Is your button production looking a little different these days? With Covid-19 has come the cancellation of many events, school sports put on hold, parties held on zoom, restaurants closing. Has this halted your button making operations?
While the demand for buttons in some particular industries may be paused, the premise of buttons has not been. With either words, pictures, or colors, buttons spread information. And if there is one thing 2020 has not been short on, it’s a message to be spread!
Consider the following buttons and their place in a Covid-19 world.
If you are in the U.S.A. you can’t escape hearing about the upcoming elections in November. While many rallies have been canceled, sharing your favorite candidate certainly has not been! Whether it is a presidential or local election, campaign buttons were essential in a pre-Covid-19 world, and are making their importance known during this time as well!
Do you refrain from affiliating your business with any political candidate or group? You can’t go wrong with a “Please vote!” button!
2020 will be a year of change as each day it seems brings more social justice and human rights movements than ever before. Whether a pro-this or anti-that message, buttons have been and will continue to be a way advocate for change in our world.
(If you need a reminder of the button’s stamp on history, visit the Busy Beaver Button Museum here).
Earlier this year, Americans along with most of the world initiated a lockdown to help slow the spread of Covid-19. While many of us hunkered down, there was many who did not. They risked and continue to risk their own exposure in order to deliver goods, services, and love to others. We learned during this pandemic the essentiality of our teachers, farmers, police officers, retail workers, postal and delivery service workers, first responders, nurses and doctors and many, many more.
These people have earned our praise! Honor them with a button and thank an essential worker today!
Covid-19 Specific Buttons
Please wear a mask. Please social distance. Please no hugs. Please knock. Curbside Pickup Available. Whether it is a message for customers as stores communicate their policies or it is simply something that someone feels passionate about, the button has been conveying the idea.

Creative ideas have been one of the most delightful results to come from quarantine.

Covid-19 may continue to stall the events of our world, but the need to communicate a message will remain. Buttons have and will continue to be an integral way to share thoughts, feelings, to promote, to advertise, and to advocate. There is much to say in a Covid-19 world, buttons will be there to help you say it!

I LIKE THE SMILE BUTTON. I WNT TO MAKE A SMILE, BUT THE MASK HIDES IT.
Me too, Clay!
I TOOK THE SMILE BUTTON FURTHER “SMILE BEHIND THE MASK”
I PUT THE “SMILE” AS A BIG RED
“BEHIND THE MASK” IS BLUE
TO TOP IT OFF AT THE BOTTOM I HAVE
“DISTRIBUTED BY CLAY AND PHONE NUMBER”
I GIVE THEM AWAY FREE. THEY ARE VERY POPULAR. I USE THE PHONE NUMBER TO GET BUSINESS.
I thank the woman at your company who sent me all the samples.
I took earring cards and punched some holes that turned PIN BACK BUTTONS INTO CARDS
NOW I CAN MAKE CARDS AND PUT THE BUTTONS ON THE CARDS.
I CAN MADE THAT WILL FIT TO A CARD TO 1.5″, 1.75′, 2″, 2.25″,3″ and 3.5″ buttons.
I had to buy a machine that will punch holes and it is expensive.
Great idea! We would love to see them!
