Are you looking for a new Mothman enamel pin for your collection? Maybe you’re interested in a glow-in-the-dark, mischievous cat pin. Dungeons and Dragons? Ghouls and Goblins? Finally, you can get all of these pins and more in one place. BackerKit is thrilled to announce our first-ever Pintopia, launching Tuesday, January 17th!
What is Pintopia?
Pintopia is a multi-campaign, cooperative crowdfunding event by BackerKit — and you! It’s a celebration of creative collaboration where artists work together to bring you the best enamel pins around, and backers have the power to unlock exclusive designs.
We see crowdfunding as a massive multiplayer marketplace — it’s community driven. A creator’s vision stirs up backer enthusiasm, and together, they bring a new idea into the world. But that multiplayer, communal experience doesn’t have to stop with the collaboration between creator and backer. When creators team up, the success of one project can have a ripple effect that allows everyone to benefit.
During Pintopia, a series of enamel pin projects from a diverse group of creators will collectively launch on Crowdfunding by BackerKit. With all of the Pintopia projects launching simultaneously, backers will have a chance to discover projects they may not have otherwise found while creators can collaborate in ways that add even more value to their already exciting offerings. That means more creators launch successful campaigns and more cool things for all of us!
The Pintopia lineup is full of talented artists whose work encompasses so many different genres and concepts. From plants and cats to 90s nostalgia and skateboarding breakfast foods — there’s truly something for everyone. So head over to the Pintopia page today to check out the 21 projects that will be launching.
How does it work?
Pintopia runs from January 17th at 10 AM PST to February 7th at 1 PM PST. On January 17th, the projects on the Pintopia page will go live. This is your chance to explore and back the projects that catch your eye. But remember, the more projects you back, the more you earn.
If all of the projects get funded, all backers will receive a free Pintopia 2023 pin. Also, free collab pins will be revealed throughout Pintopia that you can snag by backing multiple projects.
