Either way, the finished buttons are professional, impressive and durable for decades. Over the past 49 years we've built a reputation for the highest quality, reliable service, dependable production, meeting your deadline challenges and surpassing your expectations. We have NO Set-Up Charges (others charge from $30 to $60 in set-up costs).

IF you find a better price elsewhere for U.S. union-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 number of buttons we can print on a 1-Day Rush is 1,000 per day.

DELIVERY CHARGES: Next Day, 2-day, 3-day and Ground UPS delivery are options. We ordinarily ship using the most economical choice: UPS Ground or Priority Mail Flat Rate. Shipping can become prohibitively costly so please plan ahead to avoid having to do Rush production and overnight shipping. Overnight shipping can cost 2 to 3 times more than the cost of printing buttons! Please don't put off ordering until the last minute! Realistically, if you can allow 9-12 days (including 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 your buttons (not visible on the front) at NO extra cost. Keep it as short as possible, like an organization name, year or a "Paid for by..." disclaimer.

ADD U.P.S. GROUND SHIPPING. We use United Parcel Service or the U.S. Postal Service's Flat Rate Priority Mail service for safe, reliable delivery of all orders. Shipping cost is determined by the weight of the package and the distance it has to go.

ALL BUTTONS CAN BE MADE WITH A MAGNET ON BACK instead of a pin for .40 extra per button in the 2.25", 2.5", 3", 2" square and 2" x 3" rectangular and oval shapes. 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. Hand inserting of th pins 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.
