Thank you all so much for your patience! The pins arrived this morning, and what I've seen so far has me very excited. They were the last piece I was waiting on, and arguably the most important! I'm SO glad they're here.
So what's next? I'll be counting and giving them a general quality check before I can send them out, this might take a little while because of the sheer NUMBER of pins, so expect a couple of weeks before orders start to actually ship. I also need time to put together the packaging, IE, putting pins on their backing boards and putting together sticker packs. It's going to take me a while, as I am a single person.
My original goal was to have these in your hands before Halloween, and that's looking very reachable right now.
On another note, I am still missing a good handful of Backerkit surveys. If you do not answer your survey, I can't send you anything; it's as simple as that. Please answer them! I want to send you goodies!
Print Proofs and Stickers!

I wanted to give you all a quick update. I'm starting to see things roll in on my end. I just received my order of stickers, and they look *amazing*; I'm super happy with how they turned out. I also just got in the proofs for the prints. There are a few extremely minor things I'd like to correct on the prints, but otherwise, they're shiny and look incredible.
I am about to start charging cards for shipping, and as SOON as the enamel pins make it to me, I will start sending them out. I'm still missing survey answers from a good handful of you, and I cannot stress this enough: I *cannot* send you anything without an answered survey. You *will not* get anything if you do not answer.
I'll check back soon!

Just a couple of announcements!
First, surveys should be in everyone's inboxes. I had a minor hiccup setting them up, but now everything looks solid, and should (fingers crossed) run smoothly.
Second, more exciting news: I've been talking to my manufacturer, and I have proofs! Here's a little looksy at what's happening behind the scenes:

I wanted to give you a brief update on my progress with everything. Reward surveys should be going out soon. Please answer them as quickly as possible so I can get an accurate count for my manufacturer. You can pick your designs, as well as add additional add-ons through Backerkit, this is also where you will be asked to pay for shipping.
I have started communicating with the manufacturer, and so far everything is going right on schedule. :)

I wanted to give you just a little update. First of all, THANK you. This really was such a successful campaign. I love my designs, and I'm so excited I get to make them, and I get to share them with so many people! It's such an honor so, thank you, thank you, thank you, for trusting me to bring these to life.
Second, I wanted to let you know what the next steps are. I am going to be working on setting up backer surveys next week, at which point you'll be able to choose your pins and add-ons, and the shipping costs will be totaled! Once all of those are in, and I have a rough idea of how many of each pin to make, I will be sending my files off to the manufacturer. My goal is to have everything finished and shipped out by mid-September, and as of right now, that is looking very doable.
Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions you might have, and I will do my best to get back to you quickly!
