New Temporary Tattoo Instruction Inserts


We’ve got some exciting new plans for our temporary tattoo line this year: More design options, more packaging options, and more customizations!

To kick off the project, I decided to revise the styling on the tattoo instructions. In case you’re new to Buttonhead: We’ve been making custom temporary tattoo party favors since 2008. Each tat is individually packaged with a set of instructions for application and removal. In 7 years, we’ve never really changed the base design of the instruction sheet. I’d say it was overdue for a facelift.

True, the change is not earth-shattering… but I do think the font is much more chic and easy-to-read. It has less of a ‘tribal’ vibe, which fits better with the types of tattoo artwork we create and produce. At the end of the day, we want the wicked tattoo art to stand out first and foremost, not the boring instruction sheet.

All orders placed from here on will include the new design. I’ll be working my way through updating the product photos, although that may take some time… because, you know, 7 years worth of photos and all.

Lower Pricing, Same High Quality!

How often do companies actually lower their prices? Leave it to Buttonhead to buck the trend! With so many new clients and increased production over the past year, we’ve been finding new ways to increase our efficiencies too. We’re proud to announce today that we’re passing the savings along to YOU.

On average, we’ve reduce our prices by 25%. I know, it sounds crazy! Trust me, there is absolutely no change in our product quality whatsoever. We’re able to offer these discounted rates by using faster equipment (which reduces the labor cost) and by purchasing supplies in bulk. Pretty cool, huh?

If you’ve been thinking of placing an order, we would love to work with you. If you’re a current customer, now is a great time to rediscover everything Buttonhead has to offer. We do hope you will join us in celebrating this new era of our business. I will be posting more updates throughout the month to share details about our snappy new equipment and other news. Yay!
