What is an Acetate Button?

128_1245781018Almost daily someone sends us an e-mail or on-line help request asking us what is the difference between a color button an an acetate button. Hopefully I can clear this up once and for all. A color button is just that a button printed in full color on high quality white paper with a protective mylar cover. An acetate button is printed on a clear sheet of plastic (acetate) similar to transparency sheets. Acetate buttons also have a protective mylar cover. An acetate button has no white on it. Anything that is white in your design will appear silver. With the right design an acetate button can be very cool.

Simple designs with bold line work work best with acetate. Keep in mind when designing an acetate button that your background is going to be a metalic silver, it may help to design your button on a gray background layer to get a better idea of what your button will endup looking like.
