special thanks out chapter 1 army • special thanks to our step forward [ WINGS TOUR : THE FINAL ]
The reason I chose “forward” to be the counterpart to chapter 1 was to symbolize the start of something new, or a fresh start. Bangtan has helped a lot of us move on from obstacles that we have faced in our lives and have helped many army start anew and walk forward on a path of happiness. the lantern design was something that symbolizes joy, celebration, and good fortune, so i wanted to make this represent a step towards a positive future as well as to not give up during times of hardship

This pin is part of my 7th anniversary pin series, the thank you series.
All pins in this set represents a thank you to bts, who have connected army together through music & lyrics, we thank them for making our world shine a little brighter and a little bit more magical. Each design of mirrors one of their thank you shoutouts they show at the end of every concert/ some of their other merch such as DVDs. So in a way, it’s my way of saying thank you & answering back to messages they left for us. The concept for this series also borrows from my wish series that I scrapped in 2019 with having a wish tag underneath each pin. The old versions were specifically for hyyh and pertained to each member and what they wrote for the 2019 muster wish tree, however this series will be phrases that I have chosen to represent what army wish for bangtan and/or what we are thanking them for.
I specifically designed these pins to be enjoyed by fans & non fans alike as all the pin designs are super subtly linked to BTS, but can also hold a lot of meaning too if you are an army. I hope that these designs can provide you with some comfort as you explore life & all the different paths you can take and encourage you to be brave, try new things, and overcome whatever obstacles that may come your way.
B & C grade pins have issues with screenprint (C grade have missing screenprint), B grade can have specs/dots on the pin and may have issues with screenprinting being misaligned & having marks or small areas that are missing. If the overall main or important parts of screenprint do not have major issues, it's usually classified as B vs C, B grades also may have minor under or overfill in enamel that isn't too noticeable.
C graded pins may have issues with enamel fill that are noticeable and in large areas. The issues with screenprinting may be that there it's missing screenprint, uneven or discolored screenprint. (See pictures below for info!) Usually these are in large areas or are more noticeable.
