch goals are thanks to the love and support of backer community! ♥ Additional designs may be added, so check back often!
One thing I love about Kickstarter is all the fun extras! Every backer will automatically receive a FREE 'Certificate of Adoption' and a 'Mini Art Thank you Print'!
Note: Extra 'Certificates of Adoption' are available as an add-on!
⭐ FREE matte vinyl sticker for all backers!
⭐ Any backer with 2 or more pins in their pledge will get the "Kiki's Hat" pin for FREE!
⭐ Any backer with 4 or more pins in their pledge will get the "Kiki's Hat" pin AND the "Kiki the Witch" pin for FREE!
Be sure to share this campaign with your friends and family so we can have more fun goodies to share!
Extra goodies are now available in this add-on section. This area is constantly updating so be sure to check back often!
To add these items to your pledge, add the correct amount to your pledge total for each additional item you would like to receive!
For example, if you pledged for $22 for x2 pins + $4 for shipping costs and you wanted to add 2 art prints ($12) your new total would be: $22 + $4 + $12 = $38.
Please be sure to read each add-on section carefully as the amounts and instructions will vary by item!
Want to add an additional pin to your pledge?
If you are an early bird backer and you would like to add additional pins to your pledge:
add $10 per pin to your current pledge total with shipping.
If you are not an early bird backer and would like to add additional pins, please change to a higher reward tier! (Manage your Pledge >> Change Your Pledge >> Select new reward tier)
To change your pledge amount, click the the "Manage Your Pledge" button (located at the top of the campaign page or by clicking your current reward tier). Then click the "Change your pledge" button. Add your add-on total to the current pledge amount and voilà!
This Kickstarter will run for 27 days and will end around early September. Below is an approximation of how the timelines should work.
Early September 2019 - 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 September 2019 - Production & Prep
Manufacturer will take up to 4-8 weeks on production time. Once the pins are finished it will take approximately 1 week 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.
Early to Mid October 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.
US/Canada: 1-2 weeks delivery
Europe: 2-4 weeks delivery
Australia: 2-5 weeks delivery
Everyone Else: 3-5 weeks delivery
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!
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.❤
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my campaign! Your support of my art in whatever form it takes -- means the world to me. Running this shop is a dream come true and it wouldn't be possible without you. You guys give me the opportunities to do what I am passionate about and create these little worlds of wonder.

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. This is also my 4th Kickstarter and I feel very confident in this project and meeting all the goals!
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
