Intro


Spread Happiness


Hi! I'm Saira of Pinfeathers Pin Shoppe! I've been designing pins for several years and have received the honor of bringing some of these ideas to life! It's an amazing feeling when you get to hold in your hand a physical copy of what was once just a fleeting thought in your mind, and I'm back to do it all over again.

You can find my Etsy shop here, and all other socials here.

It all started with a Strawberry Dragon back in 2021. since then I've been slowly adding to my roster new dragons and their variants, and this time, I've got a a large catalog of pins to bring to life!

I hope you will love them as much as I do!

The Pins

From the mystic forests come the fabulous Fae dragons! Shy, dainty, but mischievous!





Next are the majestic Sea dragons! A playful breed that love to chase and collect shiny objects!



While technically not a dragon by definition, these Wyverns would adore being curled up beside you!





And who wouldn't want a faithful companion on your quest for adventure? Trusty sword not sold separately!

Exclusive Pintopia Collab Pin



Our exclusive Pintopia 2 pin of this year features a spell-happy dragon casting our favorite spell! To obtain this pin, back any one dragon from here and check out this gorgeous campaign from the lovely Pinsomnia Designs, and back any one pin (if you're able to pick only one, that is ^_~)



Once both projects have reached their respective funding goal, the Fireball pin as well as Pinsomnia Designs freebie pin will be free to every backer!

Early Bird Special~!


If you back within the first 48 hours, we will also throw in one free fruity dragon sticker! (That's up to 3 freebies if you back Dreamy Dungeons and both campaigns fully fund)

Shipping

Shipping fee will be collected separately from the pledge after the campaign ends. Yes, this means your credit card will be charged twice. Once for your pledge for the pins/ stickers, once for shipping fee. Here is the estimated shipping cost for each country:
 
  • United States - $4, comes with tracking
  • Canada - $10, comes with tracking
  • International - As shipping fees changes all the time for international packages, please contact me for an accurate estimate for the country I need to ship the package to. 

 
CA and International Backers
- Backers are responsible for tax/custom fees.  

*****I will not be taking any EU and UK pledges through Backerkit due to the VAT law. If you are interested in these pins, please DM me and I can create a pre-order on Etsy for you with the backerkit price! Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

Timeline and Risks

Estimated Timeline


April 28th: Campaign Ends
Mid-May: Funds Received
Mid-May - August: Pin Production
September: Pins Arrive
February: Pins Graded and Shipped Out

Please note that we expect shipping to begin in February but this does not mean you will receive your package immediately  after shipping begins. Depending upon the total amount of backers, shipping carriers, and available help, the fulfillment period can last anywhere from one month to nine months (it averages between 1-3 months). We make every attempt to ship out your packages asap. There is also the possibility that shipping could begin before February 2025. 


Risks and Challenges


SHIPPING TIMES VARY I hope to send all the mail out as fast as I can. USA usually takes about 1 week, international can take up to 3 weeks to get to you.

QUALITY I AM ONE PERSON and I will get packages out as fast as possible. Expect at least 5 months after the pins have arrived to me for processing, as I have to inspect, package and sort all pins one by one.

REMAKES There is the possibility that one batch of pins end up flawed enough to have to ask for remakes, which will add additional time. SHOULD COMPLICATIONS ARISE, I shall update the progress here so that everyone is on the know. I strive to get the best quality pins sent out to all backers.

PRODUCTION These are (hopefully) a LOT of pins getting made! It might take around 3-4 months lead time to get it done.

PIN COLORATION Pins colors don't always come out exactly like they appear, but pretty close! So if you have a keen eye, please remember that pins are technically handmade items. I use Pantone colors to match as close to the artwork as possible!

Important Info!

Early Bird Pledge Levels
Early Bird pledge levels are only available for the first 48 hours of the campaign! Early bird backers will receive one free Fruity Dragon sticker with their pledge level. The free sticker can be selected from any of the 11 featured designs.

Manufacturing
I'll be using trusted manufacturers that I've worked with before, but occasionally things happen and there are minor delays in manufacturing.

I will always be upfront with backers along the way. I will disclose any setbacks, delays, and any other pertinent updates.

It's important to understand that this is a crowdfunded campaign. Crowdfunded campaigns are often subject to delays due to unforeseen circumstances. Please also understand that money pledged to a crowdfunded campaign is a donation or investment. This is not an online store and you will not immediately receive your rewards after pledging.

Please note that minor changes may occur in production, and that the images presented here are my mock up designs. There is a possibility of slight changes in color and size in the physical item.

Pin Grades
Pinfeathers Pin Shoppe offers two grades of pins, First Grade, and B Grade. First Grade pins are the only pins offered in crowdfunded campaigns. Our pins are handmade and may have minor cosmetic imperfections.
Examples of First Grade imperfections are as follows, but not limited to:
-
Small buff marks, scuffs, or scratches on metal/enamel
- Small specks, pores, or bubbles anywhere on the pin
- Slightly low or uneven fills
- Slightly misaligned screenprinted details (for pins with screenprinting)
- Slight variations in the distribution of glitter
- Slight defects in text (this is usually only in pins with small text)
We want to make you aware that these First Grade pins may have small imperfections, but 99% of the time, these imperfections are non-existent or not noticeable.

An important note about color and size.
It is crucial to understand that while we have made pins before, the pins in this campaign have not yet been manufactured. The designs you see on this page are mockups, which means the final product may vary in color and size. From our experience, the majority of our pins turn out looking like the mockup design.

Different computers, phones, and other devices have different screen settings which means coloration may vary between screens. We use a Pantone Solid Coated book to choose the colors for our designs. The manufacturers use those Pantone numbers to know which colors to mix and apply where, however, looking at a Pantone swatch on paper, is different than looking at a Pantone color in enamel.
Each mockup has a rough estimate of what the size will be. Our sizes are either specifying the general height or width of the pin. The actual size of the physical product may vary.

Glitters, translucent enamel, sand blasted enamel, pearl enamel, and metal plating colors may vary on the physical product.

Refunds or Exchanges
After the campaign has ended, you will have ample time to make your design selections in your BackerKit survey. You will be notified before surveys are locked down and any add-ons are charged. Once your order is locked down, we have a no refunds or exchanges policy. The only time we will issue a refund or replacement, is in extenuating circumstances, or if your pin arrives damaged (please read the section on pin grades to determine if your pin is damaged). If you believe your pin was damaged in transit, please reach out to us and attach photos of the damaged pin.

Forfeiture of Rewards
Once project shipping is completed backers will be notified via a campaign update. This campaign update will have a final survey completion date. If your survey is not completed, and your shipping costs not paid by the completion date, you will forfeit your pledge payment and rewards. We will not fulfill forfeited rewards and pledge levels after the completion date.

Rubber Backs vs. Locking Backs
Each pin from our campaign will come with rubber backs, but we highly recommend purchasing locking backs. If you choose to adhere your pin to a jacket, bag, or other item, with a rubber back, and it falls off, we will not replace the missing pin.

Shipping Policies
Please visit the shipping section to read about these policies.

Lost or never received packages
We make every attempt to get your package from our facility to your home. Packages for this campaign will come with a tracking number. Regardless of tracking numbers, sometimes packages are lost in the mail. We will notify backers with an update when the project is near completion. If you have not received your package by the completion of the shipping process, you will have an extended period of time to contact us about a missing package.
