Scissors and gluestick

Hi, I'm Catherine - artist, owner and designer at Prickly Cactus Collage. We are a proudly queer/bisexual-owned small business, with a focus on activist and feminist pins, buttons and badges. I think of pins / badges as a small, stylish and fun way to show your individuality and personality. They let you share a bit of what matters to you, to the world, and I love supporting you in that journey!

A bit about me: I live and breathe feminism, bi+ visibility and activism, photography, collage, vegetarian cooking, connecting with friends, everything vintage, as well as traveling and exploring this amazing world we live in. I am an artist, living with chronic pain, including fibromyalgia and depression. I have never met a vegetable I didn’t like and have traveled far and wide, including an exciting solo adventure to the Arctic Circle.

I live downtown in an apartment by the lake, full of books and art. I create the buttons we sell, to order, in a little corner of my house. Although we are in Canada’s biggest city - Toronto - we have set down strong roots here. Our home is full of music and poetry - from bluegrass to punk rock, and new wave to house music.

What Do Our Customers Say?

"Our pins came out just perfect! We are so thankful! Seller was very open and receptive to my ideas and it was just a wonderful experience to work with such a kind and lovely person. Thank you again!"

"I'm so happy with this purchase! Catherine was very quick to confirm and personalize my order and easily accommodated my change of address. Shipping across the country was fast, and the magnets are very strong. The magnets are well-made and look great on my chalkboard!"

"Shipped very quickly, and with a bonus button with a lovely picture of pumpkin pie on it. When I ordered two buttons separately from this provider, they shipped them together, refunded shipping prices on one of the buttons and sent me a lovely message informing me of this. Great customer service, and I will certainly consider buying from this seller again if I see they have something else that catches my interest!"

Frequently asked questions
How long will it take to receive my parcel?

Please check your order confirmation email for current processing times (information is also displayed at checkout). To this you must add time spent in the postal system.

There are random delays in all forms of mail and courier delivery at the moment, depending on destination (B.C. is particularly slow right now due to last year's floods and this year's snow).

Most items to Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan are now going by surface (aka boat) and so we have suspended shipping to those destinations until the situation improves.

Do you include tracking?

We DO NOT offer tracking within Canada unless specifically requested and paid for, in an effort to keep shipping costs at their lowest. You will see tracking options as an add-on at checkout. Tracking is included for most US orders.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Buttons are carefully packaged in small bags; magnets are attached back to back across a small card, and then placed in an envelope or small bag (to ensure that they do not get loose when traveling through the post). We do provide gift wrapping using tissue and washi tape if requested - please send us a note on checkout using the "Note to Seller" field. We can also include a small gift card - just let us know what wording you would like us to use and be sure to sign your name.

We cannot gift wrap mugs at this time.

Sizing details

Buttons are now available in 1 inch, 1.25 inch, and 2.5 inches in diameter. Our most popular sized buttons are the 1.25 inch badges. This is quite small: ever-so-slightly larger than an American or Canadian quarter. Please familiarize yourself with the size before ordering so as to avoid disappointment when your buttons arrive.

Custom and personalised orders

We are happy to take custom orders. Please send us a convo to discuss details.Usually only a few words or a very simple design would be appropriate. If in doubt, send us your design and we can show you what it would look like .

Wholesale availability

We do offer wholesale on buttons and magnets, for retail resale only. Please DM for details.

Shipping seems extraordinarily high... what gives?

Sometimes the Etsy shipping calculator goes bananas, especially if you are ordering multiple single buttons (ie 25 single buttons). Please send an email before checking out and we can setup a custom listing for you. If you have already checked out please send a message and we will reimburse the difference between the Etsy calculation and actual shipping cost. We do our best to catch these shipping overages as they occur but sometimes they slip past. Please don't be shy!

What can I do if my item has not yet arrived?

Please double check the address you submitted to us on checkout. We cannot refund items that are not deliverable due to incomplete or incorrect addresses - PLEASE CHECK YOUR ADDRESS IS CORRECT before ordering.

For all other orders, we ask for your patience as delays are between 1 and 2 weeks right now, depending on circumstances at specific processing plants and post offices. If your item has not arrived within 3 weeks please reach out and we can discuss next steps.
