These are photos of machines that people have sent in or brought into the store. This is meant as a rough guide only. We cannot guarantee that our parts will be compatible with your machine based solely on a photo. Each brand of button machine usually comes in different sizes. Even if you find a machine in the gallery that looks like your machine it is still possible to purchase the wrong parts. Please see our return policy in the event that happens.
Steps to identifying the parts you need
1. Measure the button parts you already have. Measure straight across the middle of the shell (the curved metal piece). If you do not have button parts measure the inside of the die. Please note that this is only going to get you in the ballpark. Common sizes are 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2", 1-3/4", 2-1/4", 3", and 3-1/2".
2. Look at the photos below to see if your machine looks anything like these.
3. Follow the links to the button parts that are closest to the size you need.
4. If you do not see a machine that looks like yours on this page, please send us a photo of it. If you send it along with your name, address, and phone number we'll send you some free sample parts in exchange. : ) Then you can tell us how the parts worked in your machine and we'll post it here.
Compatible with Standard Parts in these sizes: 1-3/4" and 6"
The 1-1/4, 2-1/2, 3, and 3-1/2 use standard size button parts with slightly larger mylar. We do not currently stock the larger mylar but can order it for you. Sometimes you can get away with using our standard mylar in this machine, but sometimes not depending on how the machine was put together. If you are using particularly thick paper you are more likely to experience difficulty when using our standard mylar.

This machine came from "somewhere in Canada" and does not appear to work with our standard 1 inch parts. We are not sure about any other sizes. if you happen to have this machine in sizes other than 1 inch, please contact us for samples.
|This is a Talent button machine made in China. It uses metric sized parts that are not available from us at this time.||This also uses metric parts that we do not carry. This machine looks almost exactly like the Talent machine pictured to the left, only it is really light weight, does not have a brand named stamped on it, and lacks a stopping mechanism that makes lining up the dies quite a chore.|
This machine came into the shop broken, so we weren't able to do a proper test, but it appeared to work with the 2-1/4 Badge-A-Minit parts. It is on a wooden base and has the following on the label:
|This machine, called the E-Z Button Press, was reported to work with our Standard 2-1/4 inch button sets.||The only thing we know for sure about this machine is that it does not work with our standard 2-1/4 inch mirrors. If you have this machine, please get in touch with us!|
