The first things you do with your new company logo is perhaps printing business cards and uploading it as a profile picture to your social media. But did you know you can use your logo as a virtual background in video calls as well?

How to use your own logo as a virtual background

Most video chat apps have a built-in option to select a custom background in your video calls. This is a great way of hiding your messy living room and replace it with a clean background. Often you can choose a solid color, a fancy office or even a tropical island.

That's all fine, but why stop at preset background if you can upload your own branded background? With My Brand New Logo you can create your own logo backgrounds automatically. If you purchase our Professional Logo Package, you'll get the right file that you can use as a virtual background.

Tip: when you preview your video stream and have the mirror option selected, you'll see your logo background mirrored as well. Please know that when you actually have a video call, your logo will be displayed correctly to the other participants. Here are the instructions for various video chat apps:
