If you are looking for overlays for your stream, one of the first place people recommend checking out is Fiverr. But is Fiverr good for stream overlays? Is it legit? I cover that and more below.
What Services Does Fiverr Offer For Streamers?
Fiverr offers a variety of services for streamers such as logo creation, overlays, music, alerts, emotes, sub badges, and stream promotion.
Although Fiverr isn’t a website dedicated specifically to streaming, it still has everything you could possibly need as a streamer.
In fact, many streamers who are searching for custom-made overlays and graphics for their stream will often go to Fiverr to find an artist they resonate with.
However, unlike other websites, you have to be a little more cautious when working with free-lancers on Fiverr, especially for things like stream promotions. Let’s talk more about that.
Is Fiverr Legit For Twitch?
Fiverr has tons of legitimate artists willing to create overlays, graphics, and other art for streamers; however, not all artists on the platform are legitimate. For this reason it’s best to work with people who have good reviews if you are worried about being scammed.
I have used Fiverr in the past for branding on my Twitch stream and for this website and never had any issues. The artists were reliable and delivered what I had paid them for.
However, I did make sure that the free-lancers I used had good reviews before using them. Also, with Fiverr, you don’t pay the free-lancer until after the work is delivered and you are satisfied.
This means that if the free-lancer never delivers or does not produce a product that is up to your standards then you do not have to pay. This greatly reduces the likelihood of you getting scammed on the platform.
In my opinion, Fiverr can be trusted for streaming related content like overlays and graphics, but I would not commission people on Fiverr to do things like promote your stream.
In most cases, those who offer to “promote” your Twitch stream will be doing so in a way that goes against Twitch’s Terms Of Service (TOS).
If they are offering to promote your stream on various social media platforms that is fine, but anyone who is offering you view bots or chat bots should be avoided.
View bots and chat bots on Twitch can get your channel suspended or even banned. Even though these offers seem enticing, I would avoid them as they could ultimately be detrimental to your stream.
As far as promoting your stream on social media goes, just be careful. Make sure that if you decide to go this route that the person you are using is legit with legit social media platforms.
I still advise against this though as I feel that these views will be short-lived and that it’s better for people to find you from the content YOU have created. But this is just my opinion.
But all in all, stream promotion is a small part of Twitch content on Fiverr as most people are looking for artists for overlays. So let’s talk more about the overlays and artists on Fiverr.
Are The Overlays & Graphics On Fiverr Good?
The overlays and graphics on Fiverr are some of the best in the entire streaming industry. With Fiverr you are able to choose from hundreds of artists who are willing and able to create anything you have in mind. You will pay more for overlays on Fiverr, but that is because the quality is better.
You can check out some of the Twitch artists on Fiverr here, and you will quickly see how talented some of these artists are.
Having tried other websites for overlays like OWN3D.TV, I would say that overall Fiverr does have better overlays and graphics.
But the catch is these overlays are a little more complicated to setup and you have to go through the hassle of finding an artist you like.
However, once you find an artist you like, you can pretty much have them do anything you want related to your brand / stream.
I also like using artists on Fiverr over a talented artist on Twitter or Instagram because you are far less likely to be scammed on Fiverr since you have to approve of the work before you pay and you have some protections through the platform.
So overall the Fiverr overlays are better, but it just might take a little more searching to find an artist you like who can create the design you are looking for.
Is Fiverr Worth It For Twitch?
Fiverr is absolutely worth it for Twitch. With Fiverr you are able to find an artist you resonate with and can find overlays and graphics at varying prices.
Unlike other websites that sell overlays, you can get the exact overlay you want at a price you like. Most other sites will sell their pre-made overlays for around $20 a piece.
But these overlays are pre-made and don’t allow you to make many customizations. If you are more of an advanced streamer, and are looking for unique overlays that fit the branding of your stream, then Fiverr is your best choice.
You can also find people on social media, but you will want to use someone who has a good reputation so you can avoid being scammed.
I like Fiverr for overlays and graphics on Twitch, I just wouldn’t use them for things like channel promotions.
