Whoa… a button maker!



Believe it or not, a button press is far less simple and timely as one might assume. Recently acquiring access to one, I have a new found respect for all those faithful campaign workers diligently pressing buttons back in the days that trains were still a common practice for political campaign trails. I imagined the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution, when workers upon workers were placed next to each other with one job to do—one job they would do over, over, over again day in and day out. Assembly lines are a terrible fate to think about.

When I hear someone complaining at school about how “picky” people are being during a critique or scoff at how time consuming graphic design is, I honestly have not even a remote sense of compassion for them. People can either pay attention to detail finding a certain sense of self-satisfied reward… or they can work the assembly line mindlessly throughout their lives.

All thoughts aside, my button making experience was pretty cool. Thanks for stopping by and checking out the blog.

    Hey sorry for the long awaited reply, I’m not really sure I can help you out as far as the instructions go. We borrowed the button maker from our school library and our friend showed Jim how to use it. I wasn’t there so I don’t know how to use it either. Sorry I couldn’t help.
