When you stream on Twitch, there are quite a few ways to make your channel stand out and showcase your personality. A cleverly designed Twitch BRB screen is the perfect opportunity to do just that.

Without a doubt, graphics play a huge part in the branding of your stream and the impression it leaves on viewers (new and old). This is why many streamers, especially those who want to turn streaming into a livelihood or career, want their channel graphics to look unified and consistent.

It’s true – a well-branded and visually pleasing channel will leave a better impression on new viewers, increasing their chances of coming back and growing your stream.

But what part does a Twitch BRB screen play in all of this?

Well, there are several reasons why BRB screens can be helpful. They help your channel look good and also help make streaming easier and more convenient for you.

Let’s take a look at your top 7 options for getting your next BRB screen for your Twitch channel.



Free options available? No

Fiverr is very well known as a resource for all sorts of things. Need a logo created? Fiverr has those available. Emotes? Yup, they’ve got them too. Overlays for your webcam, BRB screens, alerts, transitions, and more are all on Fiverr.

You won’t be able to find any free content here since everyone has listed their gigs for specific prices. However, you’ll likely find stream content at various prices, ranging from really affordable ($5) to rather pricey ($50 and up).

If you do decide to order something from Fiverr, it’s always a good idea to check the seller’s ratings and past work. Doing this will help give you peace of mind as it can prevent you from dealing with contractors that are less than ideal.


Free options available? Yes

Streamplay.com is one of the most popular resources for stream graphics and overlays these days. Their streamlined website lists many thematic options that look and feel great for really affordable prices.

You can find literally everything you possibly need for your channel: alert sounds, Twitch overlays, stream packages, panel graphics, alert graphics, transition scenes, and more.

Prices are generally affordable for intermission screen setups, ranging from $3.99 to $9.99. The pricier BRB screens often have more features and more intensive designs and are often animated.

Purchasing from Streamplay.com gives you all the finished files and editable source files just in case you want to make some changes.

However, if you are unable to make the edits yourself, you can pay a small fee (ranging from one to ten dollars) for Streamplay.com to make the edits for you. All you have to do is tick the option “We Edit for You” as you add your choice to the cart.

If you want to customize your Twitch graphics fully (without the need for any apps or editing software), then Placeit.net is the best choice for you.

Placeit is incredibly well known for being the website to go if you want to get customized designs (from templates) and various Print-on-Demand merchandise. Placeit also eventually added the ability to create custom streaming graphics, which is why they made it onto this list.

While there are some free options on Placeit.net, the best designs are, of course, the ones that cost a bit of money. Some free downloads leave the Placeit.net watermark on the graphic, which is not ideal if you want to make your stream look presentable.


Placeit.net has a unique model where you can purchase your customized graphics piecemeal for $2.95 each. Alternatively, you can subscribe for $14.95/month to get unlimited access to all of their designs. A yearly subscription is also available for $89.69.

Why Use a Twitch BRB Screen?

While BRB or intermission screens aren’t essential, you might still want to consider adding them to your production. After all, intermission screens help you by:

  • Allowing you to get up from your streaming and AFK without worrying what people can see in the background.
  • Letting you take a short break to gather yourself and un-tilt from a particularly frustrating game.
  • Making your stream look more streamlined and professional.
  • Allowing you to put announcements on the BRB/intermission screen so viewers can see it while you are away.
  • Helping to inform new viewers of who you are and what your stream is about.
  • Letting you display your social media handles and where else the viewers can find you.

If you’re wondering where you can get some good Twitch BRB screen options, you’d be glad to know that there are tons of options.

Some are premium and cost a small amount of money, and others are absolutely free. You just need to know where to look! This article will help you find the best sources for your BRB screens.
