About


WELCOME TO THE CLUB!

I am Katy Lipscomb, a fine artist primarily working in illustration, painting, and graphic design who is lucky enough to make this passion my profession. Now, I want to make art for you and with you on Patreon! Sign up now to get a little piece of metal art each month in the form of a limited-edition enamel pin!


The Plan 

My Patreon page is aimed to be something that can be sustained year after year with the format evolving as time goes by. I am starting with a Pin of the Month option that will hopefully grow into a few more tiers and options over time.
Patreon is a crowdfunding platform; however instead of pledging to support one specific project or idea, you are helping to support an ongoing creation while also giving you inside-access to that creation. By becoming a monthly patron, you are not only showing your support for me as an artist, you are helping to give me the freedom to create and produce more artwork than ever before.


The Pins

I am sharing a long-time passion of mine: collectable enamel pins. I have been amassing pins ever since I was a little girl when my mother, an Olympian, took me to the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. After growing a sizable collection, I longed to make pins of my very own—and now, thanks to your amazing support, I have finally been able to make that dream a reality!
My pins start inside my sketchbook and then become large-scale illustrations before being transformed into pin designs. I like to think that this special process helps each pin retain some of the unique life of the original drawing. Each design is made in a custom process which allows us to retain an extraordinary level of detail. After line-art, colors, and other details are finalized, each pin is hand manufactured to our custom specifications. Every color in every cell must be filled by hand with enamel, baked in large kilns, and polished flat. After that, we assemble each one onto a unique backer print, bag them up, and ship them out to each of our collectors!


What will you get? 


Different levels of monthly subscriptions are available, depending on how much you wish to contribute as a Patron. For now, there are two levels:

A $1/month donation gets you access to an inside-look at my pin creation process, monthly updates about new designs, as well as exclusive product releases available for purchase before the general public.

A $15* month pledge gets you access to the pin of the month, along with all the benefits of the lower tier. Once a month, you will be mailed an original, high-quality, enamel pin of my own design. Each pin is announced prior to being charged for that month and you are able to skip a month whenever you like!
*For international buyers, a $25 pledge is required to account for trackable shipping outside the United States and and its territories. Failure to select this higher amount may result in your spot being forfeited.


Welcome Package

We love growing our crazy pin family! As a way to introduce you to our pins, we give each new Pin-of-the-Month member ($15 for US/$25 for international) a Welcome Package with your first shipment. The Welcome Package includes:

  • Complimentary starter Enamel Pin like the Dragon, Unicorn, or Phoenix featured below.
  • Printed Backer Card to use as a fun backdrop for your pin collection. Mount it on your pin board to give your creatures a scene to live in!
  • One of our "Pin Guides" to help to show you the ropes of the vast pin-collecting universe.
  • Mystery surprise or add-on!



Pin Details: 

Most of my designs center around animals, nature, fantasy, myths and legends. I use lots of swirling shapes, rainbow galaxies, and small details. All of the pins that we make are made in this signature artistic style and also feature the following:
  • Between 1.25” and 3” at the longest dimension.
  • At least 4 colors with various metal platings (silver, gold, holo, etc).
  • Hard Enamel or Soft enamel with Epoxy coat.
  • All pins are limited edition. This means that a finite number of pins are produced for each design which will not be reproduced after selling out.

  

Patreon Exclusive Content:


The monthly pin subscription provides exclusive pins at a significant discount given only to patrons. I tend to create intricate pins that are priced slightly higher than others on the market because of our level of detail, additional packaging, and innovative processes.

All pins in the monthly pin subscription will be limited edition based on the number of current members. Only after each patron has received their pin will the remaining pins be available on my website or at conventions at full retail price without the Patreon discount. Some months there may be no leftover pins, making them 100% Patreon-exclusive. Once these pins are made, they will never be remade with the Patreon exclusive colors again.

Other exclusive content includes a first look at upcoming pins, process sketches, videos, periodic updates, and more!

How does subscribing and billing work?


Patrons are charged at the beginning of each monthly cycle; usually the 1st or the 2nd of each month. You are not locked in by signing up for Patreon. You can cancel at any time, but do note that if you cancel or wish to “skip a month” you acknowledge that you may be forfeiting your spot for the following month if the membership is full. 

Pins will only be shipped after your card is charged at the 1st of the month and will require a few days of packaging and processing, with the goal of having all pins shipped by the 15th of each month. While we aim to have all pins shipped out by the middle of the month, some months may be shipped later due to production delays. This can be due to lengthened time for the creation of a more complex pin or other unforeseen circumstances. But not to worry! If you have paid for a month, you will receive your pin for that month! 

Please note that when signing up for Patreon, you are signing up for the next month's pin design and rewards. Teasers will be released at the end of each month so that current patrons can decide whether or not they want to stay subscribed for next month.

So what are you waiting for?
Sign up today so we can begin collecting and creating together!

Goals
94 of 100 patrons
Can we reach 100 subscribers?
If we can grow our to over 100 pin-of-the-month members:
  • We will add a $5 "Vinyl Sticker Club" tier to Patreon
  • We will increase the benefits for all pin-pledges to include a monthly sticker!
If you'd like to get an original sticker every month, then help us grow by sharing the club with your friends and family!
