Make Buttons

One of the many creative things you can do at Make is button making.  If you have never tried button making before, you'll be amazed at how entertaining it is!  You can say whatever you want on a button, within reason that is ;) and it's always fun and always friendly!

How It Works

Step 1

Grab a button template in store.
Colour it, collage it, stamp it, write on it - get creative and add anything you fancy!
Or to create and bring in your own printed buttons sheets, download our 1" button template or 1.75" button template.


Step 2

Bring it to the button making machine:
Watch as our friendly staff bring your design to life. 

Step 3

Create and experiment:
No charge for template circles  or art supplies.

Step 4

Love it?
Make some more!
Create one for every occasion.

How It Works

Q: How do I order custom buttons?

A:  Click on the following links to download our 1" button template or  1.75" button template.   Then you can pop your design(s) onto the template and bring the printed sheet(s) into us at Make. Our Makers will be happy to make your buttons for you, usually same day! 

Q: What is the pricing for custom buttons? Are there volume discounts?

A: Button Pricing (for either size):
1-11 buttons:  $2 each
12-59 buttons: $1.70 each
60-120 buttons: $1.50 each
120+ buttons: we will quote.

*Prices are based on you providing the printed template sheets and we press the buttons for you. 

Q: "What is your turnaround time like?"

A: 1-11 buttons: approx 1 hour
12-59 buttons: same day - several hours later
60-100 buttons: same day if ordered early in day, next day if ordered late in day
100+ buttons: 24-48 hrs +
(these are approximates, sometimes faster or slower depending on how busy the shop is)
*Please note, you'll need to print your sheet(s) to bring them into us  for button-making.

Q: Are there any design concerns I should be aware of?

A: Let your imagination run wild! The only thing to keep in mind is that the outer rim area wraps around the button, so don't put any important text or imagery in that outer area. Also, for more detailed or text-focused button designs, we recommend going with the bigger (1.75") size.

Happy button making!
