Whether you're looking for a classic, flat design or something with a bit more depth, look no further

The Flat Button stack gives you the power to build beautiful buttons for all of your sites, whether you're using a pre-built theme or a framework like Foundry. This stack gives you a lot of different settings for customizing the look and feel to match your site and meet your needs.

Quick look

Before we check out the sample buttons, let's have a look at some of the highlights of what Flat Button 2 can do for us when creating our web pages.



Build classic buttons with a flat styling. These buttons will look right at home on your pages for years to come.


Stand Out

Flat Button 2 allows you to add depth to your buttons using gradients and drop shadows to help your buttons stand out.



Use icons, the universal language, to help your buttons pop. You can choose from over 300 different FontAwesome icons.


Choose the size of your button by setting a custom height. You can also adjust the padding on the left- and right-hand side of your button label for both the Standard and Responsive width modes.


Well Rounded

Choose to round the corners of your button, or leave them squared off. You can round all of the corners the same or choose a different border radius for each corner.



The Flat Button stack allows you to align your button to the left, center or right. You can also choose to place your optional icon on either the left- or right-hand side of the button.



Choose from 5 different width modes to get the right setup for your buttons, no matter your page’s design.



Add a border to your button for another style. Adjust the border’s color to match your design.


Lone Icon

Choose to disable the button’s label and you can have a button that consists of an icon alone.



Pick a font from our list of web safe fonts, or chose Custom to specify your own label font.


See what's possible

Below we’ve built several different examples so you can get a quick idea of what the Flat Button 2 stack is capable of creating. These are just a few of the many designs you can create!

The Basics

Created using the default stylings of the Flat Button stack, without an icon. We're using the Responsive width setting so we get a basic button display on the desktop and full width buttons at the mobile breakpoint.


Flat Button 2 allows you to add an icon to your button, placing it on either the left- or right-hand side of the button. There are over 300 different icons to choose from include in the stack. You can size and color the icon independent of the main button area.

Adding Depth

We’ve added some depth to Flat Button 2! You can now create gradient buttons as well as add nice drop shadows that help separate your buttons and make them really pop. You can fine tune both gradients for both their normal state as well as for the hover state.


Build buttons with borders. Beautiful borders. Combine them with solid colors, gradients, or no color whatsoever. You can build a wide variety of different looks just by adding a border to your button!


With Flat Button 2 you can opt to forego the text label and use just an icon. This makes for nice, standalone buttons with the universal language of iconography. We’ve used the Standard width mode for these standalone icon buttons.

Size Matters

With the Flat Button 2 stack you can choose the height of your button, which impacts the overall size of your button and its icon, if you’re using one. In the Standard and Responsive modes you can choose too add a little extra padding to the sides of your button label as well.


Below we’ve created several additional buttons for you to check out, all using different style settings found in the Flat Button stack. Flat Button 2 includes a plethora of features that will help you to get a button that is just right for your project. We look forward to seeing what button designs you cook up!


We offer a wide variety of settings that allow you to perfect the look and feel of the buttons.
