Etsy - How to Add a Shop Banner

Thursday, April 5, 2018


Revised 3/26/19

If you wish to display your Etsy shop's branding with an image at the top of your shop, you have the option of displaying two sizes:  Big Banner or a Mini Banner. **

  • A Big Banner (previously called "Cover Photo") is the large image that spreads across the page.
  • A Mini Banner is smaller and also spreads across the page but is only about 1/2 the height of the Big Banner.  One advantage of the Mini Banner is that your Shop Icon will not overlap it when viewed on smartphones.

** If you still have the older small banner that is 760 x 100 displayed on your shop front, you have been "grandfathered in" for displaying this size banner on your shop front.  It appears that as long as you don't ever upload one of the larger banners, you can maintain this smaller size and continue to switch it out seasonally if you wish.  It is uploaded at Shop Manager > Settings > Info & Appearance. 

Note:  For branding on your Order Receipt or Packing Slip, see directions at the end of this article.

 

TO ADD, CHANGE OR DELETE A BIG OR MINI BANNER

1.  Go to your shop front page, and click the Edit Shop button 

2.  Depending on what you currently have displayed:

  • If you have no banner, click the + symbol at the top of the page next to "Banner to showcase your brand and listings."
  • If you already have a banner, click the pencil icon in the lower right of the banner.  If nothing happens at this point, click anywhere on the banner to begin editing.  Click "Change Layout" in upper left.

3.  A pop-up window appears with these options if you are on the Standard Etsy Plan:  Big Banner, Mini Banner, or None.  Follow these directions to add, change or delete:

BIG BANNER DIRECTIONS (minimum 1200 x 300 . . . maximum 3360 x 840)

  • Tick the circle next to Big Banner
  • Click Done
  • Click "Add an image" in center of screen, then locate and upload image from your computer or device
  • Click Save
  • Click View Shop

           

MINI BANNER DIRECTIONS (minimum 1200 x 160 . . . maximum 3360 x 448)

  • Tick the circle next to Mini Banner
  • Click Done
  • Click "Add an image" in center of screen, then locate and upload image from your computer or device
  • Click Save
  • Click View Shop

TO DELETE:  Choose None, Done, Save, View Shop.

 

ADDING A BANNER TO ORDER RECEIPT AND/OR PACKING SLIP (minimum 760x100 or any larger dimension that maintains the same ratio.)

This banner is what was previously referred to as a Small Banner.  It can no longer be displayed on your shop front,** but you may customize your Order Receipt and/or Packing Slip to display this banner at the top of the page.

  • Go to Shop Manager - Settings - Info & Appearance
  • Click Browse next to Order Receipt Banner
  • Upload your image which must be 760 x 100 pixels (or any larger dimension that maintains the same ratio).  It won't be visible until you scroll down and . . .
  • Click Save Changes
  • Next time you print an Order Receipt or Packing Slip, click Customize options, and tick "Order receipt banner."

** Exception:  If you currently have a small banner on your shop front, you have been grandfathered in.  It appears that you may continue to use this size including changing it out seasonally at Shop Manager > Settings > Info & Appearance, but if you ever change to a Big or Mini banner, you most likely won't be able to return to the small banner.
