While buttons are excellent and effective marketing tools, they are also great pieces of wearable art. Right now flair buttons are having a fashion moment and what better way to join in on the fashion trend than by wearing your own art creation on your garments. Below is a collection of 10 art buttons, magnets or button mirrors featuring beautiful art work.
1. Helmet Clothing Magnet
Clothing magnets just don’t get enough appreciation. Not only are they sturdier and stronger than regular pinback buttons, but the inclusion of a magnet makes them doubly useful. Not only do they look great on garments but the magnet looks great on a fridge. Our clothing magnets are ultra-strong and durable, making them the perfect addition to your family’s fridge. This clothing magnet features a cool, futuristic helmet. It would look great on a backpack!
2. Woman’s Face Pinback Art Buttons
We love this mysterious looking pinback art buttons. Featuring a woman’s face covered with her hair, her eyes shaded. This pin is so interesting because of the cryptic way that the face is presented – this makes it a conversation starter! This art button would look great on any garment.
3. Live Noble Hamsa Pinback
This is the first of a few “Live Noble” Art Buttons we created. This button has a great cartoon, brightly colored, eye-popping look. We love the “hippie” aesthetic this button shows off. The hand is a play on the “Hamsa” symbol. The Hamsa is a symbol of the Abrahamic religions (Christianity, Judaism, Islam) it depicts the open right hand of Fatima and is largely understood to be a sign of protection. The finger position of this hand almost looks like the Star Trek “Live, Long and Prosper.”
4. Scarab Button Mirror
Button mirrors are so cool, but not many people know about or use them. They are an excellent and useful tool. These 3” art buttons are large enough that they are easily handheld. The surface area gives a clear view of any reflection, making them ideal for makeup application. Since the button is so big, the colorful scarab is easily showed off.
5. Live Noble Face Pinback
This is another button from the “Live Noble” collection. We love the bold style of this artist. Bright yellows contrast heavily with bright purples. This little pin makes a huge statement and would look amazing on any garment.
6. Satanic Porky Pig Pinback
This is one badass pin! It is a subversion of Porky Pig, the Looney Tunes cartoon character. The bright reds highlight the inverted cross on the pig’s forehead. We can see a punk wearing this on his vest or jacket, or as a cheeky hot sauce logo.
7. Psychedelic Lion Face Button Mirror
Another beautiful button mirror! The intricate design is absolutely mind-boggling. Again, this is a 3” button, giving you lots of canvas space for your logo or art piece. The mirror makes this a functional art piece. Nothing is better than functionality combined with style.
8. Fight Chix Magnet
Now, we have a straight up magnet! We love this tough-as-nails design. Simple and bold, the logo is easy to understand and this magnet would look amazing on any fridge or another magnetic surface. Not only are our clothing magnets super strong and long-lasting, but our fridge magnets are even stronger.
9. “The Womb” Magnet
This is a very neat, abstract logo design. This piece is called “The Womb.” We can see birds escaping from the red circle, like babies being born from a womb, or hatching from their eggs- clever! This is a 3” magnet, making it large enough to be easily eye-catching from any distance.
10. Lion King Button Magnet
This button magnet is absolutely gorgeous. We love the focus on the intricate design of the lion, and the perfect contrast of the colors. These magnets are extra strong and would look amazing on any fridge, dry erase board or another magnetic surface.
