My dh is a photogrpaher and we are branching out in things to offer and until I see what the demand for buttons would be I do not want to buy a machine< ia m looking for someone who makes them that can make me a deal.  The thing is ,t i is not the same design it would be a button for each child that requests one, so I could have 12 people or 100.  Every place I look online wants me to buy 2 of each person plus pay a $15 fee up front fee, per picture. Not gonna happen, I want to ffer the buttons for no more than $6  with me playing no more than $4  for them that is with shipping.  Anyone on here that does this that would like a shot at giving me a quote.  dh is a graphic artist too, so me getting the photos to you in a workable format eithr by mail or email will nto be an issue ahe can send it in a  circle in the exact dimensions.

Also, if anyone knows of someone who could offer cheap mousepads or mugs that would be great too, Right now I am going with Kinkos until I see what kind of demand I have for them.

What kind of buttons are you thinking about? 1, 1 1/2, 2 inch?
I dont think I understand what the buttons would be, either. Are you saying that each button picture would be of an individual kid?
You may want to see www.cafepress.com/. They can put your pictures/logos on items like mugs, shirts, journals, the like. Lots of internet sites use them instead of making the items themselves.

I am looking for 2.5 or 3 inch buttons and I have one pic of each kid I need as a buttona nd I am looking at $18  per button because everywhere I look they want a set up fee for each button.  I will check cafepress out, But am thinking I will buy a machine myself so now I would like feedback on what are good machines and what are bad.

My boyfriend got me a badge-a-minit machine for xmas. It does 1.25" buttons. I like it, myself. He uses it to make buttons for his band. They are really neat and easy to use. Well they seem complicated, but once you make about 30 they are easy lol.
