Hi Button Guy,
I recently purchased a Flex 2000 Kit. Made some buttons, and all works great. I have a question about the mylar inserts. Is there such thing as multiple finishes, such as matte or gloss? Seems like I can only find information on using the standard glossy mylar.
There are a few more options you could try to make the buttons you desire without using the standard glossy mylar.
- You could laminate your button designs before cutting the papers. Use a thin laminate such as 1mm or 2mm.
- You could use a thick paper like card stock and not use the mylar at all.
- You could put a matte tape over the design before cutting the papers. This might be the cheapest and easiest way to do it, but it could also be the weakest and the tape could tear or rip.
For information on printing on Dura-lar, check out my post last week
