So I know most people following me are doing so because of the Pony Creator, but MLP is only one of the fandoms I'm tangentially involved in, and I'd like to talk about another: Portal
Here's the short version: I collect pins. I have MLP pins, Homestuck pins, X-Men pins, Harry Potter pins, video game pins, etc. My ideal goal is to have pins representing most of my fandoms.
However! There are no Portal pins, which is sad because I like Portal a lot. So, inspired by the fan made MLP pins
, I thought, "Maybe I should make my own Portal pins!"
What I've learned is that it's only cost efficient to buy pins like that in bulk. What I'm trying to figure out is if I created a set of Portal pins, would anyone else want them too, and be willing to pay for them? I really just want to cover the manufacturing cost, which would only be a few dollars per pin if I order enough bulk designs.Click here to see 10 pin concepts I've come up with.
The concepts aren't finalized yet, but that's roughly what I want to do. The pins would probably be about 1 inch long, made with soft enamel.
If you think this is something you might be interested in, please comment here or on the pin designs. Expressing interest isn't a commitment to buy anything! I'm just trying to figure out if this is worth pursing.
Also, if you know a good place with a lot of video game aficionados to spread the word, please do! I would be very appreciative.
