NEW EXTENDED DEADLINE: 22 September 2022 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 or when the deadline is. We tried to get things done a bit earlier this year but there are simply not enough submissions in yet to avoid us getting nervous.
We therefore decided to extend the call for entries until the end of 22 September. Thank you to all the participants who already sent in their entries!
See our dedicated competition page 18th annual Button Badge Design Competition, where you find links to contest and artwork guidelines PDF and Photoshop PSD templates.

A Big THANK YOU for everybody who managed to join us yesterday at our illustrators' Fair Stereohype stand. It was such a pleasure to finally observe customers browse our button badges. The sound. The interaction. The chats. We missed that. Back to being an online shop now. I hope you will still enjoy browsing our collection – even if you find Music- or Cat-themed badges so much easier and faster online… ;) Big thanks to Josh – our first-time Stereohype assistant for the day. There are a few more snapshots over at our @stereohype Instagram feed.

These incredible pictures were taken last weekend however and show our Stereohype mascot squirrel sculpture – out in the wild – hibernating a little in beautiful Ardèche. Our sculpture's #SaveTheStereohypeSquirrel story has been documented over at flat33.com. The squirrel's fluorescent neon orange-red polygon nut is spending winter in a shed by the way.
