I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
Our grommets are great for users of all sizes and kinds. Just pair with the compatible ClipsShop press machine, and you’re on your way to creating professional, clean grommet finishing for banners, signs, papers, curtains, fabrics, and nearly anything else you need. The intended user is really more limited by the machine itself than the grommets, and we have a huge selection of presses from low- to high-volume as well, so the type or size user is not dependent on the grommets themselves.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT:
Our grommets are top-quality, made of solid brass that won’t rust like other alternatives out there. In fact, most grommets you find on the market may look the same, but in reality, they are often only coated with brass. Because these grommets are solid brass, they are stronger are more resistant to corrosion, so they work great for both indoor and outdoor uses. But even with our high quality manufacturing, we’re able to offer competitive pricing, so we’re still close to the line of pricing of the cheaper brands.
We offer a large selection of grommet sizes, so you can do anything you need. The smallest size is an XX00 and has a tiny, 1/8” hole; and the largest hole is a number 12 with a 1.5” hole. In addition to the sizes, we have a large selection of colors as well. The most popular are common brass and silver, however, we also offer antique brass, white, black oxide, copper oxide, and gun metal.
Our grommets are also, depending on the size, self-piercing. They have a surprisingly sharp neck that can pierce through many impressively thick materials. For the extra large grommets, you simply pair them with a hole cutting die, so they’re just as easy to use.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
As with all grommets, not all machines will be compatible with all of the sizes. So before you buy a grommet based on the wide selection of size options, make sure your machine is compatible. Something else to consider is that, although grommets are typically universal based on the size alone, the only way to ensure perfect quality setting is to pair them with our top-quality grommet dies and press machines, all manufactured by the same ClipsShop brand.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
If you want the best of the best, then our ClipsShop grommets are the way to go. They are the top-quality grommets on the market, but we offer them at an affordable price, so you get way more bang for your buck than with other brands. The size and color selection is vast, to match well with any look you want to achieve, and the strength of the solid brass can pierce through materials exceptionally well. Basically, if you want the best value, then our grommets are a great choice.
