Happy 122nd Birthday, Pin-back Buttons!

On this day back in 1896, Benjamin S. Whitehead patented a design that led to the pin-back buttons we know and love today. His design featured a cellulose cover to protect a photograph that would be attached to a badge backing, ensuring it would not be torn or ruined by the elements. This was an innovative design that helped ensure the future success of pin-back buttons to the present day.

 

 

But did you know buttons predate this patent? George Washington used buttons with a flat metal face embossed with a slogan for his presidential inauguration back in 1789. These buttons would be sewn into a coat lapel, or worn as a pendant on a string.

 

Since Whitehead’s patent, pin-back buttons have been used to help promote comic characters, company products, and political campaigns. The Kellogg Company famously used them as cereal box prizes in 1945, developing a collectors series that quickly gained popularity in the United States.

 

Pin-back buttons have helped people and companies share their message with others, offering everyone a durable method to promote what they believe in. Here at Everyone Loves Buttons®, we believe in helping you share your message with the world. From advertising your business, spreading the word about your campaign, or even sharing your personal catchphrase with friends, we offer a variety of sizes and styles to suit all your button needs.

Happy Pride Month!

This June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month (LGBT Pride Month). Pride Month is celebrated every year due to the Stonewall riots in Manhattan. The Stonewall riots in Manhattan occurred in 1969 when Police raided a Gay Club called the Stonewall Inn. This raid became violent when patrons and local sympathizers began rioting against the police. While this police raid was completely legal because the club had been selling alcohol without a license, New York’s gay community started noticing the police targeting gay clubs. A month after the riots, one of the first public marches occurred in New York City where LGBT people proudly claimed their identities. This was called the Christopher Street Liberation Day March. This March inspired other cities around the world to hold LGBT marches.

Gay Pride day was originally celebrated the last Sunday in June, however the actual day was very flexible. Soon, Gay Pride became a month long series of events. Now, we celebrate gay pride month with parades, parties, picnics, and concerts. Currently, LGBT Pride Month has millions of participants, all around the world. There are also memorials held during Pride Month for people who have died of HIV/ Aids or hate crimes. The purpose of Pride Month is to recognize the impact LGBT individuals have had on history and to improve the visibility, acceptance and legal protections for LGBTQ people. Pride Month also recognizes gay pride, a movement that celebrates lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. It promotes their dignity, equal rights and makes society more aware of the challenges they face.

Another important person to recognize is the “Mother of Pride” Brenda Howard. Howard was a bisexual activist and feminist. Howard was born in the Bronx and had a passion for activism and was involved in anti-war and feminist movements. Howard also knew many people who were in the Stonewall Inn while the riots took place. Throughout her life, Howard stood for those who had their rights trampled on and was a voice for all minorities. Howard was also arrested several times for protesting, but never gave up. Howard even died during New York’s pride week due to cancer.

Pride Month is being celebrated worldwide. While many cities are celebrating by having pride festivals, some are even having gay ski week and gay cruises. During pride festivals, people usually dress in wild and unique costumes. If you are going to a gay pride festival, it is recommended that you bring: sunscreen, plenty of water, a rainbow flag, a positive sign, and an excited attitude. This will help you have the best experience at a Pride Festival.

Here at Everyone Loves Buttons we wish those who celebrate pride month to have a great and uplifting experience!

Wishing you and your families a Happy Memorial Day!

Memorial Day, in the United States, is a way of celebrating those who have given their lives while serving in the country’s military service. Memorial Day used to be celebrated on May 30th, but is now celebrated on the last Monday of May. Many Americans celebrate by visiting cemeteries or memorials. Many also hold family gatherings or watch parades.  Memorial day also marks the beginning of the summer season.

America created its first national cemetery after the civil war, which ended in the spring of 1865. By the late 1860’s, Americans began holding tributes to the soldiers who had died. This involved putting flowers on their graves and reciting prayers. In 1966, the Federal Government declared Waterloo, NY to be the birthplace of Memorial Day. Waterloo first celebrated Memorial Day on May 5, 1866. Waterloo celebrated by hosting a community-wide event, during this time, businesses closed and residents decorated the graves of soldiers with flowers and flags.

On May 5, 1868, General John A. Logan, who was the leader of an organization for Northern Civil War veterans, called for a national day of remembrance later that month called Decoration Day. The date of Decoration Day, was chosen because it wasn’t the anniversary of any particular battle. General James Garfield made a speech at Arlington National Cemetery, at the first Decoration Day and 5,000 participants decorated the graves of the 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers buried there. Many Northern states held similar commemorative events and made it an annual tradition. By 1890 each one had made Decoration Day an official state holiday.

Memorial Day originally honored only those lost while fighting in the Civil War. But, during World War I, the United States was involved in another major conflict. This resulting in the holiday commemorating American military personnel who died in all wars.

For several decades, Memorial Day continued to be observed on the day Logan picked for Decoration Day, May 30. However, in 1968 Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, making Memorial Day the last Monday in May. This created a three-day weekend for all federal employees. The same law also declared Memorial Day a federal holiday.

Over the years, Americans have celebrated Memorial Day by hosting parades that include military personnel and members of veterans’ organizations. Americans also observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries and memorials or take weekend trips or throw parties.

Here at Everyone Loves Buttons we would like to thank all of our veterans who have fought to protect the freedoms we enjoy as Citizens of the United States.

Wishing you and your families a Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

This Saturday we celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Cinco de Mayo recognizes the victory of the Mexican army over the French army in the Battle of Puebla. This battle occurred on May 5th, 1862. Cinco de Mayo is not celebrated as much in Mexico as it used to be, however the State of Puebla still finds it a very important celebration. Incontrast, Cinco de Mayo has morphed into a huge holiday in the United States, celebrating Mexican culture and heritage.

In 1861, a man was elected the president of Mexico, Benito Juarez, a lawyer and member of the indigenous Zapotec Tribe. 1861 was a difficult time to be president in Mexico. Mexico was having major financial problems and had to receive aid from European Governments. Because of this, Mexico was soon in debt. To collect on this debt, France, Britain, and Spain sent forces to Veracruz, Mexico. There, they demanded payment. Britain and Spain ended up withdrawing their forces after negotiating a settlement with Mexico. However, France took this as an opportunity to carve an empire out of Mexican territory. In late 1861, France sent a well-armed fleet to Veracruz, this forced Juarez and his military into retreat.

The French were certain they would win the battle. Six thousand troops under the command of General Charles Latrille de Lorencez were sent to attack Puebla de Los Angeles. In response, Juarez sent out two thousand indigenous Mexicans to Puebla. The Mexican army was outnumbered and did not have the necessary artillery. The battle lasted a day and ended in the French retreating after losing over five hundred men, the Mexican army lost less than one hundred men.

While this war was not a major strategic win, it represented a great victory for Mexico and strengthened the resistance movement. Now, the celebration of Cinco De Mayo is primarily celebrated in Puebla. Some celebrations include: military parades, festive events, and recreations of the battle of Puebla. In the United States, Cinco De Mayo is celebrated with parades, parties, mariachi music, dances and food. Some common foods eaten on Cinco De Mayo are tacos, enchiladas, salsa, and guacamole!

A common misconception about Cinco De Mayo is the actual history behind it. Many people outside of Mexico believe it is the date that marks the independence of Mexico. However, Mexico’s independence was declared fifty years before the Battle of Puebla. Mexico’s independence Day is actually celebrated on September 16th.

Here at Everyone Loves Buttons we hope you have a fun and safe Cinco De Mayo!

Students Compete on the World Stage at The Vex Robotics Competition

April marks the start of the Vex Robotics Competition. This is a challenging competition for young individuals in middle school, high school, and college. This competition is described as: “teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge.”

Over ten thousand teams from 32 countries play in over 750 tournaments for this competition. This is a great opportunity for young people to learn life-long critical thinking, and team-work skills.

The competitions motto is “We create tools that educators and mentors will use to shape the learners of today into the problem solving leaders of tomorrow.”

Keeping kids interested in STEM can be challenging, but the Vex Robotics Competition is a great way of getting kids involved in STEM activities. STEM is a term used to combine science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Through this competition, students of different abilities are able to create affordable and accessible robotics and be recognized for their accomplishments.

This competition even has a unique story of how it started. At the beginning of their careers, Tony Norman, an Electrical Engineer, and Bob Mimlitch, a Mechanical Engineer met. Both Norman and Mimlitch realized they had a unique approach to robotics while mentoring high school students.

According to their website, “They don’t believe that “we’ve always done it this way” or “this is how everyone does it” is ever a justification for a solution. They value creative approaches to problem solving; not just in engineering design but in all aspects of business. They are often able to find simple and elegant solutions by focusing on creativity early in the design process.”

Vex Robotics was even founded in Tony Norman’s garage in Greenville, Texas. Since then, both Tony and Bob have employed over 300 people, they have three district divisions and nine offices worldwide. The founders stand by the philosophy that hard work and passion will bring success.

Teams competing in this competition from all over the United States have asked us to create buttons for them. These teams include Community High School Team 5708, The Iron Mustangs Team 3711, The Doomsday Dogs Team 7041, The AZ Tech Eagles Team 4680, and The M Robotics Team 8110. Everyone Loves Buttons is very proud of all the teams competing in the Vex Robotics Competition and wish them all the best of luck in their robotic endeavors!

Golden State Warriors Buttons!

This years NCAA men’s tournament has been very unpredictable. It is down to the final four who will be heading to San Antonio. Loyola’s win over Kansas was a tear jerker for many people. This being due to Sister Jean watching the game in her wheelchair, and coach Porter Moser jumping over the press row to hug his family. But another unsuspecting team made it to the final four. Kansas State coach Bruce Weber sitting in the back of Philips Arena, watched his team beat down on their opponent. Weber called Loyola physical and said they switched on everything. This team has great defense, making them a team to be feared.

Before Loyola upgraded their locker room. All their plays were drawn out in the locker room for the players to see. This was a great strategy for the team and certainly aided in their victories.

The golden state warriors are also making great victories this year. They are currently the highest scoring team in the NBA. However, player Steven Curry is once again out for the final stages of the stretch run. Without Curry, the Warriors could be vulnerable to losing. Points are hard to come by when the teams all stars are off the court. This was proved true by the Warriors. Recently, the Warriors have lost six of their nine games. This has been a problem for them since 2014. Without Kevin Durant, Steven Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson, the team may struggle for the rest of the playoffs. The warriors got 12 points in the first five minutes of the game during first period. They then opened the game to a 17-7 run and take a nine point lead into the second quarter. The pacers then opened the fourth period to a 17-6 run. The Warriors were unable to then keep up with the Pacers.

College Basketball has taken note to the warriors due to their victorious 3-pointer. The Golden State Warriors will finish their fourth game with the Milwaukee Bucks. We are confident the warriors will succeed due to their victory in the head match in January.

Durant called the 3 pointer “new” because twenty years ago, kids weren’t raised with the 3 pointer. Making the warriors 3 pointer one of the best in the NBA.

Here at Everyone Loves Buttons we are fans of the Golden State Warriors and we even made buttons for them! These buttons display the words “strength in numbers.” Go Warriors! 

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Everyone Loves Buttons®

It’s Valentine’s Day Every February 14th and it marks the day we celebrate with candy, flowers and cards. But how did this holiday come to be? The holiday is credited to Saint Valentine. St. Valentine is rather mysterious in the fact that many are unsure of what occurred during his life. Some say St. Valentine was a priest who arranged marriages in secret. This is because Emperor Claudius II had banned marriage due to married men being “bad soldiers.” Once Claudius found out about what Valentine was doing, he was thrown in jail and sentenced to death. While in jail, Valentine fell in love and gave the girl a letter on the day of his death titled “from your valentine.” The 14th of February is significant because that is the day he was killed.

Others say that St. Valentine tried to help christian s escape harsh Roman prisons. St. Valentine had lots of sympathy for these people because they were frequently beaten and tortured. St. Valentine was rumored to have been killed for helping these prisoners.

But how the day became a holiday is a completely different story. Some say every February 14th people commemorate the anniversary of his death. Others say A festival called Lupercalia was started by the Romans. This festival was in the middle of February and marked the beginning of spring. During this festival, boys drew the names of girls from a box. That name would be the boys girlfriend for the festival.

Then the church wanted to make the festival a Christian celebration and decided to combine that with the celebration of Saint Valentine. This name became used more commonly to celebrate the day of love.

While we don’t know the true story behind St. Valentine, Valentine’s Day is still a great time to celebrate love. Many gift their loved ones chocolate, roses and cards. Be unique and buy your loved ones something different, something they can cherish year round.
