Many of the top authors on ThemeForest, and other Envato Marketplaces for that matter, have a set of buttons on their profiles and all of their items – see crazy popular items from Kresi and epicera. The purpose of these buttons is to encourage people to stay on top of the authors’ releases, and even connect with them elsewhere. One thing I noticed, was that everyone had their own set of buttons. So I set out on a search in hopes of finding a PSD that someone has shared for creating similar buttons. When nothing turned up, I figured I would take this opportunity to not only hook myself up with a nice set of buttons for my marketplace items, but to share my buttons so other authors can quickly and easily add some buttons of their own.
Term of Use (yes, there’s just one)
The only thing I ask of authors, is to download the buttons (above) and upload them to your own server. Hot-linking isn’t cool, so please do me this favor. No credit is required to use these buttons.
Here are some example code for inserting the buttons into your profile and item descriptions. If you want equal margins between the images, make sure each is on its own line, with no empty lines between.
