New Heart-Shaped KAM Plastic Snaps

We now have 24 colors in heart-shaped snaps, while supplies last.  Available by the heart caps only or in complete sets at http://www.kamsnaps.com/Heart-Snaps-p118.html.

Heart caps use the same die as size 20 round caps. Heart caps can be used with various size sockets and studs. They are most commonly used with size 20 sockets and studs, but you can also use them with size 16/14 or size 22 sockets and studs. 


New Star-Shaped KAM Plastic Snap Buttons

We've just added a bunch of new colors in star-shaped snaps.  Available by the star caps only or in complete sets at http://www.kamsnaps.com/Star-Snaps-p320.html.

Star caps are slightly larger than size 20 round caps, so you will need a star cap die for your pliers. For presses, some people have been able to squeeze the star into the same die as the round size 20 cap, but we cannot guarantee this will work for you so please consider purchasing a star cap die for your press.  Dies are available here.
Star caps can be used with various size sockets and studs. They are most commonly used with size 20 sockets and studs, but you can also use them with size 16/14 or size 22 sockets and studs.

Size 20 Long Prong KAM Plastic Snaps Newly Stocked

We have just stocked several colors in size 20 long-prong plastic snaps, including a few bumGenius colors here.

Limited availability. Except for white and black, availability of size 20 long-prong snap colors will vary as new colors are added and older colors sell out. Please consider stocking up if you see a color you like as it may not be available again for some time after the current stock sells out.

By definition, long prong refers only to caps (the only pieces with a prong). Sockets and studs are the same regardless of the length of the caps.

Standard size 20 cap prongs are 5.6mm in length and are sufficient for most projects, including most diapers.  Long size 20 cap prongs are 6.2mm in length and should only be used on very thick material, such as chinese prefold diapers.  If you attempt to use caps which are too long for your project, then your snaps won't close properly.

KAMsnaps Mark-Down Monday Special to Benefit Gracie's Gowns

 
What better way to continue to celebrate the season of giving than to honor a small non-profit with a big heart?  Gracie's Gowns is run by fewer than a handful of caring individuals who donate their time, their skills, and often their financial resources to making fun hospital gowns for children with cancer or other terminal illnesses.  The gowns are gifts that bring smiles to these children's faces, and those smiles in turn are gifts to all who love them.

28.5% of proceeds from the sale of this product will be credited to Gracie's Gowns account with us so that they can purchase the snap supplies they need to more easily and quickly create these special gowns.

Today only, 300 select engraved cap pieces are just $3.50.  Normally $9, that's over 60% off.  You choose 3 designs/colors, for a total of 100 pieces per design/color.  Available at: http://www.kamsnaps.com/Plastic-Snaps/Engraved-Snaps/Charity-Mark-Down-Monday-300-Engraved-Cap-Pieces-p350.html

Free KAM Snap Pliers for Your WAHM/Small Business

 

We love supporting small businesses in our personal lives.  We are after all a small family business ourselves.  So we are offering a free set of KAM snap pliers to 1 lucky WAHM/small business who would benefit from the addition of snaps to their commercial products.

Here are the rules:
  • The business must *not* already own a press or pliers for plastic snaps and must *not* already be using plastic snaps on any of their products.  If you already use plastic snaps (as a business or individual), you don't qualify for the free pliers but we've got a special referral gift by sharing this post with a qualifying business--see below.
  • The business must have a Facebook page with at least 50 "likes."
  • If you are selected for the free pliers, you must purchase at least $15 of plastic snaps from KAMsnaps.com within 7 days.  We will send the pliers along with your snap order.
  • If you are selected for the free pliers, you must list a finished product with the plastic snaps within 30 days and share the link with us.
  • Once you've shared your finished product with us, we will share it on our Facebook wall so everybody can admire your work and to provide you with some extra exposure. We will also select another small business to benefit from this offer.  So the sooner you finish, the sooner somebody else will benefit--but no pressure!
  •  Referral gift: If you are already using plastic snaps, whether as a business or individual, you don't qualify for the free pliers but you can earn a $10 discount by sharing this offer with any business you think might benefit.  If that business lists you as their referral, you'll get $10 off KAMsnaps.com once they share their finished snap product with us.  (Referrer can't be in the same household as the qualifying business.)
 How to participate:
  • If you are a qualifying business, leave a comment to this blog post with the following info:
                 - link to your FB page
                 - description of how you would incorporate plastic snaps into your product(s)
                 - the name of the person who told you about this offer, if any
  • This is not a requirement, but you are also welcome to provide the above information as a comment to this FB post for added exposure.  However, we will select only among the comments to this blog post.
  •  Once we feel we have "enough" comments, we will choose the lucky business. 

This is something new we are offering but hope to continue for some time.  As such, rules/requirements may change as needed.

Update 11/30/2012:  We have selected the first of the recipients to receive free pliers!  Once they've completed their project using KAM snaps, we will select the next recipients.  Thank you to everybody who has signed up!

Update 12/5/2012: Pink Diesel Designs has posted their snap project!  They've used round snaps for the closures on the back of their doll dress and heart snaps as embellishments in the front.

A new recipient to receive free pliers has been selected!
