The art-electronic producer and artist is currently doing shows to promote her new music and we got involved to help her make some unique concert merch.
She designed these beautiful cards with custom 1.25" buttons for a show. We see a lot of custom orders come through our shop, but this one definitely caught our eye.
A double-sided pink card has one of two custom sparkly buttons attached and branded with all Daiza's contact information, including a QR code. We kind of love them!
Holographic Buttons with Custom Printing
The sparkly effect is from printing the artwork on Dura-Lar, a transparent film, and then placing over gold foil. You can read more about this process in this post about making holographic pinback buttons.

Custom Buttons For Community Members
We had the chance to work with the rad guys over at to make these super cool and well designed buttons. Pinback custom buttons for community members allow them share that they belong in a special community and to express the voice, message and personality of that membership. We think these buttons do exactly that.
The larger Custom 2" Round Button is a great pin size for extra visibility to showcase The Star Wars Underground logo. The smaller Custom 1-1/4" Round Button is great size for fun designs and messages that members can pin and wear all the time.
Depending on what message or design you want to express, there is a pin size and shape that will perfectly suit the needs of your special community members! We would love to talk through all of those options with you so reach out to us anytime!

Toronto artist Leanne Davies recently hit up Toronto Comicon with these rad custom 1.5” square buttons.
Leanne Davies is a visual artist who paints in acrylics and watercolour. Her work illuminates beauty in the absurd and the ironic. Influences on her work include social media and popular culture with desire and the intricacy of human relationships as two common themes in her art.
She had two of her paintings put onto buttons to sell at the pop culture convention where she was an exhibitor.
Leanne Davies’ Spock and Super Dave paintings were pressed into 1.5” square buttons.
This shape and size combination is a great choice for visual artists looking for affordable ways to sell art at shows like Toronto Comicon. This is because the button is big enough to display the detail of the artwork, but is still wearable.
There are a number of custom options for visual artists looking to sell their artwork at a pop culture convention or any other number of shows. Custom magnets, mirrors, coasters, keychains and jewelry are other unique and affordable ways to sell art. These items also provide low cost ways for people to buy art.
