While I stare through my letterbox waiting for mine:

How are the words 'button' and 'badge' used in the U.S.?

I can speak only for my part of the territory. (Central Texas)

A 'button' is generally a round device, made from a stiff material. Smaller ones are used as fasteners. But advertising 'buttons' tend to be 3 cm to 5 cm, or so in diameter. They are typically produced as relatively large quantities of identical items.

On the orther hand, a 'badge' is typically a rectangular item which is usually personalized for the individual who will wear (or otherwise present) it as a means of identification.

Another type of 'badge' is given as a recognition award. These badges may be of cloth suitable for applique on a garment. Sometimes they are also called 'patches'.

Thanks, Mike - these are even better than the previous issue! Wonder what they'll do for the next one? (Unless TPR beats them to it, of course.)

Alas! I don't have mine yet...

But I did manage to enlist my aunt's (rather old, but still markedly faster than my laptop) desktop today.

Aned while this company http://www.badgeaminit.com/ is called Badge-a-mint, as is their product, they call what is produced a button.
