The last couple of days I have been trying to figure out how to improve my http://www.junucreations.etsy.com/ banner. I was about to purchase a pre-made banner, however, I frequently change my mind and thus a purchased banner would not suit my personality. Therefore, I went about learning how to create my own.
I first googled - how to create an Etsy banner and web results were very helpful in starting me off. Web results included creating and changing my banner background. OK, I did stumbled on this. How was I going to create an appealing background for my banner. I am not a graphic designer. Then I realized, I could download a background and use http://www.photoscape.org/ps/main/index.php to create my banner. I searched on the web for free backgrounds and saved them. I used Photoscape to re size my background. I believe the size for an Etsy banner is 760x100. Once I re sized my saved banner I entered my shop name using fonts I downloaded from http://www.dafont.com/.
I was very satisfied with conquering this task. I am now able to improve my shop and hopefully create a huge audience.
