Everyone Loves Buttons® has grown a lot since our humble beginnings in 1997 when we first operated from a two bedroom apartment in San Diego, CA moved to a new home and ran the company out of our 2 car garage for about 2 years then into a 1,500 sq. foot facility then to our 5000 square foot facility complete with a loading dock in Phoenix, AZ.
Its been a fascinating journey filled with twists or turns. We almost never know what surprises are in store for us from one week to the next. One week we are invited to become a Facebook vendor, the next week we are pinning 100,000 buttons for a rush order.
September was an especially active month with political button season in full swing. October has been also shaping up to be busy due to it being Breast Cancer Awareness month. We are gaining international clientele and serve a wide array of industries which include high tech, food service, health care and top US Colleges. We ship buttons to Australia and Trinidad regularly as well as the UK and Hong Kong. In addition, we have implemented a new customer service review process and have increased our fulfillment capabilities with our special packaging options which we are capable of doing for what ever needs arise by our clients.
For large custom buttons orders of one or more palettes, companies can benefit from lower cost freight shipping if there is either a dock or a forklift on the receiving end. Companies can save money by arranging their own freight pickup through their individual shipping departments (they tend to have existing freight contracts with specific carriers) since we have a dock. Also, we extend deep freight discounts to our clients and can also arrange for transport through UPS freight which is an unbelievably reliable system. I cannot think of a time when a palette didnt deliver on the exact day expected.
Indeed, ELB will be entering our 18th year in the buttons business come the end of November. We can serve ALL of your custom buttons needs with our 17 sizes/shapes to choose from. With so many events happening in the next couple of months, give us a call and well be happy to discuss your pinback custom button order.
