Updated Price Chart for Small Orders

2017custom

Pricing for small orders of custom buttons was adjusted today to sync prices across online selling venues with the added perk of Free Shipping to USA addresses. This raised the price of buying just one by 50 cents, which actually lowered the total price by eliminating the shipping fee.

Discount pricing for quantity purchases remain unchanged.

The chart only goes to 49 because the last price change was to offer 2.25″ buttons with special backs at no additional charge when purchased in small quantities.

Deeper discounts are available for orders of 50 or more buttons and vary per back option.  Email for a quote.

As always, design assistance for custom buttons is free and there are NO hidden fees… no set up fees, no small order surcharges, no proof fees, etc.  And, if you happen to live in Ohio, sales tax is included and will be paid to the state at the rate for your location.

If you have any questions, please ask.

Thank You!

Free Buttons Today



I will be downtown giving away free buttons to “snowflakes” before the GOP candidate for the 2020 Presidential Election arrives here in Youngstown for a political rally today. Yes, he is campaigning already… the man is still stuck in campaign mode, doesn’t know how to BE presidential, or maybe he just needs his ego stroked by 20,000 adoring fans cheering him on as he spews more lies.

Sorry, Trump supporters… everyone is entitled to their own opinion and this is mine.

That’s what makes this country great. We are ALLOWED to HAVE an opinion and our right to voice those opinions is protected by our constitution’s Bill of Rights, which I feel is threatened by a president who demands loyalty to him, the person, instead of loyalty to the constitution.

Quantities of free buttons are limited as I can only afford to give away so many…  if you would like to purchase a set of these buttons, check out the Youngstown Special in my online store. They are also available individually in two sizes, with your choice of back, in a separate listing.

Thanks for reading!

 

New Zipper Pulls

Supplies have arrived, so I’ve updated the back options in my store to include zipper pulls for 1.25″ buttons. Now I’m working on illusion photos so you can see what the designs will look like on zipper pulls.

Illusion photos are not actual photographs… the image is created by dropping the button design behind a “digital photo template” on the computer, then exporting the image as a png or jpg photo file. It is a great way to see what a button will look like without wasting supplies and it also eliminates light issues that I have while trying to snap clear photos of small objects with shiny surfaces.

I don’t have a display template for zipper pulls… a quick search on Etsy found one for 1″ zipper pulls (link here) but, not in 1.25″ so I made my own clip art by snapping a real photo and removing the background, &c. It’s not the best… but it does give folks an idea of what the button will look like as a zipper pull.

Here’s what it looks with some of my designs:

I added the URL note because I’m thinking about using that photo to promote my business.

BTW, notice how the blue “Christian” and “#resist” printed darker than my original design? (If you want to compare, I posted an illusion photo in my Breaking Silence post.) Yeah, that’s one of those surprise color shifts that can happen when you design in GIMP, which uses an RGB color system, and print on high end machines that use CYMK color technology. Some surprises are cool as can be… like when a gold color displays yellowish on the computer and prints shiny gold… but some send me back to the drawing board. I should pick a different blue, but leaving it dark gives a dual meaning since there are people so brainwashed by the Religious Right that they cannot see or believe Christians can be liberals or Democrats.

Well, I best end this before I go rambling off on another soap box… thanks for reading!
