Pintopia 2024

This project is part of Pintopia 2024, which runs from March 28th - April 18th 2024. The more Pintopia pins you back, the more FREE pins you can earn ✨ Learn more →



For those who know of my prior projects, although I am MindytheTurtle, I am more known for bees! ALL THE BEES! However, I have wanted to do an aquatic themed enamel pins since I started creating merchandise. The ocean is one of my favourite places as terrifying as it can be.  But just the various life that live in there are absolutely fascinating! Sadly, I wasn't able to include all the different types of oceanic life, but I hope my selection is vast enough to add to your collection!

Please consider following me on Twitter or Instagram @MindytheTurtle. 


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 ✨

Thank you Backerkit for inviting me to participate in Pintopia 2! I am extremely grateful to be paired up with Lexidus who has been absolutely amazing. The special that Pintopia 2 is bringing to everyone is if you back both Salty Tinies (this project) and Lexidus' Shroomie Roomies, you will get both pins above free with your pledge!

Risks and challenges
  • Colours: - Colours may appear different in real life to how they appear on the screens. - It isn't possible to achieve 100% colour accuracy because pantones are mixed individually and by hand. I will work with the manufacturer to ensure that the colours turn out well.
  • Design: - There might be minor changes to the design based on manufacturer's capabilities. This will most likely reflect on the small areas. - There may be potential design changes as the items are being manufactured. Any significant changes will be communicated through updates on Kickstarter.
  • Delivery: - There might be delays in delivery and original estimated production time. I will post any updates I receive from the manufacturer. - I have added a little bit of wiggle room to include delays, but with covid and shipping delays, there is still the potential for the bags to arrive later than anticipated. I will provide updates as I receive them. - Please note, there won't be any returns due to delays in delivery.
  • Chargebacks: - If you ever want to back out of the project AFTER it has been funded, please message me first before filing a chargeback. I will not question why you are backing out and will refund you the payment you have sent. If a chargeback is filed and the name matches the individual filing the chargeback, measures will be taken with future projects.
