Design Templates

Simple design and template instructions:
Template must be downloaded to your compluter and opened in using an image editing program (i.e. Photoshop/Illustrator/GIMP/MSPaint) to work with. When you are done, email the artwork to portlandbuttonworks@gmail.com

The inner circle on the template is what will apear on the face of your button/magnet/etc. The area between the inner and outer circle is the bleed area, most of which will be folded over and tucked into the back. Make sure your artwork fits inside the inner circle. The inner circle and "bleed area" labels are there as a guide, but should be covered or erased before sending the design to us. The outer circle should be visible, this is where the artwork will be cut. The outer circle is crucial to make sure your artwork is centered. Designs look best when the background color (or design) bleeds out to the edge. If you are woking in Photoshop/GIMP make sure to "flatten the image" under the "layer" option in the menu and the save it as as tif./tiff., preferably, otherwise a jpg. or even the flattened .psd works (.psd files are just larger file formats and e-mail has a tough time sending that much information).

Advanced design and template instructions:
The inner circle on the template is what the face of your button/magnet/etc... will look like. The area between the inner and outer circle is the bleed area, most of which will be folded over and tucked into the back. Make sure your artwork fits inside the inner circle. The inner circle is there as a guide, but should be covered or erased before sending the design to us. The advanced templates are .psd files with layers so the inner circle and "bleed area" layers should be deleted before sending your design to us. Designs look best when the background color (or design) bleeds out to the edge. The "bleed area" line is also a guide for adding text around the edge of the button/magnet/bottle opener. Also, before sending your artwork to us PLEASE flatten your design. As it is with the regular templates, saving it as any Photoshop or GIMP friendly file format will work, but we prefer .tiff files.
