Blog Feature!

I was recently contacted about doing a giveaway for a blog and I said sure! I had no problem. So soon enough she said that she would "review" me as well. I began to ask her what she needed and she needed a new identity for herself and her company so I was happy to help!

She didn't exactly know what she wanted, all she knew was that she loved owls and she loved gemstones. I had a bit of trouble making the perfect owl for her but eventually I made one that she loved. I then began my work and turned it into an OOAK (one of a kind) logo! 

After she okay'd my proof I made her a matching etsy set for her shop! It included a new banner, avatar, custom listing and thank you graphic for her feedback.

Once everything was finished she posted it up on her etsy. You can find her here She has wonderful creations! Oh! Get this! The review is finally up! You can read it here It is also a giveaway! So go and enter to win your own custom shop set!

A great Etsy Banner

You have just set up your Etsy Business and now you need a banner, and you are not sure what you want. Here are some tips:
  1. With your banner design give your customer a good idea of what they will find in your shop.
  2. Make sure your banner ties in with the colors and branding of your business. I love using images from the customers products.
  3. Use your banner to share more about your business WITHOUT making your banner to busy..Don't OVERFILL your banner with to much information.
  4. It is okay to look at all of the similar business banners out like your business. Don't try to imitate their designs make sure you do something DIFFERENT.
  5. A Great banner means nothing without a great product images. Make sure you take great photos. FotoFuse is an awesome tool.
Once you feel you have answered these questions Check out my etsy shop and
