Me and my friend have been looking into buying a previously established button making business we then realized it was more practical to start are own due to various reason such as shipping etc. We are first year University students........ November 29 2012

Hi Liam

I would say there is no doubt that you can make money with a custom button business.

  • You have the artwork skills, that is key.
  • Do you have marketing skills?
  • Do you have general common sense?

If you answered yes to the above 3 then you are well on the way to success.

Buying the button business is another discussion, it would depend on equipment and if you are still considering this you could call to get advice on the value of that equipment and the value of the business. A key here is to buy good and not obsolete button making equipment.

Also you mention you are on campus. University is a great place for selling buttons!!

Let me know if you want to discuss further.
