etsy banner

I really wish I had the skills of a graphic designer, because I am feeling slightly obsessed with my Etsy banner right now. In deciding I need to do a huge makeover on my shop, one of my top priorities was to put up a new shop banner. What has happened though is that I am loosing my mind trying to create something I love—I've created a bunch that I sort of "like," but don't "love." Arg! I realize I could pay some nice graphic designer on Etsy to make a banner for me, but I feel like I should be able to make something myself that I'm happy with (not at the caliber of a graphic designer obviously, props to them!). Oh, my unrelenting perfectionism….

So, I thought I'd share a few of the banners I've been tinkering around with. Thoughts?


  1. I think they are all lovely in different ways but feel drawn to the last one...I like its typeface, color scheme and photographs the best. :)

  2. I like them all, but the first one is by far my favorite

  3. AHHH- #2- is perfection!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! (can you tell I'm excited?:)

    I feel you on making it yourself! Its hard when you dont have the skills/programs to do fancy graphic design- but I also find that the blog/etsy banners I like the most are occasionally the really simple ones....

    my vote is #2! then #1 at a close second:)))

  4. thanks so much for the feedback girls!! i appreciate it! :)
