Campaign is complete- What now? & Help me by filling out a form!

Hey everyone,

Thank you SO MUCH for supporting this project! I am awestruck by the numbers we were able to reach.

What happens now?

Please read through this update and check the campaign page if you have any questions! It can be difficult to respond to everyone individually. 

Today, cards will be charged for your pledge level. 

If there is an issue with your card, Backerkit will notify you to fix it. 

In 1-2 weeks, you will receive the BackerKit Survey where you choose your items, pay for shipping, and provide your address. 

This takes time to set up properly and I want to make sure everything runs smoothly when I hit send. Shipping will be based on weight of the packages, and will be at or below the estimated values listed on the campaign page- if you're not sure about shipping costs please check there. I will be waiting a few days for payments to come through and I am also still in the process of finalizing some designs so I can offer you all as many fun different add-ons as possible.

Manufacturing

I will get manufacturing going on some items this week, once I get a little feedback from you (see below). I need to wait for the funds to come into my account to be able to start the majority of the manufacturing!
Pins take 6-8 weeks, wallets and bags will take 3-4 months. Here is a reminder of my projected timeline:


An ask for you... Please fill out this Google Form to help me plan! https://forms.gle/nvZPpA6rtBzM8yD59

If I can get at least half of the backers to fill out this form, I can get manufacturing going on several items now. I will be doing my manufacturing in waves so that I can better handle each shipment when it arrives.

Other Stuff:
- Egg wallet samples are scheduled to arrive at my house today or tomorrow, so I'll be sharing photos of those soon
- Additional Pin and Sticker/Keychain designs will be shared as soon as I finish them
- A Preorder Store will open for those who missed the campaign in the next week or so

Thank you, thank you!
I will do my best to provide updates here at every step of the way. but you can follow along at @Corviforms on Twitter for more frequent updates.

Is it an option to create the bags without the clear window/wing insert for pins? Just have a solid black leather (or whatever material it is) wing? Hope that makes sense!

All of the bags will still have the window so it will still be kind of shiny there, but you can leave the insert blank for a less busy looking bag! I don't have anything that would cover the window at the moment. also in case anyone was wondering - the wing inserts are a sort of satin material over a thin piece of foam

I can’t decide between pigeon and seagull! Would the seagull’s beak get bent easily? Thank you for creating these, they’re too cute to resist and I can’t wait to wear it around to make a statement… that trash birds are fashionable LOL.

They seem pretty sturdy! if it gets a little bent out of shape it should be easy enough to bend it back but that's part of the reason I wont do, like, a hummingbird for these lol

A hummie bag would be adorable, but yeah, the needle beak would be a challenge! You’re so creative. :) Thanks!

Thanks for the update! I found these bags via a Facebook ad and I clicked it several different times on several different days until I finally caved and ordered one! Now I regret not doing it sooner... as I need that wormy pin! I'll be ordering one of those too if possible. Can't wait to wear my new flamingo bag to our local zoo and aviary!

I'll have the worms as add-ons :) and if you manage to get a photo of the flamingo bag with real flamingos in the background you HAVE to post it and tag me lol

Super excited to be a part of this. I NEVER buy purses nor use them but I WILL now haha. If we were going to change addresses (but don't know exactly where yet), will the survey address be adjustable? Or would I be able to contact you directly when I find my new address?

You will be able to edit your address for a while, I won't lock them until much later when I'm ready to ship in fall since so many people tend to move over the summer. If you need to change after addresses are locked, then you can reach out to me!
