    A friend of mine has a Japanese Bobtail. That thing is so smart, she took the wand toy in her mouth and ran around the room so the other cat could play with it.

    wow, those buttons turned out really good. I didnt put any text on mine because i have to use MS paint and in the preview on their website it looked blurry and unreadable.

    Also, my cat was raised with a dog in the house and so she thinks she is a puppy, she barks and fetches. Its hilarious.

    The trick with MS Paint is to save as PNG and not JPEG or BMP. Saving as PNG keeps it looking as crisp and
    clean as when you made it, not doing so can introduce ugly artifacts in text and detailed areas.

    I have buttons!
    [/Yahoo voice]

    I ordered 50 and I received 62 useable buttons and two bonus "differently abled" buttons. The heat shrink
    process was not 100% successful so those 2 fell apart. My design came out great though, and the other 62
    look super good.

    Hey OP, can I's be moved to the Has Buttons list nowz?

    Heh, when purebuttons was first mentioned, their turnaround time was in the 3-4 day range. Now we have them up to 11-12 days.


    Well...I mean it may or may not be our fault, but it's nice to think it is.

    We probably should've asked if we could get an even greater discount, given the volume we're pushing through them.

    We should point it out to them, and maybe we'll be able to get a discount for next year.

    Ordered buttons last night, actually. We'll see how they turn out. They're not as awesome as Moe's; I went with a simple design.

    The new buttons that just came in for you guys look great! =)

    And I was wondering how they made the buttons... so it's some kind of shrink-wrap deal? Interesting!

    Either way, I tend to follow a "pics or it didn't happen" philosophy on the net. Pics of the actual buttons puts you in the top tier.

    So, it's finally occurred to me that this sounded like an awesome fun idea several months ago when I heard about it and that I should probably design a button if I want to participate.

    Question is, should I go with one based off of my current avatar, or something else? I've been kinda thinking I should change my avatar whenever I find something else cool. Anybody got any suggestions?

    ...ice cream?

    I guess what I'm looking for is more like "should I stick with this, or is it time for a new avatar". Or should I go back to my old avatar which was the Blue Badger from Phoenix Wright wearing a mask which I will post as soon as I can find.

    Mm. Ice cream. Anywho! I dig your current avatar...and I can see Blue Badger as your avatar as well.

    gotta go with something that you feel represents you. If that is your avatar, as is the purpose of avatars (under normal conditions), then go with it.
    Also, wouldn't the rootbeer float the icecream? I mean i personally never have seen rootbeer itself float.

    Well, if you put it in a denser liquid it will... Besides, it's the ice cream that makes the root beer a float, or "floats" it.
