I'm looking on ebay for the back of badges, but I've got no idea what to search under. I don't really want brooch backs, preferably ones like safety pins or those ones that look like earring back, butterfly pins are they?
I do fabric covered button badges' but at the moment i seem to be having real problems getting them, so anyone who gets a button badge from me should feel VERY special ;D
I've scoured ebay recently for them, but no luck.
You may just have to resort to small brooch backs, you can hide them quite well with a fabric circle on top.
I'm looking to stick an aquila on top, so the smaller the better.. i think i just found some tie/badge pins, but there are only 10 of them, all other badge backs are 100 for about the same price, but probably too big
Sounds like you're having better luck than me!
If you come across any 1 1/2" button badges, let me know!!
By the way, what's an aquila?
the eagle thingy, a warhammer 40k symbol
Had a look - I see what the issue is! It's quite delicate, huh?
Hope you have some luck finding what you're looking for, I'll certainly keep an eye-out for something suitable.
Alternatively, in the mean time, if you have a full 'sheet' you could mount one on to some sort of cartouche then you could use a bigger finding.
Also, the smallest brooch back I have is 2.5 x 0.5cm, which looking at the dimensions on the link, might just fit the smaller panel at the bottom. Do you want me to add 1 to your parcel to try?
it's ok i'll wait until i see the full size of the aquilas i ordered. then i will know what i will be able to do!
got the aquilas, damn they are thin :s i thought they would be thicker, the size is ok, look smaller then i thought on the pc screen though.
What about earring studs? might not be very strong when attaching to clothes etc tho.
Oh, I put the smallest brooch back I had in with the buttons, for you to try.
We'd love to know what you think - Leave your reply right away
