Risks and challenges

We are a full-time shop, and this is our second enamel pin project. We have extensive experience with working with factories, distributors, and shipping, and previous experience with the challenges of doing so within the Kickstarter framework. A lot of research went into choosing our manufacturer, based on US production, previous products, and responsiveness. We'll be reviewing samples of all pin designs before mass production to ensure that the mold and Pantone colors meet our standards and your expectations. (Don't worry, there will be update pictures for backers!) If we run into any production issues or delays, we'll work with the factory to ensure a quality end result.

Production needs may change design elements slightly, but we don't foresee much need for that since we've been working closely with our production company on proofs. If anything changes, we'll keep everyone in the loop!
