Button Machine Instructions

Overview

Buttons provide a convenient and effective way for brands and other advertising gimmicks to go around. Simply wearing a button allows you to show off slogans and logos of different companies and names to any person you come across with. This can also be pinned to bags, clothes or bulletin boards. You can order buttons online or have a specialist do them for you. If you have a button machine, you even have the convenience of making one yourself in huge amounts and during your free time.

Skill

Moderate

Things You’ll Need

Paper with printed logo or graphic

Adjustable rotary cutter

Button machine

Button shell

Mylar

Step 1

Cut the paper with the printed graphic into a circle using an adjustable rotary cutter. Lay the paper with the right side down on the cutting mat. Cut along the edges of the circle using the blade of the cutter until you obtain your desired strip.

Step 2

Set the button machine on a flat surface to make sure that you punch the buttons accurately. The button machine has a die table which is the plate that holds the button. You will use the levers or handles of the button machine to press the paper into the buttons.

Step 3

Get a button shell and insert it onto the die table of the machine. Insert the cut graphics paper, keeping its right side facing you. Adjust the position of the paper to make sure that the picture or text is placed at the center of the button.

Step 4

Fit the Mylar over the button and rotate the machine’s die table to your left. Pull the button machine’s lever down to press the paper, Mylar and button shell together for at least 5 seconds. Release the handle to bring it back to its original position.

Step 5

Place the clasp of the pin at the button’s back and make sure that it is firmly pressed and centered at the back of the button.

Quality article writer. I used to write for http://domaindesignshop.com/ but the owner ran away with 2 months worth of articles and never paid me for my work. Articles published in this blog are all mine. If you have been sold these articles before, get in touch with your ghostwriters or companies again as they most likely have no rightful ownership to these creations. I have proofs that these articles are mine and can show you when they were written.
