Customers often ask me to explain the difference between our button machines and the inexpensive hand press and bench press systems offered by Badge-A-Minit and I will tell them there are two major differences; the speed at which you can make buttons and the quality of the buttons each machine makes.
While some customers are willing to accept a slower machine to begin with, I can't help but wonder how it would affect their decision if they could see for themselves the difference in the quality.
In the photograph above, the button made with the Badge-A-Minit hand press is on the left, while the button made with our Model 225 button machine is on the right.
The red lines in the photo point out one of the biggest complaints people have with buttons made using the inexpensive BAM machines. Notice the "bumps" on the side of the button. The button is "out of round" and does not have the look or feel of a professional quality button.
Now look at the button made with our Model 225. Notice how perfectly round and smooth its edges are!
Now take a look at the photograph below. It shows the back side of both buttons.
Again the Badge-A-Minit 2-1/4" is on the left, while the button made with the Model 225 is on the right.
Notice if you will that Badge-A-Minit's name and telephone number are stamped on the back of their button parts (another frequent complaint, especially from those who are trying to start their own business).
Notice, if you will, that the back of our button has nothing stamped on it (but there's plenty of room to place the FREE stickers we to provide customers who ask for them. Stickers that allow you put YOUR information on the back of the buttons you make).
The reason I wante to point out these differences is to assist you in making an informed decision.
If you are a kindergarten teacher, who is on a tight budget and you are only looking to make a few buttons for your students, the Badge A Minit handpress would probably serve your needs.
But if you are going to be making buttons as a fundraiser or selling them to customers who will expect better quality, you really should purchase the better button machine.
