July FREE design of the month: Photoshop Button Template

Buttons are a great way to show your team spirit and how proud you are of your favorite sports player. Parents and grandparents LOVE them. So this month, due to overwhemling requests, I’ve created a special button template that can be used for all types of occasions.

You may be asking, “How do I make a button?”

I’m glad you asked! Some people do buy button machines, but if you are not ready for that kind of investment, you can have them created at many printing labs including MPIX. Or you can buy empty button holders at Oriental Trading, craft stores like Hobby Lobby and even some Walgreen stores.

  • 3.25″x3.25″ with 1/2 inch bleed (crop or resize easily)
  • 300 dpi

  • Add your photo to a clipping mask
  • Photoshop: change colors with by double clicking the layer then,  layer effects> color overlay
  • Elements: change colors with “color fill” layers above each layer
  • Change text color with character palette
  • Don’t forget to move the “glint” layer as desired to make your number or letter look like it has a glint on the edge.

Have fun with it and don’t forget to share your designs with me. I love to add them to the showcase at EasyDigitals.com or you can add them to the EasyDigitals.com Facebook page.
