I'm looking to make some banners/buttons for linking purposes and I was just wondering if there are "standard" sizes that tend to get used. I'm gonna make a few sizes/variations but I thought I would check if there are any common sizes that I should be looking at in particular?

There's the 88 X 31 (give or take 2 pixels) link button that seems to be popular for partner purposes :D

thanks guys, I think I was looking more for buttons more than banners lol, something a little smaller than most of the ones suzie mentioned - didn't make myself clear lol

I think I will be just making a couple of designs and do various sizes and let people choose.

most link/affiliate buttons are the standard 88x31 as joebert suggested. Rat does alot of affiliate buttons and stuff he could help you out there.

yeah, I wonder just how the 88x31 dimension got established anyway

90x60 is also sort of common for small ones

the standard buttons sizes from what i've always known to be are 88x31 and 120x60. Banners are generally 468x60.

For advertisting, I'm used to 88x31 and 468x60(unless you use frames or something...sideway scrolling is annoying). I see 88x31 a lot more often nowadays.

heehee, yeah, I noticed that too and have no intention to register to see the examples, since I can figure out the sizes in pixels on my own...but they all looked about right to me.

because if you use a pixel font at 8px, you can fit text on it nicely

Yeah rat, that's the size that pretty much just a lot of young girls use... and most of those girls are pre-teens from the USA, so I'm not surprised that rtm223 has never/rarely seen them.

That's why I said "most." When I was younger I was into the "zine world" where hundreds or thousands of young girls made e-zines with various topics. And believe you me, they were OBSESSED with those tiny little buttons. I think it first started when some website came up with the "feeling" buttons that were that size, and had stuff on them like "happy" or "sad" or whatever. IMood, I believe the site was called, and similar sites. After that all these girls each made, literally, hundreds of them and redistributed them to all their zine members. They would have moods, or band names, or their names, etc.
