Making Metallic Silver & Gold Buttons with Dura-Lar April 26 2017

We're really excited about making metallic gold and silver buttons with Dura-Lar!!

Using Dura-Lar Film is the easiest way to make Do-It-Yourself buttons that look lavish and luxurious.

In this video, Dura-Lar is used with Gold and Silver Reversible Metallic Dura-Lar to make gorgeous, shiny, pinback buttons that are great for holidays and special occasions. Check it out!

 

 

The SILVER & GOLD DURA-LAR used in this video is reversible, with gold on one side and silver on the other. The Metallic Dura-Lar Foil is 2mm thick, comes in standard 8.5 x 11" sheets, and has an EXTREMELY reflective mirror-like finish. Doesn't that sound awesome for a button??!

**When making Dura-Lar Buttons, it is the Glossy or Matte Dura-Lar that goes through the printer, and NOT the metallic Dura-Lar! The metallic Dura-Lar foil goes behind the transparent Dura-Lar film. **

Keychains 101 - Part 2: Types of Keychains July 22 2016

INTRODUCTION: WHAT TYPES OF KEYCHAINS DO WE CARRY?

In Keychains 101 - Part 1, we talked about the difference between versa back and slot back keychains. Now we're ready for the fun stuff!

Kaychains, Keychain Parts, Standard Button Making Parts and Supplies, Button Keychains,

We carry 8 different types of keychain closures, all of which are in the image above.

The Mini Split-Ring Keychain can be used with a Jump Ring, or a Plastic Tab. They are available for keychains made with 1", 1-1/4" and 1-1/2" button parts. It's basically just a wee little version of the standard Split-Ring Keychain.

The Split-Ring Keychain is super versatile and can be used with any size button keychain. The smaller button sizes often use a Mini-Split Ring because it's more proportional to the smaller button parts. Button Keychains that are 1-3/4", 2-1/4", 2-1/2", 3" and 3-1/2" in size use the Split-Ring along with a Tab and Slot Back.

The Zipper Pull is meant to be worn on a zipper, but can be used like a keychain, too. Zipper Pulls are most often used with a 1", 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" button and versa back.

The Loop Keychain is one of the fancier styles, but it's also really practical. Available for 1", 1-1/4", and 1-1/2" buttons, the Loop can be used with just a Versa Back (pictured above), or with a jump ring.

The Pull-Apart Keychain is unique because the part that attaches to the keys can be removed from the rest of the keychain with nothing more than a click :) Contact us at info@peoplepowerpress.org or give us a call at 1-866-996-1984 for details.

The C-Hook Keychain has a carabiner style closure, is super secure, and is another keychain style that allows you to add and remove your keys with ease. Available for 1", 1-1/4" and 1-1/2" button keychains.

The Snap Hook Keychain closes with a hinged snap hook (sort of like those airtight swing top jars). This type of keychian is available for 1", 1-1/4", and 1-1/2" buttons and is used with a versa back. The Snap Hook is also compatible with 2" round buttons, as well as 2-1/2" X 3-1/2" rectangular buttons when used with Welded Up Eyes.

The Snake Keychain is essentially the same as a Snap Hook Keychain, but for use with larger buttons ranging in size from 1-3/4", 2-1/4", 2-1/2", 3", and 3-1/2". The Snake keychian is attached to a Slotted Back with a "Tab".

Last, but certainly not least, is The Link Keychain. This style has a really classic keychain look, and is comprised of a Split Ring on the end of a metal chain. For button keychains 1", 1-1/4", and 1-1/2" in size, the Link Keychain can be attached to a versa back with a jump ring. If you're using button parts 1-3/4", 2-1/4", 2-1/2", 3", or 3-1/2" in size, it attaches to a slot back via a Tab.

 

Hope that this post about the types of keychains that we offer was helpful :)

If you have any questions about the products you read about here or any products available on peoplepowerpress.org, feel free to give us a call at 1 (866) 996-1984 or email us at info@peoplepowerpress.org

Dura-Lar: Mylar's Fancy Cousin April 20 2016

If you make your own buttons, you probably know that mylar is an important part of the button making process.

Did you know that there's an alternative to Mylar that can add a little pizazz to a traditional pinback? This magical material is called Dura-Lar and you should TOTALLY give it a try :)

Dura-Lar is a Mylar substitute that you can print onto directly. The finished products vary depending on how you chose to use the Dura-Lar, but in this case, it was used to produce stunning, super shiny buttons! Dura-Lar can be printed on in almost any laser printer.

All of the colours you see are printed directly onto the Dura-Lar, and the metallic silver, is actually just the shell of the button. 

If you prefer neon or pastel colours over a metallic finish, we have a great selection of pre-cut paper circles. When used underneath Dura-Lar the colours really pop!

Are sparkles more your thing? Check out THESE little guys made with Dura-Lar and gift wrap. they are sure to add a little glimmer to your day!
