Project Update: 💌 Surveys Are Coming (Please Read)

Hey friends, the moment you've all been waiting for has arrived—BackerKit surveys are coming for Pizza Pinz 🍕

Here's when you can expect to get your BackerKit survey and start choosing your Pizza Pinz pizza styles:
  • 5% of you will get the survey at some point between TONIGHT (Tuesday, September 6th) and TOMORROW (Wednesday, September 7th). I'm sending out this small batch to ensure everything works smoothly.
  • Assuming all goes well, the rest of you can expect your survey between Wednesday and Thursday of this week.

Be sure to check the email address you use to sign into BackerKit and the one you made your pledge with. Once you get it, you can expect to provide the following:

  1. Choose the style of pin(s) you want based on the pledge level you chose during the campaign (Example: If your pledge level was "TWO [2] pins of your choice" you will first select the TWO [2] pins you want.)
  2. Select additional pins you want to add to your order (optional). As a special thank-you to backers, you can select additional pins to add to your order for a discounted rate of $10 each. No limit!
  3. Confirm your shipping address. You can always update your information any time before we finalize your address. You will get a reminder to confirm your address before we ship!
  4. Add your payment info for shipping and add-ons. You WILL NOT be charged immediately. You will have a few weeks to adjust your orders. I have tentatively planned to charge cards around September 22nd. I'll post an update with a heads up.
  5. Review and place your order. Remember, you can still edit your address and order until I lock it down. I will send an update before I do either with a few days heads up.

It's VERY IMPORTANT for everyone to completely fill out the survey right when you get it as I will use the information within to decide my final pin orders with my manufacturer. The sooner you fill out the survey, the sooner I get to manufacturing the pins!

Also note that not all pins will come in the mimi pizza box. Here is a handy guide to help you, this image is also on the main campaign page:


  • As a backer (at any level!), you will all automatically get ONE [1] "Pizza Saver" enamel pin added automatically to your order/cart for FREE. If you would like additional "Pizza Saver" pins, you can add them as your pledge choice(s) or as add-ons.
  • If you backed BOTH Pizza Pinz (Jason Furie) AND Bird Ita Bags (Corviforms), you will automatically get ONE [1] "Pigeon Party" enamel pin added to your order/cart for FREE. If you missed out, or if you would like additional "Pigeon Party" pins, you can add them as your pledge choice(s) or as add-ons. Party on!
  • Your free "Pigeon #1" pin from Bird Ita Bags (Corviforms) will come in your order from them, not your Pizza Pinz order.


Your survey will reveal what your shipping costs are based on your region and your order weight. I spent a good portion of Saturday at USPS figuring out the best packaging and rates AND spent the rest of the weekend comparing notes with my fellow pin-makers. A lot of factors are at play here including the state of the world and it's affect on shipping, physical shipping costs, packaging costs, and handling time. Here are the final rates:

  • USA - $6
  • CANADA - $15

The simple fact is that these costs are out of my control and the world of shipping right now is complete mayhem. I hope you all trust I am doing the best I can. The good news is my estimates were really close with the exception of Canada—those prices have almost doubled. Since there are pins in this order I cannot consider these "Flats" and all packaged must be charged as "Parcel". If this will pose an issue with you, please reach out to me at [email protected]. I'm happy to chat about it, but again, these prices are out of my control and I will even take a hit on some regions.

YES, the prices are pretty consistent when you order 1-25 pins. So if you fall in that bracket, the shipping costs will remain the same. This is one of the reasons why I decided to offer ALL add-on pins for just $10.


And don't forget! Our official "Should pineapple be on pizza?" vote starts NOW! If you think it should add a "YES - PINEAPPLE" pin to your order, if not add a "NO - PINEAPPLE" pin to your order. Each pin bought counts as 1 vote! If you buy both the data will be ruined! Just kidding, it'll be a neutral vote for each! We're going to settle this nonsense once and for all!

Phew! That was a way bigger update than I expected! That's the name of the game when there is this much movin' and shakin' going on. I'm so very excited to be one step closer to getting these little pizza pins in your hands.

Sound off in the comments with this prompt:

"If you could ONLY have ONE Pizza Pinz pin, which would it be?"

Small ya later,
Jason 🍕
