FanSets PINsider Blog | October 2020

Hello and welcome to another month of exciting FanSets news and announcements! My name is Joe and there are tons of exciting new pins and licenses to talk about so let's jump in! Up first, NEW PINS!

It's a very exciting month as we release the highly anticipated Star Trek Voyager 25th Anniversary Master Set. They are available right now for pre-order and will be shipping out by the end of the month. This highly exclusive set is very limited, only 125 sets have been made. Each set of 10 pins are all uniquely numbered out of 125. We are very excited to bring the full set to you in a black frame that is very similar to our old frames. The Master Set also includes the beautiful Star Trek Voyager 25th Anniversary pin that we launched earlier this year bringing the total pins in the set to 11. Another big change is that we are launching this set at a new price point of $180.00 making it the most affordable Anniversary Master Set ever.

Our customers that have had the same numbered set from previous master sets already have their Voyager number reserved. If you do not purchase your Master Set by October 10th when the pre-order ends, you will forfeit you number and it will be made available to the general public. We are not accepting new reserve requests. Only customers who have bought every master set have their number reserved. Sets will ship starting with the lowest number as orders are received. 

The fun doesn't stop there. I am personally very excited to launch our first line of pins from the Hanna-Barbera Universe today. That's right, everyone's favorite gang of meddling kids and their dog are available, right now. The first wave of Scooby Doo! pins are here and you can get the complete set of all 6 pins today and save money as a bundle for $34.95. We will be releasing them individually as well. Freddy, Daphne, and Scooby are available today with Shaggy, Velma, and the Mystery Machine releasing on October 15th at $6.95 each.

Normally I just list the new pins (which I still will) but there are so many cool ones to talk about today that I think they need a little more intro than just their name on a list. Speaking of intros... Possibly baddest villain in the DC Universe, The Anti-Monitor, has arrived in pin form! I can't begin to describe how absolutely incredible this pin is. It is a massive 4 inches tall that commands a menacing presence when towering over our standard size 2 inch MicroJustice pins. As someone who absolutely loved the Crisis on Infinite Earths comics, I have been lobbying to get this pin for quite some time (now I just have to convince Lew and John to make  a Starro in the same size.... wink wink). 

Yes, that is correct. Starting right now you can Earlybird Pre-Order all three of the Star Trek Lower Decks Deltas releasing this year. We are doing something special for those of you who continually support our Delta line and are offering the set as an Earlybird Pre-Order. What does that mean? It means that if you pre-order any of these deltas you will get it shipped a full 30 days earlier than the regular street date. This pre-order guarantees the you will not miss out on these pins when they release.

FanSets Delta Program

Welcome to the start of FanSets Earlybird Pre-order Delta program. We are diving heavily into Star Trek deltas and will be doing full size delta pins as well as full size delta magnets and doing a pin mini version of each delta as well! These will each go on an earlybird pre-order at the beginning of a month thru the middle of that same month or to sell-out of the initial order quantity, whichever comes first. The product will ship approximately 45 days following the closing of the pre-book period to all those that pre-booked. Anyone that pre-ordered is GUARANTEED to get their product at that first shipping from the first production run. If any product from the first production run did not sell out at pre-order it will become available for sale on the FanSets website 30 days AFTER the initial shipping date. So, anyone that pre-orders is not only guaranteed their product from the first run, they also get it 30 days before it becomes available to the general public (more than 30 days in the case of a sell-out).

Face Masks have pretty much become a key piece of apparel for most people and now most clothing companies offer a face mask as part of their apparel line. I've always stuck with paper masks because, for me, they were the least irritable and most breathable. I tried on some cloth ones but they pulled on my ears too much and they were not very comfortable. For something that most of us have to wear every day it is important to make sure that it is comfy. I've been working for the last several months to find a cloth mask that is breathable, comfortable, and safe. After months of testing and multiple samples, I am so happy to finally reveal the FanSets PinMask. It is a soft polyester mask that is breathable, comfortable, and safe. Oh, it also has a pocket to display FanSets pins... The front layer features the bold FanSets blue with the off centered FanSets shield logo, leaving room on both sides of the mask to display one or two of your favorite pins. The back layer is a breathable polyester that separates the front layer and the pocket where the pins go. At first, I thought wearing pins on the mask would feel uncomfortable and that I would be able to feel the back clutches rub against my face, however, that is not the case. Because of the spandex woven strings, the mask is not too tight and I don't feel the pins at all, and neither will you. We are making 100 of this Limited Edition Mask. Once we sell out there will be no more available. Pre-Orders are live right now and will guarantee you don't miss out. Orders shipping at the end of October.

Oh, and if you post a picture in your FanSets PinMask and tag it with #FanSetsPinMask you will automatically be entered in to win a $100.00 gift card to the FanSets website.

Some of you may not know but we also have an amazon store that we sell from. Reviews are critical to the success of a product on amazon and if you have purchased any of our Star Trek Deltas, I am asking you to take the time and leave a quick review on amazons website. You did not need to purchase the product from amazon to leave a review. Having good reviews helps us IMMENSELY and lets us bring more pins to you! It can be as simple as selecting 5 stars if you do not have the time to type out a review.

I can't stress enough how important reviews are to having our products show up in front of more shoppers on amazon. If you left us a review, thank you so much. It really is making a huge difference in helping our little company grow.
