More New Improvements to the Build-a-Button Online Design Center™!

It was Ronald Reagan who said, “There are no such things as limits to growth, because there are no limits to the human capacity for intelligence, imagination, and wonder.”

School, Sports, and Fun Design CD Now Available!

Our year of new products and accessories continues this month with the launch of the School, Sports, and Fun! Graphics Design CD for Buttons. We are very excited about this disc for a number of reasons:

  • It includes a wide variety of images that work for button sizes of 1″ through 3.5″.
  • The designs work on 1″ buttons, so they are perfect for use with our interchangeable magnetic jewelry line.
  • You can personalize the buttons further by adding your own photos or text to them. (And you can do this easily here!)
  • The theme of the graphics on this CD is especially relevant with spring and summer on the immediate horizon.

And here is the best part: we are running a release special through the rest of March that allows you to get the CD for $19.95 instead of the normal price of $39.95. Just use the code “school” during checkout.
