Choose a Pattern to Use for your Wedding Buttons 1. Choose Your Artwork: Find a background and save it to your computer. I chose this one because it has a nice framing element that will showcase the name. A great place for free pattern and backgrounds is Public Domain Pictures

(Tip: Change the background colour from the default Yellow to a colour that matches your uploaded artwork)

4. Save Your Designs: Once you have finished adding a name click the [Save Button] Button, your design is now saved and you can change the text without uploading the background again.

Repeat these steps until you have all your buttons - you can see them all in "Buttons Overview".

Great Ideas: Displays for your Button Business September 19 2016

We get a lot of question from our busy button makers about running your own button business and one of them is about displaying buttons for sale. We have some bright ideas no matter what size, style and type of product you're making!

Boards:

Button Display Board Ideas on the People Power Press Blog

Buttons:

Bulletin boards are a great way to display buttons because you can stick the pins right in! You can also DIY a bulletin board by covering foam board with fabric or paper, you could even add a fancy frame!

This kind of display works well if you have lots of different designs to choose from!

Magnets:

We found that the best way to display magnets is by having them do what they do best - STICK! Buttons look great displayed on a board - you can even make your own out of a cookie sheet. Since magnets stick to almost anything metal you can get creative - why not display them on a locker door or even a paint can?

Binders:

Button Display Binder Ideas on the People Power Press Blog

Most Everything:

If you have lots of different designs that you want to categorize, or lots of different types of products that won't all fit on a board - why not display your buttons in a button binder! We've made this one from page protectors designed for business cards which will fit anything up to a 2.5" button. The pockets will fit things that are harder to stick onto a board, like pocket mirrors, keychains, and bottle openers. If you choose a clear type, you'll be able to see easily what the back of each item is like!

This kind of display would be great for conventions too! You can use dividers to section your binder by theme and customers can browse it like a catalogue.

Bowls, Baskets and Bins:

Button Display Ideas on the People Power Press Blog

If you have lots of different designs or items that you want to mix together, don't forget the tried and true basket-o-buttons! Lots of folks like to rummage through a little bowl to pick a favorite design (or two, or three!). Displaying your buttons in a cute container is a perfect solution if you're not very crafty, or ran out of time to come up with a different brilliant idea! Just make sure the pins on your buttons are closed - ouch!

People Power Award Nominee: Stephen's Backpacks Society September 16 2016

Stephen's Backpacks Society was formed in 2006 in order to answer the vision of six year old Stephen who became aware that there were children living on the street or in shelters. 

With the help of his parents, James McPhee (society president) and Nancy McPhee (director of marketing), Stephen became a voice for children without a home.

Their mission is to rally communities and the children within them to help children in need.

How Does Stephen's Backpacks Society Help with Youth Homelessness?

Stephen's Backpacks society began with one project: filling up backpacks with new clothing, school supplies, and toys around the holiday season to give to children in need. Now, Stephen's Backpacks has many ongoing projects including Footprints, Project Hope, and Educate.

Stephen's Backpacks Society Uses Button for a Great Cause

Through Stephen’s humility, faith, and passion he has inspired thousands of children to Dream Outloud.

The Dream Button was designed to encourage children not only to write down their dreams, but also to proudly share them with others.

What an awesome way to use buttons!

Shipping Update: Our 1-1/4" Ceramic Magnets are in one of those containers. September 14 2016

Shipping Containers

As button makers we may not have heard of Hanjin. Hanjin is one of the worlds largest container shipping lines. Hanjin has recently declared bankruptcy and its container ships are stuck in ports around the world.

So what has this got to do with me?  Well unfortunately our skids of ceramic magnets are stuck on the ship in Port Rupert!  They will not be unloaded because the shipping company owes the Port money for docking fees.

Articles yesterday in the media say new money for Hanjin has been made available so cargo will be moving again soon. But they cannot say when and nor can we.

This is a good example of how everything is interconnected in our world today.  A Bankruptcy in Korea means the event in Jasper does not have magnets. For our customers please contact us directly and we can find a substitution or a solution. Hopefully the cargo may be flowing in a couple of weeks but it may take longer.

    Shoelace Buttons: Do-It-Yourself or Custom Made Just for You! August 02 2016

    What's your favorite pair of shoes?

    Whether it's a crisp new pair of summer sneakers, or that trusty pair that have been through thick and thin (and a puddle or two...), it's nice to show your shoes that they're appreciated.

    The best way to say "thanks shoes," is to make them a button of their very own!

    Shoe Lace Buttons, Standard Button Making Parts and Supplies,

    DO-IT-YOURSELF SHOELACE BUTTONS

    These snazzy DIY Shoelace Buttons are sure to put a spring in your step :)

    If you want to try your hand at this great DIY project, take a peek at the How-To Video below courtesy of The Button Guy!

     

     

    The Shoelace Buttons come in a ton of different sizes and all of the parts you need to make your own can be found on our website!

      WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN "FLAT" & "INDENTED" SHOE LACE BUTTONS?

      "Flat" Sneaker Buttons have a smooth, flat back from which the "shoelace clip" protrudes. These are great if you and your buttons like to let loose and dangle and jangle about.

      "Indented" Sneaker Buttons have a recessed back, so the clip sits deep into the button. This, in turn, pulls your shoelace tighter and keeps the button nice and snug. These are great if you and your buttons like a nice, orderly, approach to self expression.

      CUSTOM MADE SHOELACE BUTTONS

      If you like these Shoelace Buttons but DIY isn't really your thing, Custom Shoe Lace Buttons are available too! Just send us an image, or have our design team create something awesome just for you!
