Custom Logo

Bandon supports the use of your custom logo. Make sure your logo file is sized to fit a maximum width of 205 pixels and a maximum height of 400 pixels. For best results, use PNG 24 or 32 to support transparency in your logo. To do this using photoshop, position your logo on a transparent background. Once you have your logo properly set, select File > Save for Web and Devices. Select ‘PNG-24’ from the presets drop down menu. Make sure transparency is selected. (note: bandon requires a logo to be loaded for the site to function properly).
