You wouldn’t get a haircut without looking at the back, and you wouldn’t buy a car without inspecting all sides, so it’s natural to be curious about the backs of our button, magnet, bottle opener and magnet options. Here’s the scoop on our products, front AND back.
The look of the pin on the back side of Busy Beaver’s buttons varies depending on the size of the button you order. Our smallest button options– 1″ round and 1″ square– have different pins because of their very small size. 1″ round have a hand-assembled back with a copper-plated locking pin. 1″ square buttons have a diagonally oriented pin on the backside that allows the pin to be longer, and more easily pin-able, than if it were horizontally oriented.
Rectangle buttons are the only button with a different back based on the horizontal or vertical orientation of the front. (Ovals can be long or tall, but the back is the same.)
Our refrigerator magnet option comes with two types of backs– a thicker ceramic magnet disk is used on 1″, 1.25″ and 1.5″ round magnet. Larger round buttons, square and oval magnets feature a thinner disk magnet back.
Bottle openers are available at 2.25″ size and feature a steel reverse side with keyring attachment. The rectangle opening on the back is sized to fit standard bottle caps.
Our new mirror option is available in the oval and 2.25″ and 3″ size. Mirror backs have a steel collet rim that holds in the mirror piece opposite the printed front.
