you approach the building

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. -- Confucius

You approach the parking lot and cautiously make your way to the entrance of a small building at the edge of town. Earlier, you received a note telling you to go there. You couldn't decipher who had signed it. The building had a grimy exterior and looked abandoned. Still deciding whenever or not to actually enter, your curiosity gets the better of you and you walk through the door. Slowly, you take a look around and notice a tilted sign in the corner that says One...

Welcome to One, a button request site run by Abigail. One is here for your every button need! Since December 25th 2012, One has been providing stunning buttons for you and your site. My goals for One are to create the highest quality buttons and to make you happy.

request a button?


requests home

Ahh, welcome! An old man says after you enter, Nice to meet you deary, I'm Cedrowy! You must've gotten my letter. I sent them out to a lot of people, but you are the only one to respond. He chuckles. You can go look in the Box if you'd like to take something.


  • You can leave either visible credit or a link on the button to One
  • Please only request when request's sign says they are open!
  • If you actually have read the rules, copy and paste the cat's meow in your form.
  • I will complete requests for under-construction sites, as long as you have a layout up.
  • I will not complete a request for another button request site because I feel as if you should make your own buttons.
  • I will most likely not respond if your request has been accepted. I will however most definitely notify you if I have a question, your request has been rejected, or that it's ready for pickup.
  • If you haven't received a response or weren't put on the waiting list within 48 hours, feel free to resend your request.
  • I do take requests from offsite places, but contact me on my dA, @backtalking.
  • While this is not a 'rule', I'd greatly appreciate if you used my buttons. If you do not like it, neomail me and I can remake your button or put the base to better use.

    You spent much time looking through the Box, when the old man speaks to you. Done lookin'? He says sarcastically. I know just what you need! He walks around the little counter, ducks down, then returns with a smaller, purple box. Take a look in here, what you want is bound to be in there...

    Neomail me when you have picked up your button, button codes are removed after five days.

    Button of the week award

    Emma at The Button Club

    I really love the simplicity of this button. The base is perfectly edited and has a nice, warm, welcoming feel. I *love* the text. I'm still in shock of how you make pixel text look this good! I'm not very good at it myself, tehe. Overall, this is a high-quality beautiful button. I can't wait to see more, Emma!

    Congrats! You've been selected for the Button of the Week Award!
    Feel free to adorn this button on your site!

    hi, my name is abigail

    Hello! I'm Abigail, owner of this fine establishment. My main account is kingwise and I don't own any sides yet. I live now just moved to Georgia United States and I'm used to moving around alot. I'm currently in high school and my least favourite subject is Human Geography. Feel free to drop me a neomail if you'd like to know more.

    On neopets, my main focus is One and getting my avatar count up (that'll happen). I love to draw neopets and other items and playing around in Photoshop since I just got it. Gimp is my life. Photoshop cs6 is fabulous!

    That's it for now.

    Awards and Reviews

    These are all the accomplishments One has received. Thank you so much for everyone that let us get this far!



    Animation Tutorial: Spread

    This tutorial works in Photoshop CS5 and any other version that has the tween and motion blur options. This tutorial has not been tested in gimp!

    Step 1

    In order to start animating, have your base ready!

    Step Two

    Set up your layers so the text is separate from the base like above.

    Step Three

    Duplicate the text layer and make the duplicate invisible like above.

    Step Four

    Motion blur the the visible text layer with the settings above or feel free to experiment.

    Step Five

    Open up the animation window or timeline ( Photoshop CS6). Set it up so the first frame has the clear text, the second frame has the blurred text, and the third frame has the clear text. If done correctly, it'll look like above.

    Step Six

    With the first frame selected, tween with the settings above. Then, select the second to last frame and tween again.

    Step Seven

    Add 10 to 15 blank frames and you're all done!


    Now that yous gotten what you want, Finan says. Yous can tell people about One by using these here buttons or you can visit other people's shops.

    Sister site

    Fiasco is an awesome button request site by Kiwi! Kiwi makes absolutely stunning buttons, and amazing content! Her colouration of the buttons is stellar, the animations are beautiful, and everything complements itself. Please visit Fiasco, I would definitely recommend checking her out and maybe requesting a few buttons!


    Aether is a brand new button request site by my good friend, James (BBY)! James is truly masterful in the ways he makes buttons! They are gorgeous in every way possible and always end up clean. He's super nice and finishes requests really quick. :* I highly recommend Aether!
