What Is The Cost of Custom Buttons?

The cost of custom buttons can vary greatly, depending on several factors such as material, size and quantity. Customising a button to your specifications does not have to be expensive - there are ways to get the look you want without breaking the bank.

In this article, we will explore how different materials, sizes and quantities can affect the cost of custom buttons so that you can decide what's best for your project. We will also discuss some tips on how to get cheap custom buttons without sacrificing quality or aesthetics. So let’s dive in!

How customisation affects the cost of a button

Three aspects determine the cost of a custom button: the material, the size and the quantity. Let's explore what that means.


When it comes to personalising custom buttons, the material you choose for your design can significantly impact the cost. We offer a variety of materials at different price points, including white vinyl, holographic, glitter, silver and gold. Each of these materials will give your button a unique look and feel that fits your design perfectly.

Additionally, some materials are better suited for certain printing techniques than others - so if you want to ensure that your design looks its best when printed onto the button, consider this factor as well. 


Custom buttons come in standard sizes (25mm, 32mm, 37mm, 58mm), and their cost depends on the material used. The larger the button size, the more material it requires to make it, increasing its cost.

If you choose a thicker or more durable material for your custom button design, that can add to its price. However, there are ways to get cheap custom buttons without sacrificing quality or aesthetics - such as ordering large quantities at once or using simpler materials like white vinyl.


The quantity of buttons you order will also affect their cost. The more buttons you order at once, the better price per unit you’ll get. However, it's important to note that there might be a minimum order requirement to receive any discounts - so make sure to ask your provider if this applies before placing your order.

Calculating the cost of a custom button

But what does that mean? Let us have a look at a concrete example.

When you order your custom buttons online, you first have to select a product. Depending on that, you then have to enter or select your desired size, material and quantity.

Let's say you want to order a custom logo button. Head to that product page. Then, you can select from standard size. For this example, we will use 37mm and select white vinyl. The pricing calculator will generate an instant quote for you broken down at different quantities like this:

  • 50 buttons - £25
  • 100 buttons - £33
  • 200 buttons - £58
  • 500 buttons - £115
  • 1000 buttons - £195

If, instead of white vinyl, you select holographic vinyl at the same size, it will affect the price as follows:

  • 50 buttons - £28
  • 100 buttons - £37
  • 200 buttons - £65
  • 500 buttons - £129
  • 1000 buttons - £218

How to get cheap custom buttons

Are you looking for a way to get custom buttons without breaking the bank? You're in luck! With just a few simple tips, you can create high-quality and aesthetically pleasing buttons at an affordable price.

From choosing the right materials to ordering in bulk, there are plenty of ways to make your custom button dreams come true on a budget. So let's discover some clever strategies for getting cheap custom buttons!

Select a standard material

When it comes to custom buttons, selecting a standard material over an effect material can help you get the look you want without breaking the bank. At Sticker it, our classic white vinyl is one of our most popular and cost-effective materials for creating custom buttons.

Not only does this material offer superior print quality, but it also offers excellent durability and affordability - making it perfect for those who are looking to create high-quality buttons on a budget.

Choose a suitable size

Choosing the right size for your custom button can also help you save money. When selecting a size, consider what kind of design or image you are printing on your buttons and which size best suits that look.

As discussed earlier, larger sizes are more expensive due to the amount of material needed to create them. If you want to save money on buttons, opt for a smaller size (25mm or 32mm).

Benefit from bulk discounts

Ordering in bulk is one of the best ways to get cheap custom buttons. Most companies offer discounted prices when you purchase large quantities of custom buttons - so if you plan on ordering multiple designs, it's worth looking into.

If your design requires intricate details, this is an even better time to order in bulk, as the cost of production will be spread out over a larger number of buttons. Have a look at our previous example. Ordering 50 buttons breaks down to £2 per button, whereas 1000 buttons will cost you 22 pence per button.

Order samples to test your buttons

Finally, don’t forget to order samples before you commit to purchasing large quantities of custom buttons. This is especially important for intricate designs or those that require special effects.

When ordering samples, you’ll be able to get a better idea of how the buttons will look and feel without having to invest in large quantities. Additionally, if there are any issues with the design, such as incorrect colours or sizing, you can make adjustments before making a larger purchase.


Choosing the right material, size and quantity can help you save money on custom buttons. Additionally, ordering in bulk and testing samples of your design can also help you get the best price for your order. We hope this article has helped you understand how customisation affects the cost of a button so that you can make an informed decision when creating your own custom buttons.
