CustomButtons.com Gives Two Thumbs Up for Rickie Fowler!

Rickie Fowler Wore pin to Honor #1 Fan

Each day of the www.pgatour.com Rickie Fowler wore a pin (1.5″ Square Button) honoring one of his biggest fans, Griffin Connell. Connell passed away this January due to a rare airway disorder and he was only 7 years old. Connell braved many surgeries and was an inspiration to many because of his enthusiasm for life. Fowler met Connell in 2013 and they regularly exchanged texts and emails. “He was just a huge fan of the game,” Fowler said. “I claim him as being my No. 1 fan, so he had a special place with me and Joe (Skovron, Fowler’s caddie)”.

“We looked forward to seeing him and the family here at the tournament every year, so it’s unfortunate that we don’t have him here this week because he was fun to see.” The pin Fowler wore in honor of Connell meant a lot to many people and was created www.CustomButtons.com by Everyone Loves Buttons.

Monday, January 29th marked the first day of the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The first two days consisted of practice rounds for the PGA Tour Pros and Wednesday was the Annexus Pro-Am. Many celebrities including singers, actors and athletes showed up to play at the Pro- am. Some favorites included Arizona Cardinals recently retired Head Coach Bruce Arians, six time All Pro Larry Fitzgerald, currently ranked fourth all-time in NFL history in receiving yards per game for a career, and Country Music star Dierks Bentley.

THE 16TH HOLE OF THE WASTE MANAGEMENT OPEN

The 16th hole is the place to be at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Here you can socialize while you cheer on your favorite PGA pros. However many players feel it has gotten crazy this year. Many PGA pros have become disappointed by the comments from people in the stands.  Even Rickie Fowler didn’t like the atmosphere of the 16th hole. “I was a little disappointed at some of the stuff that was said. I don’t want much negativity — the normal boos for missing a green, that’s fine, but leave the heckling to a minimum and make it fun.” Said Fowler. Fowler was runner-up to Hideki Matsuyama in 2016, and T4 last year.

Although Rickie Fowler didn’t win the tournament, we wish him well and will continue to cheer him on in the future for everything he has done to honor @GriffinConnell

Last minute order? Choose our Fast-Track Service to guarantee your expedited delivery date!

Everyone Loves Buttons has some of the fastest button-machine operators in the industry especially when you add it with our Fast-Track Service. Our standard production time for all orders is just five business days, but that does not mean that we can’t get your order done sooner. Depending on our production schedule, some orders may be completed sooner than five days.

But what if I NEED my buttons sooner than five days?

That’s no problem! We offer a variety of fast-track service options that will guarantee your delivery date. With us, there is no guessing and wondering when your order will arrive like with those other button companies. Even if you need your buttons by the following day, we can do up to 2,500 buttons the same day your order is placed and get them shipped to you that afternoon. Of course, in a circumstance like that, you would need to place the order by noon (Arizona Time) that day to give us enough time to produce an order of that quantity.

Can I save money by fast-tracking production as opposed to expediting shipping?

Yes. While it’s not always the case, often times, our affordable fast-track options can save you money on expedited shipping. For example, if you needed an order delivered to you in six business days and your ship-to address is three transit days away (via UPS Ground), rather than doing standard production with overnight shipping, you can do a 3-day fast track with UPS Ground to avoid the high cost of expedited shipping.

How can I ensure that I will get my order by my desired delivery date?

As I mentioned before, by choosing a fast-track service, you are guaranteeing your delivery date. To do this, you have a couple different options. You can proceed with your order checkout online at custombuttons.com and select your desired due date. At that point, our website will calculate your production time and shipping accordingly. You will be able to see what method it chooses for you prior to completing your checkout. Your second option is to call in and place your order. This is the best method for any same-day or 1-day fast-track orders because it will immediately notify our customer service staff that we need to expedite the order.

So whether you are planning a last-minute event or you got caught procrastinating (Don’t worry, we all do it), Everyone Loves Buttons can still produce high-quality, Made-in-USA buttons and get them to you whenever you need them.

 

PHILADELPHIA VS EVERYONE 3″ Free Button is A Must-Have for your SuperBowl Party!

Got your Free Button for the Big Game?

We have started a new twitter account @AFreeButton where a couple times  month we will be offering A FREE BUTTON based on what is going on in life. Our first FREE BUTTON is a 3” PHILADELPHIA VS EVERYONE button available at: https://www.custombuttons.com/free-button.html

On Tuesday, the Philadelphia eagles announced they will be wearing midnight green jerseys to the super bowl. This was announced on social media with the post also including a video of the Super Bowl LII patches being sewn onto their jerseys.

No one thought the Philadelphia Eagles would win in the playoffs. Never mind being the NFC Conference CHAMPIONS after quarterback Carson Wentz went down with a season ending ACL injury.

Even though Wentz tore his ACL, he remained a contributor to the team. He has been on field level the past couple of games and troubleshoots with other quarterbacks while on the sidelines. Wentz also helps prep the team for their next opponent. This kept him involved for the rest of the season.

“Carson’s there every day, and that’s important because I’ve seen guys who get hurt, it’s hard for them to have a huge investment in the team. They’re not playing. It’s hard to watch other people on tape and do all that,” Malcolm Jenkins said. “Obviously, where we are right now, a lot of that was on Carson’s back, so we want to make sure that we don’t exclude him in everything that’s happening right now.”

Wentz, Peters and Maragos are all three of the captions on the Eagles and have been their to represent their team on and off the field. All three of these captains had their seasons cut short but have remained to be part of the experience. While the three may feel disconnected from the field, their leadership has been very helpful for the team.

Well, we are from Arizona and not Philadelphia, but are still celebrating this momentous achievement with this 3” PHILADELPHIA VS EVERYONE button as former Arizona Wildcats quarterback Nick Foles is now at the helm and leading the Philadelphia Eagles to SuperBowl LII vs the New England Patriots.

With a Philadelphia vs. Everyone button you can express your support for the Eagles and the hard work they have put in this season. This button can also be worn for several Super Bowl festivities. It can be worn to a Super Bowl watch party, to football related events, and even out in public just to show your support.

Wear your button with pride! #FlyEaglesFly

STRATEGIC SHIPPING DURING THE HOLIDAYS

I wanted to mention a few things about shipping during the holiday season. Please avoid waiting until the last minute to place your order. The normal transit times for UPS and USPS are a bit off this time of year, especially with UPS ground and even 3 day select. It seems that both carriers may tack on an extra day to deliver a package. Due to the Black friday and Cyber Monday shopping “spree”, carriers are trying to do a bit of catch up on all the packages that are in transit.

I had a package stuck on a trailer amidst a number of other trailers in VA and it was simply impossible to deliver these buttons before one of the college football games held this weekend. Not to worry.  I simply did a little research on another carrier who could deliver the goods, redid the order and shipped it via FedEx next day air Saturday delivery. Lo and behold, it made it on time. Keep in mind that it may be necessary to switch carriers depending on a number of situational factors.

Apparantly UPS air and intl air packages are guaranteed throughout the holiday season. UPS refers to this concept as the peak season service guarantee. All that means is that they will refund your money on shipping if they don’t honor their intended commitment. With that being said, this means that ONLY next day air and 2nd day air packages are affected. That leaves 3 day select (expedited ground) and ground packages out of the running for being guaranteed this time of year. So no refunds for these latter two methods of shipping.

In conclusion, please be patient with these carriers do to the package surge before the holidays. Even the UPS sales force must work at the hub this time of year. Everyone Loves Buttons is intimately familiar with transit times and is working hard to make sure you get your orders on time. We are spending extra time tracking packages after they leave our facility for added assurance that your buttons arrive promptly.

 

Fast-Track Production Guarantees Your Production Time

Need your buttons in a rush? With our Fast-Track button service you can receive your buttons as quickly as tomorrow if needed.

Please keep in mind it is less expensive to choose our Fast-Track production service and slower UPS shipping to get your buttons by the date you need them. You may still need to take into account shipping time and the possibility of expedited shipping to meet your in-hands date even with Fast-Track production service.

Drop Shipping

Do you have multiple stores or locations that need buttons? We can save you the time and hassle by drop shipping to each of your locations for you. We will just need a breakdown of quantities and locations. Please call for pricing.

Blind Shipping

Are you reselling the buttons and don’t want your customer to know? We can ship the buttons to your customer, completely blind so they think you produced and shipped the buttons. There is no additional charge for this service.

Pickup

Congratulations Coach Mike Candrea on reaching 1,500 career wins at University of Arizona

The Arizona Wildcats softball coach had himself quite a successful weekend. Coach Mike Candrea not only became the fastest coach in NCAA softball history to reach 1,500 career wins, he became the fastest NCAA coach in any sport or division to accomplish that feat. It took just 1,882 games to get there.

As if that wasn’t good enough, the Wildcats swept the top ranked Washington Huskies in the process. Arizona is in the midst of a 32-1 season and is currently ranked in the top 4 in all major national polls.

We are especially excited about Arizona’s success this season, as our owner’s daughter, Tamara Statman, is one of the Wildcats’ starters as a sophomore.

Candrea is just six wins behind University of Michigan coach Carol Hutchins for the most wins in NCAA softball history. At the pace that the ‘Cats are on this season, it would be quite surprising if he wasn’t able to take the top spot in that category as well.

In honor of this incredible accomplishment, Everyone Loves Buttons decided to create some special Zipper Pulls for Coach Candrea and the Wildcat faithful.

fullsizeoutput_9b

Entering 2017, the Wildcats had won eight national championships, reached the College World Series 21 times and produced 54 All-Americans including four National Players of the Year in 24 seasons under Coach Candrea.

Candrea’s accolades stretch beyond the NCAA, as he coached the USA Olympic team to a gold medal in 2004. That team is widely regarded as one of the most dominant Olympic teams of all time… in any sport. They were able to finish 9-0, while outscoring their opponents 51-1 in the process.

It is remarkable that the Arizona program has been able to sustain such success for decades. Since 1988, the Arizona Wildcats have won at least 33 games in every season, eclipsing the 50-win mark 17 times. It looks like they are well on their way to continuing that unprecedented run of success.

We can only hope that he will add another title to his amazing resume this season.

Customer Spotlight: Ame Dyckman, Children’s Book Author

Everyone Loves Buttons is happy to be a part of the increasing success of children’s book author, Ame Dyckman. Just as everyone loves buttons, everyone also loves a good story, and who better to tell one than the upbeat, outgoing and colorful character that is Ame.

ame6

From her vibrant hair color to her big-eared cat, Dyckman is quite the follow on Twitter as she spreads the word about her books and gives you a glimpse inside the adventure that is her life.

AmeCat

 

Dyckman authored the New York Times BestsellerWolfie the Bunny.” Along with illustrator Zachariah OHora, Ame gives us a fun and fresh perspective on some very real life scenarios including adoption, stereotypes and sibling rivalry. This book is perfect for children and parents alike, and it displays a great message…that despite our differences, we are all one in the same.

“Wolfie the Bunny” racked up plenty of accolades including:

  • Parents Magazine Best Fictional Picture Book 2015
  • The Huffington Post Best Picture Books 2015
  • ASLC Notable Book for Children
  • School Library Journal Best of the Year
  • NYPL 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing
  • Wilde Award Best Picture Books Ages 4-8
  • A Bank Street College Best Children’s Book of 2016

Dyckman and OHora followed up with “Horrible BEAR!” This book is a terrific display of friendship, something that will often test your patience, but through understanding and forgiveness, can be the most rewarding battle of your life.

The New York Times had some wonderful things to say about Dyckman and OHora’s follow up to “Wolfie the Bunny”:

“As fun as a theme park ride… Dyckman and OHora specialize in full-spectrum emotion and offbeat charm.”

 

ame3

 

Ame’s latest book entitled “You DON’T Want a UNICORN!” is set to release on Valentine’s Day 2017. This time, she teamed up with the hilarious Liz Climo to inform all the younglings to be careful what you wish for. Unicorns may look pretty and majestic, but they are a whole lot to handle as a pet in this sure-to-be new hit.

We look forward to continuing our professional relationship with Ame as she continues to produce tremendous stories for the youth of America. Everyone Loves Buttons is proud to support such a wonderful cause… child literacy and imagination!

We were honored to produce the official buttons for the 58th Presidential Inauguration

After a wild presidential election, Donald J. Trump is ready to be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. The West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol will once again play host to the Inaugural Swearing-In Ceremony on January 20, 2017, but did you know that the National Mall is property of the National Park Service?

The National Mall, also known as “America’s Front Yard,” is the most visited national park in the United States. With the U.S. Capitol Building at one end and the Lincoln Memorial at the other, the National Mall is the National Park Service’s prized gem. The Washington Monument towers above some of the most iconic monuments and museums that America has to offer, creating a majestic surrounding for one of the most important ceremonies in the world.

Custombuttons.com by Everyone Loves Buttons® had the incredible honor of being asked to produce 75,000 buttons on behalf of the National Park Service for the Inauguration on Friday. As a small business and a member of American Made Matters, we are excited to help usher in the new Made-in-USA movement with our top-of-the-line pinback buttons that were manufactured at our production facility in Phoenix, Arizona.

Some of you may be wondering why it is the 58th Presidential Inauguration if Trump is being sworn in as the 45th President. The easy answer would be to say that even if a president is reelected, each time a president is voted into office, he is inaugurated for the upcoming term. Now, there have been 21 presidents that have served more than one term in office, which may make you wonder why the numbers don’t add up. That is because on nine different occasions, a president was inaugurated for a special circumstance including the passing or impeachment of their predecessor. Those kinds of situations are classified as “Extraordinary Inaugurations” and are not categorized with the others because the people did not vote the individual being inaugurated into office.

Remember, we are in this business because Everyone Loves Buttons!

Help Everyone Loves Buttons spread awareness about breast cancer this October!

October is upon us, which means it is time to amp up the spread of awareness for one of the deadliest diseases in the world, breast cancer. Breast Cancer Awareness Month provides people with the platform not only to inform individuals about the disease but also to celebrate the battles that were won and remember those who lost the fight.

According to breastcancer.org, not only is breast cancer the most frequently diagnosed cancer in the world, it is also the leading cause of cancer deaths among women worldwide. To put that into perspective, one case of breast cancer is diagnosed in a woman every two minutes in the United States alone, and somewhere in the world, one person dies every 60 seconds from breast cancer.

As a nationally certified woman-owned business, Everyone Loves Buttons would like to invite you to join the fight and help spread awareness about breast cancer. We are currently offering a 10% discount on any breast cancer awareness products ordered through our website in the month of October. Just use the promo code “BCA10” when checking out, and you can save more then just money… you can help save lives.
