Among the many, many questions that we receive on a daily basis are:
How awesome is it being immersed in the wonderful world of buttons on a daily basis? (Answer: awesome!)
Can you make fabric-covered buttons with your button machines? (Answer: yes!)
What is the meaning of life? (Answer: we don’t know, but when we find out we will make custom pinback buttons and send one to all of our past, present, and future customers!)
Those, of course, are just three of the myriad questions we get asked. Another of the common queries revolves around two different types of cutters that we offer: the 2.25″ photo punch cutter and the 2.25″ graphic punch cutter.
The primary difference between the two cutters is the size of the circle they cut out, and there is a very specific reason why this is the case. You see, a 2.25″ button machine can’t use true photo paper because it is too thick. Thus, the photo punch cutter actually cuts a circle that is slightly smaller than the standard graphic punch cutter.
