Woo hoo, I finally opened an Etsy store for my hubby's segmented wood vases. Now I need a banner but have no clue how to make one! I have photoshop, but I'm not very proficient at it.
Jane, go to the digital point forum and ask around. When I need banner or logo work done, I search there first and I usually get it done for less than a few dollars and in many cases only a couple hours.
I see this is a very old post and it even warns against replying to it. However if you need help or ever will I can use my programs to pitch in and give you a hand. I use Photoshop CS5 and well, all the rest of the Adobe programs as well. I have a ad on the hub site
Sounds exciting getting his business off and running. His vases sound interesting...are you going to do a hub-page about it? Hope you find some help with your banner:)
Have a read you can use a width 600px and a height of 200px:
Always create a new layer so yo can move things around

I found my Etsy banner for $4 from one of the other Etsy sellers. I generally try to do things on my own, but in the end I got a banner I really like that I probably would have spent a couple of hours dinking around trying to figure out how to make. It can't hurt to check out the offerings around the site if you have a couple bucks to spare .
Apparently, I forgot to pay my bill!
The people who hang around in the
bst threads at digital point are very good and very underpaid.
These guys got some good reviews in the warrior forum a while back. I haven't used them yet, but I intend to give them a shot as their prices are very good.
You can use Photoshop and Image Ready to make an animated gif to use as a banner but I am quite rusty too
I'd be happy to help you! I'll even do it for free if you'll send people my way!

Hi Jane, you could also try to use Canva.com.They have a few really nice social media templates. It might be easier to work off a template. Good luck to your hubby with the store. Super exciting. If you want royalty free images to add to the banner, try Pixabay.com.
Hi, thank you for the tips! I'll be sure to tell John about Canva.com and its great social media templates. Working with templates is a godsend! I wish your husband the best of luck with the store, it's so exciting! If you need free, copyright-free images for your banner, check out Pixabay.com.

Lately there is much buzz about etsy being a great way for artisans to market products. I was just wondering if any fellow hubbers are also on etsy and what you think of it, how it is working for you.

I have sold my paintings on ebay before, and I was wondering if etsy.com might be a better way to go? Has anyone else had success on this site or could offer advice as to how to sell paintings online?

We did it! We opened an Etsy store to sell my husbands segmented wood turned vases. There is a lot of work to setting up an Etsy store! I want to thank everyone who has commented or emailed me about his wood vases that I feature in one of my hubs - your comments and feedback...
