How does BackerKit crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding is a collaborative way to bring ideas and projects to life. Project creators post their idea for a project, and backers pledge money to make the project possible. Backers get behind the scenes access and backer-only rewards, which can include exclusive products, special pricing, creative input, content, and more.
To become a backer, select a pledge level that features the reward(s) you would like to receive when the project is successfully completed and make your contribution.
All-or-nothing crowdfunding model: The creator sets a funding goal and a deadline to raise funds. If the project does not meet the goal by the deadline, backers credit cards are not charged and no money changes hands.
Crowdfunding projects can happen at various stages of the creative process. Make sure to check the estimated timeline of when rewards will be delivered. Project creators will keep you updated on the progress toward completion and delivery of your rewards.
Backing a crowdfunding campaign is not the same as purchasing an item from a store. When you back a campaign you are supporting the creation of something new. Rewards are almost always delivered, but are not guaranteed.
Can I add add-ons in BackerKit?
Want to add add-ons now? Great! You can increase the amount of your pledge by the amount of the add-ons you wish to add in the pledge confirmation screen if you want to account for the funds now, or you can wait to add them and be charged later in the pledge manager after the campaign is over.
When will I be charged for my pledge?
Your payment method will not be charged right away. You will be charged for the amount of your pledge when the campaign ends and the project reaches its funding goal. You will not be charged if the campaign does not reach its funding goal.
What happens after the campaign is over?
The Creator will send out a survey that will ask you for more information about your pledge, your shipping information, additional items you may want to add to your pledge, and collect shipping fees if applicable.
The survey will be sent to the email address we have on file with your pledge.
Any additional payment will be charged when you complete your survey and confirm your order.
How much will shipping be?
Shipping will be calculated for your order after the campaign ends through your BackerKit survey. Most US based customers should expect shipping rates to be around $8-10. International backers should expect between $15-$25. These are estimated shipping costs and shipping rates may change between now and fulfilment.
What if I want more than one pin but not the full set?
Single pins are $28 each. You can increase your pledge using the Add-on screen after your initial pledge. You can also increase your pledge manually during the campaign to cover for additional pins that you can select in the survey at the end. Or you can pay for additional single pins through the BackerKit survey when the campaign is done! ♥
When can I choose my pin?
Surveys will be sent out shortly after the campaign is completed. You will be able to select your pin design(s) at that time and add on for any additional designs you might have missed.

What is Limited Edition for this set?
AmunetGFX & AdorkaBows pin collabs are built on a 'by demand' limited edition system. This means that when we create the pins we try to make sure every fan and collector who wants a pin gets one but once that initial demand is met, we don't make the pins again. Due to the process of manufacturing being imperfect we always order extra pins to be sure we have enough inventory to fulfill orders. This means that sometimes we have additional pins to sell after the orders are filled. However, once those surplus pins are gone, the edition is closed.
