Welcome to Pintopia — a celebration of creativity and collaboration from a diverse group of artists collectively running enamel pin crowdfunding projects from March 28th - April 18th.

Freebie Cross-Collaboration Pins — All 125+ Pintopia creators have paired up with a fellow participant to create two unique pin designs together. If BOTH projects reach their initial funding goal, backers who support BOTH will get the TWO [2] cross-collab pins for FREE! One from each creator. The more pairs of Pintopia creators you support, the more free pins you will earn ✨




Monster Match Enamel Pinups is proud to be a part of Pintopia 2! I've partnered up with Succulent Scribbles and between us we have created the above pins featuring a tiefling named Theren, designed collaboratively between myself, Scribbles, and their artist Velloria! Look at this cute li'l guy! Both of these pins will measure around 2.5" tall, with black nickel plating and hard enamel.

Click the banner below to go check out Scribbles' campaign and receive these TWO free pins for backing both!

Monster Match features 8 enamel pins, each one a different type of monster.

The size of the pins ranges from 2.75"-3.5" which are my biggest pins yet to date - they're big boys, literally!

All pins will use hard enamel with black nickel plating and have my logo stamped on the back, and heart-shaped black rubber backs.

The initial goal of the campaign will fund Vlad the Vampire, in addition to the “Horny on Main” Tiefling pin created in collaboration with Succulent Scribbles (please refer to the Pintopia section for more information).

Standard vs. Premium pins

This campaign includes standard and premium designs. Standard pins are slightly smaller with minimal effects, where premium pins are large and/or have special effects, which could include chains, glow-in-the-dark enamel, glitter, or other effects.
Edit


The rest of the enamel pins (and a few other goodies, too!) in this campaign will be unlocked as stretch goals outlined below~! Check back often to keep track of which pin designs get unlocked!

Edit


In addition to the main pins for the campaign, there are also a few extra goodies in this campaign!

Monster Match logo vinyl sticker

"Proud Monster Fucker/Lover" holographic sticker

This sticker is extra special, with rainbow holographic details! They'll be about 3.5" tall. It comes in 2 versions - polite and impolite. Those who receive this sticker will get to choose which version they receive.

One sticker is included for backers of 4+ pins. Those who back the full set will get both versions included for free.

Monster Match: Build A Boyfriend


Voting has concluded, and here is the result: say hello to our new Monster Match boyfriend, Enoch the Eldritch Horror!



Pin Specs:
  • Hard enamel
  • Black nickel plating
  • 3" tall
  • standard pin

Reward Information:
  • Enoch will be included in the "ALL-IN" and "Full Set" pledge levels.
  • He will be available as a reward and counts as a "standard" pin.
  • He is also now available as an add-on.
Edit


Add-ons will be available during the campaign and afterwards during the survey as well. Please see below for information about add-on items.


Note about locking backs: for this campaign, locking backs will cost $1 per pin and will include 2 backs per order. This means if you order multiple pins, you need to add on multiple locking backs. E.g. if you pledge for 5 pins and you want locking backs for all of them, you need to add on 5 locking backs.

Early Bird Backers: Early bird backers will have the option to add on more enamel pins at early bird pricing during the post-campaign survey. If you're an early bird backer and you want to save a few dollars, I recommend waiting until then to add on more pins to your order.
Edit


Shipping for Monster Match orders will be charged AFTER the campaign and is not included with your pledge.

Please see a table below for estimated shipping costs. These are subject to change.

**I am not responsible for any additional tax or import fees incurred upon reception of your package.**

Thank you for understanding, and I'm sorry for any inconveniences this may cause.

Past Experience


I have successfully run, funded, and completed multiple crowdfunding campaigns for enamel pins in the past. I have run them all through Kickstarter and this is my first time running a campaign on BackerKit.

Returning backers will know that even through hiccups during the campaign, whether it be manufacturer issues or personal life things getting in the way, I have always delivered gorgeous high-quality products in the end.

I promise you can trust me to follow through and deliver you beautiful pins!

Refunds & Exchanges

Refunds must be requested within 30 days after the campaign's end date. I will not accept refunds after this cutoff.

Backers are given ample time to make decisions while the survey is active. Once your order is locked in, I will not accept any refunds or exchanges.

If your rewards arrive damaged during transit, please reach out to me with photos to see what can be done.

Surveys

Surveys will be sent out after the campaign's completion. Surveys are mandatory - this is where you will choose which rewards you want to receive and also where you will submit your shipping information. If I do not receive a survey response, I cannot send your rewards.

Forfeiture of rewards

Ample time is given for backers to submit their surveys to receive their rewards. If I do not receive a survey response from you by the time shipping is complete, you will forfeit your pledge and your rewards. I will not fulfill or refund forfeited rewards after the posted completion date.

Import fees

I am not responsible for any additional import fees or taxes that may be incurred during the shipping process for international (outside of the USA) orders.

Grading

All pins are graded for quality assurance. Please note that all pins are handmade items and often have minor cosmetic imperfections (even those of A/Standard grade).

A Grade/Standard grade imperfections include but are not limited to:

  • minor surface scuffing on the enamel or metal plating
  • very small specs of dust in unnoticeable areas
  • minor/unnoticeable enamel underfill
  • minor/unnoticeable air bubbles
  • small specs of dust in soft enamel pins
  • fluctiations of color patterns in rainbow anodized plating
  • small air bubbles in epoxy coating on pins that have it
  • slightly offset screenprinting on pins that have it

Color & Size

It is vital to understand that all the images in this campaign are NOT photographs, but artist mockup of the pin designs. Due to manufacturing constraints, differences in colors of monitors between computers/phones/tablets etc, there likely will be variations between the images in the campaign and the final product.

Risks & Challenges

I have past experience with making enamel pins so I don't expect there to be many issues, however there's always the possibility that unexpected delays can occur due to manufacturer mistakes, shipping delays, and/or quality control issues.

There is also the possibility that I may have to make small tweaks to the designs to maintain the integrity of the pins but there should be no major changes in overall design. I will always convey any issues that come up with backers through the updates section.

If I receive the pins and a design has a consistent flaw across majority of the pins, it will be considered standard grade for that batch.

If the flaw is something I consider major, however, I may have to reorder flawed pins which will cause shipping out rewards to be delayed. All this will be conveyed through post-campaign updates.

There is also the possibility that not all pin designs get funded. If this happens please understand that only the unlocked designs & items will be available as rewards. In the case the project does not get funded at all, you will not be charged and the pins will not be made.

Lastly, I am only one person running everything and sometimes unexpected personal emergencies can come up and cause delays, so please understand that! Again, I will communicate everything through the updates.
