Hello my name is Stephan

I am the founder of MKE Buttons. Before I became a blooming-button-business-boss I was an under-paid graphic designer, and before that I was an awkward student at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. Buttons are a small billboard with a big expression so let’s “Make something weird”.

MKE Buttons started

with tediously hand pressing and captioning small buttons using images snipped directly from recycled books and thus creating Books To Buttons LLC.

Today

the craft has cultured into an iconic catalog of comics, pop-culture and art that are printed on both buttons and magnets in both big and small sizes. You may find these creations in local stores, upcoming events and the online shop

Thanks for stoping by!
