At Desygner, we know the importance of creating a visual story and the concept of brand awareness. Etsy has a variety of special, handcrafted, vintage and unique items. It is important to make a banner that enhances the stores personality. Also, we understand that most of the community of sellers may not have the skillset to create an attention-grabbing banner that encompasses the brand personality and the items being sold.

Through this step by step guide, you will create an attention-grabbing banner for your e-commerce site on Etsy!
