Making a Custom Google Forms Banner with Google Drawings

Earlier this month, Google updated Google Forms so we can now customize the look of a form.  Since I'm all about the snazz, I immediately took to this!  I just made a template for a banner to share out to my staff with some directions on how to get started.  Took some screenshots along the way and included those on the template as well.

EXAMPLE: I was creating a sign up form for a PowerTeacher Gradebook training in my building.  Here's the final form below with custom banner I whipped up using Google Drawings...


Banners just have to be 1200 pixels wide by 300 pixels tall (like Google+ Event or Hangout on Air custom banners).  

Here's a link to the Google Drawing Banner Template I made.  The template contains directions and screenshots for how to set up a custom banner.  If you like this, save it to a Google Drive folder of yours for access later!  Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for the template Chad! I just did the same thing, but had to play with the canvas size to make it fit properly in the form. I love Google Draw!

  2. Appreciate you creating this. Fits in well with surveys that teachers need to complete for a number of items in the classroom. Will be using it as our Lunch N' Learn this week. Again, thank you for creating and more importantly SHARING!

  6. This is great. ..thank you! Once we have made our custom banner, is it possible to make it available to everyone in our organization so that they can select it as one of the available themes from within Google forms?

  7. Not to my knowledge unfortunately. My assumption is they will add some kind of 'template' in Google Forms at some point in the future but not currently possible now that I know of...
