    Shop and compare badge makers once you decide how you will use the badge making machine and how many badges you will make. If this is for a one-time event, buy a badge maker that costs less. If you want a badge making machine for ongoing projects, buy the one that makes more badges in a shorter amount of time.

    Starter kits come with a hand-held badge maker and enough supplies to make a few badges. These are usually around £19. You can purchase more supplies to make more badges. This type of badge maker is great for the one-time activities or teachers who want to make reward buttons for students to wear in class.

    Semi-automatic machines can make up to 500 badges per hour. Some badge making machines come with dies to make only one size cut. Most semi-automatic badge making machines come with three. These are much more expensive, costing up to £975.

    Some badge making machines are somewhere in the middle in cost and in how many badges they will make in an hour's time. Go to a craft or fabric store to study the products and compare quality and price. Talk to the associates at the store and they will give you more information if necessary. Sometimes the store will have an open one that you can hold in your hand and try to make a badge. Make sure the badge making machine is easy for you to handle and use.

    Look online and see what different badge making machines you can find. Read customer reviews. Compare online prices with the prices at your local stores.

    Purchase the badge making machine that fits your needs and your budget.
