An economical way to add snap and excitement to buttons
Sometimes you want to step it up and add a little pizzazz to your photo buttons. You’ve got your button maker, button parts and photo paper ready but what else can you do (other than adding a flashing led) to add pop and sparkle to a button?
May I bring to you, the least known button making accessory with the biggest heart. Heart??? Yes, I will explain a little later… Announcing the incredible dual-purpose-always-in-demand-razzmatazz-mylar-foil accent ring!
Brightly colored mylar foil accent rings are a cost effective way to make any lackluster photo pop! It's also an inventive way to frame a photo button with color or enhance the rim of the shell if you use a 2.25" photo punch. Made for 2.25” and larger buttons, standard package colors include red, blue, black, green & gold. Or, purchase a small variety pack that also includes additional colors like pink, orange, purple, rainbow prism and sparkling iridescent. Bonus color: the back of each accent ring is silver giving you one more color to work with. Custom mix packages are easily available by request, please contact us for details.
ABM’s accent rings are wildly popular with photographers because the result is always a clean, professional looking photo button. And photographers aren’t the only ones who love accent rings. Universities and high schools also use them to promote their sports teams. Now as I promised, let's get to the heart of the matter. If you’re in need of a sweetheart button for Valentine’s or an anniversary – use a heart shaped accent ring to make a keepsake button for that special couple. Ladies, I bet your best fella would love to have one of these with your picture. To use, place the accent ring on top of the photo, directly under the clear mylar, and press the button as you normally would. Oh, and don’t think for a minute that accent rings are limited to use with only pinback buttons. Photos with an accent ring look great as a key chain, magnet or mirror button, too.
Until next time – Happy Button Making!
