Graphic Guidlines for Buttons

Graphics Guidelines for Using our Button Templates



Print ready artwork should be supplied to us in one of our button templates.  Below is an example of one of our templates.

When designing a custom button, fit everything you wish to appear on the face of the button within the innermost blue guideline.


The area in-between the blue guideline and the green guideline is the rim area, any art or words which extend into this area will be visible on the rim of the button, but not on the face. 

Your background color or graphic should extend to fill the red circle. If not filled, or removed, the red circle will print. The part of the red circle which extends past the green template guide is our recommended bleed.  The white area is a not visible on the finished product. 

  • graphics used in our template should be no less than 300DPI
  • the template should be saved at no less than 300 DPI
  • the template should be saved as CMYK, RGB files will be converted and color shifts often occur
  • fonts need to be embedded, converted to outlines, or supplied
  • for best results rim text should be added by our graphic designer do note flatten rim text

COLOR WARNING

Be aware that monitor types vary in how well they can display color and graphics. Individual monitor settings such as brightness, contrast, frequency, temperature, etc. will also affect your color accuracy. What all this boils down to is that images on your monitor will always look somewhat different than the final printed product. 

Just Buttons has no control over how your monitor is calibrated and cannot in any way guarantee what you see color wise is accurate. If you have specific color concerns, please contact us right away and provide uncoated Pantone Color numbers for matching or a real-world example for us to reference.

Graphics Guidelines for our Online Button Designer

With our online button designer tool, you can quickly and easily design a button online without having to download templates or buy expensive design software. With our software, you can upload your own image(s) or choose from our library of backgrounds, clipart, and pre-made templates.

If you are uploading an image into our software the following criteria are recommended:

  • it is saved at 300 DPI in .jpg or .png format
  • At 300 dpi the image should not exceed the dimensions of the button. For instance, if you are uploading an image for a 3" button, your file should be 3" x 3" at 300 DPI, a file which is 15" x 15" will time out, and not upload.
