How Do I Make a Banner for My Discord Server?


Heather Bennett

Are you looking to make your Discord server stand out? One great way to do that is by creating a custom banner.

A well-designed banner can help convey the theme and personality of your server, making it more attractive to potential members. In this tutorial, we will show you how to make a banner for your Discord server using simple HTML elements.

Step 1: Choose the Right Size

Before you start designing your banner, it’s important to know the dimensions required for Discord banners. The recommended size for a server banner is 960 pixels wide and 540 pixels tall. Keep in mind that banners can be larger or smaller than these dimensions, but Discord will automatically resize them to fit within this range.

Step 2: Create a New HTML Document

To get started, open your favorite HTML editor or simply create a new HTML document in a text editor. You can name it something like “discord-banner.html”.

Step 3: Set Up the Document Structure

In every HTML document, we need to define the basic structure using tags such as <html>, <head>, and <body>. Let’s set up our document structure:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>How to Make a Banner for My Discord Server</title>
        /* Add some CSS styling if needed */

Step 4: Add the Banner Image

To add an image as your banner, we will use the <img> tag with the source attribute pointing to the image file. Place the following code inside the <body> tag:

<img src="your-banner-image.jpg" alt="Server Banner">

Replace “your-banner-image.jpg” with the actual file name and extension of your banner image. Make sure to keep the image file in the same directory as your HTML document, or provide the correct path if it’s located elsewhere.

Step 5: Add Text Overlays

To make your banner more informative and visually appealing, you can add text overlays. We will use the <h1>, <h2>, and <p> tags for different headings and paragraphs. Here’s an example:

<h1><b>Welcome to Our Discord Server!</b></h1>
<p><u>Join our community and have fun chatting with like-minded people.</u></p>
<p>Feel free to explore our various channels and engage in exciting discussions.</p>

In this example, we have used <b> for bold text, <u> for underlined text, and plain <p> tags for regular paragraphs. You can modify the content and styling according to your preference.

Step 6: Save and View Your Banner

Once you have added all the necessary elements, save your HTML document. Open it with a web browser to see how your banner looks.

Tips for Designing an Effective Banner:

  • Keep it simple: Avoid cluttering your banner with too much text or images. A clean and minimalistic design often works best.
  • Choose a color scheme: Use colors that match your server’s theme or branding.

    Consistency is key to creating a visually appealing banner.

  • Use high-quality images: Make sure your banner image is clear and high-resolution. Blurry or pixelated images can make your banner look unprofessional.
  • Experiment with fonts and typography: Play around with different font styles, sizes, and weights to find the right combination for your text overlays.

With these steps, you can easily create a custom banner for your Discord server using HTML elements. Remember to regularly update your banner to keep it fresh and engaging for both new and existing members. Happy designing!
