Hello there! Welcome to Buttonhead. We’re glad you stopped by. Since 2007, we’ve been creating personalized keepsakes for your parties, events, and promotions. It’s been an incredible experience working with you and building our business at the same time. We’ve gone from a one bedroom, one button machine operation to a larger studio space with tons of equipment. It’s truly an ‘American dream’ story. If you’re interested to know a little bit more, here’s how we got here:
My name is Ali, and I’m the owner. Back in 2007, I was looking for an opportunity to start a business venture. So, I purchased a one-inch button machine for $300 and started making pins just for friends at first. My creativity started to rise at just around the same time as a collective indie shopping website known as Etsy.com. I opened up a shop, sold my weird little buttons, started gaining a client base, and developed a larger business strategy. Within only a few short months, I was operating Buttonhead full-time. Over the next few years, I expanded the business to offer several button products, as well as label and tattoo production. In 2014, Joel (my husband) took over the primary production aspect of the business, and I focus on executive, office, and creative duties. It’s amazing to think about how far we’ve come!
As we grow into the future, we look forward to expanding our team, meeting new clients, and continuing to provide awesome products and service. What sets us apart from competitors is our personal touch. We’re not just a faceless internet business. We’re honest, hard-working people who genuinely love what we do – and we’re looking forward to working with YOU!
