King styles is an easy to use and "What you see is what you get" banner maker with the ability to add, edit and move around any object or text. I love finding goodies and sharing ;)

1) Open in Internet Explorer and click the "Start now" button
2) Set the size to the dimensions of the banner in the style you are using and click "Create"
3) Create your banner... then save...

The cool things about this in your browser banner maker is the wide assortment of resources and output options they have. PNG, GIF or optimized JPG makes it truly versatile and user friendly. The ability to make your banner the exact dimensions or the style you are using is beyond awesome. The ability to use a color, gradient or stripe background... While they only have 8 fonts the style or effect of the text is outta site with the 131 flavors of button looks (Truly an ice cream store of goodies)... Hundreds and hundreds of shapes to make your banners pop and be noticed all with the ability to use the 131 styles that your text uses...

This will I am sure become the favorite banner maker of most who use it... Main banners, side banners, long, tall, square, big, small and everywhere in between. So versatile indeed.

The output feature seems a bit buggy in Firefox and this one I recommend in Internet Explorer so that you don't have to recreate your banner when you find out that you can't save it. Happily I have had no issues in IE.

Hope you enjoy...

Happy site building

Hi Ed,

Thanks for sharing but on this occasion i'll have to disagree, i dont like it.

Every time you try to size the banner to 880 it decides it knows best and creates 1 which is 800!

It would be nice if you could upload an image also.

I stand corrected... The maximum width allowed is 800px wide.

Still a great tool for creating custom site Ad banners and images with custom text that have a background to match the background of your style... A web 2.0 look

I still think its one of the better ones around and even the inability to add a background image is not a negative in my book.

Not to forget the ease at which you can create some pretty cool buttons ;)
