It was in May in the year of 2011 that Button Man Printing was born first as The Button Man Shop. It began with a simple purchase by our founder Jake “The Button Man” Martens when he purchased a used button making machine. As he talked with his customers about what their needs were, he quickly began to dream about what this company could become.
In July of 2010, he purchased his first heat press in order to make custom designed shirts, however this is not the business he received and he was quickly expanding beyond shirts and began to also offer tote bags, mouse pads, and mugs.
In an effort to better help people understand that he was selling more than just buttons, the name was changed once again in September 2010, this time to The Button Man Print Shop. While not the name we were using online, this name kept us thinking about our roots while also helping to share that we do more than just buttons. It was also at this time that the business was expanded to include wide format printing. The Button Man’s vision of an all purpose printer was beginning to take hold.
In 2013, Jake began talking with Mark Burger about teaming up and taking the Button Man to new heights starting with a move out of the second bedroom of Jake’s house into the old Burger Drugs in downtown Saint Charles. Beginning in 2014 our name was officially changed to Button Man Printing. We decided to keep this name as a call back to our roots, but with a logo change as well, we wanted to make sure people knew that our company had grown up and we were now taking all forms of printing more seriously.
We stepped out on faith, knowing that we could provide the best possible service in town and purchased multiple high end color and black and white digital presses as well as 2 high tech top of the line cutters. This greatly expanded our capabilities and our efficiency. With humble beginnings and hard work, Button Man Printing has grown to something more than just a button shop, and has become your all purpose printing company.
