Cute Rats! Buttons or Magnets

>

Pet rats are often misunderstood and even dismissed, but they can hold such a profound place in our hearts.This set of five magnets or buttons features some cute ratty friends getting up to all sorts of fun!

-----Specs & Physical Details-----

Both variations (buttons or magnets) measure 3.175cm (1.25") in diameter (from edge to edge).The designs are protected by a thin, but resilient mylar layer which makes them water resistant. They can be readily cleaned with a damp cloth as needed. They are not waterproof (though personal experience has shown them to survive an accidental cycle through the washing machine...oops.)The buttons have a metal pinback enclosure. They are durable and good quality.

The magnets have a strong ceramic magnet: they are not just for display, they really work. They can hold up to 6 thick pieces of printer paper! These strong magnets are not glued to the front, instead, they set in a metal bracket that is machine pressed/crimped onto the front. As the magnet is not glued, some limited movement within the piece is possible - this will not affect use.

-----Information on the Cause-----

$1.50 from the sale of each set goes to the Ottawa Pet Rat Society. Ottawa Pet Rat Rescue (OPRats) is a registered, non-profit organization working to raise awareness and share information about pet rats. They are involved in local rescue, fostering, and adopting. their mission is to encourage, educate and support rat-parents and potential rat-parents so that more rats can have happier, healthier lives.

You can read more about them at their website: http://www.ottawaratrescue.com/

-----Tips and Tidbits----

If putting a button on a bag for long term use, consider putting a glob of hot glue on the clasp. This will make it even less likely for the button to be lost as the pin won't be able to leave its cradle!
