How to order buttons

FSF buttons are available by at least five methods:
  • Order one from the Free Software Foundation (easy).
  • Buy one on the secondhand market (waste time looking).
  • Steal one off a friend's chest (dangerous).
  • Photocopy a friend's button (or download the source code and print the text of the button) and use your buttonmaker to make your own button (difficult if you don't have the proper equipment).
  • Create one from thin air using your psychic powers (that's cheating!)

Recent Buttons

  • "Ask me about Free Software. It's all about freedom." (2 1/4" white round with color pictures of the Gnu head, Tux and the BSD Devil.)
  • "FSF Pinball Wizard. 2002-08-14" (2 inch black on white, round, with picture of a Gnu playing a pinball machine.)
  • "FIGHT for your right to play CDs. digitalspeech.org" (smaller 1.5 inch white button with words enclosed in a blue "cartoon speaking" bubble.)
