Perfect banner size

The recommended YouTube header size is 2560 x 1440 pixel, but you don't have to worry about sizing requirements and image quality. In Creatopy, all templates are made to perfectly fit YouTube’s header requirements. Focus all your main elements in the middle of your design for better performance.


What size is a YouTube banner?

To make sure your banner looks good on various devices, it’s advisable to use the recommended size of 2560 x 1440 px, while keeping in mind that the safe area for text and logos will be 1546 x 423 pixels. Remember to place important info within this zone, so it doesn’t get cropped. Use a high-resolution image to emphasize on the quality of the materials that you’re going to upload. With the help of our banner maker, incorporate visual elements that go with your brand, and don’t forget to keep the text to the minimum.

What is the best font for YouTube banners?

Here are a few great fonts you can use: Impact, Bebas, Roboto, Bangers, Badaboom BB, Budmo, Anton, Lilita One, Ultra, or Fire Sans Extra Bold. Your YouTube header background is the first thing a user will see when they land on your channel’s homepage, so you want to make sure you use a font that’s legible and stands out. When picking your font, make sure it fits your video content’s style and your brand.

Can YouTube banners be animated?

YouTube changed the supported file types for channel banners, which means that you can still upload a GIF file as a YouTube channel art, but it will be displayed as a static image.
