Barack Obama’s Official Button Supplier

Buttons can be big business – just ask Tigereye Design.  The company is based in Greenville, Ohio and is the main supplier of buttons, yard signs, posters, t-shirts, etc. for Barack Obama’s campaign.  How much is that contract worth?  Over $6 million and counting.

There is a very intersting article in the Dayton Daily News that profiles this company.  For example…

Tigereye had 30 employees when it began the Obama contract in February 2007; now it has 175 workers and Hemminger expects to add 30 more.

The first time we covered this company on this blog was when they made a snafu making an Obama button with a Larry Craig picture on it.  But, when you are making that many buttons, your bound to make a few mistakes.
