The ideal Crafted Findings rivet length is approximately 1mm (1/32" - 1/16") longer than the total thickness of the pieces you are riveting. If in doubt (textured metal, imprecise measurements, etc.), it's generally best to go for a rivet that is a bit too long. Rivet assortments are a great way to get started, then follow up by ordering specific lengths as needed.
This reference chart is a rough guide to help you decide which rivet lengths are likely to work best for new projects.
