Shipping Starting Soon!

Hello everyone!  Thanks for waiting; pig shipping is about to begin!  

Before we lock orders and start charging cards, we wanted to share a few updates with you all!

Firstly, we now have photos of pin samples of the last remaining designs from our manufacturer.  Look at all the cute!

Strawberry running pins!
Popcorn pig!
Super Wheek mini pin set

We've also survived our spring shows and they went very well!  As such, we were able to print the shirt design on hoodies!  

Front of hoodie!

Hoodie features an adorable pig on the front left chest; right sleeve has a deluge of cute wheeks down the arm.

Back of hoodie!

Back features the same design as the front of shirt!  

We realize many of you have already got your surveys in- THANK YOU!  You can still edit your surveys and we will be leaving them open through the weekend to accommodate anyone who wishes to add additional add ons.  We'll lock surveys at 6pm on Sunday and will charge cards at that time. 

If your credit card changed during the last month or so, now would be a good time to update it.  You can access your survey anytime through the original survey email you received.  If you have issues editing your survey, please reach out and we'll try to resolve the issue!  Additionally, about 9 people have still not filled out a survey; please keep in mind we will fulfill completed surveys until the end of the year.  So get your survey submitted if you've forgotten!

Shipping will begin for most orders next week.  Please allow us a week to process all orders and preorders.  If you preordered any of the pins we posted today (popcorn, strawberry, super wheek), those orders ship in June.  

Thanks again for your patience!  We look forward to mailing out everyone's piggies!

Surveys out now!
6 months ago – Wed, Mar 22, 2023 at 02:01:13 PM

Hello all!

We have some quick updates for you regarding Pigtato.  Firstly, surveys will be going out now via Backerkit.  You can select the kinds of pigs and pins you want, as well as any additional add on items.  

Forgot what you pledged for?  No problem!  Backerkit makes a handy list of all the items you can expect when you go through the survey.  Example:

Additionally, while we only reached one stretch goal for pins, we've decided to make all the pins!  Plus a surprise new pin set!  Please note, while these new pins have gone into production, they won't ship out until June.  If you order them with other items, your orders will be held until the new pins arrive. 

Let's look at the new pin options!

Brand new! Mini four pin set!

All of these new pins ship in June.  The rest of the items?  Well, they'll be shipping very soon!  Pigs have officially arrived, and the first four pin designs will be coming in the next two weeks!

Pig mountain!
Pigs, as far as the eye can see.

We have 4 large events coming up:  Kawaiikon, Sakura Con, Anime Boston and Sakura Matsuri DC.  We'll be shipping everyone's orders as soon as these events wrap.  Estimated shipping date is currently April 18th.

Thanks again for your patience!  Please be sure to fill out your survey by December 31st, 2023.  After that date, your pledge will be considered as a donation to the campaign.

The gang, reunited at last!

Many thanks,

Amanda & Cari

We did it!
7 months ago – Wed, Mar 01, 2023 at 07:35:02 PM

Today we reached the end of our campaign!  Thank you so much for your support and enthusiasm for Pigtato!  

While we didn’t hit all the stretch goals, we did reach 90 backers and $6644 in funding!  As a thank you, we will go ahead and make the full set of the strawberry running pig pins, as well as the popcorn pig pin.  

We’ll be taking the next two weeks to arrange the remainder of the pin production, as well as set up Backerkit surveys.

We will be sending surveys in 2 weeks, once we’ve received funding from Kickstarter.

In the meantime, we’ll be at Emerald City Comic Con this weekend (booth #11229); come say hi and squish a pig!  

We’ll be handing out Wheek Squad badge ribbons!  Show us your pledge and get a ribbon for your badge!  

Thanks again!  We’ll be updating again when surveys go out!

Goal met! It's Stretch Goal time! :D
8 months ago – Sat, Feb 11, 2023 at 05:18:49 PM

Hello everyone!

We met our initial funding goal this week!  YAY!  Thank you so much for supporting this project (and for giving us the chance to make even more cute piggie merch)!  

Treat Totes

This week, we also received the treat totes!  Here's a small preview!

Drawstring backpack/ tote bag!

The bag is large enough to store both pig and accessories!  It has drawstring straps so you can use it as a backpack, as well as handles if you would prefer to use it as a tote bag. 

Stripey pig observes the bag.

You can also use the bag for grocery runs for actual pig treats.  The design is screen printed on the bag so it will last many uses!

Nice crisp printing!

These bags come free with every tier that contains a pig + food set!  You can also buy it as an add on for $10.

Stretch Goals!

 We can now look forward to unlocking brand new pin designs!  Here's what we can look forward to in the future (hopefully)!  The first few pins all feature the same pig-carrying-treat design in multiple colors.  I hope we can make all the versions to match the plush!

Next design is a happy popcorning pig!  I'll also be leaping for joy if we reach this goal!

We also wish to make our shirt designs in a long sleeve sweater with sleeve printing.  The printing would be in one color, on one sleeve on a Gildan unisex sweater.

Last pin design is a lil baby eating his carrot.  Cronch cronch!

Many cute pins to look forward to!  Thanks again for your enthusiasm and support for Pigtato!  Please be sure to share this with your pig friends so we can reach all the goals!
