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 →


Welcome traveller, you are brave to enter these parts for here, there be dragons! No need to fear in this region however, these beasties are smaller than their epic cousins. This is the realm of the Tiny Hoarders, little collectors of even littler things! My name is Chloe, and I shall be your guide in introducing you to the many variaties you will find here.

This is my 18th crowdfunding project, I've been running Pin & Tonic for many years now so you're in good hands!

Every pin will be produced in hard enamel with beautiful gold plating. They are sized to show off all of the details without being too bulky, and to match each other as a set.

Our base goal unlocks Luck and her Clover Mini Pin. More dragons will unlock as goals are funded, plus there's the option to add even more as the campaign progresses!

Hoarder of luck, bringer of good fortune!

Hoarder of wishes, bringer of dreams

Hoarder of charms, bringer of protection

Hoarder of books, bringer of stories

Hoarder of dice, bringer of chances

Hoarder of coffee, bringer of beans!

Once these are unlocked there are opportunities for more dragons, freebie stretch goals, stickers... All sorts! Let's conquer this realm and see what we can discover together.

BackerKit exclusive design! Remaining stock after the campaign may be sold online but will not be restocked.

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 ✨

Add to your personal hoard, with beautiful pins of arcana! The lovely Key & Crow Studios has a splendid array of trinkets and potions to add to your pinventory~


Shipping will be charged after the campaign has ended and nearer to the time that packages will be sent - the below are estimates based on current shiping rates and approx pin weights

Estimated shipping rates are based on full sized pins and accurate as of March 2024:

United Kingdom - First Class - estimated 2 to 4 business days
  • Packages of approx. 4 pins - £3
  • Packages of approx. 10 pins - £5
  • Larger packages - £8

International Backers - Standard International (no tracking) - estimated 3 to 17 business days
  • Packages of approx. 4 pins - £7
  • Packages of approx. 10 pins - £10
  • Larger packages - £14+

It will be possible to upgrade to tracked shipping for an additional cost at the survey stage.

Please note - due to their weight cardigan shipping is more expensive than the prices shown in the shipping section. I will update this section with prices for those soon.

Whilst this timeline is an estimate, I have allowed some wiggle room so we should be able to stick to this plan!

March 28th - April 18th - BackerKit Campaign

April 19th - May 3rd - Pledges collected and surveys prepped

- Surveys sent, data collected!

June - July
- Manufacturing

August - Quality check and shipping!

All best laid plans can be tested along the way, so should this change I will keep all backers updated as to what is happening!

Pins not enough for you?! How about some extra goodies! As the campaign progresses, I will release more items to make your pledge extra special. First up, how about some knitwear to make your hoard EXTRA cosy?!
Made of 100% acrylic in the UK, these knitted jumpers are super comfy. The pattern is knitted into the piece, so you'll never have to worry about fading print. Buttons on the final cardigans will be coloured to match those in the piece. This is not fast fashion! Each piece is responsibly sourced and made right here in the United Kingdom.

Each cardigan has a care labelled included, machine washable at 30 degrees, do not tumble dry and iron on reverse using a cool setting!
Model is wearing a L-XL and is a UK size 20. To find your size, grab a sweater you already own and fits well, lay it flat and measure as per the sizing chart image. Measurements are in centimetres! If you are between two sizes or prefer a baggier fit, I would recommend sizing up.
I cannot exchange sizes for international customers, due to the price of shipping. If you need a different size, you can return your jumper for a refund and purchase another (stock dependant), return shipping is at the expense of the buyer.
UK customers can exchange sizes and are responsible for return shipping costs.

Please note - due to their weight cardigan shipping is more expensive than the prices shown in the shipping section.


Oh no! It looks like the dragons have STOLEN the themes for my pin club this month! 

Every month, I design two pins for my club on my website and Patreon and this month's themes have been stolen by dragons!

To celebrate the success of this campaign, the Fine Art Hoarder has been designed to fit seamlessly into the Tiny Hoarders collection. Inspired by a traditional dragon hoard of finery and gold, this guy has also stolen the Girl With Pearl Earring!

Our other pin club theme running at the moment is Stained Glass Silhouettes - and of course the flower for this design HAD to be the Snap Dragon.

Subscribe to my club to receive one or more pins every month, shipped to your door! You get to choose which designs you would like and receive special member benefits such as discount codes and early access to new releases. Club designs are also member exclusive for 6 months - some don't ever get released to the public.

Sign up before the end of April on Patreon and before the 9th of May on my website!
