Do you play Animal Crossing :3?

nope sorry

it would be too dangerous for me to play games with no endings

unless it’s style savvy because that’s educational

I wanna make buttons! they’ll be 2.25 in

what’s more appealing, close-up or full body?

Close up, a full view of a design with little details on such a tiny object just won’t work well.

Also people who buy buttons are often looking for them to…

Well, they use it. But the important question here is “does people like it?”, is it selling?”. Most people who make fan merchandise doesn’t have any experience in product design.

I have visited anime stores and cons, and buttons are a popular merchandise. I noticed that buttons with close ups or simple designs or patterns sell like hot cakes while the ones with full views or complex illustrations just piled up.

Official merchandise almost always make buttons with close ups or logos, or simplified versions of existing artwork. I think those are good examples.

I’d agree with the Avocado. From my days of con going and owning a thousand buttons myself, I prefer just the face of the character and maybe a little neck or whatever. 

The simplier and bolder the details the easier to recognize and enjoy the button! Your Mink button is so adorable too! If you have any Clear or Shiroba I would snatch them up in an instant! 

yeah I’ll definitely do all the dmmds!

I was already planning close-up, but I made a full body version because I can

when I showed my mom the different versions, she said “full body because you can see her dress!” and after I lol’d I thought I might as well do a poll to see, and I did not expect 50/50

simpler designs really do sell better. I kinda had mixed feelings when I kept running out of derp style stuff and everything else I put more effort on never sell as well, posters included, but whelp, guess that means it is my destiny to derp :v

Close up, a full view of a design with little details on such a tiny object just won’t work well.

Also people who buy buttons are often looking for them to stand out, not having to get super close to them to notice what it is so close up is more effective.

true

still I see most people that make 2.25 inch buttons use full body, so I’m wondering if that’s just what people expect at anime conventions?

going with close-up for sure though :u

I think close up because they’re more recognizable without a lot of clutter—like icons. People who see them will be able to tell what they are even at a bit of a distance, whether it’s on someone’s bag or your display at a con

ahah yeah I was leaning towards close-up anyway because my keychain designs work better that way

I can literally turn all my keychains into buttons now

200+ buttons

look at this kawaii motherfucker
