Pinback Buttons Make Great Promotional Tools

Pinback buttons were one of the earliest forms of promotional material. In 1978 Gorge Washington supporters wore metal buttons that stated: Long live the president. The first pins that included pictures started in 1861 when Abe Lincoln was running for president.

On the front of the button was a ferrotype of Lincoln. The first massed produced campaign buttons happened in 1896. The materials needed to make a button were inexpensive. The production of buttons was easier and faster than before. Many people remember campaign buttons because of their catchy slogans. A good example of this is the ” I Like Ike” button for the Dwight Eisenhower campaign.

In 1898 famous children’s characters appeared on buttons. These button prizes helped increase the sale of bubblegum and tobacco. In 1945 Kellogg’s put buttons as prizes in boxes of Pep cereal. The pins featured newspaper comic characters and U.S army squadrons. There were 90 in all that people could collect. Pep cereal is one example of marketing buttons as collectibles.
