Quick and Easy Button Design

button - prospecting in Sandy UT

For about the last six years I have been known in Sandy UT as the Badge and Button Man, my initial self employment when I arrived in the USA for my last great adventure.

In that time I have experimented with various programs for designing buttons ~ some intuitive, some downright cumbersome.

Recently I trialed Build A Button from American Button Machines and have since become a subscriber to their on-line design center.

Backgrounds, Text, Photos and Shapes are all available to me, with lots of control in each. Easy to use, allowing lots of creativity.

Since I produce buttons in three sizes, usually in small quantities, often for myself, even changing on a whim, the quick design capability of Build A Button is ideal for me. The output/storage as either JPEG or pdf is definitely the bee's knees.

Watch for a plethora of political buttons - they are effective advertising.

Buttons seem to be a hit, but I haven't worn one in a long time. I have seen them to be collectible though.

Jeffrey - I use buttons as ice-breakers and ID, among many othe things (eg jam jar lids for gifts, bling for youngsters). I am sure you could think up other uses as well in getting the word out.

Sheila - good to see you are a "button person" too. Being a foreigner I collect from both ends of the historic political spectrum, even noting black humor that appears. button with black humor

Larry - I am also a button person and have some great collectibles.  I used to order buttons but always had to have them custom made.  I have not ordered any in several years but I did find a bag of some I used years ago and plan on using them again in the near future as they were sort of timeless.

I have bookmarked this to come back to later.  Have a great day!

Barbara - I appreciate your response. Surprised to hear about your button interest and your collection. I use buttons for low cost advertising. I let them do the talking as ice-breakers. I have even offered them as advertising for upcoming open houses (with appropriate photos). I refer to them as my "short, sharp promotions". You might even wear your luxury homes as 3" advertising.Texas for Bush button
