Think You're Funny?

Send Us Your Laughs!

Since 1980, Ephemera has been producing Novelty Buttons, Magnets, and Stickers. You'll find our stuff all over the place - cutting edge card & gift shops, bookstores, music stores, gay & left wing shops, porno stores, coffee shops, etc. Some of our best designs end up on products made by companies we license to for T-shirts, cards, books, towels, mugs, calendars, etc.

MAKE US LAUGH OUT LOUD! We're looking for satirical slogans about pop culture, politics & the president, job attitudes, women's & men's issues, coffee, booze, pot, drugs, religion, food, aging, teens, gays & lesbians, sexual come-ons & put-downs. But please don't limit yourself to these topics. Surprise us!

Be fresh, original and concise. Our buttons and magnets are small, so we are looking for HIGH IMPACT gems of wit stated in AS FEW WORDS AS POSSIBLE. Ephemera has a reputation for coming up with the most irreverent, provocative and outrageously funny material on the market. We encourage you to be as weird, twisted and rude as you like.

INCLUDE A SELF-ADDRESSED STAMPED ENVELOPE for our reply. Submissions without a SASE will not be returned to you. The best way to submit slogans is to send us a typed or written list. Please don't waste trees by sending us stacks of cards.

Other Stuff You Should Know:


Expect our initial response within 1-5 months depending on how backlogged we are. We're always looking for fresh material. We put together lists of our favorite slogans and let buyers round the country vote on the ones they like best. If your slogans get enough votes, we will produce them and pay you UPON ACCEPTANCE. We will send you samples of the buttons, magnets and/or stickers when we produce them in January or June.

Success Rate:

We want you to be realistic about the probabilities of selling your slogans to us. We buy less than 1% of all the thousands of ideas submitted to us. Good Luck! Feel the magic!
