With less than 3 months to go people are starting to plan their trips to Celebration VII in Anaheim! (I haven't even started booking flights yet!!) And with that thought in mind I've noticed people are starting to post ideas for buttons, patches and other swag to hand out. To me this is the greatest part of Celebration! It is an awesome icebreaker allowing an opportunity for fans to introduce themselves and meet other fans. They're a neat collectible unto themselves! They are an great way to express yourself or your collection. They are just fun!! I am planning my pin now and it will be the second in the series that I started at the last Celebration. I'll post pics once the design is finalized. So post some pics of what you are planning on bringing! I'm looking forward to beating last Celebration's record! 96 pieces on 3 lanyards weighing in at just under a pound!!
Have fun with the design! Let it speak for you!
Buttons are cheapest way to go.
Common size is 1" round though other sizes and shapes are more than welcome!
100-150 are a good number for a con the size of Celebration, and a good number of friends!
I've used Custom Buttons, Magnets, Zipper Pulls - Pure Buttons in the past and I've been pleased with their quality and service but I know there are companies out there. Just google custom buttons or pins and you'll find a bunch.
I'm looking forward to what everybody comes up with and more importantly looking forward to adding them to my lanyards this year!!
