who makes the banners?

Postby Top-notch comix » Thu Oct 15, 2009 2:15 pm

thought I'd ask who makes all the banners for the main site... I always thought it was cool how there are multiple banners for the time of year and/or up coming holidays (right now it's a pumpkin) good job, whoever makes those! :)

Various people have made the banners over the years. I think VariablePenguin made the Halloween banners that are up right now. He did a really good job.

I'd like to get someone to make some banners for some of the holidays we are missing if there are any photoshop experts out there... :?:

I can hold my own with PS, but it's too expensive to buy :( I'll let you know if I ever get it though. I'd be more than happy to make an arbor day banner :lol:

Thanks for the offers guys. You'll are welcome to give it a shot if you want, and anybody else for that matter. Yea, you can use any imaging software you wish. If you want a free one, Gimp is really good and you can download it here:

http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

Here's the specs for the logos:
* It must look professional and fit with the color scheme of the website.
* Must have the text FigureRealm in the logo clearly legible.
* Dimensions must not be bigger than 300w x 60h.

The only 3 holidays we have covered are Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Any other holidays would be welcomed. You could also come up with something more fun that has an action figure twist, like create a logo for the Anniversary day of Star Wars or Transformers or ... ??

You can grab a banner off of this page as a starting point:
