Promotional buttons one of the best forms of advertising

Promotional buttons, in fact, are an excellent form of advertising. Take a trip down memory lane, and try to think of how old you were when you saw your first button. What kind of button was it? Did it make a lasting impression on you? What was so special about it?

The first button was used in the 1896 for an election campaign. Since that time, buttons have been used in virtually every campaign. Why is that?

  1. They are cheap

  2. They stand out

  3. They can effectively deliver a message

Buttons have been around for the a long time and continue to thrive today. Band buttons are extremely popular today. Fundraising buttons, promotional/advertising buttons, and still campaign buttons also thrive.

For this post we will focus on promotional buttons or advertising buttons. In marketing, the key to a successful campaign is Return On Investment (ROI). Basically, that means how much did you get for what you paid. If we look back to why buttons have been used in virtually every campaign since 1896, they are cheap. If we break down the ROI formula (how much you got-how much it cost)/(how much it cost)=(ROI), it will better explain our next point. PureButtons prices for 50 one(1) inch buttons is $10.00 or $.20/button. Basically, any sort of return, is going to be positive because they are so cheap.

Lets look at point 2, they stand out. This is one of the main reasons why political campaigns have used buttons for so long. When you see someone walking down the street, and something is attached to their shirt or hat. You pay attention to it, because it is out of the ordinary. Hypothetically, one person, who wears their button everyday, is walking down the street and runs into 3 people. One of the 3 people, sees the button and wants to buy one to wear every day. And this trend continues. In 30 days, 900 people are wearing that button. And if you selling that button for $.75, you profited $495, just in buttons. Not to mention, any other sales you made by people seeing you button.

As you can see, promotional buttons are very effective. In more posts to come, we will show you how to make better promotional buttons, and some tips on using you advertising buttons effectively.

The Fronts & Backs of our Button Packaging
Categories: Button Packaging

You probably are asking yourself, How do you keep the buttons from falling off of the button packs? The answer is simple, we print your backer cards then die cut them using a traditional die cutting method. As you can see below I’ve showcased a photo of each type of button packaging option we currently offer. You’ll be able to see below how the buttons are attached to the card just by glancing at the photos. I can assure you that your buttons will not fall off of our packs. Just take a look for yourself.

For now, what you see is what we currently offer. We can not alter the amount of buttons per card or remove the retail hang hole. All of our backer cards are printed on 12pt Gloss Card Stock. If what you see is something that interests you, please go ahead and head over to our custom button packaging page.

We plan on launching many more styles and finishing options in the future.

A closer look at our Custom Zipper Pull Buttons

Here is a closer look at our zipper pulls. As you can see these would just clip on to any zipper and then just hang down. These are definitely a great new unique product we are now offering and are only available in the 1″ button size. These come fully assembled just like you see in the photo below.
