Please note that this is a new button. The design is from a vintage re-election campaign button for Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Since Roosevelt was re-elected 3 times (1936, 1940, 1944) for President of the United States, I'm not exactly sure which campaign this button was for, but I suspect it is from the 1940 campaign. The 1940 campaign was special because it was the first time that a President ran for a third term.
This high quality pin button is made from metal, yet lightweight and durable with a strong safety pin.
.: Diameter: 2"
.: Safety pin backing

All-Over Print (AOP) is a printing method that uses dye-sublimation to print a design onto polyester. During the dye sublimation process the dye is absorbed into the fabric. Since, it is not printed on the surface, like most t-shirts, it provides for a fantastic soft-to-the-touch feel and superior breathability.
AOP is a more time consuming method than screen printing or direct-to-garment (DTG) printing, so the prices are higher and the production times are longer, but the results are most definitely worth it.
Advantages of AOP:
The design won't peel off, unlike typical screen printing.
The design is part of the fabric of the item, so it will last as long as the item does.
The intensity of color is often unmatched.
Giclée (pronounced zhee-CLAY or often gee-CLAY) is a printing process that creates a museum quality, archival print. Special acid-free, paper is printed with fade resistant ink using a state-of-the-art, large format inkjet printer.
Gallery wrap is a style of displaying a canvas that doesn't show any visible staples or nails holding the fabric to the wooden stretcher bars. This style of canvas is intended to be hung unframed.
Mirrored edges (mirror wrap) is used to show the whole image on the main surface, rather than printing the edges of the image on the sides (image wrap) of the canvas frame. It is usually used when there is necessary detail on the edges of the image. Image wrap is used when the focal point of the image is in the center.

I’m pretty disappointed in my button. There is a wide white barrier along the top and right of the button that looks quite bad. I’ll likely not wear it and probably won’t offer from this shop again. I’m sorry.
