Buttons design / Technical info

Tecnical information about the button size and bleed

* If you make a button design, you should keep in mind 2 things:  button size & bleed

* How to make the different button variants with a button machine? (instruction manual)
* We can also adapt, print and cut your design, ready to make buttons.

Button Size

The buttonsize is the real diameter of the button. Everything within this area will be shown on the front side of the button.

Bleed

The bleed is the extra area around the buttonsize. This bleed is not visible on the front side of the button, it goes on the side and inside of the button.

Following illustration will make everything clear:

 

The bleed is different for all button sizes: 

25mm: bleed 33,5mm

32mm: bleed 41,5mm

38mm: bleed 46,5mm

44mm: bleed 53,0mm 

56mm: bleed 66,5mm

75mm: bleed 88,0mm

88mm: bleed 101,6mm

 

Examples

The next images show some examples of what you should keep in mind: 

This is an example of a 25mm button with a 33,5mm bleed. 

 

Make sure your image is in the center of the buttonsize, otherwise some parts may fall off the front side. 

 

If you don't want white parts showing as in the example on the right, make your bleed have the same background color.
 

When using a photo also try to include extra bleed. 



Image Files

You can deliver your images in: .pdf, .eps, .ai, .tif, .psd, .jpg, ... Make sure your images have a minimal resolution of 300dpi. The images supplied do not always have to have the circular shape as you see above. You can safely send a square image of which the middle part is then used as an image.
