Free Sample Cap: GD Milk Chocolate


Purchasing a KAM color card is a quick and handy way to see all 60 basic KAM snap colors. However, the color cards don't include our ever-increasing line of custom colors. So every few weeks, we'll offer a free sample cap in one of our custom colors. Collect them all! You can even make your own color card by attaching each cap onto an index card or piece of cardboard, using a socket on the other side to hold it in place--just don't forget to label each color.

We will rotate the colors offered, so if you miss any, just wait until they come around again. Please note that supply is limited, so if we should run out after you've placed your order, we will substitute with another sample color.

Tell-a-Friend Special for Snap Pliers

We've set up a special link for the pliers kit for you to share with your friends and family. For a limited time, if they purchase a set of pliers and add snaps to the kit for $7.95, they will receive 200 MORE snaps than usual. That's double the snaps -- 400 complete sets (100 sets in any 4 colors) instead of the usual 200. In other words, they'll get the pliers plus 400 complete snap sets for just $34.95. That's a savings of over 60%!

And if your friends include your full name and email address in the specified box when they place their order, we'll give you a $5 gift certificate to our store as a thank-you. That's enough for 100 complete snap sets, or spend it on anything else you want. Tell as many friends as you want, and you'll earn a $5 gift certificate each time!

Referrer Rules:

- You cannot use yourself or a member of the same household as a referrer. In other words, if you're going to take advantage of the double-the-snaps offer yourself, you cannot list yourself as a referrer. Well, you can, you just won't get anything for it. :b

- The buyer must include your full name and email address with their order.

- Only 1 referral per buyer, and it must be the first time that buyer has purchased from us.

- If the buyer spends over $50, we'll send you a $10 gift certificate per our regular Referral Special instead of $5. Referral gift certificates coupons limited to $10 per order.

- The buyer must use the link below to purchase their pliers.

- Rules are subject to change without notice.


The double-the-snaps and Tell-a-Friend offer is valid only for the first 50 orders made through the following link:
http://www.kamsnaps.com/Pliers-for-Plastic-Snaps-SPECIAL-p150.html

Valid only on new orders and cannot be applied retroactively to orders already placed. This special offer cannot be accessed from our website--you must use the link above. Once 50 orders have been placed using the link, the link will no longer be accessible. Limit 1 using this link per order.

Please email any questions to sales (at) kamsnaps (dot) com.

New Size 16 Long Prongs

Here's a refresher on the measurements for each size of plastic snap:

Size Cap Diameter Standard Prong Length Long Prong Length
14 9.74mm
3.5mm
5.0mm
16 10.7mm
4.2mm 6.2mm (or 5.2mm if specified)
20 12.4mm
5.6mm 6.2mm
24 15mm
7.5mm n/a

Our size 16 regular caps have a prong length of 4.2mm. We previously offered long prong #16 caps with a 6.2mm length. For those who liked to use #16 snaps but found the regular too short and the long too long, we now carry long prongs in 5.2mm (so in the middle) in B3 white and B22 ivory. These are closer in length to the regular size 20 snaps.

You can purchase these from our Basic Snap page: http://www.kamsnaps.com/Basic-Snaps-p111.html. In the "Size" drop-down box, select "16 Long Prong." A color box will pop up. All prong lengths are 6.2mm unless otherwise specified as 5.2mm.

Note about New Dies for Pliers

This post pertains to pliers that have "GF" embossed on them only. They do not apply to our "HG" pliers, which is what we are currently selling. ("GF" pliers are no longer available in our store.)

When you are using these replacement plier dies in conjunction with the pliers that have "GF" embossed on them, the white rubber head is intended to be used only for size 14 regular snaps. They are too high and do not provide enough clearance for caps with taller prongs than the size 14 regular. You will need to continue to use your shorter, old-style black pressing head for other sizes. However, you can slice a bit off the top of the white rubber head to make it shorter if you would like to use it for other snap sizes.



Since the replacement cap dies are also taller, there will be less clearance for the cap and your fabric. If you've been using your "GF" pliers for a while, this smaller clearance may take some time getting used to.

If you're using long prong caps, then you'll need to go back to using the shorter, old-style cap die in order to have enough clearance.

F Burgundy & F Periwinkle to be Discontinued

These 2 colors were customized to match the Burgundy and Periwinkle PUL by Fabrite. They are available only in size 20 glossy.



We have less than 10 complete sets left of each. They will be discontinued once we're sold out, so if you are interested in either of these colors, please order them soon. You can order here: http://www.kamsnaps.com/Plastic-Snaps/Standard-amp-Long-Prong-Snaps/Basic-Snaps-p111.html. They will be shipped on a first come first served basis.

We will be introducing several new custom colors soon!
