Our 24 karat gold 1″ buttons are a great option for getting your message out in a unique way. But we understand that they can be a bit over some budgets (they’re GOLD, for goodness sake!), and sometimes you want a button larger than a 1 incher.
Did you know that there are ways to fake gold buttons? It’s true! Check out these tricks for getting your “golden” message across on a budget.
1. Full Color Metallic Effect
Our metallic printing option utilizes the metal pinback to give your design a metallic sheen. By adding a yellow background to your design, you can take advantage of that normally silver sheen and make it appear to be gold. For this example, we used CMYK values C0/M32/Y86/K0 to replicate a rich golden color.
2. Black Print on Gold Paper
The ultimate gold-on-a-budget solution, choose metallic gold paper for your black print design and get buttons that have a little extra precious-metal kick, like the example above.
With these tricks, you can make golden buttons to impress even those with the most discerning tastes.
