Product Overview


The 3 size is a very popular size, and you can make pinback buttons, cosmetic mirrors and magnets with this machine. This size of button is perfect for custom photo items which are very popular around holidays. These are also great for anyone working with schools or sports teams.

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 #BB300 and Button Boy Photo Graphic Punch Model #BB3173.

This machine is different as it works with our custom Tecre Punch to deliver you perfect photo buttons every time. (But can also be used for normal paper buttons as well).
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 3.173. (A standard size punch cuts to 3.451”). The Model BB300 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 which shows the die of the new Photo BB#300 on the left and the standard #300 on the right.

The model BB300 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 3.451” would wrap around to the back of the button like a standard machine’s buttons would.

However, any image cut with the BB#3173 graphic punch can only be used on the BB300 button machine.

Standard size 3” 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!
