Create a new collar stay in an instant with the squeeze of your hand using the Collar Stay Punch.

Floppy collars can look sloppy and unprofessional. That’s why most formal shirts are designed to use collar stays that tuck into the back of your collar’s tips and prop them up. But it’s not always easy to keep track of your collar stays since they can fall out or get lost in the wash.

Spruce up your shirt while simultaneously giving new life to an old plastic card by upcycling it into a collar stay. Simply insert the card into the punch, squeeze the handle, and a new collar stay instantly pops out!

Useless expired credit cards, gift cards, hotel keys, and other thin plastic instantly transforms into a useful fashion accessory with the handy Collar Stay Punch.

Tough Build for a Refined Look

In order to punch through plastic up to 1 mm thick, the Collar Stay Punch is made with all-metal construction and a steel punch. The result is a hefty 1.5-pound tool that feels solid in the hand while still being manageable.

It’s even engineered with a window through the punch press, so you can create perfectly customized collar stays that, like your favorite underwear, can give you a secret confidence boost.

The Collar Stay Punch boasts a steel punch head, all-metal construction, and easy-view alignment.

With an integrated sanding plate on the bottom of the Punch, you can rest easy knowing there won’t be any plastic burrs on your collar stays to catch on the threads of your collar and fray them. So go forth with style confidence and conquer the world!

Question: Wait, what good are collar stays? Who cares?

Answer: Quality dress shirts are meant be supported with collar stays. They help your collar stand taller and crisper, which simply looks better (especially when you’re not wearing a tie). Think of how different you look and feel when you stand with good posture compared to slouching. The same holds true for collars.

Question: How do you attach them to your shirt?

Answer: If your shirt is made to hold collar stays, you’ll find small pockets on the underside of your collar that you can slip the stays into.

Question: Is this made by the same people who make the guitar pick punch?

Answer: Yes, since the Collar Stay Punch shares a maker with the Guitar Pick Punch, you can expect the same quality engineering and build.
