How to Pick the Right Button Size

We're often asked to describe the differences in the sizes that we offer. Here is a quick reference that you can use when deciding what size will meet your needs. Our most popular sizes are 1.25", 2.25", and 3" rounds.  

 

Custom 1 inch round buttons

Approximately the size of a quarter, 1" buttons have been favorites of bands and brands for decades. One inch rounds are the only size we carry which feature a spring lock back. We do not recommend this size for young children. One inch rounds are best suited for simple logos and bold text.  

 

1.25 Inch Round Buttons
1.25" Rounds are approximately the size of the US half a dollar. Unlike the one inch round, the 1.25" features a spring lock back. The extra .25 inch really makes a big difference. However, we do suggest avoiding display fonts, or designs with a lot of detail. As small details are hard to see on a 1.25" from a distance of an arm's length. 

 

1.5 Inch Round Buttons

1.50" Rounds are approximately the diameter of a standard ping pong ball.  The 1.5 inch round buttons is an extremely affordable and popular size. Especially for tradeshows, and giveaways!
