Where can I make buttons? Can I reserve a button maker?


There are button makers in the Walter Library BreakerSpace and Magrath Library that can be used by UMN students, staff, faculty, departments and student organizations.

  • Buttons are sized 1 ¾ inches. Here is just one site which has templates which might be useful if you are making an image.
  • We provide the round button maker, circle cutters, instructions, and enough supplies to make approximately 100 buttons (let us know if you need more).
  • Button makers can be checked out for up to 2 days (exceptions may be granted).
  • Magazines and book covers can be provided upon request.
  • Users can opt to pick up the button maker at Walter (East bank) or Magrath Library (St. Paul) or use in the Library.

Reserve the button maker by filling out this request form. You will receive a confirmation within two business days.

There is another button maker in the Health Sciences Library Makerspace, first come, first served. 

If you want to make a few buttons, you can help yourself in the Walter Library Breakerspace (in the Toaster).
