Button Template:

We have a 1.25 inch diameter button maker. Download our basic button template (microsoft word version) here. If you have photoshop or another graphics program that uses layers, you can find 1.25 inch button templates in layered formats online.

  1. Paste your image into the word document and change the wrap text settings on it to “tight” – then right click and click “send it back”
  2. Drag the blue circle on top of your image – if your image fits inside, you will be good to go! (included is an RPIRG logo as an example to test with)
  3. If you don’t have a white background (or if the image background is a different colour than the paper you are using), it’s ideal to have at least a .25inch bleed outside the circle. This way, if you don’t cut the circle perfectly evenly, the background colour will still be the same

Important information to consider:

* We are a non-partisan organization and as such do not rent our button maker (or lend out other resources) to political parties or their candidates/electoral campaigns.

* Please note that we do not create artwork/design buttons for rental groups, and rental does not cover the cost of printing

* Any additional button pieces will be $10 for every 100, and payment can be paid with cash or cheque

* Button Maker must be returned by the agreed upon time – we typically do not rent it out for more than 3-4 days

* Renter will be held liable for any damages/ unreturned equipment
