Getting Started

1 Choose Size


Size 20 or Size 16? Size 20 is the larger and most versatile size snap. It can handle thick and thin layers of fabric and is the most popular choice for nappies, sanitary products and bibs. Size 16 is popular for petite dolls clothing. It is smaller and suited to thinner layers of fabric.

2 Choose Tool


Professional Press Machine or Pliers. The snaps are very strong and need the force of a tool to apply them. In most cases we recommend the Press Machine as it's easy to operate and durable. The pliers are fine for quick fixes and small jobs, but for anything substantial we recommend the Professional Press Machine. In addition to the Press Machine, you'll need the die set that corresponds with the size snap you've chosen. If you'd like to use both size snaps, then just purchase both size dies - they can be used on the same Press Machine.

3 Purchase Kit


To make this easy, we have "Starter Kits" which will ensure you have everything you need to get started.You can always top up with extra snap colours (or sizes) later.
