Bulldog Clip Button Parts
The bulldog clip set includes
- Mylar plastic covers (thickness .003 mm)
- Fronts (shells)
- Backs with bull dog clip attached
Making a custom bulldog clip button is easy. Make the button as you would any pinback type button. You may need to clip a thin object like a penny before inserting the metal back into the machine. If your button machine has a shallow crimp die an open bulldog clip can cause the button to be malformed by the machine. Also the bulldog clip on the back can swivel making it possible to attach to a lanyard or a necklace.
How to use
The manufacturer recommended paper weight for best results is 20# - 24#. However 20# - 32# paper stock thickness is usually acceptable.
Photo paper is usually too thick to make buttons with for most people. We have had customers tell us they successfully used thick paper like photo paper but it is tricky and more time consuming. To make it possible, the circle you cut needs to be a little smaller in diameter than the mylar for the button size you are making. This makes it easier for the plastic mylar to wrap around the edge of the button and not get stuck in the machine's dies.
