I’ve been challenging myself to come up with 100 new buttons for the 100 random pin mix. Right now, I have 70 cool new designs, and I think they work for a wider variety of interests. I’ve got some sporty, retro, travel-themed, motivational, and of course, just plain random, cute, and funny. When I finish the final 30, I will be sure to post lots of photos!
Fun fact: These are the metal pins that snap into the back of the 1 inch buttons. All of our custom button pins arrive assembled and finished for you. Just thought you might like to see a snapshot of the process!
Buttonhead got a new camera!
Product photography is a critical part of our business. I’ve always prided myself on having a ‘eye’ for taking pictures, so I’m incredibly excited for the opportunity to work with a better camera. We’ll also be able to record full HD video, and I do have plans to contribute more to our YouTube account. Very exciting!
Please be sure to add us to your social networks to see lots more photos and videos as they’re posted!
Have you guys seen the new button packaging for 2015? We’ve made so many changes to the business within the past 6 months, I realized the packaging needed a facelift to match!
When you place an order for any of the retail buttons or magnets in the Etsy shop, I package them inside of a resealable zip bag. Then, I staple a handmade cardstock tag to the top, which gives the whole pack a nice, finished pro-look. If you flip the package over, all of our social networking and website info is listed on the back. So, it’s kind of a packaging /slash/ business card thingy.
Feel free to let me know what you think about the new packaging. It’s always good to hear from you!
