What you need to get started making buttons

  • Ink Jet - important note - inkjet printers have super high resolution which is great for tiny buttons. But the resolution is dependent on the paper you use. You'll want to make sure to use "Graphics" or "Presentation" paper so that the ink doesn't spread but is also not super thick. Photo paper doesn't work well in many button makers.
  • Laser - if you have a good laser printer this is the way to go. It's quality is not dependent on paper but the resolution usually isn't as high as similarly priced inkjet

 

 

 

 

NOTE:
You will need a way to design your buttons, usually on a computer. Here are the options we provide
NOTE:
We don't carry printers or paper. But you will need a way to get your button designs from the computer onto paper. These are the most common

NOTE:
Once your designs are printed, you'll need to cut them into circles. Here are your options

NOTE:
You will need supplies to make buttons. We also carry magnet supplies, key chains, mirrors, and more. Supplies almost always come with everything you need, mylar, pinned backs, etc. The only exception is if you order "mylar only," etc. from the Bits-n-Pieces section.
NOTE:
Finally, you will need a button making machine. Our ProMaker comes in several sizes to choose from and are very well made machines.  
The MultiMaker has changeable dies and are recommended for lower volume production. 
We also bundle Machines, with Punches, and Supplies in the All-in-One Kits section.
