ABM Year In ReviewAs 2014 comes to a close we'd like to leave you with the ABM Year in Review. In January our new website launched. Exciting as it was, come February, we did not rest. Check out all the cool stuff we did this year: February saw the start of our Customer Rewards program. What a huge success it has been. To date, your fellow buttoneers have redeemed thousands of dollars in discounts. Several new products were added throughout the year. 1” French wire earrings, 1.75” Keychains, purse jewelry, 1.75” necklace sets and upgraded flashing LEDs have all been given a warm welcome. In April we gave away a FREE button maker (congratulations Bill Manning) and garnered 1,000+ new fans on our FaceBook page. In July we migrated Build-a-Button to our main website. Best sellers this year were Flashing button sets, metal craft punches and the new french wire earring sets. Thank you to our Twitter, Pinterest, FaceBook and Google+ followers. We love engaging with you.
Brighid, Director of all Things Cool at ABM (yours truly) volunteered at Ecofest this Summer. Who was at the booth directly across? A youth group selling buttons made on site with an ABM button maker!

These were produced by Keith, your Button Making Support Guru & Stephanie, your Button Authority. In September the Button Discussion Forum was updated. You'll find a more user-friendly format with the enhanced layout. ABM sponsored a booth at the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center in October.

You still have time to enter. Just submit a verified review by 12/31/14 to be entered. Raul - your Shipping Manager Extraordinaire, and his team shipped tons upon tons of orders this year. That's a lot of button parts! Just last week Seth J. posted a how-to video on Google+ featuring an ABM button maker and supplies. Thank you Seth! All in all it was a busy year at ABM. We look forward to all the exciting things to come in 2015. Many thanks to all of you – we couldn’t do it without YOU – the BEST CUSTOMERS EVER! Until next year - Happy Button Making!
