Creating Custom Buttons and Make Money from Them
Have you planned to have a small home based business? There are so many individuals who are very much interested when it comes to making their own business. There are many options that you will surely find and a small choice could be to craft such custom buttons for family, friends or for a business.
Making custom buttons is definitely easy. You may have seen all the small pinback buttons which you could find in the local toy shop or perhaps the gum-ball machine. When you have seen how easy it is to create the buttons for yourself, then you will be amazed at the many varieties of colorful buttons that you can make.
If you plan to make custom buttons, you need to have that button making machine, the button blanks as well as good paper stock for the buttons. You need some things to begin with. The first things that you should have are the blanks. Button blanks are small metallic forms which may or may not have the pin backing. You have to know that there are buttons without a pin. This is done so that they can be attached to the clothing by simply using a magnet to be able to prevent poking a hole through those garments. Button blanks are used for holding the image which is fixed with the use of the button making machine.
Moreover, you should get a button making machine. There are a number of options that you could choose like manual and automatic. The simple hand-operated button machine can surely help the user to make a button in just two minutes and such would include the time in cutting the image template and also some semi-automated machines may help in speeding up this process and also make the user create 200-300 buttons each hour.
You must also get the right paper for the buttons too. The paper should be 24lb in weight. Aside from being very costly, the heavier weight paper is prone to jamming in those smaller button machines. When you would make a button, you won't have much benefit with the thicker paper. The lighter weight paper could become translucent and depending on the design then you could end up with some of the metallic backing becoming nearly visible through the paper. This is surely not the result that you desire to have. You must read the instructions carefully on the button machine because the choice of paper would rely on its recommendation. When you like to have this simple hobby, then you could actually buy a cheap equipment and make buttons for your friends.
