Is it worth it to buy a snap press and use snaps instead of using Aplix?? I'm thinking about my Xmas list this year and am thinking about putting a snap press on it. Anyone know where you can get a snap press? Do you have to get it on line? Shouldn't they have one at Joann fabrics or Michaels??
I am considering getting one for Christmas. There is someone named serena that sells them very affordably. Unfortunately most of the stuff you want for CD isn't at jolenes or hancocks darnit!!! If you sew come over to diapersewingdivas
I SOOOOOO want a snap press. I despise working with aplix, I always get it crooked. Plus snaps look much more professional imo. But wow, it's quite a bit of $. Maybe for a Christmas present...That and a didy...:
as a BUYER and USER of cloth diapers and mampads WAHM-made and otherwise, I almost always choose snaps over velcro or aplix.... I have cloth diapered four kids over almost 9 years and I have done everything from gerber prefolds,pins and rubber pants to the 20 dollar diapers and the ones that last the best seem to be the snap ones.
if you are selling them and can justify the expense and receover it eventually i say go for it
I just got mine. very nice, and at least harder for a toddler to take off. Serena has the best price by, $125 gets the press, size 16 and 20 die sets and $50 of snaps. She also throws in extra freebees. And that price includes shipping. Takes about 3 wks depending on where you live.
I love aplix but cannot live without snaps! I find that snaps take less time when you are sewing a diaper and the end result looks much cuter. But aplix gets you a better fit. So this is why it's always so hard to decide... But I'm lazy so if it's for me I go with snaps as far as sewing them goes. But then again maybe it takes me longer to sew them with aplix because I have had so much more practice with snaps... I don't know.
So, yes! Deffinitely get a snap press. And I also recommend the ones from The Snap Store.
