What type of button machine do I have?

Will your parts fit in my machine? It’s one of the most common questions we are asked.

People assume button parts are universal. They’re not.

There are “standard” button parts that fit in several different types of machines, but there are no universal button parts that fit in every machine.

We sell two different types of buttons on our website – standard parts and Badge-A-Minit parts. The latter fit in Badge-A-Minit Button Machines.

Common Mistakes When Buying Button Parts

There are two common mistakes made when buying button parts. The first mistake is not knowing what type of machine you have, and the second mistake is not knowing the size.

In this post, we’ll address the first problem.

Identifying Your Button Machine

This can be extremely difficult if you have an old machine. Many machines don’t have any identifiable markings – no manufacturer name, no model number, no nothing.

We are creating an online resource guide to help people identify their button machine. It will be called the Button Parts Compatibility Guide. There are currently 10 different machines listed, but we are adding more soon. We want to make this the most comprehensive database of button machines on the internet.

Our goal is to have background information on each button machine, and if we don’t sell button parts for a specific machine, we will tell you where to get them.

Do you have a machine that’s not listed? Please fill out the form at the bottom of our Button Parts Compatibility Guide.
