Project Update: Only a few hours to go! ✨

Good morning critters!

With just a few hours to go I wanted to squeeze in one more thank you for the incredible turnout, and a final hoorah of sorts by unlocking Dragon Fruit Bat a little early! I'm kind of in awe we're almost at 90k already, and know 100k is all but guaranteed over the next month and some change of prototyping so it just makes sense!


Remember the bug friend pin set is unlocked too, so it will also be available on the survey sent out later this month!

And finally I just want to reiterate that there will be a preorder window after the campaign, so don't fret or put yourself in a financial bind if you can't afford everything you want right now. You'll have the opportunity to edit your survey and add items through most of May and potentially into June πŸ’–

Project Update: That's a wrap!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

Wow wow wow, almost 92k!! Thank you so much critters, and as usual I will hit the ground running so I can send everything off to production ASAP! πŸ™

In the meantime I'd like share a brief timeline that covers the next few weeks, so you know what to expect-- if you backed series 2 this will all sound very familiar and if you're new here I hope this clears up any lingering confusion!

Week 1 - Payments take about 2 weeks to process. While this is happening I will be working on getting surveys and the preorder store ready to go live. The preorder store will probably launch by next week, but if you already backed please wait for your survey to add more items! Otherwise you'll be charged twice for shipping and that's no fun.

Week 2 - By the end of this week surveys should be almost ready to launch! Usually a smoke test is performed to make sure everything is working correctly (a small percentage of surveys are sent out and responses are collected and monitored for around 24 hours), and then the bulk go out if everything looks good.

Week 2 to 4 (and onward) - I usually follow a two week update schedule unless more exciting stuff happens in between. These are pretty much just progress reports so you know where we're at on prototyping and all that fun stuff!

I do recommend at least skimming them though because I also share important dates this way and address questions I see popping up frequently.

Late May to June - The preorder store and surveys should close around this time. If you added any items onto your pledge or placed a preorder, this is when you'll be charged for these items. I don't have a concrete closure date right now (prototyping is pretty nebulous that way) but I will share one at least two weeks in advance.Β 


I think that just about covers all the most important milestones! SO looking forward to sharing some prototype photos with you all within the next week or so. We've got quite the eclectic bunch of snughouls coming up and I just know they're going to look incredible πŸ’–Β

Project Update: 6th Snughoul Unlocked! And Creature Feature: AuDHD Creatures ✨

Whoohoo critters!

We finally hit the 80k mark, meaning a 6th snughoul plush is UNLOCKED! Not only that but Rosy Maple made a stunning comeback in the polls so it looks like they'll be the one joining us first!

Remember if we hit 100k, I'll add Dragon Fruit Bat as well. I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility, both before the campaigns official ending or after, during the preorder phase!Β 
Β 
We should also be getting a plushie update this week, and I'm looking forward to the boost of engagement that will trigger πŸ’–


Now time for the last creature feature while the campaign is live!Β 

I'm SO excited to announce I'll be providing some guest art for AuDHD Creatures, a gorgeous and adorable collection of plushies with colors based on a variety of disabilities and conditions.Β 

I volunteered to draw Ash, the anxiety bunny moth! As someone who has dealt with anxiety all my life, it was an honor to draw them and be part of this project in some small way. You'll soon be able to grab both these designs as a pin, and charm/sticker respectively!Β

Congratulations to Evan for yet another incredibly successful campaign! Some mindblowing achievements of this campaign: -#1 most funded campaign in all of Pintopia -Third most funded campaign of all the ones live on the WHOLE site (as of right before ending) -2nd largest number of backers in all of Pintopia -Despite being only 0.8% of all Pintopia (1 campaign out of 121), it contributed over 1000 of the total 23,000 backers, and $91,745 of the total $972,735 in funding (Just under 10%!!!) I feel like Snughouls is a cult classic on it’s way to becoming a cultural icon. Thank you everyone for contributing and thank you Evan for continuously making cool stuff for us to love, obsess over, and spend all our money on πŸ˜‚

Project Update: New Design Reveal - 1000 Backer Achievement Goal - 8 Hours Left!

Hey everyone,

There is just about 8 hours left in the campaign! Thank you all so much for supporting this campaign, it's now my most successful pin campaign run on BackerKit crowdfunding!

1000 Backer Achievement Goal

If we reach 1000 backers than each pledge with come with one free extra pin, of your choosing, from any of the unlocked designs. Yesterday when I posted that goal we were over 100 backers away, and I called the goal "a little out there". Clearly I was wrong because ya'll pulled up and as I'm writing this we're just 6 backers away from reaching that goal.

Keep in mind the referral program where you can get two free pins for referring a friend, and now, if we reach 1000 backers you'll get another free pin on top of that. For information about the refer a friend program please read the previous update.

New Designs

Two new designs have been added since we last added the Library Pins.

The Do Not Disturb pin is modeled after a hotel door hanger and features headphones, a book, and an e-reader, because regardless of how we consume our books, we want to be left alone to read in peace!

The Roses are Red pin features a baroque style frame border, and a little smut poem for all the romance readers out there. One thing to keep in mind with this pin is the way it's constructed. This pin is essentially two pins faceted together, which means this pin is thick. Due to the sanding and polishing process of enamel pins the die struck 3d part has to be made separately from the enamel and screen printed part. If you order this pin just keep in mind that it will be thicker and heavier than your average pin.

As of right now these are the last two designs of the campaign. I have an idea for another pin, but I don't know if it will be included or not. However, the success of this campaign could mean that later this year we might launch Ink & Enamel 2, because I still have so many book/reading related designs I want to make.


Cheers,
Liz
If we reach 1000 Backers, each pledge will receive one free extra pin, of your choosing, from all unlocked designs. (One free pin per pledge)
Goal: 1,000 backers reached! β€” We did it! This project reached this goal!

Project Update: THAT'S ALL, FOLKS! Project summary + next steps

Good evening, Jailbirds! And, congrats, fellow Pintopia artists!

This is the final update for the actual fun part of the campaign. But, unfortunately for you, it is not the last time you'll be hearing from me.

Bird crimes closed at 1 PM PST/4 PM EST today. Don't cry because it's over, smile because you people somehow raised $14,043. Jesus christ.

Before we get to the boring technical business crap, let's go over some numbers and milestones.


$1k of that nauseating $14.05k was raised in 17 minutes. We launched 5 minutes before I went to work, and when I went to change my stupid podcast, we were funded. Let that sink in. In the time it took me to get to work, scrub up, and deal with a couple customers, you guys fully funded this campaign.

In about four hours, you smashed $4k and unlocked every initial stretch goal. The Parrotlet, Lovebird, Zebra Finch, Rooster and Broody Hen pins were hot and ready for all backers by the time I was done showering, feeding the dog, and getting a mid-day shitty Korean coffee.

Corviforms' BACKYARD BIRDS was funded in full, which is the understatement of the century. So, all mutual backers will be getting two free pins! If you joined a physical tier (even stickers only) for BIRD CRIMES, and got at least one pin from Corvi, you qualify.

Bird Crimes MUGSHOTS are available for all backers! These are vinyl stickers of each unlocked design available for $2. You could either add these to your pledge, or, you can grab them in your survey later.
Β 
You unlocked a free sticker sheet for all backers! Every backer who pledged for a physical tier will get the 4" vinyl CRIMES sticker sheet as part of their order.

Not including addons, British "people" or edited/cancelled pledges, 876 BIRD CRIMES pins have been purchased. At 1 oz. each, that is roughly half of my dog worth of pins. I expect three quarters, to one full dog, to weigh in once surveys are complete.

Eight stretch goal birds have been unlocked. All together, the Cockatiel, Budgie, Green Cheek Conure, Parrotlet, Lovebird, Zebra Finch, Rooster, Broody Hen, Sparrow, Pigeon and Cockatoo will be available for 1.75" pins and MUGSHOTS.

While we'll miss the seagull, wren and kakapo, these scumbag recidivists always re-offend. They might be back at a later date.

And finally, when it comes to backers, there are 469 of you! That's a pretty unfortunate number to have up on the campaign page for eternity, but that's an awesome turnout. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to each and every one of you, for making this stupid thing happen.

If you are one of those backers, you will probably want to pay attention for a little longer. It is time to talk about surveys.

If not: there WILL be items available on the preorder store! That update will go out later this week.
