Update with Pictures and Manufacturer Timeline
about 19 hours ago – Fri, May 07, 2021 at 01:56:36 PM

Hello Everyone!

The manufacturer has sent us more pictures, this time of some of the pins that are finished and ready! There has been a slight delay due to screen printing taking longer than estimated, but everything should be complete in a week, and then *probably* a week after that I will receive the pins and send them out to everyone! I apologize the manufacturing has taken longer than expected, I was not anticipating needing to order more than 2,000 pins haha. You can see some of the pictures below of a few of the pins. These pictures are from the factory so they are a bit blurry and low resolution, but I will take nicer ones when I get them! (as a side note, you can see that the Leo pin is on the Taurus backer card. I have made the manufacturer aware and they are fixing it!)

Small Update
17 days ago – Tue, Apr 20, 2021 at 09:23:11 PM

Hello Everyone!

I wanted to give an update as to where we are and what we are waiting for. So far we have received the following:

  • Art Prints
  • Stickers
  • Boxes
  • Tissue Paper
  • Other misc. shipping stuff

We are just waiting on the pins! We have a small update on those as well! please see the below images of some of the pins. If you are not familiar with the process of how hard enamel pins are made the images may look funky, but that's ok! They look a little overfilled because they will be smoothed out and polished to have a smooth finish and then it goes on to gold plating. They are almost done! The last image is of the backing cards they will come on. At the very end you can see all the boxes stacked up against the wall.

Also I just wanted let everyone know that the shipping labels on the smaller boxes may slightly cover the logo on the front. I was planning on getting smaller labels but the post offices here only allow a certain size and they cannot be any smaller. I thought about putting the labels on the bottom, but I didn't wanted the boxes being flipped upside down too many times. 

Almost 400 boxes ready to go!

Boxes update!

Hello Everyone!

 Boxes are starting to arrive. I have received the first few boxes for the Zodiac Collector's set and wanted to show you all what they look like! 

Since I do not have the pins yet (More pictures coming this week hopefully!) this post is more to show you what to expect if you ordered either the Collector's set, or a 13 in board.

Inside will be recyclable paper shreds for padding, the pins you've ordered, and any stickers or art prints you've ordered. If you ordered the Collector's set you will receive all of those as chosen in your survey.

Early Look at Pins, and Charging Cards
about 1 month ago – Wed, Mar 24, 2021 at 09:32:48 PM

Quick update for everyone: I have received some pictures of the pins! They have not been gold plated yet, so this is a very early look. 

Also, Backerkit has started charging cards, so please be on the lookout for this! If your card is declined or something comes up, please let me know.  I will be re-trying declined cards in a few days.

Hello Everyone!

I will be finalizing the order totals today. I hope you all are as excited as I am to see everything!

I have received the stickers and will post a few pictures below. They turned out really great and I'm really happy with them! Pins are in production and in the coming weeks I will have more updates about how they are coming along and when I should be expecting them. If you have not completed your survey, please, please, please message me! there are still about 20 people who haven't filled theirs out.

Here are some of the stickers!
