Button Maker Guide

The Claremont Colleges Library owns two button presses for making 1" or 2.25" pins and/or magnets. This guide demonstrates how to use the button makers.

Thanks for your interest in the library's button makers!


  • We provide enough supplies to make about 50 buttons.

  • The button makers can be reserved for up to three days at a time.

  • Each user may check out a button maker and supply kit twice per academic year. Users are welcome to borrow the button makers additional times if they provide their own supplies.

  • Please allow up to two business days to process your button maker request.
