So, you received your button machine in the mail and you’re ready to start making buttons… but you don’t even know where to begin when it comes to deigning.
Below is a little guide for you on using the free button designer website to help relieve all your stress when it comes to setting up your designs. You may remember our post from a couple years back on the launch of the new free software, but let’s recap here.
PICTURE IT IF YOU WILL…
It’s been a long day, and you still have a bunch buttons to design for that super important thing tomorrow.
Most people would start brewing that late-night cup of coffee, and get ready to hunker down for the long haul…
But not you! You head over to button-designer.com
WHAT IS BUTTON-DESIGNER?
It’s a website that makes it really simple to whip together button designs. And best of all? It’s freeeeeee 🙂
The website allows you to add an uploaded image, text, icons, etc. to a button template of any size. Once you’re done, the button design is saved as a PDF print sheet, and is ready to be cut and pressed.
