50k Pin Status
April 23rd, 2018: All pins have been shipped out! Enjoy!
April 7th, 2018: The manufacturer has started quality checking batches BEFORE shipping them out (thank goodness!). The quality checker saw something he didn't like and sent the 50k pin back to be remade. It's unfortunate, but it is MUCH better than me receiving the pins on my doorstep and finding them to all be defected! As of right now, I'm NOT planning on adding new items to my shop until the 50k pins are done and shipped out. Manufacturer still says they should be done relatively quickly!
It's highly unlikely, but IF I don't have them shipped out by May, I may open an Instagram poll to see if people who have ordered 50k pins would be interested in the chance to add new shop items (new sticker, new pins, new tattoo sheets) to their existing orders. This would at least give people a chance to add new items and save on shipping, but I'll only consider it if we get close to the end of the month!
Of course, thank you so much for your patience. If you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me!
March 30th, 2018: As expected, the screenprinting details on the 50k pin and backlog of pins that the factory built up during the Chinese New Year Holiday caused production to go a little slower than usual. According to my manu, the 50k pins have finished their regular hard enamel pin production and are now at the print factory for those final screenprinting details! I am hoping to receive a factory photo of the finished pin next week!
March 1st, 2018: Manufacturer says it will take three and a half weeks as of Feb 22nd. Ever the skeptic, I still think it will be around the end of March or beginning of April– but it sounds like mid March is the best case scenario! Woohoo!
February 21st, 2018: Pin will be sent to manufacturer for production (manufacturer has already approved of the design, so no changes to the design are projected).
January 29th, 2018: Pin has been listed for Presale, and will remain open until February 13th, 2018 at Midnight (PST)
