Snaps are not one-size-fits-all. If your snaps are too long for your fabric, they won't close properly. If they're too short, they'll fall off. For this reason, it's important to choose the proper size / length for your material.
Which size works best for you will depend on a number of variables, such as the fabric you are using, its density and compression levels, how hard you are able to press, and your own personal preference. For these reasons, we are unable to provide specific size recommendations for every scenario.

I have ordered twice this assortment and loved it both times. I mismatch them for the children's toys that I make. They are wonderful
I bought these back when I decided I'd start using snaps in my sewing and knitting, and assumed I'd mess up a lot so I'd needed "practice" ones. These came in lovely colors and they have not only helped me learn how to snap with no issue what so ever, when I've had to fix things, or crafting things at random I'm able to dip into these.
Some projects I've used these for - fixing my daughter's backpack. making her PJs that snap in back. Possibly going to make one of those snapazoos... and more. When the project calls for snaps are you aren't picky about the color this deal is the way to go. I will definitely order another batch in the future (once i figure out how to store them all)
The colors truly didnt matter when I ordered these. Regardless I got a great mix of colors and a ton of them for a great price! They are sturdy and amazing! I love love love kam snaps! Won't ever order anywhere else. Durable and amazing. The suspense of what colors you'll get is fun too 💛💛💛
Perfect!! I'm using these to make diapers and cloth pads to send to Haiti so the colors do not matter as long as the quality is good I will defiantly be ordering these again
Love thay the colors go reasonably well together, and super excited to have extras to practice with. I can see just at a glance thay they're better quality than other brands.
