The image of the button fastener meant to be stitched onto fabric is a play on words with the pinback button. Although the item is not physically holding together the person or fabric, such as a stitched button is used for, the term "holding together" can also relate to mental or emotional state. In this respect, a fun button could be very good for mental health.

Creative House Productions Inc. originated in 1964 and was a design and manufacturing company based in Chicago, Illinois. It was responsible for the creation of many promotional comic pins found in gumball machines and Cracker Jack boxes. Creative House eventually created the brand PinMart, which became the first website to sell lapel pins. PinMart eventually outgrew its parent company and bought Creative House in 2008.
