Can I buy a starter pack from you?

Yes you can! I prepared a starter pack with 7 different sizes of rivets. 
This way you can try out what size stem and cap work for your project(s) and you can evaluate what size(s) rivets you want to order to keep on hand. Hopefully this sample set of rivets will give you a starting point on using rivets.
