About

About

Welcome to the Battle Ready Kickstarter, a collaboration between whimsyAly Creative, RYINRI, and Shhmiggles

At it's most basic form, the classic fantasy/adventurer's group usually consists of 3 types-- the heavy hitter who can take a lot of damage, the fast-paced and mobile attacker, and the mystical one who fights with magic or often supports the party through magical means.  

We wanted to explore these themes and each went with one of these types to bring you some fantastical pin designs that will aid you in whatever adventure you choose to go on.  whimsyAly took on the tank role, RYINRI in DPS, and Shhmiggles in Magic!

Timeline

The campaign will run from October 21, 2019 to November 10th, 2019 (11:59 pm!)

Once the campaign concludes, it can take 15-20 days for Kickstarter to process and transfer the funds.  During that time, we will be sending out backing surveys so you can tell us which pin(s) you want! Completing this promptly will help us accurately order pins and expedite the process.

Once the funds are available to us, we can immediately begin the manufacturing process, which usually takes 6-8 weeks.  We are leaning towards 8 weeks considering the time of year.  Upon receiving the pins from manufacturer, we will begin processing and shipping out orders, and shipping times from there depend on your regional mail carrier.

Please ensure your shipping address is correct, as this will also expedite delivery of your pins.

Funds Breakdown

Production designer by day, independent artist at night! RYINRI is an amateur artist with a love for collecting pins and a desire to design! She started tabling at a local event in the summer of 2018. Since then, she has occasionally showcased her work around the Seattle area. Her main source of merch comes from her fanart and original prints, but she is slowly adding pins to her catalog. Her art is inspired by flora, music, fantasy, and magic. When she isn’t drawing in drawing in her free time, she likes to play video games or go karaoke with friends!

Shhmiggles has been attending numerous art events for years! But it wasn't until 2018 that she finally got the balls to apply to different local artist events in the PNW. Thanks to all the wonderful, supportive artists, along with all her fellow geek girls and nerd boys she's able to find the courage to share her art, which consists of, but are not limited to, stickers, charms, postcards, and apparel. However, her favorite medium of art is wood. In her shop you can find little wooden stickers and pins, as well as, hand-painted or wood-burned wooden slices. In all those years of art hunting and appreciation, Shhmiggles has collected more pins than she has any right to have, so of course the next step is to design her own. Each pin is unique and holds a special place in her collection. She hopes that her pins will also find a special little place on your wall, or on your backpack, or even on that little pocket on your shirt that you never knew what to do with.

Aly of whimsyAly Creative has been designing and selling enamel pins since 2017.  She fell in love with enamel pins as an art form in 2016 when she discovered it as a way to support her favorite artists and meet new artists at the various conventions she attended and cosplayed at.  When her pin collecting obsession reached new levels, Aly knew it was time to make her own and hasn’t looked back.  Aly draws her inspiration from anime, games, and all things whimsical.  

Risks and challenges

As with all pin designs there is always a slight risk of delay due to manufacturing or a slight change in design. Enamel pins are goods that are made by hand even though the designs are sent to manufacturers. We are working with a manufacturer that Aly has used for all of her pins, and they have consistently delivered quality work with minimal delays.

All three of our artists have created enamel pins before and are familiar with the process, and Aly has co-created a successful Kickstarter in the past.

Product colors may vary slightly to digital renderings due to the nature of the process.

There is some flexibility built into our timeline to help offset any delays, and should anything come up you can expect immediate communication from us.
