In our last blog post, we teased you about our brightest new button making product that would be here in a flash and that we would enlighten you about soon.
Well soon is now here…and you’ve surely already surmised what this new product is that’s about to light up your button making lives!
Flashing LED Buttons are perfect not just for the holiday season – I mean, what better accoutrement for an ugly Christmas sweater than a button with Rudolph’s nose flashing? – but for any season.
Why? Because a red flashing LED light makes the message of any button pop. It draws the eye, catches attention, and compels ingestion of the words and ideas of the button. And isn’t that the ultimate goal?
And you won’t be surprised to learn that flashing LED buttons are quite easy to create.
Here are the easy steps:
- Make a button as you would normally and then use our Metal Craft Punch to punch a 1/8” hole through the button.
- Take the flashing LED assembly and remove the tear away paper from the back and simply insert the LED through the hole you made in the button. (The flashing LED assembly includes a safety pin making it very easy to attach to clothing.)
- Then, remove the clear safety tab from under the on/off button and you are done!
Also, you have multiple display options based on the size of the button you use. To learn more, click here.
We can’t wait to see all the awesome flashing buttons you all come up with! Make sure you submit them to be considered for our Customer Spotlight!
