Project Update: Pins Complete!

Hi all! Hope you've been doing well! I wanted to let you know that my supplier notified me that all the pins are complete and will be shipping soon! I wanted to share some additional information as the campaign moves forward

Factory Photos

Here's a drive link with all of the factory photos I was provided of the completed pins! When the pins are in my hands I'll take my own photos. You can view the factory photos HERE

I know in a previous post I outlined that the Velvet Worm pin's printing was not exactly as I expected. Unfortunately after multiple back and forth with my supplier to rectify this issue, the factory was unable to produce the pin exactly how I anticipated. Therefore, I decided to settle on the original print which you can see below

Hopefully this isn't too much of a deal breaker for those looking forward to this pin! I have unlocked all orders if you would like to adjust your selection. If you have any issues with adjusting your order  send me an email to the email below

In addition, I'm still waiting on reprints of the Bee-Chain Keychain and got confirmation from my supplier that the remakes are in the final quality check and should be shipping out soon! 

Timeline and Notes

Here is a rough timeline and some notes to be aware of as we finish up the final stretch of the campaign! 

  • After the pins ship to me, it will likely take 1-2 weeks to arrive to my doorstep. Might be longer or shorter depending on how long customs might take. 
  • Pin grading might take about a week to complete. I'm going to have my partner help me, but I'll have thousands of pins to grade and package for retail.
  • Shipping will take 1-2 weeks to complete. I'll be shipping out orders in batches to streamline the process for both myself and the postal workers who process my orders.
  • Cards will be charged 7/17- Please ensure that you have a valid card on file to make things easier! These card charges will be for any additional funds charged through the post campaign survey. 
  • If there are any major issues when doing grading I'll write an update message and let you all know as soon as possible! 

As always if there are issues with your order in any way, please let me know via email at [email protected]

Email is the best way to contact me. I have it linked on my phone and will get back to you asap. Backerkit doesn't give me proper notifications nor any private messaging. Please let me know your backerkit email so I can lookup your order! 

I think that's it for now! Hope you all have a great rest of your week!
