Our Buttons are 100% American Made

There is nothing that tops American ingenuity. As our country begins to head back to work, companies of all types have been able to adjust to these trying times. It demonstrates how Americans are willing to work together to keep each other healthy and safe. This goes from mask wearing, to social distancing, and curbside pickup. No matter how hard times get, companies are able to make things work.

Now as everything starts to heading closer to what we may view as “normal” there is a private company, SpaceX, who has partnered with NASA to launch a shuttle into space. Not only is the launch based out of Florida, but it is using American equipment. It is a true example of what can happen when you put your mind to it; the American Dream is alive and well. SpaceX has taken a time that has had lower morale throughout the general population, and is working on bringing in a new era in American society.

At Everyone Loves Buttons®, we have been able to adapt to various economic realities over the years. These include the early 2000’s recession, the Great Recession in 2007, and now the effects of COVID-19. We see them as just a speed bump on our company’s journey. Luckily, we are always able to make it through and are better because of it as we have learned how to manage these circumstances over the years. No matter the situation, we always make sure that we are true to our word and that everything we sell is made here domestically in the USA.

Using Buttons For Social Distancing

One thing that we have learned so far from 2020 is the importance of taking care of ourselves and those around us. Not only mentally, but physically when it comes to taking health precautions. As a company, we have made it a priority to ensure that our employees are up to date on hand washing procedures, refrain from touching their face, and do not come to work if they are sick.

We encourage all of our customers to be safe, and our pin-back buttons can help remind others about practicing safe interactions during this time. With our buttons it is easy and quick to communicate to others that someone is avoiding direct physical contact, while avoiding awkward interactions or explanations. It will be much easier for their peers to respect their boundaries, as the visual message will be communicated even without being verbally mentioned.

Wearing a button stating that someone is practicing social distancing or not shaking hands is a clear non-verbal safeguard and is helpful when others may not necessarily want, or be able, to explain their situation. That way, there is no awkwardness and people are able to respect the personal space of others. This is not just relevant for the current pandemic of COVID-19 and the annual flu season, but also for those who may not shake hands or have other reasons for social distancing.

What is “Social Distancing”?

Social distancing is a term used to describe when an individual begins to distance themselves from social situations where groups of people may congregate. This includes activities like attending sports games, going out with friends to restaurants, or going to the movies. In our home state of Arizona there are currently recommendations to cancel or postpone mass gatherings of over 50 people, and the President of the United States has recently advised avoiding groups of over 10 people.

It is important to note that social distancing does allow for essential tasks to be made, like buying groceries or going to work. The key idea is to keep a larger than normal space between yourself and your peers when outside of your home, and then remaining inside your home as much as possible. Avoiding situations where there are a lot of people in one area can help prevent the spread of illness, as there are fewer people in one spot for an illness to infect.

This button design helps declare that you intend to practice social distancing when away from your home, and will help others quickly recognize and respect your personal space.

Why are These Buttons Important?

Although flu season occurs every year, this season there is also a COVID-19 pandemic. Since flu season is annual, individuals do not always take caution when it comes to the health and safety of others. Consumers can be proactive by wearing the “I Don’t Shake Hands” and “Social Distance” pin-back buttons during this time to help prevent close contact interaction with others. These visual indications allow for quick communication without awkward explanations, and are an ideal impulse purchase item given the current focus on personal and public health in our current society.

What Type of Wearable Backings do You Make?

Traditional Pin-Back Button

Our pin-back buttons can be attached to nearly every piece of clothing: shirts, hats, or bags. The sizes range from 7/8” all the way to 6” in various shapes like rectangles, squares, ovals, and circles. This type of button backing is considered the traditional/standard backing.

Clothing Magnets

We offer several types of clothing magnet backings for our buttons, which suit a variety of situations. The first is a small round clothing magnet for our smaller sized buttons. Although small in size, they are powerful and will definitely stay in place!

The second is a clothing bar magnet that is excellent for larger buttons that may pull on clothing due to their weight. These magnets are also able to stick on surfaces that are magnetic, like refrigerators.

Bulldog Clips

Our bulldog clips can be easily attached to ID tags, which makes them perfect for anyone who does not want several buttons on your shirt.

How Can These Buttons be Sold in Stores?

One way these buttons can be sold in the form of our button boxes. Our button boxes provide a quality impulse purchase for consumers, and are perfect for placing on your check out counters.

The MSRP is 3 for $5, or 1 for $1.99. These boxes are designed to have 88 buttons, with the attached backer card, per box. The backers of our custom buttons and boxes can be designed to your preferences. In the case of the “Help Stop The Spread” buttons, they come pre-designed, with a retail and fundraiser option to choose from. Fundraiser boxes, or FunD for short, help raise money for the CDC Foundation, which is working hard to stop the spread of COVID-19. If you have a favorite charity/non-profit you would like to raise money for, our FunD boxes can be customized with the organization of your choice.

For large volume orders, button boxes can also be customized with your company logos.

Where do these buttons come from?

We are proud that all of our products are made in the USA and have no foreign components. Everything from the metal button parts to the graphics printing is made in the USA, and every button is assembled at our facility in Phoenix, Arizona. All of our employees follow proper cleanliness protocol to ensure that your products are made to our high standards. We are always committed to providing you the best service, and work hard to ensure you are happy with your buttons.

We are also proud to be a Woman-Owned Small Business, certified by the WBENC. Check out our past blog post to read more about this amazing organization, and don’t forget to #BuyWomenOwned!

Let’s help spread awareness and limit the spread of this illness that is altering our way of life here in the USA.

Some people just feel uncomfortable saying they are socially distancing, and now they can wear it on a hat, jacket, backpack, purse or more so they don’t have to feel they are offending anyone. Help us all spread the word so we can limit the spread of COVID-19 and other diseases.
