Ah yes, I improved so much this year
I bought mine on ebay for about $250, which included button parts! I should also mention my machine is a Tecre standard and only for 1.5” parts. It’s worked very well for me and none of my buttons ever fall apart. You can find them on eBay these days for about $200~ depending on the size you want your buttons to be.
If you can’t do eBay, there’s button biz and button boy inc! I’ve bought parts from button biz and their shipping is always free. I’ve never personally used button boy inc, but I know people who have, so I’m going to assume they’re also very safe to purchase from.
What I print usually depends on how well I think they’ll sell. Except I always happen to be wrong so I’m probably the worst person to ask sldfjsdf Like, if I have a new print, if I don’t like it much I’ll only make 3. If I like it, I make 5-8 to see how well they sell. If I know a print will sell well because it did in the past, I make 15 (although I almost always always always end up having to go to fedex office to make more at least 3 times during the con. At Fanime I made like 5 trips) I only do 15 because while it does do well at one con, it might not sell well at another and I can always use the leftovers for my storenvy.
As for a button maker, I think of it as extremely profitable. I have buttons in my store and I always make about $4-10 a week just sitting on my butt. At a con, buttons are what sells the most and I can make back the cost from the machine in just one con, and still make a profit in the same con or in other cons.

Hello friends, let’s do some magic called “My student loans’ grace period ends this month” commissions!
Now let’s get to the rules!
- Please keep it safe for work! Let me be perfectly honest: You really don’t want me to draw your porn or various kinks and fetishes.
- I predominantly draw humans! Animals, robots, and whatever else have you
(unless it’s from the Kirby series h-hahahaaaa)may not be perfect!
- Commissions are screen resolution only!
- Payment is PayPal only!
If you’re interested, please e-mail me at meakarts @ gmail.com with the subject “Commission Request.” Tumblr asks are a hit-and-miss since they tend to get eaten, so when in doubt, e-mail is the best way to get in contact with me!
Additional details may be found here. Thank you very much for your time, and even if you don’t commission me, passing this around will help.
Yo guys help my best friend out!!
Sorry I haven’t been drawing lately, I’ve been buried under personal issues and school sdkjfsdlkj. I’m hoping to get more button parts soon (finally) so I can restock my inventory + add more fandoms so stay tuned for more designs coming!
and a thing I owe my cousin, I hope you guys like it slkdjfds
Just so you guys know how these kind of people see things in terms of art theft. Except, they don’t ever credit the artist or anything. Not only that, but he had the nerve to tell me that being upset = “you’re crazy” and then he blocked me from messaging him.
If you ever see fanart being sold on eBay, it’s most likely stolen and you should report it as counterfeit items, as well as let the artist know about it. This guy’s ebay store is attached to the message so feel free to help me report him to eBay since he has other stuff with fanart on it for sale. His other stores include von_velodrome, monasstore11, ina_shoppu, dayuzislove, henry_xps, and “many others” or so this guy told me.
Feel free to spread this around so others know not to buy stuff on eBay that has fanart on it, or to spread awareness about this kind of issue.
omg thanks for letting me know sdkfjslfkj I reported them and sent them a message aaaaaaa
also publishing this ‘cause if anybody else finds someone selling my art, please let me know asap, thanks!
Hi guys, my family’s in a bit of a financial pinch so I’ve decided to start taking commissions. It’s my first time, so… I’m kinda really nervous! (I’m also a noob at pricing so I might change these later since I still don’t know if they’re good prices or not)
I made a special…
hey guys help out my bud please, thanks!!
