Printing a popular phrase from our videos for National Button Day (November 16)

November 16th is National Button Day and we couldn’t consider a much better woodcut to print than this one. We got this woodcut in January from one of our fans, Mark from Melville, Saskatchewan, Canada. It is a woodcut of an expression that shows up in a whole lot of our printing shop videos.

For those questioning the origin of the expression, “Press the red switch, Howard,” it began around 14 months earlier when Jared initially asked Howard if roles could be turned around and also he could print something for a video clip. While tape-recording the video, Howard asked yourself exactly how as well as when to stop taping. Jared stated, “Press the red switch,” describing the quit switch on a phone, and also the phrase has stuck ever before considering that.
