Project Update: July Update: More pictures and card charging

Hello everyone!Β 
I finally have an update from my Manu, which means I have an update for you all!Β 
We have photos of all the pins (these are at the end of the update) ! And they should ship to me before the end of the month?
Β A little longer than I anticipated? Yeah, but would I rather that than rushed b grade pins? Yeah, I would.Β 

What does this mean? It means I'll be charging cards for shipping fees at the end of the month, and then locking addresses. YOU WILL receive an email before addresses lock to let you know it times to update them if you need to. If you already need to, do it now before you forget <3

If anyone has any issues, please email me! You should be able to through contact me, or support request!Β 

Anyway here are the photos <3Β

Project Update: Pintopia Update: 5/7 plushies complete! (cosmic poll inside πŸ‘½)

Happy Saturday critters!

Things are progressing on the pintopia front, albeit a bit slower than I would like. I've received 5 of the 7 plushies and finally managed to get some quality turnarounds of them all! Will be updating the preorder store this week with the new photos, and I expect the remaining samples to ship out next week.




Because we're still waiting on the final two plushies and the wolpertinger sweater, I'm holding off on locking orders/closing the preorder store a little while longer. As stated before, its important to me that folks get to see what they're ordering before they commit to it and for that reason I won't be setting a deadline until we have photos of these final few items.

Pin samples should also be coming down the pipe soon, so I hope to have one big, exciting, photo-filled update for you within the next week or two!


In the meantime I need some help! As promised, its now time to decide which Cosmic Beelzebear will be the official one. I don't have the shiny version in hand yet so for now I'm using the photos provided by the manufacturer. Fur colors are identical, the only difference is the material used on the wings/star/belly badge.
Β 


Winner will go on to be mass produced! While I would love to accommodate everyone and make both, its simply not feasible at our size/with this budget-- thank you for understanding πŸ’–

Project Update: Pin Photos and Charging Cards

Hello backers, I have graded all the pins and finally have pin photos for you all!

But before those, some reminders: you should have received an email from Backerkit about your surveys. These have been unlocked, and will be locked again in 48 hours.

If you change your selections at this time or have not yet submitted your survey, and there are an insufficient number of pins to cover your selections, your pledge may be delayed. We are especially low on extras of the following pins in standard grade:
  • Tattoo Seraph (Glitter)
  • Stigmata
  • Lae'zel
  • Astarion
  • Red Wolf (Sunset)
  • African Wild Dog (Pastel)
  • Wyll
  • Tattoo Seraph
  • Oath of the Drowned

If I cannot fulfill your order, I will email you to inquire if you would prefer delaying your shipment for a few months, while additional pins are made; would like to select a different pin; or would be satisfied with a seconds grade pin instead. Please make sure you can access your Backerkit email.

Once surveys are locked again I will charge cards for anyone who purchased addons, and addresses will be locked as well. Be sure to check your payment information and shipping address are correct. If you lost your survey, you can recover it here.

Now that the pins are graded, a few notes for you all:
  • Just a reminder that the Astarion and Lae'zel pins are mixed grade, and have different backing cards from the other pins. As of right now I have enough A-grade pins for everyone who ordered them, but if you submitted a late survey or change your selection you may receive a B-grade pin.Β 
  • The rainbow plated pins have unique plating for each pin, colors may differ from what is shown in the pictures and video.Β 
  • The pins with screen-printing (in particular the Starry Squid and Dandelion Angel pins) may have printing that goes onto the metal or edges of the pin a little bit. Since this is present in most of the pins and can't be avoided it will not be considered a flaw, if it bothers you please select a different pin.
  • The chrome plated pins, in particular the Stigmata pin, may have tint in the enamel due to the plating.
If you would like more information on my pin grading system, please see my About Page & FAQ.

And now without further ado, here are all the pins.















































I've also posted videos on Instagram, TikTok, and Tumblr showing them in action. Astarion and Lae'zel have been posted separately, you can find them on Instagram, Tiktok, and Tumblr as well.

Once you receive your package, feel free to contact Backerkit support if there are any issues with your rewards. They will forward your message to me. I can accommodate replacements or exchanges if needed. Please do not message me on social media or comment on the campaign page, if you do that I may miss your message.

Let me know if you have any questions in the comments. I'll be back with another update to let you know when the pins have all shipped out to you.

Project Update: Manufacturing Finished, Photos, and Charging Cards!

Howdy y'all!

Sorry for the delay here. I was waiting for some good news, as I had some delays with the pins being manufactured. All of that is resolved now, and the manufacturing is now done!Β 

With that done, I will be charging cards today so that as soon as they arrive, I can start sending them your way! The finish line is almost here, and your pins are nearly on their way!

Thank you for your patience and support,

Austin

Feast your beautiful eyes on these wonderful pins!

Project Update: More info about shipping - which has started, yay! πŸ’ƒπŸ»βœ¨

Here's the rundown of right now:Β 
  • It took me ~10 days to get 1,010 pins graded, carded, wrapped and boxed. βœ…
  • I was going to make all the packages and batch ship them but it turns out my brain is WAY too spicy for that! 🚫
  • Instead I'm working on making about 10-15 packages per day and will continue to do so until they are all done. I made 12 today and those go out tomorrow! 🌟
  • I am working in alphabetical order from A-Z by first name because it makes it faster for me to slap the labels on. πŸ”€
  • PirateShip will be sending you an email with your tracking info when you're stuff is on the way! πŸ“¨
  • All packages are insured. When your package arrives please check the contents AS SOON AS POSSIBLE because these are Limited Edition items I need to know sooner rather than later if you need replacements for any reason. πŸ•’
  • I will likely burn out at some point on packages and need to take a day or so to do literally anything else so thanks for your patience. πŸ™πŸ»
  • I will make another update saying "I'm done" when I'm done so you can know if you need to contact me if you didn't get tracking. πŸ”

Thanks so much for your support and patience! Almost there!!

Project Update: New Production Photos + Timeline Update

Hello Everyone!

I just had a few updates from a few days ago, including some first looks at finished dragon pins.Β 


Custom Items:

I am still working to contact people for confirmation of proofs, so if I haven't contacted you yet, just know that I am working my way down the list. Some people have far more detailed requests than others. Thank you all for your patience.Β 

Stickers:

I've begun the process of printing out and cutting stickers for each pledge. I've got well over 2,000k stickers to make, and I am excited to do so.

Sticker Book Update:

The estimated time to get sticker books is the end of August. However, I will plan for this to not affect most pledges. Those pledgers who do have sticker books coming will most likely have their pledges shipped out in September. Just to be safe I've updated the timeline accordingly.Β 

Timeline Update:

I've created a new timeline to ensure transparency. It is still my goal to get no less than 150 orders out in August, but of course with over 5,000 pins to individually review and process that is a bit of a large goal. But I will keep everyone updated!


Production Photos:



Thanks, everyone! - Dakota


A collaboration campaign coming soon! Going from September 6th - September 16th! In collaboration with the Collector's Guild Cafe!Β

Project Update: Samples + locking pledges + charging cards July 28 + backing card upgrade + Gen Con

Hello backers!

I'm excited to share a run of milestones and announcements!

  • Pin production is progressing nicely and I have samples incoming!
  • I am locking pledges in 48 hours and will be charging for shipping, taxes, add-ons, and pledge upgrades on July 28
  • I'm upgrading pins to come packaged on backing cards
  • I'll have a sampling of pins to show at Gen Con Aug 1-4

I'll go into each headline in further detail below!

Pin production progressing well

The factory was kind enough to advance-produce a run of 15 of each design so I will be able to check colors and quality and bring a sampling of pins with me to Gen Con.

Everything is looking beautiful, and there's only one design I'm making adjustments to. Otherwise, I think they knocked it out of the park! Here's a photo the producer sent me. I'll post some more detailed photos when I have them in hand!



Next steps will be to finish the remaining copies of each design, package the pins, and then have the shipment divided up into three fulfillment regions (USA/international, UK/EU, and Canada).Β 

For the USA and Canada, any pledges that include my cross-collaborator David Malki's pins will ship together when David's pins are also ready. For UK/EU pledges, David and I are shipping separately. We'll be confirming our plan for shipping international parcels closer to our actual fulfillment date, which is scheduled for the fall.

Locking pledges in 48 hours + charging cards on July 28

I've set pledges to lock in 48 hours. For the next 48 hours, you can still change your reward survey responses and add-on additional pins, dice towers, or books.

After the 48 hours passes, you won't be able to change the contents of your pledge or the answers in your reward survey.

You will, however, still be able to update your address as long as your country stays the same. For support changing the country of your address, please get in touch through BackerKit support!

I will be charging cards for shipping, taxes, add-ons, and pledge upgrades on July 28. I'll post another update a few days before I do so to remind everyone.

Upgrading pins to come on backing cards

I've always loved opening pins that come mounted on nice backing cards and I've decided to upgrade the pins for the project to come this way. I think it adds a lot to the unboxing experience!

Here's a mock-up of what a mounted pin should look like!



Bringing pins to show at Gen Con Aug 1-4

Our pin producer was kind enough to produce an initial sample run for me to bring to Gen Con 2024. I will be at booth 1237 (BFE Webcomics in the program), selling both my comic merchandise and representing my decks of storytelling and worldbuilding prompts as The Story Engine!

If you're coming to Gen Con and would like to pick up your pledge early, please let me know in the comments below by July 24 and I will prepare your pledge for pickup. Please note that the pins available at Gen Con will NOT have the card back mounting.

That's all for now!

I'm so excited to be fulfilling these in fall! In the meantime, please let me know in the comments or via BackerKit support request if you have any questions!
