wanna buy a button?

just sitting around fooling with Photoshop and getting quotes. This would be a 2.25 inch button. Cost probably around 40¢. Would you buy it for 2 dollars? 3 for $5?

Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Still thinking about (making up and) wearing a Truck Fump t-shirt during my next vote, since the Supreme Court decided that a prohibition against wearing political clothing to the polls is just too darn vague.

my personal judging committee gave two additional requests for the button in red. Note the addition of strokes on lettering.



So how about it, would you buy this one over the one in black?

I'm hoping for something that is eye-catching and seriously addresses and motivates people to campaign and vote in November 2020. I'm looking for suggestions.
(I think the above one is too short-lived, contains that juvenile/word play ass joke (and it's someone else's artwork).

LOL @ buttons being what will "seriously address" and "motivate people to campaign and vote."

I think the ass version would get more attention, and laughs.

True, but I was aiming for proof of concept. You could always do your own artwork, but considering how appropriate this was (without me barely having to hunt for it), I was pretty happy with it. And the pink sparkles are all too appropriate as well, considering the guy's tendency towards the LGBTQIA+ community.

But I wasn't meaning it seriously, of course. If you're looking for something serious and motivating, I suggest you stick with a positive rather than negative message.

I know you weren't serious. But quite honestly, I haven't heard one 'positive' slogan. Here's a few real ones:



see what I mean?

Well, as that is a quote and not a slogan, it seems a bit of a poor comparison.

Kamala Is using "For the People" and "FEARLESS"

Elizabeth Warren is using "Nevertheless We Persist" and "Dream Big, Fight Hard, Live Proud"

Cory Booker is using "We Rise"

Pete Buttigieg is using "Boot Edge Edge" and "A Fresh Start for America"

Kirsten Gillibrand is using "Brave Wins" and "Fight Like Hell"

Amy Klobuchar is using "Amy for America" and "Igualidad"/"Equality"

And so on....

uh, those are slogans as recognized by their campaigns, not merely quotes.Perhaps my running them all together to illustrate how ineffectual they are confused you?

Guess I just didn't see yours as especially more compelling, but de gustibus non disputandum est.
