One great way to incorporate your brand's assets is to upload a background image to your booth's homepage.

There are a few things you will want to consider when creating your backgrounds for the best experience possible.

Designing Backgrounds

The most important detail to keep in mind while designing is that participants are going to be using all different types of devices with different screen sizes.

You must be mindful about your background design and size to ensure it translates well to any screen size your guests might use.

Full-Screen Backgrounds

Think of full screen backgrounds as a watermark or background element instead of attempting to design an image to replace the background.

Examples That Work Well:

Example That Will Not Work Well:

Graphic elements like the palm trees will not be visible on most mobile devices.

Repeating Backgrounds

Repeating backgrounds are slightly easier to work with in this context. As long as you follow our size recommendations (more information below), your file will show a tiled effect on all types of screen sizes.

Background File Types & Transparency

Use a JPEG or PNG file.

JPEG files do not have any transparency. If you choose a JPEG, the background color will not be affected by any other booth settings.

PNG files can include transparency. If you choose a PNG with transparency, keep in mind that the background color settings will still be displayed behind your graphics.

Background Opacity

Opaque backgrounds (ones with bolder, darker colors) do not always work well for Virtual Booth. Consider this example:

The design is a ton of fun, but the loud pattern makes this booth feel chaotic and the text difficult to read.

Introducing transparency to your design can help you achieve the same effect while maintaining a page that is easy-to-navigate. Our built in opacity tool makes it easy to adjust!

Background Sizing

Full Screen Backgrounds

A range of sizes can be used for full screen backgrounds, but a good starting point is 1920x1080px.

Repeating Backgrounds

A range of sizes can be used for repeating backgrounds. Larger file sizes will result in larger tiles on the page.

You can use any size and aspect ratio you would like. With rectangular files, the longer side should not exceed around 400 pixels.
