Etsy - How to Add a Shop Banner



Updated  05/31/2021

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, Etsy has changed its layout and now that banner is distorted and shifted to the left side of the screen.  It is advised to design and upload a Mini or Big Banner to properly display your branding. 

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 (recommended 1600 x 400 . . . maximum 3360 x 840, maintaining aspect ratio of 4:1)

  • 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 (recommended 1600 x 213 . . . maximum 3360 x 448, maintaining aspect ratio of 7.5:1)

  • 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.  However, with Etsy's recent layout change (January 2021), that banner is now distorted and shifted to the left side of the screen.  It is advised to design and upload a Mini or Big Banner to properly display your branding.

resize an image

Hello, new to Etsy here! I have an Image I'm trying to add for a big banner and I believe the pixel size is off? I checked Get info on the image and it's dimensions are showing 3024 x 3024... Can you help me resize? or direct me on how to solve my problem? Thanks so much!!

Yes, I'd be happy to help you

Yes, I'd be happy to help you with your image. Your dimensions show that your image is square, but the banner needs to be much much wider than it is tall. You can crop a section out of your banner or incorporation your square image into a wide template.

If you want to send the image to me, I can show you what I mean with a crop or placing your current image into a blank template.

Its really nice article and

I follow exactly that process 50 times. To edit my first banner. Always failed, and receive a message...: Darn, something went wrong uploading yours image . Please try again later...
Do you have any advise? Thanks in advance ...

Re: I follow exactly that process

Yes! If you can send me your image via my Contact page, I'll take a look at it and see if I can diagnose the problem. If there is no option to attach an image, send me a note anyway, that way we can start communicating privately via email.

Thats a good sharing, I would love to subscribe your Blog but I can't see any tab to subscribe your blog.

Changing banner pic

Im having major difficulties changing my banner.

I've logged in through both the app and from a web browser.

I am able to click the pencil under sales channel beside my shop name.

Then, I get taken to a bright yellow page saying I can't update it via app or to change my profile via a web browser. I dont know what I'm missing here.

I've changed it once months and months ago but really need it to be updated to reflect newer work.

Thank you

Hello,

I don't recommend changing your banner from your phone. Try to upload from a computer, and be sure the dimensions are accurate. If you aren't sure about your dimensions, feel free to send me your image and I'll check sizing. If you use my Contact link, we can communicate via email easier.

Very helpful Aunt Susan,

Very helpful Aunt Susan, thanks for providing these details. Now I can setup my business banner in Etsy.
