You'll find specific videos for each machine type on this page. However, before you start watching, let's review three essential tips to ensure your button-making experience is a success.
Three Critical Things to Know Before Getting Started
1) Mylar (Plastic Film) Usage:Mylar is incredibly thin, so it's easy to use more than one layer accidentally. Run your thumb over the mylar surface while holding it to avoid this. Sometimes, it may appear as though you only have one layer when, in fact, there are multiple. We've included an introductory video at the bottom of this page to demonstrate how mylar can affect the machine's mechanism and the button-making process.
2) Not Pressing the Handle With Enough Force When Connecting The Front and The Back:The second most common failure reason is not pressing the handle with enough force when at the final step of button-making. Unlike the first step, where you press the metal cover, picture, and mylar (image on the left, 2nd step on the operating manual), while you press the back of the button, you need to be sure that the molds are stuck each other and fully closed as shown on the image on the right. You can see how the distance between the handle and the body differs between the two steps.
3) Putting The Wrong Face - The Back Side of The Pin:Some users inadvertently place the wrong face of the pin onto the machine, resulting in unsuccessful button-making attempts. We've provided a clear picture of the correct pin face below.
By following these essential tips and watching our instructional videos, you'll be on your way to creating fantastic pin-back buttons, bottle openers, fridge magnets, and keychains with your Nice2Have Button Maker Machine. Happy crafting!
