There is still some time to take advantage of our August Deal of the Month, which is 20% off all engraved snaps except Ooga Booga with coupon 20%offengraved.
Here's a preview of September's Deal of the Month:
Size 16 snaps are smaller than size 20 and are more commonly used for thinner material such as baby/toddler clothing and pacifier clip holder ribbons. Size 16 caps can be mixed with size 20 sockets/studs, which is what I do most often. My material tends to be on the thin side, like 2 layers of cotton, so the shorter prongs on the size 16 caps are more appropriate. However, I prefer the firmer grip and larger size of the size 20 sockets/studs. If you've never used size 16 snaps before, September would be a time to try them out!
Bonus: If this post is shared by at least 100 different people on Facebook by the time the sale begins on September 1, we'll increase the discount to 20%! To easily share this post, just click on the "Like" button below and then "Post to Facebook."
Most diapers use size 20 plastic/polyresin snaps. Grovia diapers are one of the exceptions we have found. As of our testing in August 2012 of their AIO, the diapers use size 20 caps with size 22 sockets and studs. Our size 22 KAM sockets and studs and size 20 caps are compatible with the snaps on Grovia diapers, so if you have a snap you need to repair, you can do so easily with your table-top professional snap press or your portable handheld pliers.
Please note, the above only applies to the snaps found on the actual shell--not on the inserts.The inserts use a different brand of snaps that are not compatible with any of our current KAM snaps.
Our KAM plastic snaps can be used in place of velcro as the closure on cloth diapers. In fact, KAM is a renowned name in the snap world and most commercial brands of diapers use KAM for their snaps.
If your diapers have velcro on them and the velcro is getting old and yucky, or your child has figured out how to undo it, you can convert the diaper to snaps using our table-top professional KAM snap press or our more affordable portable snap pliers for plastic snaps.
We have extensive step-by-step instructions in both written and video format to guide you through the process here. We even have a snap placement template you can print out and use. Thousands of mamas have converted their bumGenius, gDiaper, Thirsty Duo and other diapers to snaps and have even added snaps to their prefolds. You can also add a 2nd row of snaps if your diaper currently only has 1 row to increase the fit adjustment.
For lots more uses for your KAM snaps, visit our 101 Uses for KAM Snaps page. Want to share your snap project with us? We'd love to see it! You can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or post it directly on our Facebook page.
Enter to win a $20 KAMsnaps.com certificate. Encourage your friends to enter as well, because if they win, you'll win a $10 certificate as well. Open worldwide, no purchase necessary. Ends Aug 26, 2012. Enter here. Good luck!
