Stay Safe This Halloween! Make Reflective Safety Buttons for Trick or Treaters October 30 2015

Safety First! Halloween Themed Reflective Buttons


Going out on Halloween night is something that kids (and adults) look forward to every year. Planning ahead means dressing up in costumes that fit and function, but are also visible! Safety may not be on the minds of little ghouls and goblins, but at People Power Press we want to help make sure everyone has a safe and spooky Halloween! So we've created Halloween-themed reflective buttons.

Staying visible is key when navigating our busy neighbourhood streets, so we are making highly reflective buttons to pin to costumes, jackets and all ghostly gear. These buttons reflect light much like bike reflectors or high visibility construction clothing. Trick-or-treaters can be seen, but the awesomeness of their Halloween costume stays just as visible. No need to hide under spools of reflector tape!

Come into our Toronto shop on Saturday, October 31st to either purchase a pre-made reflective button for your and your spooky crew or join us for an in-store event to make your own!

During the in-store button making event, you can choose what your reflective button will look like from a series of pre-made designs and we will show you how to make them into a button.

We also have non-reflective Halloween button designs ready to be coloured in along with treats to appease everyone’s sweet tooth! Hope you can make it.

Registration is not necessary for this event, but if you would like to reserve a specific time to come in, just contact us and we will save you a spot!

The Button Makers Guide. May 29 2011

My personal button making guide.  A little help for people thinking about getting a button maker or those just sniffing around wanting to know a little more.

I just finished the guide and I will clearly have to keep working on it but I hope it helps people interested in getting started.  I'm hoping questions I get on this blog will help me tailor it to the needs of those looking around.  I bought my first button maker maybe almost 10 years ago.  It's a 1" It still works and it has probably clocked up 100,000 buttons.  I now have 30 or so machines from starter kits to professional electronic button makers.  I think I really have tried them all.
