How Custom Buttons Can Be Used for Marketing

If you have ever seen someone walking down the street wearing a custom button pin, you have probably wondered what it’s for and what it says. Being able to Express Yourself is the biggest appeal of buttons, and what better way than by customizing your own! They stand out from the rest, and when someone wears a custom button pin, you know they have something to say to the world.

We are Hard at Work Making Custom Button Pins and Magnetic Buttons!

What is a A “pin-back button”, “pin button”, “ button pin”, “tin pin” or “button badge”?  It is a metal shape with a jewelers pin or magnet attached that can be temporarily fastened to the surface of a garment.  When you order your custom buttons from Everyone Loves Buttons® you will receive stunning buttons that are made with the highest quality parts.

What Can a Button Do?

“Your Silent Salesman”

Custom button pins are the perfect way to get your message out from a safe distance of 6 feet or more.

In this era of digital marketing, something personalized and tangible such as a button pin, can go a long way to make you more memorable to a customer or client.

Buttons are visual – A custom button worn by staff or supporters gives a company the opportunity to engage anyone they come across. A fun, vivacious company will want a button design that really pops with bright colors and images. Even steering away from the traditional round button and choosing a square or rectangle shape can help you say: “we stand out.”

A company that is more traditional, and perhaps even subdued, can use a branded logo or imagery they feel represents them well, along with basic or neutral colors. Not using bright colors and loud images does not mean the company is “boring”, but instead helps give the visual impression of being professional.

Custom Buttons are a voice! A button or custom pin gives a company the opportunity to tell people who they are in a few short words or with a picture. A simple mantra like “Carpe Diem,” or a strong word like “Believe,” can make a strong statement to everyone who sees your button. A short company or campaign slogan is something that can go a long way as well. A strong image or a slogan that stands out will keep people talking about you and your button pin. They may think about it and laugh, or it may cause them to go deep into thought, or simply jog a happy memory.

Where and How Can I Use Buttons?

There is a plethora of ways to use buttons as part of your marketing strategy, some ways you can use buttons are more basic, but others will help you stand out from the rest.

Give Away a Button

Give button pins away at a trade show, while walking down the street, at schools, anywhere you can to get your message or your information out there.

Use Buttons for a Prize Drawing

Include a code or number on your button pins and have a drawing for button-holders to win a prize. This will ensure that they hold on to them for at least a short time.

Use a Button Magnet as a Business Card

Print your business card on a button magnet and hand it out in meetings or conferences. People will never forget who you are and they can attach them to any metal surface.

Wear Your Button

Wearing your button pin will raise questions about you and why you are displaying the logo or slogan. You never know who will approach you to ask about it.

When you think of custom buttons and pins, you might think of political campaigns, or even Jennifer Anniston in Office Space sporting buttons on her suspenders. Whatever comes to mind, personalized custom buttons stand out and are a unique way to market yourself, your company, or a cause to the world.

Happy Birthday to the Pin-back Button!

Every year when July 21st rolls around, we remember at Everyone Loves Buttons® where the pin-back button craze began. 

Pin-back Button Beginnings

While the official birthday is credited to be July 21, 1896, the history goes beyond that date. Buttons were historically used to display political affiliations. This includes George Washington in 1789 for his inauguration, and Abraham Lincoln in 1860, who had his photo on his buttons. These buttons were sewn onto clothing or worn as a pendant.

The button was then modernized by a gentleman named Benjamin S. Whitehead. He had the first patent on the transparent film you see today that protects the button from scratching. Then on July 21, 1896, Whitehead & Hoag were granted a patent for the metal pin that goes on the back of the button. Whitehead & Hoag, based out of Newark, New Jersey, was the first button maker. 

Diagram from the Pin-back Button Patent

Even in the late 1800s, buttons were seen as a way to help companies and political candidates alike, advertise. 

While the printing methods and the way of creating the buttons may be different, the original design is what is essentially used today. 

Pin-back Buttons in Advertising

While they were used as political displays, buttons made their way into pop culture at the turn of the century. In 1898, buttons were used as prizes included in tobacco and chewing gum products. This was the beginning of using buttons to bump up sales. Buttons were also used as prizes in various Kellogg’s Pep Cereal.

Buttons over the years have certainly become collectibles and are able to mark moments in time. They are able to communicate what people may have been advocating for, supporting, or just what they found cool to wear.

Our History

Our button story began in 1997 in San Diego, CA., and has grown to become one of the top custom pin-back button manufacturers in the country. In March 2005 we expanded our button manufacturing capabilities and relocated to Phoenix, AZ. In 2008 we became a Nationally Certified Women Business Enterprise (WBENC). In September of 2017, we moved into our NEW modern button facility where our legendary customer service approach and production capabilities help you get the custom button size and qty. you want when you need them, on time all the time. “American Made Matters”, so we only use quality made in USA button parts along with state-of-the-art electric button machinery which is also made in the USA.

The button is apart of American culture. Join on in by saying Happy Birthday to the button by ordering some today

Buttons with USA designs

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.

Button Value You Can Count On

We only create premium 2-piece mylar topped custom pin-back buttons, magnets, and more. Custom buttons are a price-effective way to share your message!

“Caveat emptor” (ca-ve-at emptor) means “let the buyer beware”. For us at CustomButtons.com by Everyone Loves Buttons®, this means that NOT ALL pin-back buttons or button companies are created equal. Unlike our quality buttons, some companies use laminate graphics and 1-piece button parts that do not stand the test of time. Buttons like this can be dangerous and prone to breaking easily. Since our buttons are all made in-house, we can ensure strict quality control for every order that leaves our warehouse. These checks are important to ensure all of your buttons are uniform and always “Make you Look Good”!

Custom Button Variety

We offer 24 different shapes & sizes to ensure you can find your perfect button to fit your needs. Not only do we make traditional pin-back buttons, but we also offer options such as fridge magnets, clothing magnets, Zipper Pulls®, and bull-dog clips to choose from.

Different types of button backings.

100% Made in the USA

Some companies that source their parts from outside the US end up producing lower-quality buttons. Everyone Loves Buttons® is proud to say all of our button parts are made in Wisconsin and assembled in Arizona on button machines made in the USA! Buying parts that are completely made in the USA gives us as much joy as it does to produce buttons that are fully made and assembled in the USA. We hope that it makes you as excited as it makes us!

In a day and age where you can easily find products assembled in the USA with parts that are made in China, we are the exception. Our buttons are 100% made in the USA, with our button parts and machines made and assembled in the following locations:

  • Button Printing & Assembly – Phoenix, AZ
  • Button Parts, Button Magnets & Zipper Pulls® Versa Backs® Mfg. – Fond du Lac, WI
  • Button Machines Mfg. – Fond du Lac, WI
  • Die-Cut Magnets Printing & Assembly – San Diego, CA

Stop buying inferior quality buttons with parts sourced from China and pins that fall off after a single-use. We are extremely transparent in where our parts come from because we want you to rest easy that everything is USA made. Why would you buy from anywhere else when you can get it faster, and with better customer service, than from overseas? Quality you can trust comes from purchasing from a Nationally Certified Women-Owned American company, using only USA made buttons parts and machinery.

Customer Spotlight: Veterans Home of California-Yountville’s Buttons

The Veterans Home of California-Yountville (VHC-Yountville) was founded in 1884 and is located in Napa Valley, CA. They are home to the largest veterans home in the country. VHC-Yountville hosts over 1,000 disabled or aged men and women who have served on various fronts in the military. There are many resources for residents for personal care and support to ensure that the health care needs of the veterans are met.

VHC-Yountville offers many different kinds of activities for the residents regardless of the level of care needed. They have a theater, executive golf course, bowling lanes, and a resident operated television station just to mention a few of the many facilities available to residents.

Lately, VHC-Yountville has been using customized buttons in the last few weeks to highlight the message that their health care workers and residents are vitally instrumental in getting through the health crisis together. They have been able to add a little light to a situation that may feel grim at times. Everyone Loves Buttons® has found that custom buttons have morale-boosting properties. These buttons are certainly playing an important role during this health care crisis in nursing homes and other health care institutions throughout the country.

The most recent buttons they have requested say “You Are Important”. These buttons can give their residents more than just a smile but a feeling. Feelings can be created by just reading something positive. That is what we try to do every day at Everyone Loves Buttons®. We want to give an outlet for companies to convey feelings with others as it is especially important during a crisis to create strength together.

Institutions like VHC-Yountville are truly the backbone of our country. They allow men and women who have served our great country to be able to receive treatment and live out their days in a wonderful, supportive community. As a button provider, we are proud to be able to donate buttons to their organization and provide a morale boost during this time of uncertainty, and hope to continue making their custom buttons for years to come.

Vital businesses like VHC-Yountville have undergone such an extreme change in a short time. Here at Everyone Loves Buttons®, it has been enlightening to see how and where custom buttons are now being used. We are happy to be able to make custom buttons that allow companies like VHC-Yountville to encourage safe and stronger connections between their employees and their residents.

Thank you Veterans Home of California-Yountville for allowing us to fill your button needs!

What can I use buttons for during COVID-19?

At this time buttons can be used to give messages to your customers, residents, or employees. These can range from moral boosting slogans like VHC-Yountville’s buttons to reminding others to stay six feet away from each other. For retailers and restaurants, buttons can also be used to display your current promotions from a safe distance. That way, your message can be seen on many different fronts when your employees safely interact with your customers.

Do you only make pin-back buttons?

How many buttons should I order?

It truly does depend on the use. If the button is going to be used for your employees, order just over the number of employees you have. That way, if a button gets lost it can be replaced and your employees do not have to share with each other. If you are giving buttons out to others, use your discretion on how many people will take and wear the buttons.

How long will it take to get my order?

We still are maintaining a full staff during this time and we will be able to produce and ship your orders like normal. Depending on the size of the order, we offer a FAST-TRACK 1- 4 business day production time for custom button orders needing quick turnaround times.

Using Custom Buttons as Your “Silent Salesman”

Have Something to Say? The Best Place is on a Custom Button!

Our pin-back custom buttons are perfect for your giveaways, advertising, fundraising, or promotions. Buttons are a perfect conversation starter for your customers to ask about promotions they may not be familiar with, or other questions they may have about your business.

Think of your buttons as your “silent salesman”. When your employees wear buttons it helps notify your customers about promotions both in-store and/or online. Plus, when customers wear your buttons, it is a way for them to be a walking billboard for YOU.

Backpack with buttons

People put buttons everywhere! They wear them on their clothing and accessories, and advertise your business for you when when others ask what they are for. The more that a business can get advertised out of the brick and mortar setting, the better!

First-hand anecdotes from customers are a powerful tool when it comes to advertising. Genuine conversations from your current customers to potential customers about your business leads to “word of mouth” discovery. Buttons can help begin these conversations, with loyal customers encouraging others to support the brands they display and love.

Buttons are Perfect for Retailers, Grocery Stores, and Small Businesses

Pile of buttons for advertising

Pin-back buttons can let your message travel fast! Pin-back buttons are the perfect size to “express yourself”, and they come in many sizes, both small and large. Companies love to use them for marketing their brand because they are “silent salesman” for employees. The button does all the talking for your employees, especially if they are not directly interacting with a customer. The more the customer can see your promotion, the better your sales will be.

If buttons are given or sold to customers, they become mini billboards being paraded through town by your satisfied customers. And people can take them wherever they go: on their backpacks, jackets, hats and more! What’s a better consumer endorsement than seeing your brand on others?

Custom Buttons are Super Affordable

Display of buttons used for advertising

Businesses big and small love to purchase pin-back buttons because they are inexpensive and are very effective to get the word out about your promotion. In fact, the more you purchase the more money you save with our quantity price breaks.

Buttons are not just for political campaigns, they are also popular with retailers, grocery stores, and small businesses. One of our clients, Cabela’s, uses buttons to notify their customers about the deals they are featuring for the month. After visiting a local Cabela’s, we have seen not just one employee who is wearing the button, but all their employees are wearing buttons. They are using the buttons to share their message and promote their current sales. Custom buttons are an economical choice that produces great results time and time again!

Custom Buttons are Part of History

Keepsake boxes with items from days gone by will likely have a button or two that mark an occasion in a person’s life. For many people, buttons hold the memories of their first rock concert, campaign election, and other events they participated in.

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of going to an antique show or state fair, you probably stumbled across some pin-back buttons from years past. Collectors love to assemble a collection of buttons that were used in promoting products like cereals, tobacco, and gum.

Today’s businesses still see the value in advertising their products with buttons because they are high demand collector’s items. While the businesses of yesterday may not have anticipated this collectability, they successfully used pin-back buttons to get the word out about their products. The more original and unique your artwork and catchphrase is, the better your chances are of having your buttons become a timeless piece of advertising history.

Using buttons to mark your business’s special occasions is a great way to keep track of your company’s history. Use the same design or update it every year, we are ready to help you begin the next chapter of your business’s success!

Custom Buttons are Just Plain FUN!

Let’s not beat around the bush, pin-back buttons have had great success because they are fun for young and old alike. Whether you are advertising for your small business, fundraising for a worthy cause, or raising awareness of a new policy, customized buttons are sure to communicate what you want effectively. Plus since you can use your logos and favorite sayings, you can show more of your company’s personality to your customers. Buttons are the perfect “silent salesman”, and let you relax while it does the talking.

Pocky Day buttons

Pin-back buttons are not the only option that we offer for “walking billboards”. We also have clothing magnets and bulldog clip buttons for those who do not want to put a tiny hole in their clothing. While these backings may be a bit more expensive than the traditional button, they are worth it for the ease of the button being able to be applied and removed to clothing. There is a huge variety of sizes with over 10 sizes to choose from. You are sure to find what you want. Anything that you can imagine, we can make for you.

Custom buttons have evolved to be the ideal way to quickly communicate an idea to others. With more and more new policies being enacted by small businesses, retail, and grocery stores, all in-store shoppers need to be quickly notified to make shopping experiences smoother. Sometimes all it takes is a simple button on an employee to explain your policy changes, or to prompt customers to ask for more information.

Buttons are a simple hands-off way for your business to share vital messages about your business, promotions, and specific policies in a quick and easy way. Plus, with the option to fully customize the design, the opportunities are limitless to what you can do with your customized buttons! Ready to order buttons for your business?

Submitting a Custom Button Quote

The process of creating buttons is a very creative affair, with almost limitless possibilities. Our orders often begin with a custom button quote, which are essential for helping our customers know what we offer them for their custom button orders.

Our website, CustomButtons.com, makes it especially easy to order your custom pin-back buttons online. We take pride in our website and how fast and easy this process is for our customers!

There are two options for ordering custom buttons online:

  • Directly order from our website if you have your artwork ready and know exactly what buttons you want to order. The direct order option can provide the price per button, along with shipping costs and your total order cost. This is a good option for orders under 15,000 pieces. If you have a quantity over 15,000 please give us a call for pricing.
  • Submit a FREE quote online and our customer service representatives will provide you personal step-by-step service. They will be able to help you with every part of the button ordering process, especially if your order includes multiple designs and backings.

Quotes are the perfect choice if you are looking for pricing for our various products but are not ready to place your order immediately. We currently offer 21 different sizes of buttons and 14 different types of backings. That’s 294 options to choose from! It may seem overwhelming to have that many available options, and our legendary button specialists will provide you with a free and detailed button consultation to ensure we meet all your custom button needs. There is no button order that is too big, too small, or too extensive for our button team!

How do I submit a custom button quote?

There are three main steps to submitting your free online quote:

Step 1

This section is about your custom button specifications. Choose the button size, quantity, and backing type you would like pricing for, and upload an art file if available.

Uploading an artwork file can help us determine the best button fit for your needs, and answer any artwork questions you might have. We have talented in-house graphic designers that can make your vision a reality if you do not have a design ready for your buttons.

You may add as many products as you would like with the “+ Add Another Product” button. There is no limit on how many products you can receive a quote for, giving you the freedom to get pricing for all your buttons in one quote!

Step 2

The calendar on the far left allows you to select the date you need your buttons delivered by. We aim to always have your buttons delivered on time for your organization or event. We can provide same-day (quantity of up to 2500) and 1-3 day fast track service along with a guaranteed delivery date.

The next option asks how you heard about us. This information helps us find out how we can reach more people who love and need custom buttons!

If you are requesting a quote with an ASI/SAGE number, or if you plan on ordering buttons for resale, the next section is where you would indicate that. It is important to note you are going to use this order for resale so we can meet your specific needs, especially if additions like barcodes are needed on your custom buttons.

The final box in this section is for additional questions, comments or special instructions that you may have. This is so you can bring attention to any custom options that you may need for your buttons, and any special requests you need pricing for.

Step 3

This is the last step of the online quote process. Your shipping information is very important for us to be able to calculate how quickly we will be able to have your order delivered, and any additional costs for expedited delivery dates. Be sure to also provide a phone number and email address so we can contact you about your button order pricing!

We ask for detailed information in the online quote form because we want to be able to provide you the best service possible. The more information we have about your potential custom button order, the more accurate your quoted price will be.

We have made the quote process seamless and easy for everyone. This is because we want the process to be easy and simple for everyone involved. And best of all, receiving a quote is FREE. We never charge for order quotes because we want to help make sure you order the custom buttons perfect for your needs.

What if I want to place an order with a custom button quote?

After you confirm you would like to proceed with a quoted price, and you provide us your billing information, we will send you a digital proof for you to review. Our quoted price includes all design and production fees, meaning you can revise your design as much as needed before we make your buttons. Once a final design is approved, we send your buttons to production.

Our production time does not begin until after the final proof approval. It typically takes five business days after proof approval for our standard production times. For orders with over 10,000 buttons, please give us a call for production schedule and pricing.

You are not limited to just an online quote if you want to speak to someone over the phone. Just give us a call during regular business hours 623-445-9975 and one of our representatives will help you with your order.

Why are these custom button quotes hassle-free?

We provide hassle-free quotes because we do not want you to stress about getting custom buttons made, especially if you are on a tight deadline. We want to provide a streamlined service to you so you can focus on your projects and not have to worry about your buttons!

What is the benefit of requesting a quote?

Since we have so many different button sizes and backing types available, we want to be able to provide accurate pricing for your potential button order. We do not want to provide general price ranges, and we pride ourselves in giving complete and exact pricing with every quote. Our quotes are a great tool to assess which product and services you would like to use for your button order.

Button Packs to Promote Your Business

One of the best parts of being in the button business is seeing people’s creative ideas come to life. Recently, we have seen an influx of beautifully designed button packs being ordered from our clients. These are a great way for companies to market themselves during special events. The button packs include a customized button (or buttons) with a custom backer card. These backer cards can be embellished with logos, sayings, or even promotional discounts.

Aside from the marketing aspect, button packs can provide consumers with an experience by telling stories with visuals. By using button packs to tell your company’s narrative, it will attract your customer’s attention and give focus to your current offerings.

Button packs are also a great tool for promoting your upcoming events and productions, and make great keepsakes for your customers. Each button becomes a collectable item for your customers to show off by pinning to their jackets, backpacks, hats, and more to express their support for your events. The Broadway Musical Sing Street used their button packs to provide merchandise for their fans, and to show them how they can connect via social media to encourage continued engagement with their fans.

Not only are button packs great commemorative items for events, but button packs are great for companies with upcoming promotions. Bijou Basin Ranch, a yak fiber and yarn company, made excellent use of their button packs. This specific button pack had a backer card that informed the holder that they would get 25% off at the trunk show that was at a later date. However, the individual would have to wear the button at the event to get the discount. It was a great promotion to put the brand in the mind of the consumer; especially since there was an event was coming up where the company would be and the customer may attend. 

Button packs for Bijou Basin

These custom buttons had several positive effects for Bijou Basin Ranch. They were able to receive free advertising through their fans wearing the button around the event, and letting others know about the brand and promotion when asked by curious observers. This would let other fans of the company know they are in attendance at the event, and promotes brand discovery by others who might otherwise not find out about their company. The button also incentivizes the individual by giving them a discount in return for wearing the button. The customer may not have thought about using the Bijou Basin Ranch’s fiber or yarn before receiving the button pack. However, now since they are receiving the discount, they may opt to use it instead of other companies.
