Buttons

Most of our hundreds of buttons are in the seven catagories shown below. They mostly sell for $2.00 each. Many are in more than one catagory. The few shown on this page are just a random sampling from our hundreds of buttons in stock.

RETAIL PRICING TIPS FOR RE-SELLERS
br> On our website catalog we have a $10 minimum for all orders, so that we are not in competition with anyone selling the buttons direct at events, where they are often impulse point-of-purchase sales. The suggested retail price is $2.00 each for one. However, people often want more than one button, we've found that a retail price of three buttons for $5 works best. That still works out to $1.66 per button being paid. You could also offer a price break of eight buttons for $10, which makes each one $1.25, so you still are taking in .50ข more than they cost you, AND the buyer is getting a good deal. These two price points will effectively increase your sales. This way they are a very effective fundraising item, and the low retail cost means more people will purchase them. We do not recommend giving them away at no cost. These have a perceived value which people are willing to pay because it is still very reasonable for a durable product that will last for decades. Retail shops sell button for $2 to $3.49 each. Button collectors and traders buy and sell buttons for upwards of $10 to $15 apiece; rare ones sell for far higher. For forty years we have helped clubs, organizations and local, statewide and regional groups and movements raise millions of dollars for their work, by selling our buttons, stickers and postcards (a.k.a. "mini-posters")

All of the smallest size buttons – the 1" diameter ones – have a hand-inserted spring lock pin on the back. All pins in the back of 1" buttons made by any manufacturer are held in place by the pressure of the metal pin against the inside of the rim. This is the only style of clasp that 1" buttons have. If it is too loose, you can easily take it out, bend the curved portion wider, and re-insert it, so it fits more securely. All other size buttons have a safety pin clasp closure embedded on the back.

A NEW way to attach 1" buttons is now available. They are a tie-tack style clutch pin backing. They add 50ข per button to the price of any 1" button. They cannot be added on to other size buttons. These are sold $1 for two; or $5 for ten. Order below:

ABL.gif Button: The Airwaves Belong to the Listeners
$1.00 $0.50 On Sale!
ABL
(1.25" button) More relevant today than it was 33 years ago when we first introduced this button! In February 2011 Republicans in Congress voted to de-fund public radio (N.P.R.) and TV (P.B.S.) broadcasting This is the button that began Donnelly/Colt's buttonmaking back in 1977... we created it for the local listeners support group, the Friends of WBAI... The issue is still very relevant today as corporate America has successfully privatized the airwaves, and the Reagan administration did away with the F.C.C.'s Fairness Doctrine, opening the floodgates to one-sided rightwing media consolidation and domination beginning in the 1980's

NMTTA
(1.5" Button) The situation in Afghanistan is a nightmare. The surge has not worked. As we escalated the war, the insurgency fought harder and grew in numbers. Western troops are seen as foreign occupiers in the Afghan homeland, and now have murdered 16 civilians, including little children, in the middle of the night in Kandahar province. The surge has produced a record number of coalition and Afghan deaths, injuries and lost limbs. The surge has not stopped the momentum of the insurgency; just last year there were over 16,000 IED attacks against U.S. troops – a record number. Bring our troops home.
