#004 Pin

$10.00

☆ Gold plated hard enamel pin

☆ Approximately 1.15"

☆ Two posts with rubber backings

☆ Engraved backstamp for authenticity

☆ Colors may vary between your monitor's colors and the physical product. Enamel colors may also have slight variations from batch to batch.

☆ Our enamel pins typically come in two grades: Standard (best available) and Seconds (defective). Each pin made by hand and as a result, even Standard pins may have minor surface imperfections. Please read our grading guide for more information.

☆ Flaws on Seconds grade pins are RANDOM. We can't tell you exactly what flaws you'll receive if you order a Seconds pin, and cannot accommodate specific flaw preferences. Order notes asking for the “nicest” Seconds pin will be ignored. Please read our grading guide for details on what makes a Seconds pin before purchasing.

Typical order processing time may range anywhere between 3 - 7 business days, unless otherwise stated (such as a banner on our page advertising that we are away for an event). We aim to get orders out as quickly as possible, but during busy times such as product launches & the holidays, orders will take more time to get through. Launch and holiday processing times may take between 7 - 14 business days. For more information on shipping, please read over our full Shipping & Handling policy.

Please read over our product grading guide before purchasing any items from our shop!

ENAMEL PINS

Pin grading is subjective and varies from maker to maker. Since enamel pins are handmade items, they rarely, if ever, will appear 'perfect'. We kept this in mind while creating our grading scale!

We will always do our best to send out the best pins available! ♡ If there is a major issue, please send photos and an explanation of your problem to shop@blushsprout.com so we can help.

Standard Pins

The highest quality of pin that we offer. Free of major imperfections, but may exhibit the following *minor* imperfections:

  • Superficial marks or scratches on metal or enamel surface
  • Superficial specks, dots, or bubbles on enamel
  • Slightly low or uneven fills
  • Imperfections on the back or side of pin
  • Slight darker flecks of glitter and/or small specks of stray glitter (on glitter pins)
  • Slightly misaligned screenprinting (on screenprinted pins)
  • Other superficial imperfections that are only visible upon very close-up inspection and/or from looking at the pin under certain lighting or from a specific angle.

Seconds Pins

Seconds pins have one or multiple defects exhibited below:
  • Noticeable smudges and/or staining on the metal or enamel surface
  • Oxidization of the metal
  • Noticeable and/or deep scratches that span across the metal and/or enamel
  • Loose posts/backings
  • Very low fills in larger or visually important areas

We do not offer Perfect/Collector's Grade pins, sorry!

BAGS

Due to the handmade nature of the Froggie Ita Bags, there exist a range of cosmetic imperfections. Grading is based only on cosmetic appearance. All bags, regardless of grade, should be fully functional.

The 3 categories of grades are A, B, and C:

A Grade - “Great, Closest to Perfect”

A Grade bags are the highest quality grade offered, and were the standard for our Kickstarter reward fulfillment. There are little to no A Grade bags left in stock post-campaign.
An A Grade bag should have no overall distracting cosmetic imperfections. The worst offending imperfections on an A Grade bag are typically a stray thread along stitching (which can easily be snipped off with scissors), a barely visible surface scratch on the clear panel, or a miniscule speck on the bag body or front panel. These “flaws” are usually so small or insignificant, that they are too difficult to photograph -- but if purchasing, please be aware that they may be present.

B Grade - “Good with Mild/Minor Imperfection(s)”

B Grade bags exhibit a range of cosmetic imperfections that may be visible, but are overall not too harsh or distracting. These bags encompasses a wide variety of imperfections that can be equivalent to several months of wear and tear.
Examples of B Grade imperfections may include, but are not limited to:
- Screenprint: speck on print area, speck or chip of loose ink, mild area of missing print color, faded/not 100% opaque print, slightly uneven or puffy application of print
- Bag Fabric & Texture: small dents or wrinkles caused by pressure during transit overseas, very small “scratch” textures on bag (likely caused by another bag’s hardware shifting against it), mild loose or lifted threads/stitches (should not compromise bag usability), sections where the material was not glued all of the way or were misaligned (such as the lily pad zipper pulls slightly lifting apart from one another), small “faded/cloudy” area on fabric caused by friction or heat during the manufacturing process, small pleather or adhesive “smear” marks
- Front (Clear) Window Panel: Small pock marks/dents, surface scratches or other miscellaneous surface inconsistencies that are only visible when viewed from certain angle or lighting

C Grade - “Moderate/More Noticeable Imperfection(s), but Acceptable”

C Grade bags exhibit a range of cosmetic imperfections that are, for the most part, detected quickly/may be more distracting, and are almost always visible from nearly any angle. C Grade imperfections include all of the B Grade examples listed above, but in more noticeable or distracting form.

Order Processing Times

Order processing times (the time it takes to pack and ship out your order) typically fall between 7 to 14 business days.

During major shop updates, processing times have historically extended to 6 - 8 weeks, as all order fulfillment is solely handled by one person!

 

Estimated Transit & Delivery Times

DUE TO COVID-19, POSTAL TRANSIT DELAYS ARE TO BE EXPECTED WORLDWIDE.

All orders from our shop ship via USPS.

Domestic orders (within the United States) typically take between 2 to 10 days to be delivered.

International orders (outside of the United States) typically take between 5 to 12 weeks to be delivered.


Order Cancellations

During our normal operations, our shop accepts order cancellations within 2 hours of the order being placed. Please note that there is a 10% processing and restocking fee charged for all cancelled orders.

During major shop updates (ex: holiday sales or public drops), we do not accept ANY order cancellations.


Returns & Exchanges

All sales are final. We do not accept Returns. Please read over any item descriptions, dimensions, and grading guides carefully before purchasing.

We DO accept exchanges for other shop items of equal or lesser value, as long as the exchange is requested within 10 days of original order delivery! Customer will be responsible for all costs related to the exchange, including shipping from us. Please contact help@blushsprout.com with your name and order number to request an exchange. 

Exchanges may be determined on a case by case basis and we reserve the right to deny any exchange requests.

 

Address Changes

We are only able to change an order's shipping address if the shipping label has not yet been printed. Once the label has been printed & the automated shipping confirmation email has gone out, we cannot reroute the order. Customer must wait until the order bounces back to our P.O. Box, then we can take the next steps (see next section).

 

Return to Sender Orders

For returned orders, Customer may choose to have the order reshipped (Customer is responsible for reshipment fees), or may choose to have the order refunded minus original shipping costs & the 10% restocking fee.

 

Combining Multiple Orders Together

Due to the volume of orders we receive on a regular basis, we are not able to combine the shipping of orders that were placed separately. Similarly, we are not able to combine orders placed through our online shop with monthly Blushsprout pin club shipments.

Order Damaged or Incorret Upon Arrival

If an item from your order arrived in a damaged state, or you received the wrong item, we will be happy to look into it and help! To ensure accurate and speedy assistance on the issue, please complete the following steps:

1. Take at least one photo of the item, clearly showing the damage/wrong item received. Make sure the photograph is well-lit. If the photo is grainy or dark, we may ask for a new photo.
2. Send the photo(s) to our customer service inbox, help@blushsprout.com, and include your full name, order number, and written description of the issue.

Once we read your e-mail, we will then work with you on a resolution, whether it be a refund, replacement, or instructions on how to easily fix the problem (ex: bent pinbacks). In some instances, we may require that the Customer sends us back the defective or incorrect item. If this is requested, Customer will not be responsible for any costs associated with the exchange or reshipment.

 

Lost Orders - Stuck in Transit

If order tracking has not updated and is stuck "In Transit"...

U.S. customers - please wait at least 4 weeks from the time of the last tracking update before contacting us. Packages often get stuck, but eventually work their way back into the delivery cycle. If it has been 4 weeks without delivery, please contact us so that we may look into it for you.

International (non-U.S.) customers - it is very common for tracking to rarely update, or even update at all, once your package reaches the International Sorting Facility in Chiacgo, IL. Please do not be alarmed if your tracking does not update for many weeks at a time. We do not consider international packages to be lost until at least 3 full months have gone by since the shipment date. If it has been 3 months without delivery, please contact us so that we may look into it for you.

We always recommend reaching out to your local post office to see if they have any information regarding your package!

Lost Orders - Marked as Delivered

Once we hand something off to the United States Postal Service for shipping, what happens is completely out of our hands - especially after the package has been marked as “Delivered”.
Your local post office will always be most qualified to help you locate your Delivered package in these situations, but we also have some tips that have helped customers locate their packages in the past:

1. Wait a couple of days to see if the package shows up -- USPS may sometimes prematurely label packages as "Delivered" when in actuality, they are still sitting at the post office or mail truck waiting to be delivered the next business day.

2. If a few days have passed and you are still unsure of your package's whereabouts, please call your nearest, local post office to make sure that your package is not being held there. The workers may be able to talk directly with the mail carriers to see if the carrier remember dropping the package off at your address. Sometimes there are also comments left in their records of where the package was placed. If you contact your regional/local post office (instead of the national USPS customer service hotline), they are usually able to look up the exact GPS location of where your package was dropped off.

3. Try asking your neighbors to see if something got mixed up or was delivered to the wrong door.

4. If you live with others, double-check everyone else in the household to make sure they didn't bring your package inside and/or open it up for you.

5. Check all areas of your property -- could it have gotten swept away or blown somewhere nearby? Be sure to check your yard, front/back door, porch, bushes, etc.

6. If you are still unable to locate your package and believe that it was lost or stolen after its delivery, you will need to file a missing mail search request directly with USPS: https://www.usps.com/help/missing-mail.htm

Please contact us if you are in need of specific shipment details to aid in a mail search request.



International Customs

Our shop is not responsible for any customs, fees, VAT, taxes, or import duties associated with outgoing orders. The recipient of the package is responsible for paying any charges incurred upon arrival. Please contact your local customs office for more information.

 

Forgot To Apply Discount Code

Unfortunately, discount codes cannot be applied retroactively. If you forgot to use a discount code, you may request to cancel your order within 2 hours of placing the order, but as per our shop policy, a 10% processing and restocking fee will still be applied to the cancelled order.

 

Anti-Harassment Policy & Right to Refuse Service

We have the right to refuse service to any Customer who exhibits harmful, rude, or manipulative behavior to our shop or employees over e-mail, messaging, or otherwise. In this event, any outstanding orders associated with Customer will be cancelled and a ban will be implemented.
