You may be asking, “What button do I need?”. When it comes to answering this question, there are several important factors to keep in mind. From branding and shapes to application, sustainability and price range, each aspect plays a crucial role in achieving your desired results. Let’s explore these considerations to help you make an informed decision: 

General Considerations: Size, Shape, and Functionality

Here, you should take into account:

  • The overall size and shape of the buttons to ensure they align with your desired look and feel.

  • The thickness of the fabric where the buttons will be attached. Different fabrics may require specific button styles or sizes for a secure fit and durability.

  • Style and functionality (when choosing customizable button shapes)

Want a Logo? 

Logos can serve as a powerful branding tool, especially when the shape, size, and visibility of your logo on your button is optimal. You will also need to decide between flat, dome, or raised button tops, keeping in mind the application process and the number of fabric layers required for optimal logo visibility. Finally, pay attention to the top and back (collet), as well as the tack that attaches the button to the fabric.

Pull Strength: Complying with Industry Standards

It is important to familiarize yourself with the specific industry or product for your fastener. Industrial applications may require higher pull strength and industry specific materials compared to apparel buttons. Familiarize yourself with the pull strength standards applicable to your industry to ensure that the buttons meet the durability requirements. 

Price Range: Balancing Value and Cost

Determining your price range is crucial when selecting custom logo buttons. Are you looking for value-cost options or higher value buttons that exude premium quality and function? Finding a balance between your budget and the desired level of craftsmanship will help you make the best choice for your specific needs.
