Button rims add sophistication and elegance to finished buttons... or old-timey charm, depending on fabric.  Perfect for antique, vintage, and steampunk impressions.  Appropriate for ferrotype, lithograph, and daguerreotype button reproductions.

Solid brass or nickel-plated brass. 
Compatible with all shell profiles:  standard, flat, or low wall.  No longer in production, so we had them custom made.  WB Exclusive!

American rim setting dies haven't been in production for decades.  Very sadly, the last custom die maker1 left in the industry died in 2015—as far as we know, his antique tooling has been sold for scrap.  Old rim setting dies sometimes appear on eBay, and we're working on a tutorial for an alternate setting method using HUX dies.

1Rest in peace, Puzant "Tony" Buzantian.  A consummate engineer, an honorable man, and a good friend.  You are deeply missed.
