How To Design a Button in Photoshop

Want to create and submit your own designs? Check out this video tutorial to learn how to take your ideas from concept to print. This technique can be applied to any of the button products made with the Tecre brand button equipment (including button pins, magnets, pocket mirrors, etc).

You will need to download my templates and have a copy of Photoshop to work with the files. When your design(s) are ready, you may place an order in my web shop and upload your printer-ready artwork. Please note: Creation or setup of 1 design is included with every (non-tattoo) order, so you are not required to do this. If you would like to use more than 1 design for no extra charge — or if you simply prefer to create your own designs — your artwork must be submitted using my templates in full page print-ready layout for the entire order. This video will demonstrate exactly how.
