The lowest price I found is on http://www.buttonboyinc.com/
and they gr10 exapt the want the paymant with western-union and you can't pay with paypal or credit card, but it worth it, you can buy some of the things on ebay, so maybe you can pay there with paypal.

I don't know for sure but i red here once "badgeaminit" put their logo on the badge's back.

ButtonMakers are gr10 but they owfell in counting , they sent me twice less parts than I order, first time 1000 were missing and the second 2000 part less  Angry
and you can only count the mylers, not the other parts you get.
but my friend order from them and very happy with them, he got more than he order (but not that parts i needed). Undecided

Hello,

I have a Model 100 that I bought off ebay a few years back.  I became very frustrated with it at the time and set it aside.  Now, I'm ready to tackle it again.  I need help though and I didn't see this question really answered within this thread.

I am having problems with the mylar attaching to the button frame.  It pouches in random spots.  On some buttons, I can literally peel the mylar off with ease.  I have experimented using different amounts of force when pressing the buttons with no real results.  The buttons just do not look smooth.

Any suggestions?

It sound like you used thick paper, you can use only 80-90 gram papers.
hope I was helpful   Smiley

Thanks for your comment.  Its not the paper though, as I have been using magazine paper that is definitely less than 80-90 gram.  I'm really at a loss here.

I gave my brother an "Amazing Button Maker" for christmas 2 years ago. It was a toy one, but works just fine. It was a cheaper alternative (about $15) to the hundreds of dollars for a button press.

don't know if this was answered already, i'm gonna go through and read all the posts later tonight, but has anyone bought one of those interchangeable button makers? i was looking at this one originally:

http://www.buybuttonparts.com/shop/3in1-big-bench-press-button-maker-system-combo-p-56.html

but now that i'm reading all the not so savory reviews about badge a minit here maybe i'll go with something else... thanks for the input!

If it's not the paper, you might just want to send the machine back to Tecre for an adjustment. Since it's after 30 days, you might have to pay (and you'll definitely have to pay for shipping) but they'll totally fix your machine for you. You could give them a call to see if they can walk you though adjusting it yourself also. The number is 1-800-394-9168.

We count all of our parts by weight. Sometimes, on the really light stuff, the counts are off. We try to always throw in extra to make up for this though.

If you were 1,000 off, then it was a human mistake. Like someone forgot to put an entire bag in the box or something like that. We NEVER intentionally stiff our customers and we bend over backwards to fix mistakes. If you're missing something from your order just let us know and we'll send out replacements. We've never just left anyone hanging like that.

We're really are nice kids, and we love all of our customers. Smiley

Every year the on-line stores change prices, and there is a lot of competition I guess
So , for now I found few w/ lowest prices for badge parts...it's depend on which size you need:

For 1" - http://buttonboyinc.com/
For 2.25" - http://www.badgeparts.com/
http://www.tecre.com/index.iml
http://www.americanbuttonmachines.com/
