"I have bought fabulous buttons from Richard and Teddy for twenty-five years. No mere sellers, these guys are world-class buttonologists. They know their stuff, and they provide the absolute best selection of choice buttons. And if they don’t have or can’t find the button of your design dreams, they know where and how to have it made. You can’t do better."

— Elizabeth Allison Craig, Clothing Designer and Manufacturer, NYC

"I feel lucky to have been sourcing buttons from Buttonology since 2013. They have an incredible range of high-quality buttons for excellent prices, and low minimums. Working with Richard and Teddy is always a pleasure, they are lovely guys, always accommodating, and are great communicators. I wish I had such a good relationship with all of my trims vendors!"

— Holly Samuelsen, Gravel & Gold, San Francisco, CA

"I’d be lying to you, if I said the guys at Buttonology are good, because we think they are amazing! We’ve been working with them literally from the start of our business - when I would have spelled ligne as line - and before we had ever considered the pros and cons of dyeing a button before or after etching in a logo. They’ve been there every step of the way and continue to be, as we continue to expand as a company. There are lots of places to buy buttons, but I guarantee you they won’t have nearly the same level of service you’ll get from the great group of guys at Buttonology."

— Kelly Moffat, Co-Founder and Director of Operations, Kirrin Finch.
