This is a retired Tier which uses OLD shipping rates which have since gone up. To reward those who have supported me for a long time I still keep this Tier up so they can enjoy the old rates. Don't pledge to this if you're a new Patron or I will cancel your pledge.

About

Welcome to Pin Me Up, Grumpy Gryphon's (that's me!) Patreon where I will create monthly pins, share artwork and more!

May Pins - Spring time Kitsune



If you pledge any time in May you can choose between these two kitsune. Be it Spring or Rain, these foxes are prepared!

The pins measure 4 cm tall, are hard enamel and are black nickel plated.

Please note that the pins won't be shipped until the first week of June.

Monthly Pin
Every month I will be creating a new enamel pin design. The design for the upcoming month will be revealed at the end of the previous month.

Patreon pins will not be made directly available to the public after the month ends (I want to give my Patrons some exclusivity!). It will be AT LEAST a month before it's made available on the public store.

Once we hit 350 USD we will have 1 limited edition pin (quantity of this limited edition run will vary between 50 and 100) which will never be reprinted. This pin will not be made available to non Patrons for at least 2 months after the Patreon month for it ends.

Artwork
It's not just pins here anymore - I also post high res versions of my art here. In some cases I even share the line art only so people can print it out and use it for colouring.

If you're just here for the art, there's a special Tier for that too!

Patron Perks!
You guys are helping me make a living and I would like to give you some extra perks in return as thanks! 

  • Pin Club Members only: Free shipping on pin, sticker, badge and charm purchases from our shop (provided they can be combined with the monthly pin order) 
  • Gain access to the Patreon exclusive store which offers pins for lower prices and gives you access to previous Patreon pins before non Patrons!
  • Special freebies like extra pins and goodies when I run pin related Kickstarters

What if you don't like the monthly pin(s)?
I've given this a lot of thought because not every pin design is going to be a hit with everyone. Rather than forcing people to cancel their pledge I would like to offer another option in the form of a list of alternative pins to choose from! 

This list will be revealed at the same time as the new monthly pin design. 

The pins on this list can be any of my previously designed pins (fan art and original art) as well as pins from previous months. Yep, that includes limited edition designs as well ;) 

How do I go about choosing which pin I would like?
Every month I create a pinned post on which you can reply to let me know which pin you would like to receive. Additionally I will also send all Patrons a message so if you prefer to let me know your choice in private this can be done too!

Risks
Enamel Pin making is expensive and because of this there is a chance that I may be forced to pause the pin club if there are too few patrons or I have a bad run. I aim to have the pins fully produced before the new month rolls around but unfortunately manufacturing doesn't always go smoothly.

Of course I will keep everyone up to date if this were to happen and will continue to offer full transparency. Sometimes pin production may be delayed causing me to have to mail pins out late. Again, I will be sure to keep people up to date.



Goals
$450 - reached! per month
Fancy stickers! I'll be upgrading the stickers you receive to outdoor grade waterproof vinyl! Sometimes they will even have special finishes like glitter or holo.
