Introduction
Ali Puckett, Owner, Buttonhead LLC

Since 2008, my primary career focus has been development of my own small business, Buttonhead LLC.  The company started in an apartment bedroom with one small piece of production equipment.  Today, it has a full retail product line, a growing studio, and an established client base.  I am assisted in day-to-day operations by my husband and Production Manager, Joel Peters.  Together, we are dedicated to the continued growth of the company through quality products and excellent customer service.  We are an American, family-operated small business who is excited for the continued evolution of our company.  We appreciate your interest and look forward to connecting with you.
