    I think Waffle would very much enjoy meeting other amphibians. It should probably be noted, he's got his own Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/wafflethefrog

    (Waffle belongs to a dear friend of ours, and he travels quite a bit. There are more than a few good photos of him there, including at last year's Prime.)

    I've still got most of my buttons from 09. I never did get to give them out that year. :(

    I'm all over the buttons :-D I'll have to think long and hard over a good design! I had the CRAZY idea of making a LED one, but that'd be a bit costly. Maybe some for special events...For other button-traders who match my outfits (Steampunk one day, Homestuck the next)

    I'm in. I still have something like 75% of last year's buttons, so I'm for sure bringing those. (I have to as my darling wife wants them out of the house).

    I'll most likely do a new button as soon as I come up with a design I can do with my limited photoshop skills. (I have a tentative idea for minecraft meets Rift, but we'll see).

    I think I may join in just for this reason. Saw some pictures of him on Flickr I believe last night.

    Plus...I use every chance I get to design something.

    Say, is there any way to preview your button on that site? I don't want to order 200 and then find out that it's off center or something.

    Just use the guide, and don't put anything critical like text outside of the dashed line.

    Be sure to extend the colour beyond the solid lines though, just so you don't get any possible white bits creeping on the edges.

    With their history, I am confident that you won't get any issues with positioning so long as you follow the supplied guides. That is the main reason they are the official supplier, we know they can deliver in time and don't botch it. They're very easy to work with.

    The only quality issue that is commonly brought up is colour brightness, which is mainly because you're supplying the resources yourself and can't get a proof. Protip: colour correction isn't trivial and hardly any of you are pros, it's very possible it won't be like you expected. Did you calibrate your screen? Is your screen any good period? Do you know how to manage colour profiles? etc. It's not a huge issue but if it really is a concern then do your homework. :)

    I am little bit worried that I might not attend the buttoneering meetup. I might have to catch my flight before the omegathon or have a hour to get to the airport. What can I do? I don't know when the Pre-PAX Dinner is going to happen at what time and I am a college student (no Bars for me in a looong tme)

    Okay I'm a First time PAX/Buttoner. For my first button, I want you to choose the Bonus Button. You can choose 1 button design only. Leave your comments below with #PAXJ1L so I know a count on the buttons. (Updates will follow for the other button designs)

    Going for a sort of college jacket theme with the letters, and also with a nice red border to be recognizable.
    Also representing Santa Clara with the red and white.
    Still love the White Spy, Viva Prohias 8-)

    Well after last year I was able to trade enough buttons from the previous year to justify making a new button for this year. I have a rough concept pegged out but alas I am weak in the ways of photo editing.

    After many loop-holes--and tons of convincing--I am doing the one I wanted to do last year. I am only gonna get maybe 100 of it, though. I have a butt-load from last year's awesome Daisy-Frog...and I think some from Year One (of the Buttoneering, that is) I will have a bonus button as well, but it will be for something else.

    ...May have bonus buttons for the Pokemon folks who trade/battle/Pokewalk with me as well. If I have enough finance that is.

    Please see new avatar for that is my button that I ordered!

    Also ordered the bonus buttons. Those will be a mystery, but are Pokemon-Related. So, trade/battle/pokewalk with me and you'll get one.

    I'm in, and this year I'll probably have two sets of buttons since my Enforcer husband decided he was all bummed out he didn't get buttons too. LOL.

    I think I'm going to use a photo of one of my dogs. :) I know most people design/draw their logos, but I don't have the talent/software to do that...maybe a cute border collie is an acceptable substitute? :)

    I have a magnet of Mr. T advertising for 1-800-Collect (remember!) from college saying 'Call your Mother'. It will always have a hallowed place on my fridge, and your button is a fine companion. It was even a favorite among my gaming group last year.
