Button Templates

We've provided Photoshop templates for your button layout.

Photoshop .psd

 

Follow the guidelines below to ensure that your buttons turn out looking the way you want.

Resolution

For the best looking buttons set your resolution to 300dpi. Web images are only 72dpi and don't print very well. If there is a problem with your resolution we'll let you know.

Size

Try to send your images at least 2" x 2". Don't send a 1" x 1" image. Most times we have to resize your image and it's better to go smaller than bigger.

Color Format

It's best to send your artwork as CMYK rather than RGB. Your buttons may not turn out they way they look on the screen if you send us RGB format. If there's a significant difference between RGB and CMYK we'll let you know before we print your order.

File Formats

We prefer all artwork be sent as a .psd but We can accept the following file types:

.psd - Photoshop
.ai - Illustrator
.tif
.bmp
.gif
.jpg
.eps
.pdf

If you send us .psd or .ai files be sure to rasterize your text layers!!

Image needs to be sized up to fit.  Not good.
 

 
Image gets pixilated and blurry.
 

 
Oh oh, button looks bad.  Do you really want to give your fans this??
 
Solution: Make sure your images are at least 300dpi and 2"x2".

 

Bad Button - RGB vs CMYK
 

 

Image is 2" x 2" / 300dpi / RGB

 

 
When the RGB (screen colors) get converted to CMYK (printer colors) the results can be less than appealing.
 

Solution:  Convert your image to CMYK before you send it to ensure the colors are the way you want it.
