    Pure Buttons - Awesome site for artists to make their own buttons!

    Normally I am not the shill type, but I haven't ever heard anyone talk about Pure Buttons before on here and I wanted to give them a shout out. I am posting this because so many of my artist friends have seen these and said "DUUUUUDE! Where did you get these!?", so I figure some of you folks that are the entrepreneurial type (or even just want some cool buttons) will want to get in on this.

    Here is what I recently got done for them:
    Pure Buttons - Awesome site for artists to make their own buttons!

    The card backer was customed designed by me. All I had to do was give them an illustrator file with the path to show where they are to cut. And the placement and size of the buttons themselves were also designed by me. FULLY customizable, the only limit is your artistic imagination, but they also have templates if you want to use one of their standard cards too.

    Here is a thread on another forum that showcases what some people other than me have done with this service (note: the offer that is in the linked thread is no longer going on, you'll have to pay for these like any other business).

    As you can see, it's a pretty neat service. For myself, I am treating them sort of like trading cards. But some people make it into a business card of sorts...or a promotional tool. Some treat it like a piece of art on it's own. Oh yeah, and the prices are awesome. For the custom card-backed button sets (maximum 4 buttons), it's like 2.50 for the set. I bought 25 and it was like 60 bucks or so.

    Here's their site!

    This is a great idea, I like what you've done with yours and there's some great examples on their site. Would make an unusual and memorable business card, if a little pricey

    This is a really cool idea. I can see myself using it for quite a few reasons. They seem like they would make great birthday presents, too. Thanks for posting this, I'd never heard of it before.
    So, it has come to this.
