Frequently Asked Questions

We often get questions about how to use ButtonUp™, perhaps you’ve had these same questions. If so, here are the answers:

Q: What surfaces do the included magnets adhere to?

A: Refrigerator, file cabinet, metal door, cubical or any steel surface that attracts magnets.

Q: What surfaces do the included tacks adhere to?

A: Walls, wooden doors, bulletin boards, cubicles with wood backing and other softer non-magnetic, non-smooth surfaces.

Q: What surfaces do the included suction cups adhere to?

A: Windows, glass partitions, mirrors, stainless steel refrigerators, and other smooth, non-magnetic surfaces.

Q: What if the suction cups won’t stick to my brushed stainless steel refrigerator?

A: Use a small amount baby oil, mineral oil or Vaseline on the suction cups to improve stick on this kind of non-magnetic surface.

Q: What if the backing in my cubical is too hard for the tacks, and magnets won’t work either?

A: Simply make hooks from paperclips to hook into the cubical fabric and hang from pre-punched holes in the corners of ButtonUp™. You can also try using small nails instead of tacks. Get creative.

Q: Can I use any color dry erase pens to write or draw on ButtonUp™?

A: Sure, you can draw or write with any color, but ONLY on the back, smooth sheet of ButtonUp™; not the rough, front sheet. The back, smooth sheet is easy to clean by wiping off dry erase marker with a wet towel and water.

It just makes sense
