Custom Buttons Union-Made

Minimum quantity: 100.

For button quantities of 10,000; 25,000; 50,000; 100,000 or more use Metal Lithographed prices.

Production Time: 5 to 7 working days. Allow additional time for the higher quantity production (25,000 or more)

We print seventeen sizes and shapes of buttons from one color to full color for the same price, using the highest resolution digital printing. The high gloss finish is either heat-laminated or covered with a clear mylar overlay. Either way, the finished buttons are professional, impressive and durable for decades. Over the past 40 years we've built a reputation for the highest quality, reliable service, dependable production, meeting deadline challenges and surpassing your expectations. NO Set-Up Charges (others charge from $30 to $60 in set-up costs).

• IF you find a better price elsewhere for U.S.-made buttons, tell us. If we can match or better that price - we will. Please provide the website of the button printer

2-DAY RUSH PRODUCTION is available for a $39 Rush charge. (2 work days, excluding holidays, weekends and the day the order is placed – so figure 3 days in production plus shipping time.
1-DAY RUSH PRODUCTION is also available for $50 Rush charge. (1 work day, excluding holidays, weekends and the day the order is placed – so figure 2 days in production plus shipping time. The maximum numb er of buttons we can print on a 1-Day Rush is 1,000 per day.

Next Day, 2-Day, 3-Day and Ground UPS delivery are options. The shipping costs can become prohibitively costly – so please plan ahead to avoid having to do Rush production and overnight shipping. Realistically, if you can allow 10-14 days (includes shipping transit time within the U.S.) you will avoid a rush charge and expedited shipping charge.

We can typeset and print a short tagline on the rim of the buttons (not visible on the front) at NO extra cost. Keep it as short as possible, like an organization name, ฉ year or a "Paid for by..." disclaimer.

CUSTOM PRICES INCLUDE U.P.S. GROUND SHIPPING. We use United Parcel Service for safe, reliable and on-time delivery of all custom print orders. Shipping cost is determined by the weight of the package, the distance it must go and the speed of service you want to pay for.
U.P.S. offers four basic levels of delivery speed:
Ground delivery; Three-Day Air; 2-Day Air; and Next Day. The date you need to receive your order will determine what level of delivery service we will have to use.

ALL BUTTONS CAN BE MADE WITH A MAGNET ON BACK instead of a pin for .20ข extra per button (all sizes). You can order some as buttons and some with magnet backings.

Note: 1" Size available only with Lock Pin. The lock pin can be seen in the illustration of a button on this page, showing position of rim edge and back.
Note: RUSH ORDERS for 1" can be printed and assembled on a rush, but the lock pins cannot be inserted in the 1 or 2 day rush time. For Rush Orders the lock pins will be packed in the box separately for you to insert into the backs. For all NON-rush orders, we will insert the lock pins into the backs of the 1" buttons. No machine exists to do this step in the assembly: all 1" lock pins are always hand-inserted, either at the factory or by the customer. You can deduct $5 per 1,000 buttons when you order the 1" buttons without the lock pins inserted in the back. Instead, the lock pins will be packed separately in a bag and you would have to insert them into the back of each 1" button. It is easy but tedious, and you will do about 20-25 per minute. The safety pin style is not available for the 1" size button, but it is standard on every other size. (1" is too small for it). All other sizes and shapes have safety pins already on the back.

We will set your custom text on the rim edge of any size or shape button at no extra cost. Please keep it as brief as possible. A copyright year & name, a website and phone number is usually best.
