2-1/4" Button Boy/Tecre Brand PHOTO & Paper Punch, Machine and 250 parts (enough to make 250 buttons).
We are pleased to announce a brand new machine and graphic punch that we designed and was manufactured by Tecre only for us.
It is the Button Boy Photo Button Machine Model #BB225 and Button Boy Photo Graphic Punch Model #BB2405.
This machine is different as it works with our custom Tecre Punch to deliver you perfect photo buttons every time. You can also make buttons with heavy cardstock or even just normal thickness paper with this machine.
On a standard button machine, your photo must wrap around the back of the button, and if it is printed on thick paper, you tend to have issues with buckling of the mylar on the edges. How does this new system work? The specialty size graphic punch cuts the paper to a diameter of 2.405. (A standard size punch cuts to 2.625”). The Model BB225 has an extra lip on the die that the smaller graphic fits into, as well as a lip for a normal graphic size and/or the mylar. When you make your button, the paper goes all the way to the very edge of your button, but does not get wrapped around with the mylar. It’s a perfect fit, and you will not see the silver edge of the button.
See the 2nd photo above which shows the die of the new Photo BB#225 on the left and the standard #225 on the right.
The model BB225 can also be used with a standard size graphic punch, as the graphic would sit in the upper lip of the die with the mylar. Images cut to 2.625” would wrap around to the back of the button like a standard machine’s buttons would.
However, any image cut with the BB#2405 graphic punch can only be used on the BB225 button machine.
Standard size 2-1/4” parts will work with this machine. BAM sized parts will NOT work with this machine.
Works with heavy card stock, photo paper, and standard thickness paper. We even tested a heavy cardstock covered with glitter and it worked perfectly!
