Hello!

logo-full-webWelcome to Buttonhead.org! My name is Ali. I make custom pinback buttons (badges), magnets, mirrors, sticker labels, and temporary tattoos for artists, small businesses, parties, and events. On this website you will find behind-the-scenes Buttonhead secrets, news, updates, press, promotions and customer resources. I have also created a library of how-to’s for indie business owners and self-employed artists. I hope you find the information inspiring and the extras entertaining.

Please be sure to leave a comment, subscribe to the RSS updates, and feel free to add me to your favorite social networks, so we can stay in touch. I look forward to connecting with you!

April 2014 Freebie Button

414freebiebutton-text-2

 

Each month, I create a totally exclusive freebie button to include with every order.  It’s just a small way for me to say thanks for your support.  With Easter right around the corner, I wanted to create a cool rabbit button that wasn’t too girly.  Most of my clients are women, but I do work with guys too.  So, here is a rabbit that’s not quite a bunny.

PS: Once the month is over, these freebie buttons will be forever banished from the button press. So, get ‘em before they’re gone for good!

Production Update and Upgrade

HP LaserJet Pro 400 Color M451dn Printer

It has been a whirlwind month here at Buttonhead.  Orders have been flying in and out almost-faster than I can keep up with!  Over time, my current production printer had lost speed, and it was becoming more cumbersome to print than it should be.  So, I bit the bullet and invested in a brand new production printer.  It’s so fast!  And the color is beautiful.  I’m really impressed and happy with everything about it.  Hooray for productivity!

This Is Me!

Every year, I try to take a birthday self-portrait photo to keep my online
profiles fresh. I managed to sneak away from a busy production day to take a few
last week. Nothing glamorous! Most of the items I make on a daily basis involve
working with greasy machinery and sometimes dirty metal parts. So, there’s no
need to get dressed up to get grimey. But, here I am: Buttonhead! (minus the
pigtails)
