We like using the SnapRite system. Would love colored snap buttons to work with the SnapRite system. Any chance colored buttons (like non SnapRite buttons) are coming or we just live with silver only?

Thanks,
Annette

Right now we don't have a solution but I have one on the table. It sounds like I need to get going on the plan. My vision is to have plastic UV stable snap in colored caps that both plug the Snaprite hole and allow the snaps to blend into common Sunbrella colors. Let me know what you think?

Wow sounds like a perfect solution. We would definitely buy Captain Navy/Navy/Black ones as the contrast of the silver against the dark blue is so high (although some might like that look I suppose). If you need "beta" testers let me know!
Thanks,
Annette

With your sale today I'm having a hard time choosing between the Snaprite sytem or the Press-N-Snap system, is there a comparison of the two or is one better suited for any specific job over the other?

The SnapRite has more uses without buying additional dies. It is also great for positioning button snaps. My preference is the SnapRite but the Pres-N-Snap is and always has been a great tool. I would say the biggest difference is that with the SnapRite you will have a hole in the botton top. The Pres-N-Snap does not require parts with a hole going all the way through. But here are the benefits of the Snap-right:
 
1. No throat restiction
2. Use as a positioner
3. Sets standard snaps and pull-the-dots and gypsy studs (without buying additional dies)
 
Advantages of Pres-N-Snap:
 
1. No holes in buttons
2. Does not require a mandrel

Yes, the Pres-N-Snap needs additional dies, but it has worked great for me on snaps, gypsy snaps and grommets.
 
The colored snap buttons match my Sunbrella fabric, to blend in nicely.
