How to Start a Button Business
Given the current economic situation, many families are forced to cut back on their spending while they try to come up with some ways to make extra income. One easy way to supplement an income for a very small investment is for a family to start their very own button making business.
The small investment for a button making system and the necessary supplies can allow an entrepreneurially minded family to easily start their own button business making pinback buttons. Pinback buttons are extremely versatile and have an enormous popularity. From campaign buttons to concert souvenirs, pinback buttons are a popular novelty item.
With a button machine from American Button Machines, a family running their own small button business can quickly produce a large number of pinback buttons for sale in a variety of venues, from local fairs to church bazaars. A button maker from American Button Machines can make a pinback button in as little as 10 seconds. With the necessary button supplies, a family can quickly produce a large number of custom buttons in as little as an hour.
With a button machine, you are only limited by your creativity. There are a diverse range of versatile button options to choose from, allowing your button business to produce a wide variety of buttons types, from key chains, refrigerator magnets, and pocket mirrors to nametags, photo buttons, coasters and even personalized gifts such as a six inch clock !
One way to quickly sell a large number of buttons is to contact your friends who are planning a wedding. Pinback buttons make great name tags, and also serve as excellent place settings for receptions, showers, and rehearsal dinners. American Button Machines was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings magazine on how to create wedding favors for the guests. A memorable idea for personalized gifts would be to give everyone in the wedding party a custom mirror they can take home as an inexpensive and thoughtful wedding favor.
Friends, families, local fairs or church bazaars are just a few of the many possibilities for developing a customer base for a small button making operation.
With a small investment and a little creativity, a family can supplement their income during these tough times with their very own button business.
