Hey that sure makes it sound easy. Your video was very informative and well done, Thanks.
I’ve been making buttons for years- I’ve recently had some issues with mylar and it’s causing a lot of waste. The problem is fuzz or dust- I keep the mylar in a sealed bag- my workspace is clean. But I always seem to get a fuzz particle under the mylar- forcing me to throw it away! I’ve tried wiping the mylar with a clean cloth- time consuming but better… do you ever have this issue and what do you do?
Wonderful video. It was a great help.
Humidity helps to minimize the dust problem, so a humidifier or, if you have the choice, make your buttons on a rainy day. Also keep yourself static-free: wear cotton clothing (not wool or synthetics) and keep your hands from getting too dry.
I also leave the mylar in its stack until I need it for making the button so that it doesn’t have much opportunity to get dusty.
Hope this helps a bit; I know from my old photography/darkroom days dust can be truly annoying.
Hey, guys! I really like your website and your button machines. I’ve recently started a project creating stuff that is useful around young people’s houses, like bean bags and other things like that and instead of printing my logo I’ve decided to use pin buttons. But after doing some research I discovered that is best to buy myself a pin button machine instead of ordering pin buttons.
Although I really like the 1 inch model, I was wondering if it is necessary to buy another machine for a different size of pin (and here I am talking strictly about the round models) or I can buy spare parts for a single machine that will allow me to do pin buttons of different sizes.
So, can you help me out?
