Custom Button Design: The Do’s and Don’ts
Thinking of starting up your small business at home? Well, a lot of us do. And to be honest, there are a lot of options to choose when starting your own small business at home. It can be tedious but fun and you start customizing it for your friends and family. Catchy texts and colorful buttons are easily noticed and somehow ask you where you got it.
Things you need to consider when making customized buttons.
Keep The Text Short And Catchy
In order to relay your message through a button, you have to think that you only have 10 seconds in total to have it noticed. 5 seconds for them to notice it, and 5 more seconds to read your message. If they are not able to read them, then the whole point of your button is inaccurate.
Use Bold Fonts That Are Easy To Read. Never Use Comic Sans
For most people bold and large fonts are easier to read whether your target audience is 20 years old up until 50 years old. So never use fonts that are thin and hard to read as this will not relay any information to your audience.
Use Appropriate Color
Do not over do your color choices, it might destruct to the entire message. And sometimes, what you like may not be as appealing to other people.
What Color To Use For the Background
When choosing a background color, you also have to think of what color the text would be. You can’t simply use a pink background with a red font right? Keep it simple clean and attractive.
Choose The Right Font
When you are designing for a button, always remember the actual size of the product. You might be using a large font size 36 that is way too large for a button right? Just look for a font that is clean and just the right size which is readable to people 3 or 4 ft. away from you.
Most of the printers available in the market today are high quality and can print up to 2400×2400 DPI. So to make sure that we have the right size always do test print. This will not only save you money but as well as time. What we are actually seeing on our monitor is quite different from the actual print.
Save Your Work
For every job you make, always make sure that you save it. Whether it’s a .jpg file or a layered file such as PSD. There are thousands of fonts available or both MAC and PCs and not all of them is in your computer. We choose our fonts for a reason and we do not want to look for an alternative font if in any case you need to edit your design in another computer. This will become a problem on your end, so always save your work.
