Backer Surveys OUT!
about 1 year ago – Mon, Mar 27, 2023 at 05:37:37 AM

Funds have hit our account & the backer surveys are out! This starts the 30-day countdown for us taking counts and ordering pins, so please get your orders before the 30-day window closes. If no one orders a particular flag/pronoun combination, there is no guarantee that we will stock it. This Kickstarter ended up with something like 400 potential combinations, so we're going to have to be thoughtful about what we order if no one from the Kickstarter wants it. 

Make sure you check the add-ons as well -- we have all of the pin reorders from our previous Kickstarters in our add-ons, so if you missed out on a previous Kickstarter, or know someone who did, grab your Proud to the Bone, 8-bit heart, raised fist, or Faith & Pride pins and be sure you'll get the flag/pin combo you want! Pass on the url :D 

Thank you again for all of your support!

Flag choices update!
about 1 year ago – Fri, Mar 17, 2023 at 07:12:27 AM

Well, posting that update was the right way to get everyone to answer messages. ;D 

Here's the additional flag choice, sponsored by a backer, which will be available in all pronoun choices (including the newly-sponsored ones)!

It's the Intersex Flag! :)

Add-On Pronoun and Flag choices!
about 1 year ago – Fri, Mar 17, 2023 at 06:53:34 AM

In the add-ons, there was an option to sponsor pronoun sets & flags -- three people chose this, two for pronoun sets and one for a flag.

(If you sponsored the flag, please respond to my message -- I need to get guidance from you so I can set up the flag pin!)

Here are the two additional pronoun sets available in all flags -- I've just chosen two random flags to show them off. :) 

Next Steps & Timelines

Next Steps

So here's what's going to happen next with the Kickstarter: 

We will send out backer surveys as soon as possible after the  Kickstarter ends and pledges are processed. If your pledge status shows  as errored (card error, card expired, card declined, etc.) and you do  not fix the issue by one week after the Kickstarter ends, we will  automatically drop your pledge. In this case, you will receive no  rewards. Our backer surveys come from BackerKit, so please make sure you are looking for that, and not a Kickstarter email!

Once surveys are sent out, backers are responsible for answering surveys within 30 days. If you do not answer your survey within 30 days of the survey emails  being sent out, you risk not being able to select the pins you desire;  we will be ordering pins 35 days after the Kickstarter closes, and if  there are no flag/pronoun combinations, especially with neopronoun sets  or sponsored pronouns, we may not offer them. In that case you would  have to select from ordered pins; we will not refund pledges in this case.

Likewise, if you do not answer your survey within  45 days after the Kickstarter ends, we will consider your pledge a  donation and you will receive no rewards. In the past we did not  set firm backer deadlines and that led to people expecting to receive  rewards 2+ years after we finished shipping them, having never answered a  survey and missing or ignoring 25+ emails from us about the matter. We  are extremely communicative about our projects  -- you'll receive multiple emails from us at every stage, so there's no  way that backers won't know the deadlines are approaching.


  • February 7th: Kickstarter begins
  • March 9th: Kickstarter ends
  • 3rd week of March: Backer surveys sent 
  • 3rd week of April: Order placed with pin manufacturer
  • Mid to late May: Receipt of pins, shipping begins
  • June: Domestic backers receive rewards.
  • July: International backers receive rewards.

All of these are our best-guess estimates and we will continue to update if unforeseen delays occur. Our intention is for these items to arrive for domestic backers during Pride Month. :) 


Backers are responsible for all taxes and fees associated with their  packages. We do not collect or remit VAT or any other taxes; these are the responsibility of backers. We will correctly mark all packages as merchandise with an accurately  declared pledge value. We will correctly ignore any requests to mark  packages as "gifts" or with a lower declared value than the pledge  amount.

Domestic Shipping

We ship all domestic packages via tracked USPS First Class Packages. You will receive a tracking number and packages normally arrive within 4-8 business days after you receive the tracking number. You may see packages appear not  to move for a day or two after the number is generated; this is because  it takes us time to pack all backer rewards and get them to the post  office, and then from there it may take a day or so for the packages to  be scanned and begin to move. Package insurance is available as an  add-on.

International Shipping

Packages take anywhere from 2-8 weeks for delivery. In many cases,  tracking ceases when the package leaves the US, but some countries may  provide enhanced tracking. All packages are shipped via USPS  International First Class Package service.

Please note, due to COVID-19 restrictions, NerdyKeppie cannot ship to  all countries. Please check to see if shipping services in your country  are suspended before pledging by checking the USPS's list of International Mail Service Suspensions.

Due to lack of complete shipping insurance and high rate of package  loss, NerdyKeppie is unable to ship to Russia or Commonwealth of  Independent States countries (Armenia,  Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia,  Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia,  Russian Federation,  Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan).  Pledges with  shipping addresses in  these countries will be refunded and you will  receive no rewards.

All of this is a repetition of what was already posted on the Kickstarter itself, so hopefully none of it is a surprise to anyone! 

Next Project

We are already working on our next project, Historical Queers, and plan to launch in early April. We'll send out notifications as we get closer to launch. We plan on running 3-4 Kickstarters a year for pins going forward, and maybe more if we can get our system rolling. :D 

What's next? Historical Queers. <3
