Q: Hi! I'm looking to buy more pieces for my button maker and I was just wondering what pinned/unpinned means? Would this item come with the front piece, back piece, and clear film to put over it? I'm new to this :)

Asked by: Kayla Price - 8/22/2023
A: Normally when you order button supplies, the backs are already pinned. That is the pins come inserted into the backs already. You get shells, mylar, and pinned backs. However, at the moment there is an 8 week lead time for pinning. So we have included the option to get your backs unpinned. In this case you get shells, mylar, unpinned backs, and pins. You have to assemble the backs, put the pins into the backs, before pressing your button.

Q: What do you mean by unpinned VS pinned … do you mean flat backs with no pins? Can the pins be added after construction?

Asked by: Dia J Caulkins - 8/19/2023
A: Unpinned backs are the same as pinned backs except that the pins come in a seperate bag and you have to insert the pins into the backs yourself before pressing your buttons.
