Product

All Stereohype button badges available at stereohype.com are classic high quality one inch (25mm) metal back badges with so-called D-pin (although it looks more like an 'e'). Tiny stickers at the back mention the artist, release date, series number, etc. The growing collection of these mobile mini canvases – featuring over 1,600 individual designs by over 600 international graphic designers, illustrators, photographers and artists – consists of all B.I.O. (By Invitation Only) contributions, winners of Stereohype's annual button badge design competition and additional series such as the special collaborations: AFOMFS SeriesMICA Series, 10x10 Series and Emoji Series. Badges are manufactured in the United Kingdom.

Design

Vision: "Forget about your contact lenses with this 'objet trouvé' from a Golden Gate bridge viewer." China: "Is there anything these days that is not made in China? A reminder to the growing Asian power." Steak: "This means 'steak' in Japanese, a stylish statement for all carnivores."
