Where can I find one button machine that makes different size buttons? That’s a questions we get asked almost on a daily basis; sometimes twice in one day. So why don’t we just make one? There are actually a few very good reasons. Allow me to share with you some quality insider information. Continue reading →
Last week we began our month long series on March Magnets and focused on our super-strong Ceramic Magnets.
This week we are focusing on customer inquiries and here is one from the frequent flier file. How can I wear a button without putting a hole in my shirt? Or, sweater or coat or, well you get the idea. The answer is… drum roll please… Mag Tags. Never heard of them? Well then, you’re in for a treat.
Welcome back for post #2 in our weeklong series discussing American-made button maker kits and Chinese-made button maker kits. Yesterday we provided an overview and debunked a few myths about Chinese 3-in-1 button machines. Today we are going to do a button maker price comparison, contrasting the costs of Chinese-made button makers to the costs of our American-made button makers.
First, let’s take a look at the hard costs as we dig into this button maker price comparison.
As you can imagine, the last thing any of us wants is to spend a lot of time designing a button, only to find out that all the dimensions are off and the photograph of Uncle Larry seems to have him missing an arm once you put the poor guy in the button. So, in order to help you avoid unnecessary frustration and to help Uncle Larry keep his arm, here are the tools for your templates.
Welcome to the third edition of our continuing daily Button University series. In previous posts, we tackled issues related to button making instructions and button sizes, and today we look at button machine designs; and specifically, how ABM products incorporate the best button machine design standards in the ever burgeoning button maker market.
Let’s make one thing clear right off the bat: we believe that our button makers incorporate the finest materials and technology to consistently produce quality buttons time and time again. In no way is this meant to disparage our competition. Rather, it is a simple proclamation to our customers that you can completely trust that the products you receive from American Button Machines will be the best. Period.
Why are we so confident that our products employ the best button machine design standards? Let’s count out a few of the reasons:
On Friday, we introduced you to our new series of posts that highlight some of the information available at the Button University resource of our main website. The first post in the series provided step-by-step instructions for any button making project. Today, we delve into an important decision that must be made when you are making buttons: with all of the different button sizes available, which one should you use for your project?
Over at our main website, we have a handy-dandy table that you can use for quick reference regarding decisions on button sizes. While we could simply repost that table here, what would be the fun in that? Plus, we know that some people don’t always like looking at tables and charts. So we will use our space here to outline, in a little more detailed fashion, which button sizes and button machine options work best for producing different button types and styles.
Hello there fellow button makers! We have not posted on The Button Blog since the Button University series ended, so I wanted to explain the short hiatus…because more posts are on their way.
For a long time we have received inquiries about the differences between American-made button maker systems and the 3-in-1 (or all-in-one) button makers manufactured in China. In an effort to provide a substantial and detailed response to these questions, we have been hard at work preparing some content around this topic. The articles are currently in the editing and staging phase and will be posted in various forms both here at the button blog and at the American Button Machines main website.
So stay tuned, because more content is coming. And if, for some reason, you come to the end of this post and just happen to be in the planning stage of a button making project and looking for a little guidance as to what button sizes you should choose, hop on over to the main website for our newest page about button sizes; or stay right here and read the button sizes post we did during the Button University series.
