Common Uses

The most popular button size at "One of a Kind" and other unique/niche style shows.  Very popular for comic art and Japanese style drawings.

The 1-1/4" is the smallest sized button that you can buy pre-pinned backs for (pin is attached to a metal backing disc). You can still buy lock pin style button parts for this machine, but they are less popular, as they require more work.

There is no better badge press, pin maker or button press on the market for do it yourself buttons than the Tecre brand of button machine.


The Tecre #125 button maker is all metal construction (no plastic parts), makes a variety of different craft and promotional products (pin back buttons, ceramic and peel n stick magnets, tie tacks/lapel pins, zipper pulls and a variety of keychains) and has a 1yr warranty from the manufacturer.

Size: 10" x 3" x 6". Weight: approximately 6.5 lbs

Use with optional Graphic Punch Model #1629

Made in the U.S.A.


The Tecre #125 machines use Standard 1-1/4" Button Supplies.
