Photo of the Button Brothers staffing a carnival booth for handmade buttons

November 20 - 22 2015?
There is a question mark there because we are still planning this! Our family might be opening their shop at the same time as the Eastside Culture Crawl, so there is a chance we will have a button-making station in our shop (also our parents' shop). We are in Chinatown, Vancouver, close to a lot of artist studios that will be open for the Crawl. Check back here for news!

Fall 2015
It's been four years since we started The Button Brothers! We still like to introduce people to the joys of button-making. It's also great to hear from our customers so if you are happy with your rental, or your party guests had a good time making their own buttons, or your fundraiser involving your buttons went well, please let us know!

Summer 2014
School's out! There is so much more time to be creative and dream up new ideas. Why not make your own original artwork and turn them into buttons? Book your button machine rental from us and you can have hours of fun.

The Button Brothers sponsors East Van Love
EastVanLove is a series of events where people meet up, hang out, and express how much they love East Vancouver! The Button Brothers and Mitmunk (dad and Joanie's company) are sponsoring EastVanLove 6.5 by donating the use of our button-making machine and supplies so that people going to the event can make their own East Van buttons. It is a free event!

Back to School: Fall 2012
Are you getting ready to go back to school, just like we are? Looking for cool buttons to pin to your backpack? You can now get buttons by the Button Brothers at Little Earth Children's Store! We also made some special Little Earth buttons with their logo on them. Find them, and other kids' clothes and accessories, at their store, 1020 Commercial Drive.

Summer 2012
Our button machines are available for you to rent. Looking to promote your business, school play, volunteer organization, or special event? Handmade buttons are a great way to get your name out, using your own unique style and branding. The Button Brothers' affordable rental prices make it easy for you to create your homemade buttons. Phone or send us an e-mail to book your button press rental!

Happy New Year!
All the best for 2012 to everyone! After the holidays, we're back in action. Contact us to rent our button machines to make custom buttons featuring your designs.
