Campaign Description

Hop Flop is my small business that is my world of design and illustration in the form of paper goods and accessories. It has been a dream of mine to illustrate and create a full set of illustrations of all the Chinese Zodiac animals and bring it to life into hard enamel pins. Ive always re-invested all that I make back into the business, but the cost of 12 enamel pins all in one go is not financially possible at the moment. Im hoping youll help me bring it to life by supporting this campaign by purchasing one of the rewards.

Our Story

I've always loved creating and illustrating, so my dive into illustrating paper goods and accessory was a given and with a sudden loss of a day job in 2017, it was time for me to live my passion. It's been over 10 years since I started Hop & Flop because it started off as a hobby on the weekends and now I'm able to say, "I love my job!". It has been wonderful connecting with all the amazing makers through my wholesale retailers, in-person markets and freelance design work. You can find all that I offer at www.hopnflop.ca and my freelance portfolio work at jennychan.myportfolio.com.

It's not always easy with everything that I make in the business getting re-invested back into it, but I make it work and I have no regrets. In my family culture, we make it a big deal to try to make it out there all on our own and sometimes I forget that it's okay to ask for help, which is where I am today with this passion project.

Why Make Zodiac Animal Pins?

I grew up in a very traditional Asian family. The Chinese Zodiac has always been a fun thing I saw everytime my family went out for dim sum on the weekends because our placements at the restaurant always showed the zodiac. I would compare the descriptions with my siblings and even at large family and relative outings, with all my cousins. 

So, it's been always in the back in my mind that I wanted to create something magical with it. I've always loved identifying myself as the goat (or sheep) in the zodiac. As a hard enamel pin, it would be a perfect keepsake to show others, but also to keep a little history close to my heart. 

The zodiac also ties in with our Lunar New Year's because each year puts one of the animals in the spotlight. The calendar paved the sequence of the Chinese zodiac animals and can be traced far back in Chinese history.

Why Donate to Our Campaign

As a small business owner, a lot of time and investment is put into it, but there are times where we have to stick to a budget. Everything I do for Hop & Flop is a re-investment to push the business further, but there isn't a lot of extra budget to work on new projects. 

In this case, the cost of getting 12 zodiac animal pins made is completely out of my budget and I'm hoping for some help. The rewards I'm offering will help mainly cover the manufacturing cost to bring my passion project to life. It will likely be a limited edition set, but if there's enough interest I could continue making the pins. I just need the initial help.

Our Goal

I'm looking to raise $4,000 to help cover the manufacturing cost of the 12 enamel pins. Cost includes: mold fee, materials, pin backing, shipping as well as duties and taxes. It may not seem like a lot, but my small business doesn't have the cash flow to cover such a large sum in one go.

FAQs

What are enamel pins and what will these be made of?

Enamel pins are metal pins with a backing, so you can pin it to your jacket, hat, backpack, shoulder bag or any other fabric where you want to showcase your love of the illustration. Each pin is molded into a mixed metal piece and these ones that I plan to make will be hard enamel pins, so it will be beautifully smooth and glossy. I also always use a deluxe metal backing that keeps it secure (so you don't ever lose it!).

When will I get my pin?

I've put an estimated date of January 17th of when I will begin shipping out pins. There is a process of proofing the pins even before it goes into production and sometimes during production there could be delays that is out of my control. My aim is to have the pins for January 17, 2022 to begin shipping it out to you in hopes that you get it before the Lunar New Year's begins in February.

What type of shipping will you use? How long would shipping take?

I am a small business entrepreneur, so at this moment I currently use Canada Post for all my shipping. All the rewards in this campaign are small or flat, so the shipping service I will be using for all of them will be letter mail, which does not have tracking. If you prefer to have tracking, please email me directly after your purchase at: info@hopnflop.ca and I can provide an estimate for the additional shipping charge to ship your reward via parcel. Domestic letter mail shipping across Canada will take approximately between 2 to 8 business days. United States letter mail shipping will take approximately between 2 to 3 weeks (business days). International letter mail shipping will take approximately between 3 to 4 weeks (business days).

If you don't reach your goal, will the pins still be made?

Unfortunately no. This campaign is All or None. Also keep in mind, you won't be charged until the end of the campaign only when we've reached our goal of $4,000.
