Customer Spotlight: Arizona State Parks and Trails

Our next Customer Spotlight shines on Arizona State Parks and Trails, who recently had some custom pin button boxes made for their retail shops. These button boxes feature stunning photos of scenery and wildlife that can be seen at some of Arizona’s state parks, as well as some fun outdoor themed graphics.

ASPT also helps develop outdoor recreational areas within cities and towns across the state. These include hiking trails, playgrounds, picnic areas, sport-related courts, and more! This helps encourage people to engage in more outdoor activities, and gets both locals and travelers alike outside to enjoy what Arizona has to offer.

They also work to keep historical records of artifacts and events within each park they manage.  This information is important to keep track of, as each new find reveals more details about the historic past of Arizona’s land and the cultures that have lived here. Visitors can report their finds to their specialized department for review, and if accepted they contributed to finding out more information about Arizona’s history!

With 10+ button designs, families can make an adventure out of visiting each park to collect the next Junior Ranger button.

Covid-19 vaccine buttons

Covid-19 Vaccinated Buttons

Have you noticed how quickly the messages we share have changed during the current pandemic? We definitely have! Our owner was interviewed by Channel 12 News to talk about her experience with making custom buttons during the pandemic. Watch the video below to hear about the newest messaging trend, Covid-19 vaccinated buttons:

Throughout the current pandemic we have been proud to be able to make buttons with informative and positive messages for essential workers and the public. Today we talk about the top Covid-19 related button trends we have seen, and how you can order your own customized buttons and stickers!

Covid-19 Safety Customized Buttons

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused many changes in the messages we want to share with the each other. This is especially true as new information quickly emerged about the virus. Most notable were the different public safety measures that have been needed and how to remind others to follow these safety practices. Healthcare and public safety were the most popular topics for customized buttons over the past few months, with most designs falling into the following three categories.

Hand Washing Buttons

Covid-19 button designs about washing your hands and staying six feet away

One of the first trends to emerge were buttons and magnets focused on washing hands to stop the spread of the virus. These buttons have been used to remind others to always use soap and be through. This message emerged as officials said it could help keep you safe after touching surfaces.

Hand washing icons and bold text were mainly used to grab the attention of others. These layouts influenced other button designs, as they were easy to understand and read from a distance.

Social Distancing Buttons

Button designs with a social distancing message

This topic quickly became one of the most popular during the pandemic, and continues to be important as the pandemic continues. Small businesses, restaurants, and healthcare facilities used buttons with this message to remind others about their new social distancing practices.

Customized buttons and pins proved to be a great way of encouraging social distancing from the recommended six feet. Our 3” buttons were the most popular, as large bold text and logos fit perfectly on the larger buttons we carry.

Mask Wearing Buttons

Blue button with the text "I'm smiling under this mask"

Throughout the pandemic, mask wearing buttons were definitely the most popular designs for our customers. These buttons served to remind customers, employees, and patients about wearing a mask to stop the spread of the virus. Our larger buttons kept their bold mask-related designs large enough to see even while social distancing.

Mask wearing also brought a new challenge to how people expressed themselves: how can you show emotions without showing your full face? Our creative customers found the perfect solution with buttons, by using designs about smiling!

Covid-19 Vaccine Buttons

Covid-19 vaccine buttons

With several vaccines now approved and beginning distribution across the country, the newest trend to emerge is Covid-19 vaccinated buttons. These buttons tell others that you have now received the vaccine.

Currently these buttons are mainly used by healthcare and essential workers to let patients know they are vaccinated against the virus. However, as more of the public becomes eligible to receive the vaccine we anticipate more people wanting to show their vaccinated status.

Official Designs by the Center for Disease Control for Healthcare Workers

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is working to make it easy for healthcare workers to let others know when they have been vaccinated with their official Covid-19 vaccinated button and sticker designs. With two color options, these designs are perfect for making buttons and stickers and are easy to identify from a distance.

The Importance of Covid-19 Buttons and Stickers

Our pin-back buttons and clothing magnets are the perfect choice for employees and healthcare workers to show their vaccinated status on a daily basis. Buttons are reusable and feature a clear protective mylar covering over your design. This allows you to properly sanitize your buttons, without compromising the design!

Our stickers are a perfect choice to give to give to people receiving the vaccine. They can proudly show their vaccination status, while helping others become more aware of the vaccine. This could help others become more confident in the vaccine, and even get people excited for when they can get their own vaccinated sticker, too!

How to Order Your Own Covid-19 Vaccinated Buttons and Stickers

Here at Everyone Loves Buttons®, we make it easy to order your own custom buttons, magnets, and stickers. And if you have any questions, we are here to help! Through our website you can select what product you want, the specific size, and even choose a specific quantity for your order. No order is too big or too small, we can do them all!

The Most Famous Political Campaign Button

Some people collect stamps or coins, while others invest in baseball cards or Barbie® dolls. But there is also a whole world of collectors whose item of choice is the political campaign button. One appraiser said that political buttons are like a “microcosm of political history for the 20th century”, with many treating them with the same reverence given to the first American flags, the Declaration of Independence, and other artifacts from America’s past. It does not matter if you are a Democrat, Republican, or Independent, campaign buttons are invaluable pieces of American history.

Early Political Campaign Buttons

George Washington wore the first political button, a clothing button made of brass, in 1789 at his first Presidential inauguration with the phrase “G.W.-Long Live the President.” The slogan was based off the British’s Long Live the King cry. An original George Washington cloth button could now easily be worth tens of thousands of dollars.

In 1860, Abraham Lincoln and Hannibal Hamlin ran for the Presidency. Many believe that Lincoln was the first president to use buttons as a true campaign tool. Political button pins during this era started to feature daguerreotypes of the candidates and is the first time portraits ever appeared on campaign buttons. One of these buttons, in perfect condition, would be worth over $1000 to most modern collectors.

The first mass production of metal buttons, the design we are familiar with today for most campaigns, happened during the 1896 William McKinley campaign for president. These campaign buttons were “celluloid” buttons, with one side of a metal disk covered with paper containing the printed message, and protected by a layer of clear plastic.  It’s ironic that campaign button pins haven’t changed much over the years; political buttons are still produced with a metal casing, covered with paper and protected by clear plastic we call mylar. The only difference is that we now have a jewelers safety pin attached to the button back.

One of the most famous uses of campaign buttons occurred during the 1940 U.S. presidential election, when Wendell Willkie’s campaign produced millions of buttons in response to news stories about President Franklin D. Roosevelt. It reads: “That’s right Franklin, Spinach is Spinach”. According to NPR, this button can be traced back to a New Yorker cartoon, where a mother and daughter are sitting around a dinner table. The mother says “It’s broccoli, dear”, while the daughter pushes away the plate and responds, “I say it’s spinach and I say the hell with it.” This is to suggest Willkie’s nature it to “tell it like it is”, while Roosevelt is guilty of spinning the truth.

Political Campaign Button Prices

Aside from the Washington button, the price of past campaign buttons doesn’t always rise in relation to its age. Some of the most popular buttons have sentimental value attached to them, such as buttons created for the Kennedy Presidential campaign. “A Kennedy-Humphrey button can be worth $300-$500. This outranks even Lincoln, Roosevelt and Huey Long memorabilia,” said collectibles writer Joyce Worley. Obviously the more obscure buttons, such as those with spelling errors, are considered more collectible simply because they are harder to come by.

“Since the turn of the century, the political button has just dominated the political advertising, until television came in. Now it’s a dying art.” Political campaign button collectors are hoping to preserve the art and the history that is inherently a part of those buttons for generations to come. Whether it’s for President, Governor, Mayor or local election campaign, button pins will stand the test of time.  

Showing support (or disdain) for presidential candidates through button pins is a practice nearly as old as the office of the 1st U.S. President George Washington, and over time it has evolved with the changing political landscape we are living in today.  Campaign Button Pin history may be hundreds of years old, but still remain wearable signs of the times.  Even today’s COVID-19 themed campaign buttons will become part of a collection one day.

Button pins are now making a comeback as they can be seen from a safe 6 foot distance and can be customized to your needs. Who knows, the buttons we make for you might become collectable 100 years from now!

Customer Spotlight: Seattle Seafair Clowns

Our next customer spotlight features the Seattle Seafair Clowns who have been uplifting spirits for over 50 years. They have an established legacy of community service to visit nursing homes, hospitals, and other care centers in the Puget Sound region. They have been using buttons for years and use them at many events that they attend. 

Woody, one of the Seafair Clowns, sat down to answer some questions. 

Seattle Seafair Clowns group photo

How did you become a Seafair Clown? 

One community service turned into another. I was involved with The Multiple Sclerosis Society here in Seattle. I had signed up for MS mountain bike events to raise money for MS for several years. Eventually, I got more involved and ended up chairing the event. It was at one of the MS meetings that Patty, The President of the Washington chapter, mentioned something about “Seafair” (a summer festival in Seattle). I told her I loved Seafair and collected Seafair memorabilia, mostly buttons and pins. She told me to come into your office. Patty had a big display of Seafair Clown buttons on the wall and told me her husband was a Seafair Clown. She said that I should come out and guest clown with everyone sometime especially since they go up to New West Minster in Canada and it’s a lot of fun.  There was a reason Patty was President. She knew how to work things, and people, in a good way! “You have trucks and trailers, right?” “Maybe you could pull the Surrey up to Canada for them”.  The Surrey is a highly modified 1956 Divco milk truck. I said yes and had a great time, and I moved on from volunteering for MS and became a Seafair Clown. 

My first year as a clown I turned my Halloween costume into my “bit”. I had dressed up as Frankenstein every year- and would go out with my kids when they went trick or treating. I’m 6’1” and had custom boots made that added 6” with a couple more inches from the prosthetic head made for a pretty good visual. I added some colorful clothes and clown make-up and “Frankie” was born.  Frankie only had a one year run and after that I became “Woody” because my last name is Wood. I rotate between a “Blue Angel” and a Mariner baseball player. 

What is the history of the Seafair Clowns? 

The Seafair Clowns have been around since 1955, or maybe a little earlier. Our history is a bit foggy. We do a few things throughout the year, but for about one month every summer it is our time to shine. We do numerous community events, visit senior centers and nursing homes. We also visit special needs adults and children and do numerous parades. The biggest of all of the parades is the Seattle Torchlight Parade. Driving around the city on our way to and from events and just seeing the look on people’s faces is the best! I love being a clown as we get to see and meet so many different people. We also get to do things that the average person might not get to do. My personal favorite thing we do is visit the senior citizens. We get lots of one on one time and it feels good to hold a hand and make them smile. It’s true that you get so much more back when you give. I’m thankful for the opportunity. 

How has the pandemic affected The Seafair Clowns? 

Well, sadly it has completely shut us down. EVERYTHING we do involves large groups of people or being inside with lots of people, many who are elderly or compromised in some way. Hopefully we are back at it next year.

How do buttons tie into your group? 

Buttons are a big part of our group! Everyone is always eager to see what the new button will look like. We hand them out at events and along parade routes. Many people collect them and turn out at events just to get one. In addition to our “Seafair” button we make member buttons and special event buttons. Like I said early, I was a Seafair button collector WAY before I ever became a clown. It wasn’t long after I joined the group that I took over button duties. Talk about the fox guarding the hen house!

You can find out more about the Seafair Clowns at www.seafairclowns.org. The Seafair Clowns Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit group that exists to support the Seattle Seafair Clowns community service projects including events at Ronald McDonald House, children’s hospitals, local senior centers, special person’s holiday cruise, and more.

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?

FAQ Series – Part 2: Turnaround, Production, & Shipping

turnaround time, production, and shipping

Welcome back for Part 2 of our FAQ series! This blog will be all about our turnaround time, production, and shipping. Our last post featured Product Questions, which you can read more about here.

When it comes to turnaround time, production times, and shipping times, things can be a little confusing. Hopefully this answers some of your questions! If you still have further questions, we’d love to help! You can give us a call at (623-445-9975), send us an email (sales@custombuttons.com), or reach us on our website chat!

Let’s begin!

“Am I better off to get Fast-Track Production or Rush Shipping?”

First you need to enter in your quantity and delivery zip code and click the ‘calculate a price button’ on the ordering page. Then a calendar will pop up with dates that you can choose from. When you choose an earlier delivery date, the website will calculate the most cost effective way to get the buttons to you! Our button experts on our sales team also use this method to determine the best price for your delivery date!

If you have difficulties using the website, we are more than happy to give you a quote or help you! You can reach us by phone, email, or by chat to help you place your order. You can also check out our video here, that walks through the steps of placing an order and also talks about Fast Track and Shipping options.

“What do you mean by Production Time and Shipping Time?”

Production time is the time that it will take us to produce your buttons. Our standard production time is 5 business days for orders less than 10,000 pieces. If we finish your order sooner than standard production time, we will ship it out so you can receive your buttons early! When you have a Fast Track order, the Fast Track determines the number of days it takes us to make your order. We offer Same-Day and 1-4 day Fast Track production times.

Shipping time is the time is takes for your buttons to reach you once they leave us after production. Ground shipping times vary depending on how close or how far you are away from us in Phoenix, AZ. We ship with UPS and Fedex. Typically and each carrier has different transit dates and days they deliver on. We will ship your buttons the most efficient way possible to ensure your order arrives to you on the date that you need them by.

“What do you mean by turnaround time?

When it comes to the verbiage, turnaround time is the total time it takes to produce and deliver your buttons to you.

“Can I rush my order?”

Yes definitely! We offer a Fast-Track Service, which guarantees that your buttons will be produced the Same Day, 1-4 Day Production times, and we also offer expedited shipping options. Sometimes it takes a combination of the two to ensure that your buttons will arrive by your selected date. Unlike other button companies, our fees associated with our Fast-Track service are minimal. Beware of companies charging you up to 125% to rush your button order!

“I need my buttons tomorrow! Can you help?”

Absolutely! Here at Everyone Loves Buttons ®, we specialize in rush orders, and we offer a same day production and next day air shipping option on orders that are up to 2,500 buttons. If you are placing an order on our website, our cut off time is 11AM Arizona Time, however we can accept orders after that if you give us a call. The only catch to placing an order that needs to be delivered tomorrow is, everything needs to be approved by 1PM Arizona Time. This allows us enough time to produce and get your order out the same day.

“Do you ship internationally?”

Of course! International shipping can take a bit longer than domestic shipping depending on the country that the buttons are going to. We insure/declare all shipments for their actual ‘per piece’ value. This ensures that your buttons are insured when shipping out of the country. We try to make sure that duties and taxes are built into the cost of your shipping so you don’t have to worry about that. Costs are based off of the recipient country, and can change and you may owe more to receive your package.

“My buttons didn’t arrive the date that I needed them, what do I do?”

Our deepest apologies that the buttons didn’t arrive on time. We ship out every order so that it will either arrive on time or sometimes arrive early. We put our faith in our shipping carriers to deliver our products on time. Sometimes weather or truck issues can cause delays.

In situations like this, we start by contacting our shipping rep, whether it was with UPS or Fedex. From there we initiate the refund process for the shipping to be refunded. We will issue a refund for the shipping if the buttons did not arrive on time. If you do not want the button order due to the delivery being late, please send them back to us and we will issue a complete refund. We do not issue refunds for incorrect addresses provided or businesses being closed at the time of delivery.

“I need my buttons on a Saturday, can you do that?”

Yes! We offer Saturday deliveries, however you have to place the order directly through us (by phone or email). Our website is not able to calculate out a Saturday delivery. The delivery costs for Saturday deliveries are also typically higher with shipping carriers rather than a standard delivery date.

“I need my buttons in the morning on my desired delivery date, what do I do?”

The only way we can guarantee a morning delivery is if we ship Next Day Air or 2nd Day Air AM delivery. When packages are shipped Ground, 3 Day Select, and 2nd Day Air, the delivery time is by the end of the business day, meaning 4:30PM for businesses and 8PM for residences. Next Day Air typically has a delivery time between 10:30 AM and 12PM. AM deliveries are between 8 AM and 12 PM.

If we missed any questions on this part about turnaround time, production, or shipping, you can always give us a call (623-445-9975), send us an email (sales@custombuttons.com), or on our chat on our website (custombuttons.com). We’re here to help in every step of your button order process from starting an order to shipping out your order.

The next part of our FAQ Series will discuss the ordering process, and other details pertaining to orders, so stay tuned for that next part! As always, we are in this business because Everyone Loves Buttons®!

FAQ Series – Part 1: Product Questions

product questions

When it comes to ordering custom buttons, you might have a few product questions, and we are here to help! We do have an FAQ page, but your question might not be on that page, and that’s where our blog comes in! Frequently, we get calls, emails, and chats in regards to our products. We decided to create a FAQ blog series to answer some more of our frequently asked questions!

“I’m looking for a standard button size, what do you recommend?”

We carry over 21 different shapes and sizes when it comes to buttons, and that can be a little intimidating. Have no fear! Our button experts can help you through picking out the perfect size.

Our most common sizes are the 1”, 1.25”, 2.25”, and 3” buttons.Each size has different purposes, and we want to make sure that it will fit your needs! The 1” and 1.25” buttons are perfect for handing out. To show off a little flair, smaller buttons are often pinned to jackets, hat, backpacks, lanyards, and more.

The 2.25” round buttons are about the size of the top of a soda can. They often feature short catch phrases, pictures, and great for political candidates because they are a visible sized button without being obtrusive.

The 3” round buttons are highly visible, and are about the size of a baseball. We commonly see companies using this size as their silent salesman for new products or offers happening in stores.

If you are not sure what size would work best for your custom buttons, we can definitely recommend a size based on what you want your custom buttons to be for! We will ask questions about what you are using the buttons for and what you want to put on the buttons. Your answers will help us determine the best button size for your project.

“What kind of backing options do you offer?”

We actually have a page on our website dedicated to showing the different backing types to show what they look like. Currently we offer:

Standard Pin-Back Buttons

Clothing Magnet Buttons

Fridge Magnet Buttons

Bulldog Clip Buttons

Mirror Back Buttons

Bottle Opener Buttons

Zipper Pulls ®

product questions button backings

For information on each backing type, see our blog post here.

“Do you offer free samples?”

Yes we do! However, they are not custom samples with your design, just generic samples. Typically, people who are requesting samples are testing a few different things. They are testing our quality, determining what size would work best for them, and finally what type of backing they are interested in.

We make it easy too. Just let us know your name and ship to address, and we will send out the generic samples to you. We use bubble mailers with stamps to protect the samples. This, however, can take a few days to receive, so if you’re in a rush, this may not be the best option.

“What makes you stand out from other button companies?”

We have the highest quality and standards when it comes to our button products and customer service. We will work day and night (and weekends if needed), to make sure that we get out your order on time. Our highly trained staff ensures that your buttons are made with only the best parts and graphics during production, and our customer service team ensures you have the best possible experience with us. Our 4.9 Star Rating with Trustpilot isn’t for nothing after all! We strive to be able to help every step of the way.

Did you know that we are also a Nationally Certified Woman Owned Business (WBENC & WOSB) and a Certified Made in USA company? We take pride in the fact that we are woman owned and all of our products are Made in the USA. Our button parts are manufactured in Wisconsin and our button manufacturing facility and offices are located in Phoenix, AZ where we make all of our custom promotional button products!

“How can you sell such high quality buttons at affordable pricing?”

We buy all of our inventory in bulk, and have great relationships with all of our vendors. We offer the highest quality buttons in the industry. All of our promotional products are printed on a state of the art digital press. This allows us to print in the highest quality, clarity, color, and contrast. Our labor and our parts are all 100% Made in the USA! Our buttons are manufactured by skilled employees, and in a sweatshop free environment.

We are widely considered as the largest button company in the United Sates! You will get the best pricing (we have a best price guarantee), quality and service, when you choose to buy from us.

“What’s the different between flat back fridge magnets and clothing magnets?”

This is one of our most frequently asked product questions.

We offer two different kinds of magnets, those you wear (clothing magnets) and those you display (flat back fridge magnets). Clothing magnet buttons are made with a 2-piece magnet attached to the back of the button. This allows you to attach the button to your clothing without poking holes that are caused by our pinback buttons. The clothing magnet will either be a round 2-piece magnet or a bar 2-piece magnet depending on the size of the button.

Flat back fridge magnets stick to metal surfaces and are not able to be worn. They are called flat back magnets because we use a flat back metal part and put on a flat refrigerator magnet.
