[caption id="attachment_331328" align="alignleft" width="300"]airplane quote Movie quote button from[/caption] Quote buttons are all the rage. These can vary from inspirational to sarcastic; kid friendly to PG-13; puns to movie quotes. The wonderful World Wide Web is a source of never ending ideas for your quotes. Or, to paraphrase Art Linkletter, inspiration often comes from kids who say the darndest things. [caption id="attachment_331340" align="alignright" width="300"]ET button E.T. button from[/caption]     Pop culture buttons are terrific sellers. Lots of people collect memorabilia of their favorite actors, singers, TV personalities or animated characters. Just be careful not to infringe on any material copyrights. I recommend checking with an attorney if you’re not sure.     High schools across America participate in all kinds of sports. Find cross town rivals and play both sides by making buttons for each team. Which sports are popular in your area? Football, basketball, soccer? How about swimming, lacrosse or golf? Baseball and gymnastics teams are also commonly found in American high schools. Gymnasts and cheerleaders love, love, love hairbows.

Contact some of the small business owners in your area and offer to make their buttons. Have one or two personalized samples made up to leave with the manager. Are there consignment stores in your town? One of our customers recently mentioned that while visiting a local consignment store she offhandedly asked if they would feature her mirror buttons. To her delight the answer was YES! There are lots of ways to maximize button sales and these are just a few. We’d love to hear your personal success stories so please feel free to share. The ABM Discussion Forum is the perfect venue to do just that.               Until next time – Happy Button Making! By Brighid Brown, Director of Blogging and All Things Cool at ABM
