Vocal F/X for "Bubble Gum Punk"

Hey guys, been tracking a band in the Blink 182, New Found Glory style of "punk" and the tracks are coming out pretty good. Been A/Bing against the afore mentioned bands during the process and things seem to be in the ballpark. We'll be mixing in about 2 weeks.
I'm not a big fan of this type music nor do I do many bands that are good at it (these guys are pretty good for this brand of music) so I'm looking for some info on the vocal sounds. Aside from the obvious Autotuning and possible Eventide magic, I'm looking for some suggestions.

Thanks!!

Just keep it pretty straight forward and dry, and focus on getting tight harmonies--vocalign would help here.

Other than that I haven't really heard too much in terms of effects in this genre.

I hope that helps!

One thing that I have seen done on some pop punk vocals is this (assuming PT, but also possible in other formats):
Send the vox track to an aux fader and on that fader have a pitch plugin that is +4 cents on the left and -4 cents on the right. Also, you could try putting something like the waves S1 stereo thingy on as well to spread it out. Just tuck this in under the vox track and it will thicken up nicely w/o being too noticeable. Other than that keep it dry and compressed, but not too dry.

That is bassically a low-rent version of the eventide thing..
