About National Pin-back Button Day:
Christen Carter, owner of Busy Beaver Button Co., started National Pin-back Button Day on July 21, 2011 as a way to celebrate the button’s contribution to graphic art and social change. Why July 21st? It’s the button’s birthday, of course! July 21, 1896 is the official patent day of the pin-back button.
