Beast Pins: Series 2 Custom enamel lapel pins based on vintage toys


Beast Pins: Series 2 Custom enamel lapel pins based on vintage toys

iCrowd Newswire - Jan 14, 2020

Story

Let’s do it again!  Thank you to everyone that made Series 1 a hit.  The first run successfully funded 200% of the original goal.  I can’t tell you how excited I am that there is such a strong community that shares my love of pins. 

Some info about the pins:

  • Beast and Weapon are both about 2″ tall
  • Soft enamel
  • Zinc alloy
  • Plating is black metal dye
  • 3 pin posts on back 
  • Each Beast pin comes with an accompanying Weapon pin

 So, what’s in store this time around? 

You see the FIVE new Beasts for Series 2, all selected based on fan suggestions! I had some fun with the variations – a few retro mashups! But for the following two, there was really only one way to go with variants…

Share the Campaign!

Sharing means just as much as pledging!

More exposure means more chances of pledges to achieve funding! 

Please feel free to post these graphics anywhere, including social media.

Pledge now, pay later.   

You won’t be charged until the end of the campaign, and only if the initial goal is funded.  I decided I didn’t want to make locked designs.  Instead, y’all can pledge at the outset for exactly what you want.  If we can gather enough support, we can make this happen!  That said, I do have some extra stretch goals (see below) over and above the core Series 2.

Risks and challenges

Pin may vary slightly after production if certain aspects cannot be achieved, however it will never be drastically different from my design. I have a high standard when it comes to quality and control as I hope you experienced from Series 1. Pins can take time to produce, around 4-6 weeks and then need shipping to me as well as back out to the customers so patience is required. There is always a risk of pins being defective, if this is the case for more than enough to send to backers, we would need to get replacements causing further delay in the pins reaching you. This is a very rare case and will be resolved timely.
