50 Beautiful YouTube Banner Templates [Edit and Download]

50-beautiful-youtube-banner-templates

One of the best ways to reach your target audience in this digital media age is through a YouTube channel. But you’re likely to lose potential subscribers if the look and feel of your channel doesn’t entice them to stay or reflect the unique values associated with your brand.

Fortunately, you don’t need advanced design skills to create your own beautiful YouTube channel art. You can choose from a variety of easy-to-customize templates across a wide range of categories, including business lessons, travel, cooking, music and design, among others.

To start, all you need to do is follow these steps and then choose from any of the YouTube banner templates below.

 

How to Create YouTube Channel Art

1 Create a free Visme account.

If you haven’t already created a Visme account, you can create one for free here. Then, click on any of the yellow buttons under the templates on this page to choose the specific design that best fits your needs.

 

2 Choose a template.

step-1-social-media

You can also browse through all of the available templates to find designs for your other social media channels, including Twitter headers, Facebook covers, among others. All templates are already sized according to the dimensions recommended by each social network.

 

3 Insert your own text.

step-1-social-media-text

Next, simply click on one of the text boxes and start typing to insert your own text. No need to re-position text boxes since these have been placed exactly so that the text appears centered in your YouTube cover.

 

4 Apply your own colors and fonts.

change-colors

If you wish, you can further customize the look of your cover art by applying your own color scheme and fonts, although this is not necessary since these design elements have been pre-selected to create a specific look and feel.

 

5 Upload the image to your channel.

Once your template has been customized with your own information, you can upload to your YouTube channel. No need to crop or resize, simply upload and save.
