The Easybeats - 1in button - pinback badge
Monday morning feels so bad,
Ev'rybody seems to nag me
Coming Tuesday I feel better,
Even my old man looks good,
Wednesday just don't go,
Thursday goes too slow,
I've got Friday on my mind
Gonna have fun in the city,
Be with my girl she's so pretty,
She looks fine tonight,
She is out of sight to me,
Tonight... I spend my bread,
Tonight... I lose my head,
Tonight... I got to get tonight
Monday I have Friday on my mind.
Button for the 1960s Australian Rhythm & Pop group The Easybeats --sometimes lovingly referred to as "The Australian Beatles", because their career as The Easybeats spanned a similar amount of time, and they were probably Oz's biggest musical export at the time. Since I'm king of Australia, I "gotta represent, yo".
This is, essentially, one of my own designs, and you "cannot has" the image to make your own badges. I screen-capped a drumhead from a highly-pixelated MPEG of their performance on a German television show in 1966, performing probably their only song you've ever heard, "Friday On My Mind". To mere mortals, this would have been "unusable", but I sat there in PS6, with the airbrush tool, for FOUR HOURS, touching it up and making it presentable. Seriously, people, these badges look so great because I put actual work into them and am never satisfied with what so many badgers do, which is simply cropping an image and positioning it. Granted, I only went through all that trouble cos I couldn't find a still of that drumhead *anywhere*, but clearly I'm a perfectionist on this.
Rust brown text on French's mustard yellow background. This badge? Looks cool on your shit.
Classic "punk rock" round size that everybody had on their jean jackets in the 1980s.
I accept PayPal (preferred), or Money Orders in US funds or well-concealed cash, sent at buyer's own risk. If you send a personal cheque, I will laugh at you. If you really want to Western Union me, it's hell of expensive on your end, but I guess I can't stop you.

What is this store's return and exchange policy?
Returns and exchanges are accepted within 30days of delivery (determined by tracking number details). All P&P paid by buyer. Exchanges offered for defective or incorrect items only. Refunds only offered on packages that fail to deliver. Refunds cannot be offered to International orders -- it just costs me too much money.
Do you accept orders placed outside of the US?
I sure do!
How long will it take to receive my order?
Once shipped, most domestic orders take anywhere from 2 to 10 business days to arrive depending on the efficiency of your local postal service. International shipping delivery times may vary between 2 and 12 weeks. At the current time, as I am healing from surgery, it may take UP TO A WEEK for me to even post out your order; starting 10 May 2017 for at least the following two weeks, I can only go to the post office on Fridays.
Can you put (this badge) up in your shop?
I *really* try to avoid doing merch for active bands, but obviously I don't hold hard and fast to that rule. If you want my opinion on the "intellectual property" Capitalist lie / scam, read the story "Melancholy Elephants" and read up on the concept of Infosocialism. That said, I'm disabled and living far below the poverty line, so please be careful in your suggestions for my shop.
Do you do custom bulk orders?
Absolutely! I can do 100 pinback badges (up to two designs split 50/50) for $50 (an even 4-design split of 25/25/25/25 for an additional $5), or 100 magnets for $75 (same design split policies apply). If you buy 400 of either ($200 for pins, $300 for magnets), you can get the fifth increment of 100 for free (500 buttons for the price of 400). **you provide the design/s!!!!* My design fees start at $25 for **up to** the first 90min of work, and $15 for every hour of work after that. If you have any further questions, please use the contact form. :-)
I strongly believe that you infringed on my intellectual property / copyright!
Then contact me, **first**. If I have reason to believe that you are claiming ownership over an image that is either public domain or that I myself created, I will do what I need to protect my shop. Just because I don't believe that these laws should exist, in a just world (at least not the way they're currently operating) doesn't mean I lack an understanding in how they work. That said, I'd rather stay in the good graces of other creatives, so I'll usually take it off my online shop (though you really can't stop me from taking it to local evens, just FYI); you really can't claim copyright on original work inspired by your own, or on photos that you do not, yourself, own the copyright on (I will need to see documentation that you do, in fact, own the image). Of course, most bands, musicians, and other creatives are really flattered that I put certain imagery on buttons, and when learning I'm disabled are typically OK with me putting stuff up for sale, because they know or at least understand how hard it is to live on the tiny income afforded by disability allowance. And the MST3K / RiffTrax / Cinematic Titanic guys always reshare my buttons on Instagram -- do you *really* want to seem less cool than Comedy Central legends?
Can you do bigger sizes?
Can you get me the equipment? My current machine has an average price of about $250, and my circle punch averages about $90 -- they *only* accommodate making 1" diameter buttons. If you're willing to pay me enough to get a equipment of similar quality, I will be more than happy to make larger sizes.
I love it! Thanks so much!
This necklace is just beautiful. The beads are very pretty, and it's quite well made. Shipping was quick and the price was very fair. Highly recommended!
