A benefit to the Snap Press is that you get a more uniform and professional appearance. The Snap pliers are great because they are easy to travel with since they are so small.

Pliers are more affordable and the dies don't have to be changed for sockets vs. studs... Presses result in more uniform and professional appearance and you can add snaps further from the edge than pliers.

With pliers, they come at a lower cost so you can spend more money on the snaps themselves!

The press requires less pressure to apply the snaps. Great if you have joint problems or carpal tunnel. The pliers are economical and travel easily. ananda473 at hotmail dot com

The pliers are more affordable and better for starting out without investing too much! The press would allow for faster attachment of your snaps though!

With a press, you don't have to scrunch fabric to snap!!

Pliers are compatible with different brands of plastic snaps and the press allows you to have more clearance to snap through bulkier fabrics.

The press can be converted into a foot press (How cool is that!) but the pliers take up less storage space in a small sewing room!

The advantage of the press vs pliers is that the press can be converted to be operated by a foot pedal. That would save people like me with a bad hand some aches and pains.

For the pliers there are written and video instructions that are linked directly to the Kamsnaps site (and they're very useful too - personal experience).

1. Benefit of press over pliers - the press is built to last at least a lifetime, while the pliers suffer from ware and tare more quickly.
2. Benefit of pliers over the press - the pliers are portable and can be used on big projects that can't be moved.

One benefit to the press is that you have more snapping options--polyresin snaps, metal snaps, grommets. You can only use polyresin snaps with the pliers

One benefit to the pliers is that they don't require as much arm or shoulder strength.

A benefit of the pliers is that you don't have to have as much shoulder/total arm strength as the press. A benefit of the press is the speed of application, especially if converted to a foot press.

with a press you get a more professional look of your snaps, and if you are doing more snaps, it can be made into a foot press.

and the pliers are more affordable and you can travel with them :)

Plier's extra dies are cheap for trying out different sizes. Press can be used also for metal snaps and grommets with appropriate dies.

The press, strong and robust, enables us to work very fast. I have a small workshop and I need speed, very speed.
My husband squeezes the press, and I place the fabric and snaps.
We're a good team, the work is professional.
And the pliers are very comfortable for a small job, a particular house.

Press VS Pliers - The Press is built to last a lifetime. Pliers are sturdy but it's unknown how long they will last.

Pliers VS Press- Pliers extra dies are inexpensive and allow you to try out different size snaps for less.

Ashley & Michael said...

benefit to pliers is they are portable so they can be used to apply snaps to large items which cannot be moved.

benefit to press is that it offers a greater amount of clearance for your fabric so that you can attach snaps farther away from the edge. The press also provides a wider clearance for thicker/bulkier materials.

Misty said...

The benefit of the press is you can turn it into a foot press, so you can work out your legs when your arms/hands get tired!

The benefit of pliers is it doesn't take up much room, so if you have a small working area, this is the best!
