About

Hey,

My name is Liz and I'm a photographer, but more recently, I've started drawing and designing pins and stickers. 

I spent years building my photography brand, but now I'm building the Snarky Co. brand. 

So why create a brand based off the word Snarky? Because I was always the kid that was sarcastic, witty, and full of opinions and attitude. This project was born when I sat thinking about how much I dislike the phrase "Act like a Lady". I never could understand that phrase, because it's dumb, and it's sexist, and every time I heard that phrase, I defiantly did everything to not be consider a "lady" (whatever that even means). 

So I created a line of hard enamel pins that are snarky, cheeky, and sufficient for all your tongue-in-cheek moments. 

This Kickstarter currently has two (2) pins unlocked and available for a backer to choose. The pins will first be sold at an early bird price of $8 per pin, however, there are a limited quantity of early bird spots. When the early bird spots are gone, each pin will sell for $10 each, but as you'll see, if you purchase more than one pin at a time, you'll get a Kickstarter exclusive price that is lower. (for example: two (2) pins for $18)

All of the pins will be (unless noted otherwise):

  • Silver Plated Metal
  • Hard Enamel
  • Come with rubber backs
  • Come with a backing card

Rose Gold Variants - All Unlocked!

The Snarky Co. brand is really keen on the colors rose gold and black. We've made each of the first designs in a black and rose gold variant. In terms of size, these pins are the same as the color versions. 

The Skull, It's Not Me, and Do No Harm are all rose gold plated, with black enamel, and sections of black enamel with holographic glitter. 

The Cheeky pin is black metal with a peachy rose gold glitter. 

The black and rose gold variants will unlock at $1500 and can be chosen as one of your pin options. 

New Stretch Goals Added!

 The First Freebie Goal is Unlocked!

This pin is a Kickstarter Exclusive, meaning if you pledged during the original live campaign, you will receive one of these free with your pledge level. This pin will be available in the add-ons section of your survey and our pre-order store for $10. 

All New Stretch Goals!

 Second Freebie Stretch Goal is now Unlocked!

Freebie Stretch Goal #3

 So far two freebie goals have been unlocked. This mean every order will come with two free items. Since the campaign keeps growing, we're adding one last freebie goal that unlocks at $10,000.

Each pin will come with it's own premium backing card. 

The Sticker Pack

There are a few tiers that come with the sticker pack, but you will also have the opportunity to purchase the sticker pack separately for $6 in the add-ons section of your survey.  

The sticker pack comes with three exclusive stickers that are based off of the pin designs. There is one (1) skull sticker, one (1) heart sticker, and one (1) snarky logo sticker in each pack. Below are examples of the stickers. These stickers will be in the same colors as the pins, but they will have a holographic overlay, which means they'll reflect a rainbow in the light. Each sticker is roughly 4" high, with the logo sticker being 4" wide. 

During the Kickstarter campaign you can pledge a monetary amount in any of the pledge levels. Your money won't be withdrawn from your payment method until the end of the campaign. Funds will also only be collected if we meet our goal. 

After the campaign ends, your funds will be drawn from Kickstarter, and then you will be sent a survey to pick out your rewards and add your shipping info. We will be using a pledge manager called BackerKit to send out surveys. There will also be an add-ons section to your survey, where you can add on extra items, such as sticker packs, locking metal backs, t-shirts, or additional pins. Payment details will be collected in your survey to pay for any last minute added items. 

Once the funds have been released from Kickstarter I can start production!

Please Note: 

Once orders have been locked down we have a no refund or return policy. After orders are locked and funds are secured, production orders will be placed and paid for. The amount of funds determines the quantities that we need to fulfill this campaign. We will only offer refunds for extenuating circumstances or if you rewards were damaged in transit. 

Shipping for your pledge level will be collected on Kickstarter during the campaign. This project is only shipping to the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom

If there is another country you'd like us to consider shipping to, please contact us directly. We will attempt to see if we can arrange to ship to your country. Shipping fees for other countries have not yet been determined, but when you contact us we will give you an estimate. 

Pledge Level Shipping is a fixed rate, with the exception of the sticker pack only level. 

United States: $4

Canada: $9

United Kingdom: $10

We haven't yet decided on which shipping carriers we will use. 

If you choose to purchase extra items in the add-ons section of your survey there may be added shipping fees. Any extra shipping fees are based on the weight of your package, for example, adding a sticker pack has no additional shipping fee, but adding another four pins may have a shipping fee. 

When shipping internationally we will make every effort to properly fill out customs forms. We will abide by your countries customs and shipping laws, which means we will denote the package value as the cost of your order. We are not responsible if your country holds your package and requires extra payment to release it. 

Below you can find the estimated timeline for this project, as well as the funds breakdown. 

  • September – Kickstarter Campaign Begins
  • October – Kickstarter Campaign Ends and funds are collected
  • October – Surveys are sent out
  • October/November – The pre-order store is open
  • November – Orders are locked down and sent to the manufacturer
  • February 2019 – Shipping of rewards begins (the reason rewards will not ship until February is because it takes several weeks to manufacture a pin, as well as the fact that the process will slow down in December because of the holidays) If all materials are produced earlier than February we will of course begin to ship in January.

Risks and challenges

Though I have a background in Art, this is my first time designing enamel pins. I've spent countless hours researching how to design pins and manufacture them. Even though this is my first time designing enamel pins, I've designed stickers, art prints, photoshoots, and I've even run a crowdfunding campaign in the past.

I've chosen the manufacturers I'll be using after a thorough vetting process that included trusted reviews, recommendations from colleagues, as well as seeing the finished products in person.

I will always be upfront with backers along the way. I will disclose any setbacks, delays, changes in product, and any other pertinent updates.

It's important to understand that this is a crowdfunded campaign. Crowdfunded campaigns are often subject to delays due to unforeseen circumstances. Please also understand that money pledged to a crowdfunded campaign is a donation or investment. This is not an online store and you will not immediately receive the rewards you pledged towards.

Please note that minor changes may occur in production, and that the images presented here are my mock up designs. There is a possibility of slight changes in color and size, but I don't foresee any major issues.
