Project Update: Pintopia Update: pin samples are underway!

Got some good news today! All the art for the pin samples has been prepped by my supplier(the first step before they make the molds) and aside from a few color adjustments everything is looking fantastic. Thankfully all my worrying about the details being preserved at these sizes was unnecessary! 

SO many pins!!

I find the pins with UV print details especially interesting. Very cool how all these layers come together to form the final product! The precision necessary to make them happen really blows my mind.





I also received pictures of the updated sweet dreams button-up sample! Stitched together Nightmare Were is gone now and we have the seamless tile I was hoping for.



Now before I go I want to draw attention to a backerkit project being launched later this year by my pal and collab partner Charmsey! Circus Sweeties is a huge labor of love some months in the making and it would mean the world to both Charmsey and I if you follow and share her babies ahead of their launch in the Fall 💖



Snughouls and Circus Sweeties will be teaming up to bring you some awesome collab items too, so following us both will ensure you don't miss a single surprise!

Project Update: Pins ordered - finally!

Hey monster lovers!

Last week the manufacturer finally sent me pictures of the completed samples of Dante, Silas, and Sebastian, and I'm very happy with how they turned out!


I was waiting until I got those samples back until I put in the full pin order, so now that that's been done, the pins have FINALLY been ordered! I do apologize that it took so long for that to happen, usually this supplier is a bit quicker but at least now things are moving along!

I've also put in the order for the postcard set which should be done by the end of the week, so now, as far as I know, everything is either in production or already complete and in-hand. It's just a matter of waiting for the pins now.

I also never had a chance to take better pictures of the holographic stickers, so here, have this quick phone picture I took instead! I think they turned out AWESOME.



Lifemoving/ update

As I mentioned in one of the previous updates, my husband and I have (somewhat suddenly) decided to move across states. Our current move in date is next month on July 8th/9th. The enamel pins are being sent to our new address, so once they arrive I should be able to get right to grading them. 

However, because it's such a big, jarring life change and we will need some time to settle in and get things unpacked and organized, I ask that you guys be patient with me in the case that our move causes any other delays in the fulfillment timeline. I don't expect anything major. I thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation!

Anyway, I think that's it for this update! Have a great week! :)

Project Update: Finally, the samples are done and they were WORTH the wait!!

I apologize for the silence but hello!! I'm SO thrilled to come to you today with news. They have finalized my samples and we are ready to go into full production! Here are some videos and photos that I got yesterday so you can see how beautiful the stained glass/gradient effects turned out.







I still plan to make the muslin moth a stained glass pin as well but it wont require a gradient effect on the wings which means I don't need to wait to sample it, it can go ahead into production.

Some more updates ~

We got in the finished pin banners!





Also~ I know it doesn't really pertain to this campaign but I finalized the plushie for the lunar dragonpillar baby! he is very friend-shaped and can sit on his little butt -- isn't he sooo cute? ;u; I just received this final sample today!





If you haven't yet, please finalize your surveys as I am collecting all my numbers and making my big bulk orders before the end of this week. 




Seeing as the samples took a few months to work out, I expect this project will be taking a little while for production. I absolutely appreciate your patience as pins are mostly hand-made and my factory is really good about quality. I hope these photos show how amazing the pins will be!! I'm just as excited as you are to have them in my hands!

I do understand it's not easy to back a project and there be long stretches of no news so always feel free to email me at any time if you have questions at [email protected].

Project Update: Project Update: Progress and Heartfelt Thanks


Hi my friends!!

I hope this message finds you well, and you're off to a great week. I apologize for my absence and lack of updates recently. I want to assure you that things are moving forward, and those long-awaited surveys are on their way!!

Over the past few months, I have been fighting through some significant health challenges that got quite serious. I've been in and out of the hospital, urgent care, and numerous appointments with specialists and doctors. I've experienced severe medical trauma and have had to advocate for myself while navigating the complexities of chronic illness, while being in a significant amount of pain. It has been incredibly taxing to say the least, both physically and mentally and I needed time in the dark so to speak. 

I know this has affected my ability to communicate with you and keep you updated, and for that, I am truly sorry. Please understand that I never intended to go silent. I was simply overwhelmed by these circumstances and trying my best to cope. 

The good news is that progress is being made! I've already sent designs off to my manufactures as well as submitted the surveys and preorder shop to BackerKit and I am just waiting on their approval!

Next steps:

  1. Approval from BackerKit: Once I receive approval from BackerKit, I will proceed with the smoke test.
  2. Smoke Test: This initial test will ensure everything is functioning correctly before the surveys are sent out to everyone.
  3. Survey Distribution: After a successful smoke test, everyone will receive their surveys and have access to the preorder shop

Your support means the world to me, and I cannot thank you enough for your love, patience and understanding. As a token of my appreciation, I am including a special surprise in each of your orders. Your continued support and encouragement have been a beacon of hope for me, and I am incredibly grateful.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for standing by me and giving me the time I needed to get back on my feet. 

I love you all!!
Christy

Project Update: More pin previews!

Hey everyone! I have some more pin previews. 

For Cerberus though I’m going to be making some changes. For the white one: 1) he’s going to have pinker ears/nose and 2) I need to get his fur shaded <3. For the black one: 1) I’m going to pick a brighter color red. I’m not as happy with the dark red. 

I’m also changing the colors of the lavender phoenix so he isn’t pictured here.

Corgi Kitsune is still in the works! Next update will have the lavender phoenix, bother Cerberuses and the corgi Kitsune!

Project Update: Charging cards this Friday!

The pins are well into production so I’m going to go ahead and set the final charge on cards for Friday! Outside of that I don’t have anything super pertinent to add about this project. Just very tired from conventions and overhauling my dad’s old house, but that’s almost to an end now which will be nice. 

As for new designs and pins I’ve finished with my convention rush season so I’m back to the drawing board to come up with my next project! I have a million ideas but I think for the next pin I’m going to do smaller pins (round a inch) which are all nature themed, like insects and fossils and skulls and flowers and all that good stuff. It’s been a while since ive made some smaller, cheaper pins and I think it would be nice to work on that for a little. Most likely, should everything go as planned, that will be up in a month or two. I also have some greek god/dess designs I've been rotating in my head which id love to do more like this project, and maybe something some angles and devils. But those are going to take a bit of work before im happy with them so that will be much later in the year. Let me know if any of that sounds interesting to you. I hope everyone is having a great summer so far, have a good one!

Project Update: Pin sample photos!!

Hi so everyone has been filling out the surveys it’s been going pretty well with just a few people remaining! I’ll be adding more to the store soon this will be its own update to let everyone know though c:

But I wanted to share current pictures I’ve gotten from my manufacturer please know these are only
Samples and nowhere near done they’re made for colour selection reasons and making sure to fix before larger production! 
Currently I’m thinking I like the strawpurries having the pink metal (it’s pink or will look pink the lighting + no screen printing throws it to a red in the image. the sugar ants I’m going to change to black nickel instead of blue even if the blue looks super cool with the transparent backing the ants will look better in black. 
Obviously the bee kitty on the collaboration pin is filled with the transparent when it should be the solid yellow. The Strawpurry tea “green” on the inside cup is much too green and the honey purrs blue looks too blue but this could be lighting based and because it looks like it wasn’t completed before the photo.

Anyone have any thoughts?/ suggestions ;v;
Also sorry if i missed anyone’s comment on the previous update it’s difficult only being able to reply to the first comment 😅

Project Update: Pin Update: Trihorn Meatle

Hi  all! Hope you all have been well! As I continue working with my supplier I have an update they provided me concerning the Trihorn Meatle pin that I wanted to share.

The pin is produced with Red Chrome, and unfortunately because of the plating it's caused some bleeding into the translucent and white enamel as seen in the photo below.


While my supplier will do the best to minimize the impact, this does mean that my grading system will slightly adjust as a result of this issue. Pins with minor bleeding will be acceptable A - Grade Pins, while ones with major bleeding (like the photo above) will be marked as B Grade. 

I understand if this might be disappointing, and as a reminder I'll be opening surveys before shipping so you can adjust which products you might want if need be Because of how expensive these pins are to produce, I don't really have it in my budget to remake at the moment. Again I'll do myself and my supplier will do our best to ensure that the pins you receive have minimal bleeding, but it might be unavoidable. Personally I think the look kinda fits with the vibe of the pin. 

As always feel free to provide your input below or privately at [email protected]. I'm more than happy to adjust my current course to ensure you guys are happy with your products. 

Thank you so much for understanding!
