What is the best size for a campaign button? You want your button to be noticed so everyone will know about your candidate, right? It's important to choose a button size that is big enough to be seen but not so big they become awkward for the people that want to wear them.
It's tempting to get the biggest button possible but that actually might not be the best way to get your message out. As the size of the button goes up so does the cost and weight of the buttons. In addition to the cost, if you give a woman in a nice blouse a six inch button she is not going to pin it to her shirt because of the weight on her shirt and possible damage. So even though a six inch button would be noticeable, it might not be noticed at all if no one wants to wear it. A much better choice would be something in the range between 2.25” – 3.5” with the most popular size for campaigns being our 3" button. They are visible from a distance with a lot of room for your message but not so heavy that they will change the fit of your clothing!
