🎥 A guide to picking the right Press Snaps

In this guide, we'll delve into the world of press snaps, focusing on Line 16 Sigma Snaps, Glove Snaps, Line 20 Snaps, and Line 24 Snaps, and help you choose the right one for your specific leather crafting project.

Glove Snaps: Glove snaps, as the name suggests, are specifically designed for gloves and other delicate leather items. These snaps are smaller than Line 16 Sigma snaps, making them ideal for projects that require a more refined finish. Whether you're working on gloves, baby shoes, soft cover journals, or small leather garments, glove snaps provide a secure closure without overwhelming the delicate nature of your project.

Line 16 Sigma Snaps: Line 16 Sigma Snaps are the perfect choice for lightweight leather projects. If you're crafting wallets, cardholders, coin purses, upholstery, key holders or small accessories, these snaps offer a discreet yet secure fastening solution. Their petite size makes them ideal for projects where subtlety is key. Sigma snaps are also easy to install, making them a great option for beginners in the world of leathercrafting. Unlike other snaps, the back of sigma snaps have a "finished" look.

Line 20 Snaps: Moving up the size scale, Line 20 snaps are versatile and suitable for a wide range of leathercrafting projects 2-3 oz to  5-6oz thick. They are the most popular size we sell, for good reason. If you're working on medium-weight leather items such as bags, purses, folders, or larger accessories, Line 20 snaps offer a balance between size and strength. They provide a sturdy closure without being too bulky, making them a popular choice for many DIY leathercrafters.

Line 24 Snaps: When it comes to heavy-duty leather projects, Line 24 snaps are the go-to choice, for leather 6-7oz up to 8-9oz. These snaps are larger and more robust, making them perfect for thick leather items like belts, tool holders, and even heavy-duty bags. Line 24 snaps ensure a secure closure and can withstand the rigors of daily use, making them a reliable option for projects that demand durability and strength.
