Hey there...found you on google and hoping you can help me out a bit.
I'm preparing to make some pinback buttons for some music shows and events I'm putting on, and I've been researching button machine products online. Most of the button machines I've found are similar to ones at the site linked to in the preceding sentence.
Do you have any recommendations for the best places to buy button machines, and which brands are the best?
Thank you very much.
Crap, tried to leave the link with tags so it would look prettier. Here is the site I am talking about:

Sometimes tutorials make things seem easier than they really are, not in this case. Watched this video when i got my button maker and it IS that easy. :)

Hello! Very helpful tutorial. BigDMusic: Check out ButtonBoy
We two of their machines, 1" and 1 1/4" and love them. We've had
the 1" for over two years and it seems to even work just as good or
better with age. They are incredibly durable and easy to use.
Pretty affordable, and some come with a paper punch and parts.
Enjoy and happy buttoning.
