Template Downloads - Button templates for People Who Make Buttons!

DESIGN OPTION 1: Use Our Button Templates
Scroll down to find the size and shape of button you are designing and download the template appropriate to the program you are using. The PDF template is compatible with most programs. Please use the PSD template for Photoshop and the AI template for Illustrator.

Template Tips:

• Create artwork at 300dpi in CMYK format, work directly on this template (do NOT place or copy template into a new file).
• Your artwork should fit inside the "Artwork Area" and make sure the “Cut Lines” layer is turned on.
• Design background should extend to outer blue “Cut Line”.
• If you want text on the edge of your button, it must fit between the two dotted guide lines.
• Outline or flatten all text layers before saving.
• Turn off or delete the “TEMPLATE” layer before sending artwork (Magenta "Artwork Area" Line should not be visible)
• If printing at home, scale at 100% (do not “fit to page”)
• Send your artwork to us as a PDF, TIFF or JPG file or as an AI or PSD
