Customer Spotlight: The Minnesota Zoo Foundation

This week’s Customer Spotlight shines on the Minnesota Zoo Foundation! Operating since 1978, this organization has supported the Minnesota Zoo and its affiliated programs for over 40 years.

 

In addition to funding the Zoo’s staff and facilities, they also provide support to care for all of the Zoo’s animals, the conservation efforts of wild animals, and the Zoo’s educational programs. The Minnesota Zoo Foundation strives to ensure that everyone has a great experience learning about animals and our natural environment from helping people access the zoo to bringing the zoo to people who are not able to attend.

 

 

The Minnesota Zoo Foundation recently had buttons made for their upcoming Give to the Max Day. This is their annual day of fundraising that provides a unique experience to anyone who participates. This year’s event is on November 15th, and marks the event’s 10th anniversary. It follows a “choose your own adventure” theme that can be enjoyed online from anywhere, including at home! You get to pick your favorite animals from their social media polls during the fundraiser, and the animals with the most votes in each round of voting will be featured on their livestream. Click here to visit their Facebook and vote!

 

This year the Foundation is hoping to raise $75,000 during Give to the Max Day, and if you would like to help support them click here to visit their website and donate.

 

We would like to give a big thank you to the Minnesota Zoo Foundation for choosing us to make your buttons!

We Have Your Backing!

Buttons are the perfect marketing accessory for different events, from birthdays to conventions and beyond. At Everyone Loves Buttons®, we aim to be your one-stop button shop for all your button needs. Want buttons that truly stand apart from the rest? We offer multiple button backings for you to choose from, including:

 

Pin-back Buttons

 

 

The “traditional” button backing, this backing is great for pinning to a shirt, hat, bag, ect. Durable and secure, these types of buttons are always a reliable choice. With their steel construction the pins are sure to last for many years to come. Keep in mind that our 1” and 7/8” buttons are hand pinned and have different looking pins due to their small size. Despite their visual differences, these pins are just as strong as our larger pin-back buttons.

 

Clothing Magnet Buttons

 

 

 

Not a fan of poking a pin through clothing? Why not try a clothing magnet! This backing replaces the usual pin in favor of a strong magnet that can be placed behind clothing to ensure the button stays in place without damaging any surfaces. The type of magnet backing used depends on the size of the button. Our larger sizes feature a sturdy bar magnet to ensure they remain securely attached, while smaller sizes feature a small but strong circle magnet.

 

Bulldog Clip Buttons

 

 

Want a better way of attaching your button to a lanyard? The bulldog clip might be your solution! This backing includes a spring-loaded clip on the back of the button that allows you to securely fasten the button to almost anything. Plus, the clip features a swivel attachment that lets you easily adjust the orientation of your button.

 

Fridge Magnets

 

 

Ever wanted to create a special magnet for your fridge? Look no further! This backing includes a sleek and strong magnet, and is available in the sizes and shapes you love.

 

Zipper Pulls®

 

 

We are proud to also offer Zipper Pull® backings, which let you attach your own customized buttons to zippers. Combining both form and function, this backing lets you show off your designs to the world while also making it easier to use zippers on jackets, backpacks, sports bags, and more!

Two is Always Better Than One

Here at Everyone Loves Buttons®, we care deeply about delivering top quality products and services to our customers. This is why all our button sizes and shapes are offered as two-piece buttons instead of one-piece.

 

One-piece Vs. Two-piece

 

While both one-piece and two-piece buttons will help you share a message with others, there is a significant difference in overall quality. In a one-piece button the graphic is clamped directly to the backing of the button. This leaves your design vulnerable to many outside factors. Moisture, dirt, or even the pin itself can quickly ruin your design. In fact, closing the button and accidentally damaging the front is a notorious issue for one-piece buttons.

 

The big difference? An internal metal shell that solves all these issues. The clamping process wraps mylar and the graphic around the shell’s edge before clamping it to the backing. This completely seals the graphic from anything that can cause damage. The shell forms a solid wall between the pin opening and the graphic, preventing dirt and water from seeping into the graphic. In addition, the metal shell prevents the pin from scratching the image, ensuring your designs are fully protected and will last longer than just a few hours.

 

Are There Any Benefits for One-piece Buttons?

 

One-piece buttons are less expensive because they do not have the internal shell like two-piece buttons. However, what you save in money you will end up paying for in quality.

 

For these reasons we only offer our customers two piece buttons for their button needs. Our top quality parts and refined production process ensure your buttons will not only make a lasting impression on others, but also last for years to come.

Customer Spotlight: Storey and the Tellers!

Our next Customer Spotlight shines on the talented group Storey and the Tellers, an alternative rock trio taking on Los Angeles!

 

Storey Sheinberg’s love of music led her to start the group in 2008 at Pitzer College in Los Angeles, California. Storey is currently the lead songwriter and guitarist, and has been a large part of the creative force behind the group since the very beginning. She draws inspiration from her love of music, and musical artists including Bruce Springsteen, The E Street Band, The Lil Smokies, Greensky Bluegrass, Railroad Earth, and the Infamous Stringdusters.

 

 

Since their founding, Storey and the Tellers has quickly gained the attention of the Los Angeles music scene.

 

Belonging to the Alternative Rock genre, their music uses powerful guitar chords to accompany their thoughtful lyrics. Combining their sources of inspiration with their originality, they have created a sound that is distinctly their own.

 

They recently performed alongside other local bands at The Satellite in Los Angeles, CA. We were thrilled Storey and the Tellers chose us to help make the night extra special for their fans by ordering their own custom buttons!
