The Story ♾️

Hi, I'm Adam STATION.

Last Fall, we Kickstarted an Infinity of Ships, a toolkit for creating wild and wondrous spaceships for tabletop roleplaying games and sci-fi world building, with ship illustrations by Rob Turpin (aka thisnorthernboy).

Now we've partnered with Liz Kaneda (of Snarky Company) to translate Rob's designs into high-quality pins that will look great on your jump pack, spacesuit, scrapper overalls, captain's uniform, or street wear.

Here are a few of the pins, with more details below!






During this campaign, you'll be able to purchase any number of ship pins from unlocked designs. 

See "The Pins" below, for the pins we have planned (and more to come).

See "How it Works" below, for details on how the campaign works.

Thanks for helping us continuing our journeys into the stars.

xoxo
Adam

Collab Variants 🪄

Through the course of the campaign, the Pintopia community has provided tons of inspiration, encouragement (and votes!) for interesting pin variants that we have been thrilled to create in collaboration with Liz from the Snarky Company.

Each of these individual pins will be available to include in all pledge tiers, or together with a unique custom backing card (and a little discount to boot!).

Just Ken Variants
 
For those who need more Kenergy, we added the Rival and Villain Ken variants, and combined them in the "We're Just (Three) Ken(s)" collection.

Rival, Beach, and Villain Ken Spaceships



Fuck Around and Find Out Variants

Our favorite mischievous twin spaceships, the Fuck Around and Find Out, garnered the most votes for a ship to get variants. In the follow-up voting for specific variant ideas, Daft Punk and Calvin and Hobbes rose to the top. (And Liz couldn't help herself and made a bonus SpongeBob and Patrick variant!)

How It Works 🔧

During the campaign you can pledge into any of the open pledge levels. Your money won't be withdrawn from your payment method until the end of the campaign. 

Once the campaign ends you will be charged for the cost of your pledge level only (shipping costs are paid later within your survey). Roughly 3-4 weeks after the campaign ends, you will then receive a BackerKit survey to choose your designs, pay shipping fees, and add your shipping address. In your survey, there will be an add-ons section where you can add extra items, such as stickers, locking metal backs, or additional pins. Add-ons are entirely optional.

Once the campaign is over you will have a three week window to fill out your survey. After the three week window, we will collect design quantities and send them to the manufacturer. You can still fill out your survey outside of the three week window, but any surveys submitted after the deadline are not guaranteed to receive their design choices. Pledges are fulfilled in the order that surveys are submitted. We will keep in contact and post updates about when to expect your survey, how to find it, and the submission deadline.

Even if you are familiar with pledging to a crowdfunded campaign please read the "Important information to know" section.

Add-Ons 🌟

How do add-ons work?
In this section you can view the optional items that can be purchased as add-ons along with your pledge.

There are two options when it comes to adding 'add-on' items to your pledge:

1) You can navigate to the add-ons tab on this campaign page. If you choose to add an item to your pledge, when the campaign ends you will be charged for your pledge level and the add-on item. When you receive your survey the add-on item you purchased along with your pledge will automatically be in your order items list. Please note that some add-ons come with additional shipping costs due to size or weight. You won't pay those additional shipping fees at the time of your pledge, they will be paid within your survey post campaign.

2) You can choose just a pledge level, which you will be charged for when the campaign ends. When you receive your post campaign survey there will be an add-ons section that contains all the add-ons you see here. You can then add additional items in your survey and pay for those items and your shipping costs within your survey.

Please note that not all the available add-ons will appear here on the campaign page. Occasionally, add-on items are designed during or after the campaign and only make an appearance within the add-ons section of your survey.

Display Board and Space Pins 🪐

In collaboration with Dragon Woodshop we're pleased to offer this gorgeous, limited edition, Spaceship Pin Display. This display board can be added as an add-on item during the campaign, in the add-ons section of your survey, or you can also find it at a discounted price in the "All In" pledge tiers. Display all your spaceship pins on this beautiful pin board, crafted from laser cut wood and felt.



Available in black or maple.
 


We also have two sets of cosmic pins to decorate your space field!


.5", silver plated, glitter, in black or color.

An Infinity of Ships ♾️

If you want a copy of An Infinity of Ships, you can add it to your pledge at the pre-order price, just $29 for the hardcover and $18 for the instant starship card deck.

You can explore our Kickstarter campaign page to learn more about the project.

Shipping 📦

IMPORTANT INFO - Shipping costs will be charged to you AFTER the campaign and SEPARATELY through your BackerKit survey.

For prior Infinity of Ships Kickstarter backers, there will be an option to combine your pins with your Infinity of Ships products, to save on shipping. This will be available through the BackerKit survey after the campaign ends.

Below are the shipping rates for different regions. These flat rates apply only to your pledge level, and are subject to changes depending upon shipping rates when the campaign ends. If there is a shipping increase it will only be between $1-$2.

SHIPPING FEES for PLEDGE LEVELS 
  • United States - $6 / $15 for All In Tier
  • Canada - $18 / $30 for All In Tier
  • UK / EU - $23 / $42 for All In Tier
  • Australia and New Zealand - $26 / $48 for All In Tier 
  • Elsewhere  - $30 / $50 for All In Tier 

Add On Item Shipping Fees - You will have the opportunity to add on extra items in your post campaign survey. Add on items may come with additional shipping costs depending on the final weight of your order.

All orders are shipped through USPS and come with tracking. International backers are responsible for their own countries VAT or import taxes/fees.

When shipping internationally we will make every effort to properly fill out customs forms. We will abide by your countries customs and shipping laws, which means we will denote the package value as the cost of your order, and mark this as merchandise. Please do not ask us to change the value of your package, or mark it as a gift. We are not responsible if your country holds your package and requires extra payment to release it.

Important Information to Know ❗️

By pledging to this campaign you are stating that you understand all the below information and agree to our terms and conditions.

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 extra pin with their pledge level. The free pin can be selected from any of the unlocked designs.

Backer Responsibility
As a backer you are responsible for completing your survey and paying shipping fees within a timely manner, to receive your rewards. As creators we are only able to communicate with backers through project updates and reminder emails (email correspondence will be sent to the email on file for your pledge). As a backer it is your responsibility to check and read project updates, and to check for survey emails. If you fail to stay updated and do not complete your survey, you could forfeit your rewards. (Read more about reward forfeiture below)

Manufacturing
Liz from Snarky Company is handling the production of our pints, using trusted manufacturers that she's 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
We offer 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 immediately 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 with 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

Lost or never received packages - Forfeiture of rewards
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. If you do not contact us within that extended period of time about a lost or never received package, you will forfeit your rewards and we will not provide a refund or re-ship your rewards.

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. We do offer locking backs through our add-ons section in your survey.

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