What Is A Pin-back Button Badge?

Button badges are a highly collectible round badge with a plastic coating (Mylar) over a design or image (Political Pin-Backs - collectors items). They often have a metal pin back or a safety pin style back fastener. The most popular size is 25mm (The classic 1 inch button) but the badges can range anywhere from this size right up to 150mm (6 inch) badges, depending on the machine used to make it.

The Button Also Known As The Campaign Badge or Politician Pin-Back

This style of badge has been used in political campaigning since the late 18th century [1]. William McKinley was the first to take advantage of mass production metal buttons in his presidential campaign of 1894. He took office in 97 and was assasinated four years later [2]. But the button badge lives on. [Wikipedia - 1, 2]

Button badges are great for..

Band Promotion - Band Merchandise
Badges for bands are undoubtedly the biggest market for button badge printing.  At the end of a gig, why not throw some out into the crowd.

Business Promotions
As a call to action tool, buttons have become incredibly popular. We've all seen the 'Ask Me About..." badges on a member of shop staff, at Tesco. There's a reason for that. It works!

Charity Events
An extremely cost effective way to promote a good cause. Once removed from clothing and tossed into a draw, your badge will remain a constant reminder when re found, time and time again.

Exhibition Give-aways
Hand them out at events or when you post  brochures or goods to your customers. Also great to have around the office as a give away. Kelloggs started giving away badges back in 1945, in their cereal boxes.

Parties and Fun Events
Kids love badges. Great for children's parties and fun events. The perfect party bag filler.

Schools and Nursuries
Use them for awards of recognition, or simply showing off your house colour.

Stag and Hen Parties
How about a personalised badge for each member of the party with their nickname on!
