This button features the mascot for the Busy Beaver Button Company. The company is based out of Chicago and is still active today. It was founded in 1995, and began modestly as a one-woman operation. Over the last two decades the company has grown having produced millions of buttons for a wide array of clients including NBC and the Art Institute of Chicago

The company is located in a vintage 1920s Chicago style storefront and utilizes a number of eco-friendly options. Among these green options are:  recycled steel for button parts, geothermal heating/cooling, eco-friendly insulation, solar panels, and local material suppliers. 

To commemorate the 15th anniversary of the company, the Busy Beaver Button Museum was established. The museum is open to public.
