NEW EXTENDED DEADLINE: 28 September 2020
In the last few years we always launched our call for entries to our annual badge contest around the April / May mark. Due to moving house and studio – and the pandemic, we have this year only managed to launch the design competition in August. Tonight we caved in. We cracked. We got wobbly knees – there are simply not enough submissions in yet. The vast majority is always being submitted in the last few days before the deadline – regardless of when exactly we launch the call for entries.
This year however, submissions are not pouring in at a fast enough rate to prevent us from being nervous. We therefore decided to extend the call for entries for one week until the end of 28 September. Thank you to all the participants who already sent in their entries!
See our dedicated competition page 16th annual Button Badge Design Competition, where you find links to contest and artwork guidelines PDF and Photoshop PSD templates.

Happy Stereohype-browsing everybody!

What a few last weeks... We moved from Clerkenwell to London’s beautiful Barnsbury, N1. This was a snapshot of the first of many packed vans. Mountains of boxes have been shifted from A to B and back, and we are now heading to a well-deserved break after all these locked down months. Our server and shopping system are being upgraded for a fresh new start in September. We’ll then also try our best to somehow organise a super-speedy edition of our annual button badge design competition. Please stay tuned and may the sun shine on all of us!

We are over the moon that our FL@33-designed Stereohype certification seal, embossed into our Button Badge Motif Prints, is featured in the new book Modern Heraldry: Volume 2 by Counter-Print Books.
The type was set with a thinner weight so that it looks just right when pressed through the 310gsm Hahnemühle German Etching paper of the fine art prints. The D-pin and back of badge is life-sized – like the original 25mm/1" Stereohype badges. Project info at flat33.com.

Good news! Stereohype update: we now have piles and piles of stamps and can dispatch all stocked items faster again! Our local post office is closed during the UK lockdown but we are open for business and will be jogging to the post box at the end of the street whenever we need... A great excuse to leave the house. Happy browsing for lockdown essentials and gifts for friends and family.
Please note that many of our graphic art prints are printed on demand. We have a lot of them in stock – ready to ship – but please do check availability of prints by emailing us, if it is urgent, as we can currently unfortunately not produce new prints during the UK lockdown.
