You have questions and we have answers. One of the most commonly asked questions we get revolves around the different types of button machines and supplies & whether or not they are interchangeable. Basically, you’ll find three kinds of button machines: Industry standard, proprietary and those made outside the USA.
Industry standard button supplies fit 99.9% of all standard-sized button machines. These parts are designed to be used with American made button machines and probably will not fit a foreign made machine and most definitely will not fit a Badge a Minit machine. What does this mean to you if you have an industry standard machine? Well, it means you can purchase supplies from any company that sells industry standard sizes. American Button Machines stocks the widest variety of industry standard button supplies & accessories and we are constantly on the search for new, innovative products.

Hey Button Makers. We occasionally have callers who ask how to change the blade on their Adjustable Circle Cutter. It’s actually very simple, but we’ve put together this step-by-step tutorial to guide you through the process. You will need a small, flat-head screwdriver and a pair of needle nosed pliers. If you organize anything like me, the screwdriver is in the drawer to the left of the fridge and the pliers are in the garage. We’ll wait while you look for them….

Last week we began our month long series on March Magnets and focused on our super-strong Ceramic Magnets.
This week we are focusing on customer inquiries and here is one from the frequent flier file. How can I wear a button without putting a hole in my shirt? Or, sweater or coat or, well you get the idea. The answer is… drum roll please… Mag Tags. Never heard of them? Well then, you’re in for a treat.

Here at ABM Headquarters, we love the month of March. Not only because winter is almost over but because it also signifies the start of March Madness, the annual NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
Every year we like to do our own hat tip to the tournament and begin our own March Magnets! This year we are doing a blog series on the different types of button making magnets we offer and how you can use them.
