Default 1" Flat Back Buttons on Bows Question-need opinion please

I just got my 1" button machine and I am loving it. For those of you that use flat back buttons on your bows do you prefer plastic backs or metal backs? The machine came with plastic backs, but I was wondering if I need to order some metal ones.

Thanks!

The ones i always buy are plastic back and i like them, So im fine with it. The only time my centers have a metal back is if i make fabric covered buttons myself.

Mine are all metal, so I'm not sure about plastic? I'm sure they work pretty much the same.

All of mine have had plastic and I have been fine as well. I haven't had one with metal, so have no basis for comparison.

I have seen both but haven't used many. Does one stay better on the bows or work better with various glues?

Mine have all been plastic backed and I use regular high-temp hot glue and they stay really well. I use them on bows, badge reels, clippies - and I have never had a problem with them falling off.

Plastic here, never seen the metal. Haven't had any problems with them. I use the high temp glue gun as well. You're going to be so addicted to that button machine, my friend is. I think she makes buttons in her sleep!!

What kind of machine is it? I was trying to tell from the posts on here but am not positive. Isn't it fun to get a new gizmo to help you make things???
