Buttons, Mirrors, Magnets by trenchmaker Buttons, Mirrors, Magnets by trenchmaker
oh gawd.... I thought "hey, you should add numbers!" - I'll do that later and reupload WITH numbers (makes ordering so much easier).
My cam has huge problems with focus atm -grmph!pmsing camera sucks- but I think you can recognize all motives. The preivew is BIG, which hopefully helps.

That's the sorted buttons, mirrors and magnets. The yellow background for the magnets is a total pain in the eyes but the only metal surface I can actually move around.

I am still waiting to get the postcard books (should arrive on Friday) and the cases (should arrive next week) but I'll post the general overview later today with a complete overview of availability and prices... and %... oh yes, we all love the %, right? :D

The magnets are basically like buttons with a flat back and a neodym magnet protected by a foil. That way you can't scratch the surface which I first found really odd but those little suckers tend to stick to everything metal within nanoseconds. And yes.. square. The only reason I really wanted to have those. The amount is limited to 120 which sounds a lot but means I have only around 5 per motive.

The other stuff:

Please check the journal for information (tomorrow latest) - I'll start wrapping up orders as soon as the postcards arrive which means the first packages will hopefully leave Berlin on Monday already. O_o

I've really been wondering...

Do you print them yourself or do you let someone do it for you?
Because the colors are awesome. My printer (which is a great one) even can't get the colors that good.

Same thing for the mugs and pillows, how are they made? (Or is that a secret =P )

Oh, in real life these are (were...) much more vibrant and sharp and yes, those are handmade and not produced externally. If your printer prints weird colors it might mean your screen doesn't show the colors correctly or the calibration for the printer is off. In both cases you should ask google or the printer/screen company website how to correct those.

The mugs are produced locally and the pillows are made by artofwhere. Which i stated under the pillow deviation ;)

Yeah, I think it might have been my fault since my dad printed a card this weekend which ended up with the same colors as on his screen. Or it's my computers fault. I'll look into it. Thanks ^^

Anyway thanks for answering, I really adore your work.
Too bad I live in Belgium. Shipping would cost me an arm XD

Um, actually the German postal service simplified the postal system- All we have is Germany and rest of the world (and I think Europe/rest of the world for packages) so it's likely it wouldn't cost that much... at least from here.
Just wanted to mention it even if the information is totally useless. >_<

Ow, really?!

Great, since Germany is right next to Belgium :D
I thought you were from America ^^;

I should really check out this thing in the future...
I'll try see how much it costs ^^

Maybe I can get my parents to let me buy some übercute buttons :D

Good you mentioned actually XD

what website did you go to make this??
trenchmaker Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
website? I bought the machines some years ago myself and normally I do a convention batch with the help of some friends and my bf.
