Vintage Printable Button Labels by Cathe Holden

Free Vintage Button Label Printables

The other night as I enjoyed (Cathe Holden of sorting through bags of colorful vintage buttons I’d been collecting I had a “Eureka!” moment: Button stickers! So off to my scanner and on to my desktop I went.

– I hope you’ll enjoy this fun collection of 63 vintage button images sized to fit World Label one-inch label stock.

– Download the FREE PDF file, print to label stock and use button stickers for:

– Envelope seals

– Decorating plain gift wrap

– Organizing your own button tins or jars by color

– To denote special dates on your wall calendar

– Whimsical garland (attach button labels back to back along a string)

– Collage and other craft projects

– Furniture embellishments

– Lunch sack closures

ALSO: Feel free to also print to paper or cardstock for cutting out individual button images with a one-inch paper punch for:

– Paper stitching projects

– Tokens/award chips

– A game: Print and punch two sets, place matching pairs randomly upside down on a table to create a memory game like “Concentration”.

What would you do with a vintage button label collection? Please share!

  • Cathe Holden

    Thanks for all the kudos everyone! I’m so happy you’re enjoying the buttons : )

  • susan w

    The buttons are slightly off the label edges when I print them. Could it be my printer? (Kodak All-in-One 5250)
    What steps can I take to adjust the pdf or ???

    The colors are delicious! My grandmother had a button box also; I have a few of those buttons still and now I want to print these successfully!

  • Barbra

    I used button stickers to seal packages since my company is “All About The Buttons” but I have been having difficulty finding them. This is great. Thanks so much!

  • wlmanager

    Hi Susan – usually it is a printer problem, please try adjust the properties from paper to labels in the settings. Sometimes its easier to print on full sheet labels and cut out the designs with a hole punch.

    Please let me know if you have andy more questions

  • rechercher

    These are so cool, and I already know what I’m going to use them for. Thanks again Cathe for another great printable!

  • Linda Greiss

    Cathe, Thank you for so generously sharing your incredible button collection! I also have a nice collection of buttons that years ago a friend of mine scanned them for me. We then printed out white buttons on vellum. I also drew a bunch of my buttons which I used in a button accordian book edition I made. The book was done in black and white with a real white vintage button sewn on the cover. I don’t think I have any photos of it. I will have to rectify that. Always enjoy your wonderful creations! Linda

  • Rita Baker

    Thank you so much. I love vintage buttons, I hate to part with them. I start sorting them to sell and then just put them back in their tins, changed my mind. Thanks again

  • Ruth

    Thank you – these are great! I’m sure I will come up with a use for them for my daughter’s upcoming Lalaloopsy party!

  • Sam

    Thank you – these were perfect for a card I had to put in the mail. I printed them at 50% on card stock and was able to “sew” them on.

  • PennyA

    Really love these (as noted above). Ordered the labels just to be able to play with this design, but cannot get the alignment right (?) I have made the suggested adjustments to the settings of my printer *HP Color LaserJet 3600* (labels vs. plain paper), and have selected “Fit” vs. “Actual” for the sizing within Adobe .PDF Printer. Is there anything else I can do to make this work? With thanks!

  • wlmanager

    Penny, please call me to discuss this issue at 877-955 2235

    Thank you


  • PennyA


    Thanks for the suggestions. I actually opened the .PDF in another program, and was able to ‘fidget’ a bit with the size/alignment — I am now happily printing buttons!

  • wlmanager

    It is a pleasure :)

  • carolyn

    Lovely combination and colours. thanks so much x
