Plastic Snaps for Charities

We're big supporters of charities (partly because our little family is heavily involved with animal rescue)!  We offer a program through which qualified charities can purchase snaps at a significant discount, and people can donate snaps to a charity of their choice.

Our newest approved charity is Cloth for a Cause. Cloth for a Cause is a Canadian organization that takes in donated cloth diapers, fixes and cleans them, then loans them out to families who want to cloth diaper but can't afford the start-up costs.  Visit their website to learn how you can help.

To donate snaps, visit:

Vendors & WAHMs: Help Us Celebrate 5,000 Facebook Fans

We are nearing a whopping 5,000 "likes" on Facebook!  Once we reach 5,000, we're going to celebrate by holding a giveaway which will include an $80 KAM professional table-top snap press.  We'd also like to invite any other vendors or WAHMs to join us!

If you have a product you are willing to give away to a lucky winner, please send us an email at  Please include:
  • a photo of the product you're giving away or if you're giving away a discount code, any product photo that you'd like us to share
  • the name of the item you're giving away
  • a link to your Facebook page and online store if you have one
  • a quick description of the kind of items you make/sell (ie. diapers, bibs, soap, etc).
We will include all of that information in the giveaway (as well as in a blog post and our newsletter), which will provide you with a bit of extra marketing exposure.
The product does *not* have to be snap-related and there isn't any hard deadline to contact us other than once the giveaway starts, which probably will not be until Nov at the earliest.

We do ask that you be willing to cover US shipping of your product.  Alternatively, instead of offering a product directly, you can also offer a discount code for a certain amount off (minimum $10) to apply towards a product or purchase and the winner will be responsible for paying anything in excess of that.

For the giveaway, we'll pick a different winner for each prize.

So far, the following skilled crafters have signed up to participate in our upcoming 5,000 FB likes giveaway:

KAM Heart Snaps in 7 New Colors

We have heart-shaped KAM resin snaps in 7 sweet new colors: B40 pumpkin, B44 apple green, B46 teal, BG Dazzle, BG Mirror, BG Sassy, and BG Twilight.  Check out all our colors at

November Holidays

This is just a heads-up to expect the following shipping delays in November 2012:

Monday, Nov 12 - Veteran's Day.  We'll be working as usual at but the post office will be closed so no mail will be picked up or delivered.

Thursday, Nov 15 - Saturday, Nov 17.  Our little family will be out of town so no packages will be shipped these days.  Shipping will resume the following Monday, Nov 19.  We will still try to check emails but there may be a slight delay in our response time compared to what you might be used to with us.  We apologize for any inconvenience & thank you for your patience!

Thursday, Nov 22 - Thanksgiving.  Again, we'll be working as usual but the post office will be closed.

Please note that Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) usually marks the start of increased shopping nationwide as people begin their Christmas shopping.  That means the post office will have a higher volume of packages and may not be able to process shipments as quickly as usual.  So from Black Friday, Nov 23 through Christmas, Dec 25, please allow extra time for deliveries and order early if you're in a rush :)

Size 24 KAM Plastic Snaps in B22 Ivory Back in Stock

Size 24 KAM plastic snaps are very heavy duty.  They are large (the caps are about 15mm in diameter) and have a very strong grip (stronger than most metal snaps of the same size).  Size 24 KAM snaps would be appropriate for upholstery, boat tarps, coats, tote bags, and any other application that needs to withstand a lot of pressure. The grip is probably too strong for small children to easily un-snap.

We have restocked one of the more popular colors, B22 Ivory.  For a complete list of available colors in this size and to purchase, visit

 A complete set consists of all 4 parts (size 24 shown):

Patented Wide-Base KAM Pacifier Clips in Black & Clear Now Available

Available for purchase at

These patented, lightweight yet sturdy plastic clips can be used to make ribbon pacifier holders. They have passed certification testing for lead and other harmful substances. These clips have a locking mechanism which makes it difficult for children to remove. See below for photo instructions.

These clips are very similar to our original pacifier clips, but have 2 primary differences. 1) The base is wider. 2) The ring through which the ribbon loops is more secure and less likely to be dislodged by prying hands.  Full comparison pictures shown below.

NOTE: While these clips do comply with regulations regarding harmful substances, please remember that they are comprised of parts small enough to pose a choking hazard and should always be used under adult supervision.
