|Finished pin-back buttons|
I'm addicted to making pin-back buttons - I've made 1000's and 1000's so far. It's a hobby that involves an initial financial investment to buy the machine and parts, but it's well worth every penny.
These birds are original hand-drawn illustrations. This JPG file includes 20 different 1" circle designs, 48 circles total.
PAPER: A thin paper is best to avoid jamming the machine. I LOVE Epson's Presentation Paper Matte 27lb. It's light enough but has a fabulous colour rating. Images are bright and crisp.
