Creating Custom Buttons and Make Money from Them

Have you thought about having a small home based business? There are so many individuals who are very much interested when it comes to making their own business. There are a lot of options that you can find and a small choice could be to craft custom buttons for friends, family or nearby businesses.

It is really easy to make custom buttons. Perhaps, you have seen those small pinback buttons that you are able to find in the local toy shop or the gum-ball machine. When you have seen how easy it is to create the buttons for yourself, then you will be amazed at the many varieties of colorful buttons that you can make.

When making custom buttons, you must have button making machine, button blanks and the good paper stock for the buttons. You need some things to begin with. The first things that you should have are the blanks. The button blanks are those small metallic forms that may or may not have such pin backing. Know that there those buttons with no pin. This is done so that they can be attached to the clothing with the use of a magnet to prevent to poke a hole through garments. Know that the button blanks are used to hold the image that is fixed through using the button making machine.

Also, you must have the button making machine. There are so many options which you could choose such as automatic and manual. For example, the simple hand-operated button machine can help a user make a button in just two minutes and such would include the time in cutting the image template and the semi-automated machines can greatly speed up the process and also help the user to make 200 to 300 buttons each hour.

Finally, you should have the right paper for the buttons. The commonly accepted ones are 24lb in weight. Apart from being really expensive, the heavier weight paper is actually prone to jamming in the smaller button machines. Actually, there is no benefit to such thicker paper when making a button. The lighter weight paper could become translucent and you might have some of the metallic backing becoming nearly visible through paper. This is surely not the result that you desire to have. You must read the instructions carefully on the button machine because the choice of paper would rely on its recommendation. If you like to have such simple hobby, then you have to purchase a less expensive equipment first and enjoy making buttons for your friends.


VIP Pedicab To Provide Pedicab Advertising At AAOS Conference


(San Diego, CA)–VIP Pedicab has announced plans to provide mobile advertising for Stryker, a leading medical technology company, at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Conference in San Diego, March 14-18. The pedicab advertising company will be helping Stryker to stand out from the crowd and get more traffic to their booth, reports

Said VIP Pedicab spokesperson Ali Horuz, “We’re very excited about this unique sponsorship opportunity. Stryker is already a leader in their field; we’ll make sure they will be seen as the industry leader at the AAOS conference as well. By circulating through the areas where conference attendees are likely to be spending time, we’ll be in the perfect position to spread the word and attract the right traffic to Stryker’s booth.”

According to Horuz, pedicab advertising has the advantage of increasing the exposure of a brand or advertising message for a relatively low cost. Potential customers will see the advertising message on the side of the cab, Horuz explained, and riders will get even more exposure from branded clothing the driver wears along with brochures or other information available inside the cab. Frequently, clients hire pedicab mobile advertising companies like VIP Pedicab to transport conference attendees for free from the hotel to the conference location or to the town center for meals.

“We keep our cabs on the road for at least 10 hours per day,” said Horuz, “so we make sure that our clients’ message is out there circulating. We have 250 cabs at our disposal through partnerships with other local pedicab companies, so we can offer as large a fleet as our clients need. We can also help them design an ad campaign with outstanding, eye-catching artwork. For the past 13 years, we have worked closely with the SD Convention Center and its exhibitors. We offer both advertising and experiential marketing opportunities, allowing for exhibitors to expand their impact far beyond the convention center walls. “

Horuz sees the upcoming AAOS conference as a great opportunity to demonstrate the value of pedicab advertising to the medical community. “We look forward to bringing Stryker the successful turn-out they deserve,” he concluded. Companies who are planning to attend a conference in the San Diego area can learn more about the benefits of pedicab advertising for their booth at

With over 15 years of experience, the new book’s author has worked with hundreds of companies in a wide range of industries to turn their websites into more productive, effective assets.
