FAQ Series – Part 2: Turnaround, Production, & Shipping

Welcome back for Part 2 of our FAQ series! This blog will be all about our turnaround time, production, and shipping. Our last post featured Product Questions, which you can read more about here. That post delved into button sizes, backing options, free samples, how we stand out as a company, and the differences between the fridge magnets and clothing magnets.

When it comes to turnaround times, production times, and shipping times, things can be a little confusing, so hopefully this answers you questions! If you still have further questions, we’d love to help! You can give us a call at (623-445-9975), send us an email (sales@custombuttons.com), or reach us on our website chat!

Let’s begin!

“Am I better off to get Fast-Track Production or Rush Shipping?”

If you are using our website, after you enter in your quantity and delivery zip code and click the ‘calculate a price and delivery date button’, a calendar will pop up with dates that you can choose from. When you choose a sooner delivery date than what the standard production time and delivery date is, the website will automatically calculate the most cost effective way to get the buttons to you! Our button experts on our sales team also use this method to determine the best price for your delivery date!

If you have difficulties using the website, we are more than happy to give you a quote or help you place an order over the phone, by email, or by chat! You can also check out our video here, that walks through the steps of placing an order and also talks about Fast Track and Shipping options.

“What do you mean by Production Time and Shipping Time?”

Production time is the time that it will take us to produce your buttons. Our standard production time is 5 business days for orders less than 10,000 pieces. However, if we finish your order sooner than the standard production time, we will ship it out so you can receive your buttons early! When you have a Fast Track order, the Fast Track determines the number of days it takes us to make your order. We offer Same-Day and 1-4 day Fast Track production times.

Shipping time is the time is takes for your buttons to reach you once they leave us after production. Ground shipping times vary depending on how close or how far you are away from us in Phoenix, AZ. We ship with UPS and Fedex typically and each carrier has different transit dates and days they deliver on. We will ship your buttons the most efficient way possible to ensure your order arrives to you on the date that you need them by.

“Can I rush my order?”

Yes definitely! We offer a Fast-Track Service, which guarantees that your buttons will be produced the Same Day, 1-4 Day Production times, and we also offer expedited shipping options. Sometimes it takes a combination of the two to ensure that your buttons will arrive by your guaranteed delivery date. Unlike other button companies, our fees associated with our Fast-Track service are minimal. Beware of companies charging you up to 125% to rush your button order!

“I need my buttons tomorrow! Can you help?”

Absolutely! Here at Everyone Loves Buttons ®, we specialize in rush orders, and we offer a same day production and next day air shipping option on orders that are up to 2,500 buttons. If you are placing an order on our website, our cut off time is 11AM Arizona Time, however we can accept orders after that if you give us a call. The only catch to placing an order that needs to be delivered tomorrow is, everything needs to be approved by 1PM Arizona Time in order to ship out your order the same day.

“Do you ship internationally?”

Of course! International shipping can take a bit longer than domestic shipping depending on the country that the buttons are going to. We insure/declare all shipments for their actual ‘per piece’ value to ensure that your buttons are insured when shipping out of the country. We try to make sure that duties and taxes are built into the cost of your shipping so you don’t have to worry about that, however the costs are based off of the recipient country, and can change and you may owe a bit more to receive your package.

“My buttons didn’t arrive the date that I needed them, what do I do?”

Our deepest apologies that the buttons didn’t arrive on time, we ship out every order so that it will either arrive on time or sometimes arrive early. We put our faith in our shipping carriers to deliver our products on time, however sometimes weather or truck issues can cause delays.

In situations like this, we start by contacting our shipping rep, whether it was with UPS or Fedex. From there we initiate the refund process for the shipping to be refunded. We will issue a refund for the shipping if the buttons did not arrive on time. If you do not want the button order due to the delivery being late, please send them back to us and we will issue a complete refund. We do not issue refunds for incorrect addresses provided or businesses being closed at the time of delivery delaying the delivery of the button products.

“I need my buttons on a Saturday, can you do that?”

Yes! We offer Saturday deliveries, however you have to place the order directly through us (by phone or email) because our website is not set up for Saturday orders. The delivery costs for Saturday deliveries are also typically higher with UPS and Fedex than an order being delivered during the week.

“I need my buttons in the morning on my desired delivery date, what do I do?”

The only way we can guarantee a morning delivery is if we ship Next Day Air or 2nd Day Air AM delivery. When packages are shipped Ground, 3 Day Select, and 2nd Day Air, the delivery time is by the end of the business day, meaning 4:30PM for businesses and 8PM for residences. Next Day Air typically has a delivery time between 10:30 AM and 12PM. AM deliveries are between 8 AM and 12 PM.

If we missed any questions on this part about turnaround times, production, or shipping, you can always give us a call (623-445-9975), send us an email (sales@custombuttons.com), or on our chat on our website (custombuttons.com). We’re here to help in every step of your button order process from starting an order to shipping out your order.

The next part of our FAQ Series will discuss the ordering process, and other details pertaining to orders, so stay tuned for that next part! As always, we are in this business because Everyone Loves Buttons®!

FAQ Series – Part 1: Product Questions

When it comes to ordering custom buttons, you might have a few questions, and we are here to help! We do have an FAQ page, but your question might not be on that page, and this is where our blog comes in! We frequently get calls, emails, and chats in regards to our products, so we thought why not put together a blog series answering some of those questions!

“I’m looking for a standard button size, what do you recommend?”

We carry over 21 different shapes and sizes when it comes to buttons and that can be a little intimidating. Have no fear; our button experts can help you through picking out the perfect size. Our most common sizes are the 1”, 1.25”, 2.25”, and 3” buttons. Each size has different purposes, and we want to make sure that it will fit your needs! The 1” and 1.25” buttons are perfect for handing out. They are often pinned to jackets, hats, lanyards, and bags to show off a little flair. The 2.25” round buttons are the size of the top of a soda can and often feature short catch phrases, pictures, and for political candidates and are great for being a visible sized button without being obtrusive. The 3” round buttons are highly visible and about the size of a baseball. We commonly see companies using this size as their silent salesman for new products or offers happening in stores.

If you are not sure what size would work best for your custom buttons, we can definitely recommend a size based on what you want your custom buttons to be for!

*Not pictured is the 6″ round button.

“What kind of backing options do you offer?”

We actually have a page on our website dedicated to showing the different backing types to show what they look like, but currently we offer:

Standard Pin-Back Buttons

Clothing Magnet Buttons

Fridge Magnet Buttons

Bulldog Clip Buttons

Mirror Back Buttons

Bottle Opener Buttons

Zipper Pulls ®

For information on each backing type, see our blog post here.

“Do you offer free samples?”

Yes we do! However, they are not custom samples with your design, just generic samples. Typically people who are requesting samples are testing our quality, determining what size would work best for them, and finally what type of backing they are interested in. We make it easy too, let us know your name and ship to address and we will send out the generic samples to you. They are typically shipped out in a bubble mailer via USPS to protect them, and may take a few days to receive, so if you’re in a rush, this may not be the best option.

“What makes you stand out from other button companies?”

We like to think that we have the highest quality and standards when it comes to our button products and customer service. We will work day and night (and weekends if needed), to make sure that we get out your order on time. Our highly trained staff ensures that your buttons are made with only the best parts and graphics during production, and our customer service team ensures you have the best possible experience with us. Our 4.9 Star Rating with Trustpilot isn’t for nothing after all! We strive to be able to help every step of the way.

Did you know that we are also a Nationally Certified Woman Owned Business (WBENC & WOSB) and a Certified Made in USA company? We take pride in the fact that we are woman owned and all of our products are Made in the USA. Our button parts are manufactured in Wisconsin and our button manufacturing facility and offices are located in Phoenix, AZ where we make all of our custom promotional button products!

“How can you sell such high quality buttons at affordable pricing?”

We buy all of our inventory in bulk, and have great relationships with all of our vendors. We offer the highest quality buttons in the industry. We print all of our promotional products on a state of the art digital press, which allows us to print in the highest quality, clarity, color, and contrast. All of our parts are 100% certified USA made, as is our labor! Our buttons are manufactured by skilled employees, and in a sweatshop free environment. We are widely considered as the largest promotional button company in the United Sates, and one of the top in the world! When you choose to buy from us, you not only get the best pricing (we have a best price guarantee), but also the best quality and service money can buy!

“What’s the different between flat back fridge magnets and clothing magnets?”

We offer two different kinds of magnets, those you wear (clothing magnets) and those you display (flat back fridge magnets). Clothing magnet buttons are made with a 2-piece magnet attached to the back of the button. This allows you to attach the button to your clothing without poking holes that are cause by our standard pin-back buttons. Depending on the size of the buttons that you order, the clothing magnet will either be a small (but powerful) round 2-piece magnet or a bar 2-piece magnet. Flat back fridge magnets on the other hand, are not able to be worn, rather they are for sticking to magnetic or metal surfaces (like a refrigerator). They are called flat back magnets because we use a flat back metal part with the buttons and then put a flat refrigerator magnet on top of the flat back button part.

Clothing Magnets Examples

Fridge Magnet Example

How to Wear Your Custom Buttons and Other Backing Options

When you are creating or designing your custom button, most business owners don’t think about one crucial detail…how is anyone going to wear or show off their buttons? Most business owners choose the traditional pin-back style buttons because that might be what they are the most familiar with, but there is more than just that one way to wear a button or even display a button.

Wearable Button Backing Options

 

Traditional Pin-Back Button

A pin-back button can simply be fastened to a shirt, hat, or bag using the jeweler’s safety pin style mechanism. Cool fact, the first design for a pin-back button was patented in 1896, and modern buttons are modeled after that patent in very much the same way! Patent holders, Whitehead and Hoag said, “My present invention has reference to improvements in badges for use as lapel pins or buttons, or other like uses, and has for its primary object to provide…a novel means for connecting the ornamental shell or button to the bar or pin for securing the badge to the lapel of the coat.” While pin-back buttons may not seem like much of an invention, in 1896, zippers hadn’t even been invented! Early campaign buttons had to be sewn onto the lapel or worn as a pendant, so the pin-back button was quite the revolutionary product.

Today, the pin-back buttons is the most cost effective option for those who are on a budget. From sizes starting at 7/8” all the way to 6” with rectangles, squares, and ovals in between, there is a button size and shape for every need! To order standard pin-back buttons, click here!

Clothing Magnet

If you’d rather your employees or your customers, or even yourself, not poke holes in their/your clothes in order to wear your custom buttons, the bar magnet is a great choice! This small, but powerful magnet is a fantastic backing option for larger and heavier buttons that might rip clothes if they were attached with a pin. This back is also a great option for places that want to reuse their custom buttons amongst employees, or have a lot of buttons to choose from. For instance, a fast food restaurant might order their custom buttons with a bar magnet, and just keep them all in a drawer in the main office. Employees can easily swap out the buttons each shift without poking dozens of holes in their uniforms. Our clothing magnets come in two different sizes, a small round magnet and a bar magnet. Depending on the size of the buttons that you order is what size clothing magnet will be used for your order. Both are powerful magnets and even stick to magnetic or metal surfaces like refrigerators! To order clothing magnets, click here!

Bulldog Clips

Bulldog clip backs look a lot like badge clips. The bulldog clip is attached to the back of the button and can easily be clipped onto a lapel or pocket so you don’t have to push a pin through your shirt. Bulldog clips are also great for attaching ID tags to lanyards. To order bulldog clips, click here!

When choosing how your employees or customers are going to wear your buttons you have to figure out how they will be wearing them. If they will constantly be removing and putting the button back on, a bar magnet or bulldog clip fastener is probably a better choice because those won’t poke holes in their clothes. However the downside to those types of backings is, they can be a little more expensive, so if you are designing your custom buttons on a budget the traditional pin-back button style might be a better choice.

Other Backing Options

Other than the standard pin-back buttons, clothing magnets, and bulldog clip backing options, we also have Zipper Pulls®, Fridge Magnets, Bottle Openers, and Mirror Backs. These backing types have some limited size options due to how they are made.

Zipper Pulls®

Zipper Pulls® are either a 1” or 1.25” button that has a special backing that allows for a clip to be clipped to the zipper of backpacks, jackets, purses, key chains, and more. They are a powerful advertising tool for a variety of industries including sports teams, ski resorts, schools, retailers, trade shows, and art organizations. They are a great way to show off your brand or create awareness. To order Zipper Pulls®, click here!

Fridge Magnets

Fridge magnets are a way to show off your custom button designs on the refrigerator or a metal surface. The custom button magnets are made using the same production process, however the backing type parts are different. Fridge magnets use a flat back metal part or an unpinned back (depending on the size of the magnet button). This type of magnet is stronger and longer lasting than the flexible fridge magnets you would normally see. To order fridge magnets, click here!

Bottle Openers

Bottle Openers come in one size currently, the 2.25” round. The backing is a black polypropylene plastic with a metal bottle opener and a magnet to either hang your bottle opener up while it’s not in use or catch the bottle cap when opening the bottle! Bottle openers are great for breweries, gifts, or even advertisements for beverage companies! To place an order for bottle openers, click here!

Mirror Backs

Mirror Backs, like the bottle openers, come in one size the 2.25” round. They have a mirror on the back and your custom design on the front! They are great for people on the go, whether you carry it in your pocket or in a purse or makeup bag, you’ll never be without a mirror again! You can order mirror backs here!

We can be reached by phone (623-445-9975) or by email (sales@custombuttons.com) or even by chat on our website Monday – Friday, 8 AM – 5PM Arizona Time.

A Year in Review 2019 Edition with: Everyone Loves Buttons®

Happy Holidays! Hanukkah has just begun this year, and Christmas is almost upon us. So we wanted to celebrate the holidays with a Year in Review. We wouldn’t be where we are today without our amazing customers and staff. With that, we want to take a look at some highlights of this year and what our plans are for 2020.

2019 Highlights

This year we introduced a new product line, a new size into our product line up, and we went to our first trade show in several years!

Button Boxes

Our newest product line is called Button Boxes. There are three different avenues for this retail product: Custom Button Boxes, Support the Cause FunD Button Boxes, and Stock Button Boxes. Button boxes are the perfect impulse buy at checkout counters, from their button designs to their compact box. Buttons are hot nowadays and people love to express themselves, so what better way then to offer buttons at the checkout counters. From our clients in the Grand Canyon Souvenir Gift Shops to different gift shops in Maine, they have seen great success with their button boxes. People love picking up these little mementos of their time visiting. With Support the Cause FunD boxes, our customers donate a portions of their sales to a charity that is featured on the box. People are happy to donate and have a keepsake of their donation to pin to their hats, jackets, and more. If you aren’t looking for a custom box with your designs, we also offer a line of stock boxes, from locations, to holidays, to even our parental advisory line. Our stock buttons are a fun way for people to express themselves.

2.5 x 3.5” Round Fridge Magnets

Another fun way to express yourself or have a souvenir reminder is to check out our newest fridge magnet size: 2.5 x 3.5” Rounded Corner Rectangles. There is a animation/theme park mogul who has changed their square corner rectangles over to rounded corner rectangles for safety, and we decided to follow suit. The 2.5 x 3.5” rounded corner rectangles are great to feature high quality images like our friends at the Arizona State Parks. They feature different parks on their custom magnets that you can pick up at the different park gift shops!

Las Vegas Souvenir and Resort Gift Show

Gift Shops and retail products is one of the reasons why we decided to attend the Souvenir and Resort Gift Show this year, hosted in Las Vegas, NV. When the final decision was made that we were going to attend, we had just a few short months to prepare ourselves. From planning to packing, to making sure that our show products were made, there was quite a lot to be done. We had to make sure that our marketing materials were eye catching and easy to read. We made sure that we brought along enough product samples, from custom buttons, to button boxes, to fridge magnets. When all of our product samples and marketing materials were made and everything was packed, it was finally time for the show!

We decided to be apart of a program that put retail buyers in front of us for meetings, which allowed us to pitch our product face to face. This allowed us to talk with those individual buyers and found out what their retail needs are. From there, we came up with different products that we thought would do well in their gift shops and retail stores. From this program stemmed organic foot traffic to see what we were all about. Over the course of 4 days we met people from across the United States, and even some from other countries. Each person we met was different from the last, whether they were interested in a particular button box, or wanted to order custom buttons, we were there for them! After the show was over, we packed up the car and drove home to sunny Phoenix, AZ.

Going to the Las Vegas Souvenir and Resort Gift Show was certainly a unique experience for us. We met a lot of people and it was a great way for us to begin a working relationship with different buyers, especially having been able to meet face to face. All in all it was a great show for us to attend and we learned a lot.

2020 New Years Resolution

With 2019 coming to an end, we want to ring in the new year by working on our 2020 New Years Resolution. For 2020, there are a few things that we would like to do:

  • Shine a spotlight on some of our customers each month in the new year
  • Produce over 5 million buttons, clothing magnets, fridge magnets and more in 2020
  • Continue to provide legendary customer service and high quality products
  • Continue to offer our customers constant communication with us from our emails, to phones, to even our chat on our website.

We are constantly working with our customers and staff to be able to provide the best customer service and highest quality promotional products in the industry. We wouldn’t be where we are today without our customers and our staff. To our customers, we wish you nothing but joy as the year comes to an end, and to our staff, thank you for the countless hours and hard work you dedicate to us every day!

5 Ways to Improve Marketing with Custom Buttons

A Brief History of Buttons

Since the days of their inception and the days of our founding fathers, pin-back buttons have been a huge marketing tool. George Washington’s supporters had brass campaign buttons that said “Long Live The President” in 1789, and later presidential candidates such as John Quincy Adams and Abraham Lincoln won their elections with the use of these effective marketing tools against their opponents. Abraham Lincoln was the first President to have his picture featured on a button, that revolutionized the industry and introduced a new era of pin-back buttons which then included photos and campaign slogans.

The pin-back buttons that we see today, however, most closely resemble those produced by Whitehead and Hoag. Whitehead and Hoag are the oldest and largest button company of the early 20th century. They introduced a patented design that featured the use of celluloid over the button’s image to protect the image from age and weather and maintain the vibrant colors of the image. This is how standard buttons got the name celluloid buttons! With this new technique, button making and printing became cheaper which led to toy, candy, and tobacco companies using them as product promotions.

In the 1960s and 1970s, pin back buttons became an effective way to support a cause. Anti-war buttons and peace sign buttons picked up hype and became a huge marketing tool for those people who wanted to express their beliefs. To this day, people of all ages, are creating buttons to express their beliefs or support their causes.

It’s no wonder that buttons have carved a market in the advertising industry, even after being around for the last two centuries.

So let’s take a look on how custom buttons can improve your marketing:

 

1. Custom Buttons Are Walking Billboards

With custom buttons coming in a variety of different shapes and sizes, it’s no wonder that companies are using them as walking billboards for their customers. Whether it’s the company employee wearing a button advertising a sale, or a customer wearing the button with the company logo, custom buttons are everywhere. We see buttons on t-shirts, travel bags, and even on hats. Great buttons include a colorful design or slogan that attract attention for that company and are great conversation starters.

 

2. Cost Effective Method to Promote Your Business

Most button companies, like ours have price breaks for when you are ordering larger quantities. Buttons become cheaper the more that your order and the frequency that you order. Custom buttons are also long lasting handouts that can survive weather, time, and use. We’ve even, by accident, sent some of our own buttons through the washing machine and they’ve survived. So you don’t have to worry about your buttons not withstanding the test of time! By taking time to invest in great marketing materials, you will be able to garner the amount of attention you or your company is looking for!

 

3. Great Handout at Events and Trade Shows

Everyone loves custom buttons, whether it is at an event or at a trade show. Again they are cheap item to bring to hand out. They make great mementos for the guests of the show or the event. There is a large audience of people that are moving from booth to booth at such events or shows, and with freebies and giveaways, people are more likely to remember your company. People will even seek out your booth specifically because they intend to get the same button they’ve seen someone else wearing.

 

4. Multiple Custom Button Designs to Track Business Profits

This is geared towards retail stores and restaurants. When you are running different sales or promotions, you can have your employees wear different kinds of buttons. For example, if you have a sale on Women’s clothing and another on technology, you could have two different buttons made up, one for employees in the clothing department, and one for the employees in the technology department. The products are run up at the register and you are able to track the different profits based on which product is purchase. You can also measure using buttons as your silent salesman versus no buttons and see how the sales increase. This ties back into Number 1. Custom Buttons are Walking Billboards.

 

5. Customization is Key

With pin-back buttons, anything is possible. You could have your brand logo or slogan on a button in a multitude of sizes and shapes. You can also use buttons to promote a new product or an upcoming event. By being able to put whatever you want on a custom button, the sky’s the limit. Custom buttons can come in round, square, rectangular, or even oval forms depending on the needs of your business. They also have no limitation on what you can feature on the buttons from creating a personal memento to advertising different product such as food, clothes, or the latest sale.

 

Remember not every button manufacturing company is created equal, so it is important to do your research on which company has the best service and quality. By taking time to research various button manufacturers, you can figure out which of them is the right fit for your custom button needs. Remember, paying a little bit extra for a quality button will be well worth it in the long run. It’s always best to compare costs, with production times, along with the quality of the products you are ordering. Make sure to read the customer reviews, and if you have time, even ask for samples before buying!

We love to see each unique design, and are able to help you with your own design to ensure that your own custom buttons are perfect. We offer 21 different shapes and sizes from 7/8” round to 6” round and 1.5” square to 2.5 x 3.5” rectangles and a range of sizes in between.

National Button Day

Today is National Button Day and it is a fun holiday to celebrate buttons that are used on clothing, ornamentation, or as fasteners on November 16th. These types of buttons are different from the ones that we manufacture here at CustomButtons.com by Everyone Loves Buttons Inc ®, but we wanted to share because we love all types of buttons!

The first clothing buttons have been found in the Indus River Valley, China, and Ancient Rome. The oldest known button, dating 5000 BCE, was made of curved shell and for in the Indus River Valley.

Buttons that function as fasteners and buttonholes didn’t actually come into popularity until around the 13th Century in Germany. As they gained popularity throughout Europe, button composition reflected the popular materials of the era in which they were made. Today buttons are most often constructed out of hard plastic, metals, seashells, or wood.

Collecting buttons started to become popular in the United States, and from that popularity sprung up The National Button Society, which was founded in 1938. The members vary from people having buttons in containers, casual collecting, and even competitive collecting. The National Button Society focuses on educational research and exhibitions, the publication of materials about buttons, and the preservation of the importance of buttons.

If you’re an avid button collector, you could easily become a National Button Society Member, and even see if there are any button societies in your own state. There are also museums that feature button collections such as The Victoria & Albert Museum, the Smithsonian Museum, the Waterbury Button Museum, the Keep Homestead Museum, and even the National Button Society’s own online button gallery.

To celebrate you could visit a museum, whether in person or virtually, wear something with buttons, share your collection with other enthusiasts, or you can make a craft with buttons.
