I use these buttons to run the lighting console on a hit Broadway show. I've tried USB buttons from other websites, but these are by far the best! Dave was such a pleasure to deal with! He was so accommodating and very quick to answer emails. I had a very specific design for a box with 2 buttons and he built it perfectly as I envisioned it. I am recommending him to all my friends and colleagues in New York City!

About

I needed a thing, so I made it.

Basically, I needed a Qlab remote for my job as an audio engineer, and the commercially available options either didn't have the features I wanted, or were too complicated for my needs. So I did some research, learned some programing and made my own. I decided that since this worked so well for me, I should try to sell it. So I made one and put it up here...

Then I needed a button for a DIY photobooth I was putting together for my wedding. Using the same skills I used to make the Qlab Remote, I made the Big Red Button. I decided to start selling those as well. I made a few different versions, and they've been mildly popular with other people who are making photobooths and also those who find other uses for them.

The DLR Scream box was actually an idea a friend of mine had, and I started working on it. Eventually I got a decent prototype together and put a video out online. It did pretty well on Reddit, so I made a couple more to sell.

I'm just a guy who makes things, and I like the fun of pushing a physical button to make something happen. Arcade buttons are my favorite, and I like to work with them as much as I can.

Hello! I'm happy to make custom orders or large quantity orders. Please send me a convo or custom order request describing exactly what you'd like in detail, and the time frame of your project. It's just me in my basement soldering away, so don't expect 50 buttons tomorrow, but I will certainly do my best to get you what you need. Most custom or large quantity orders take at least 2 weeks before shipping, because that's how long it takes to get all my parts ordered and shipped to me.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
For custom orders, payment is required before the item is completed. I'm sorry, but I can't do volume discounts. However, for orders of ten or more buttons, standard shipping costs within the continental USA are on me.
Shipping
Most items ship via USPS 2-day Priority mail within 3 days of payment. Most often orders ship out the next day.

I DO NOT OFFER EXPRESS SHIPPING. Your order will be shipped via USPS Priority mail. It will arrive in 2 or 3 days (if you are in the USA). That is the fastest service I can provide. Even if you ask for express shipping in the notes section of the order, your order will still be shipped via USPS Priority 2-3 day mail.

I will not ship using UPS, FedEx, DHL or whatever other company you like. I ship via USPS.

Please allow extra shipping time for orders with a custom keystroke. If your keystroke is not on the list, I may not have a code ready to load onto your button. I can make the code, but it takes a bit of extra time to get it done.

For orders of ten or more buttons, standard domestic shipping is on me. Send me a convo, though, and I'll make you a custom listing for large quantities.

ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: International orders are shipped via USPS Priority International, which takes 6-10 days, if everything goes smoothly. You are responsible for import taxes in your country. Also, please note that some countries take extra time to process packages containing electronics. I've sent packages to Brazil that have been received 6 weeks after I sent them. Also, my international shipping costs are high because I use USPS Priority mail which gets me a tracking number. It's the most reliable shipping company in the United States and also the least expensive for shipping internationally. I am not responsible for your purchase of items that your country will not allow to be imported. If you buy something from me and it isn't allowed in your country, you will not get a refund unless the item is returned to me in good condition.
Refunds and Exchanges
Ordinarily, once you've ordered and received your button, it's yours. Let me know if there's a problem, and I'll work with you to solve it.

Any returns may be subject to restocking fees, especially for large quantity or custom orders.

Frequently asked questions

Can you program the buttons to do X?

The buttons are pre-programmed before shipping to the keystroke that you specify. They work just like a USB keyboard. If you can type a keystroke or key-combination or keyboard shortcut on your computer to do a certain task, I can assign your button to send that keystroke. Multiple keystrokes, such as CTRL+ALT+S, are possible.

How do I take the button apart to install it?

Check out the video at the link below showing how to take apart the Big Red Button, LED arcade, and Arcade buttons.

I need my button tomorrow! Can you help me?

No. Please do not contact me about expedited shipping. My standard shipping methods are very fast for the price, and there isn't much I can do to get an item to you faster. If you order something on Monday, and need it on Friday, feel free to mention that in the order, and I'll do what I can to get your order out ASAP. But if you place an order on Monday and need it on Wednesday, you can't be upset with me when it arrives on Thursday. Plan ahead.
