Hey Button makers. Earlier this month I dedicated and entire post to 5 Things to know about Ceramic Magnets. Anybody remember? Of course you do – I knew you would! What better way to wrap up our March Magnets Series than to share “5 Things to know about Peel & Stick Magnets”?
Continuing our March Magnets theme this week I’m sharing with you a few of the differences between American Button Machines (ABM) magnet sets and those of Badge-a-Minit (BAM).
March Magnets Title Fight: ABM vs BAM
Welcome back to another installment of Button University Lessons! In Lesson 8, we showed you some quick videos and outlined step-by-step button making guidelines, reconfirming the simplicity and speed of our machines. Today, we are going to talk a little bit about fabric covered buttons.
Our Fabric Button Machine allows you to make your own fabric buttons or ponytail holders! In fact, Using our large eyelet two-piece button sets, fabric covered buttons can be attached to shoe laces, flip flops, shoe charms, hair ties & more!
There are a couple of machines that we have that will cater to whatever needs you have. Here are the details on those machines.
Custom monogrammed buttons are growing in popularity and it’s easier than ever for embroidery shops and monogrammed gift businesses to get in on the action.
Fabric buttons are extremely versatile, but most manufacturers do not offer any options for their customers. Thus, your embroidery business or monogrammed gift shop has a solid chance to capitalize on the opportunity. With inexpensive supplies and a quick, easy process, the high profit margins custom monogrammed buttons offer is an excellent way for a business to expand.
Magnets are great, and they are great for a variety of reasons:
- They are fun and functional.
- They can be great memory keepsakes.
- They are easy to make.
- They are inexpensive mementos.
- They are typically rich with extraordinarily large net worths.
Oops…I seem to have mixed up magnet with magnate.
But those two words are not as unrelated as you might think. Check out the Wikipedia definition of a magnate:
Magnate, from the Late Latin magnas, a great man, itself from Latin magnus ‘great’, designates a noble or other man in a high social position, by birth, wealth or other qualities.
Hmm, so a magnate is somebody great. Then that must mean that a magnet is something great! Do you follow my etymylogical reasoning here? No? Okay, good…because there is no etymylogical reasoning going on. This is just my long and drawn out way of saying what I already said in the first line of this post: magnets are great!
So, with that being said, the next question you must ask yourself is which type of magnet is greater for the purposes of whatever project you are working on. And that is why today we are going to break down the differences between two very distinct types of magnets:
- Peel and stick magnets
- Ceramic magnets
