One Person can Make a Difference
By request, I'm running the Backup Project table at Boskone! But we ran out of buttons by 4pm Saturday at Arisia. So. I need more buttons. I paid out of pocket for the Arisia buttons, but that is not sustainable, as we're managing a household on one salary in an expensive city and all of that. Arisia was good for us professionally and bad for us financially.

So I am asking you for help!

All money collected through this PayPal button will be used to buy Backup Project buttons. They're $100 per 100 buttons at the official store - if you know where I can get them cheaper and in mass quantities, let me know. If by some miracle I get enough buttons to last through Boskone, I'll bring 'em to my next con, and so on. I will keep distributing buttons as long as there are buttons to distribute, and I will keep talking everyone's ear off about bystander action.

Help me do this, please!

At work, we've used these guys for trade show buttons; quality was OK, you have to buy 500, but they're like .35 cents apiece which should save you some monies:

Hey, if we get enough money...

Is Boskone a badge ribbon con? I can probably mail you 50 Backup! ribbons that I had made for ConFusion last year. Ribbons may also be a cheaper option than buttons, though they are less visually prominent.

'tis, but I want to standardize; I feel like either all ribbons or all buttons is probably the best way to go...

Hi Song.
Just Sent you something for the Backup Project in memory of Badger.

Thank you! I know Badger would've worn one of the buttons with pride.

Can you provide the artwork? I have a Badge-a-minite button squoosher...

I'd love same artwork as on the page, but with BACKUP as all one word...

How about:

Although "Back Up" as in the original improves the messages, IMO

Well, the message is more "I'm your backup" than "I want you to physically back up."

Would chanaleh be able to make them for you for less? She was a dealer at Arisia.

(Ignore this if she was the person who made your original run of buttons)

She only makes 1" buttons, which aren't visible across the room; we really need 2.25".

Glad to be able to help.
