Default Re: Want to buy a button cover machine-What to look for?

You're definitely not a pest! It just took me a while to figure out how to print some test images (graciously provided by creativ and Amanda357).

Button is 1 1/8" (since that's what I grabbed). I used whatever paper is in the town library printer. Edges aren't as smooth as a true graphic button, but it's pretty close.

So... button machines:
1. Make cover buttons
2. Set grommets (#00 - #15)
3. Set metal snaps (#20 and #24)
4. Set ventilators
5. Make graphic buttons?? Seriously, what do you think? Is it good enough?
