Here you will find free downloadable templates for designing pin-back style buttons in various design programs including Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

The free button design templates for Photoshop are especially cool because they are set up to precisely fill an 8x10 size canvas. This works for all sizes except for 2.25 and 3 inch which precisely fill an 8.5x11 canvas and are likely to have little bits of the bleed area on the graphic cut off when printed, due to lack of proper margins. It works out ok for most applications.

In Photoshop, design your button, then turn off the Face Line layer and select Edit > Define Pattern. Then open a new document that is 8x10 (or 8.5x11 for 2.25 or 3 inch buttons) at 300 PPI. Select Edit > Fill > With Pattern and select your button from the defined pattern drop down. BOOM your page is ready for printing! Scroll to the bottom of the page for a video tutorial.

If you don't have Photoshop or Illustrator, check out our handy online button design tool. It's free!
