The following materials are required: Metal shell, Metal back, Plastic cover, and paper with a printed graphic. When you order parts from us you get the metal shells, Metal backs, Plastic Covers, and other accessorys if available.
The only material we do not provide is paper for printing your graphics on. You can use common home/office printer paper to print or draw your graphic on. You can use siccors to cut your graphic in a circle or you can purchase one of our circle cutters to do the job.
Yes, some fabrics can be pressed and made into a button. Usually thin fabrics work best. We have made buttons with the plastic cover covering the fabric and we have made fabric buttons without the plastic cover using our machines. We do not have a recomendation of which fabrics are guarnteed to work. If you want you can mail us a swatch of fabric you plan on using and we can tell you if it will work in our machines.
Shipping cost depends on the weight of the package and where it is shipping to. To get a shipping cost you can add an item to your shopping cart, check out, and enter your zip code to see the shipping cost of your items(s). You are not required to make any payment to view these prices.
On your button machine locate the die where you insert the shell. Measure the portion of the die as shown in the picture.
Manufacturers sometimes create a button machine so that only their parts work in it. Our parts that we sell may not work in your machine even if the size seems correct. If you know the size of your machine but you do not know the manufacturer, contact us and we can send you some sample parts to see if they indeed fit your machine.
If you return the machine past your due date we will charge you for being late by deducting it from your security deposit. We charge you for an additional month for each month the machine is late. We are allowed 60 days to credit your PayPal account or Credit Card. If you return the machine later than 60 days then we refund your deposit by sending you a Money Order.
