What are your edition sizes?
We have 3 types of editions.
A limited number is produced, we announce edition size with the sales post and in the description in our shop.
These editions are fan favorites that have more than one release or are only released once a year. These type of editions are based on a large amount of interest and the artists discretion.
Our first three artist releases and most of our in house designs are unlimited. At this time our unlimited pins have less than 500 each in circulation but are available for wholesale or re-release.
How do I get these backers off?
All of our pieces come with locking spring loaded backers and occasionally they are on too tight and can be difficult to remove. To remove these stubborn backers, hold the lip of the base with your thumb while simultaneously pulling up on the spring loaded part, then release your thumb. If it is still not budging wiggle it while holding the base and pulling up on the spring loaded part.
The top of my backer came off how do I remove the rest without damaging the post?
This is a rare occurrence but it does happen. In this situation it is easy to remove the rest of the backer without damaging your post. You will need needle nose pliers with a cutting edge to clip the sides of the casing. Clip once then rotate and clip a second time, use the nose of the pliers to remove the spring. Once the spring is out it is easy to pull off the rest of the casing with the pliers without damaging the post. Don't try to force it! If you are having trouble please contact us and we will link you to a video that shows how to remove them.
