    Hi! I have a question... are you ever considering clip-on or screw-on earring backings? I want to create some earrings for people who either don't have pierced ears or just want the convenience of clip/screw. Thanks!

    Hey Kendal!
    Thanks for bringing up different types of hooks and backings. This is absolutely something we would look at down the line. If you have specific hooks and backs you prefer, please direct message me with links, I'd love to see them!

    Hi! Do you also attach the pins to the earrings, or do you provide only the backings? Should I include the pin in my original 3D model? I am confused about the process, as I have read that some people received their earrings with pins attached. Thank you, Zoi!

    We do not include the post/pin in the design. The dimensions you should use for your .8mm thick post and 12 mm length.
