You can certainly create a banner yourself. These days it’s getting easier and easier to DIY your own graphic designs. However, there are advantages to hiring an Etsy graphic designer. Here are a few reasons:
- We’re fast. Most of us can design a banner and other marketing materials for your store in about a week.
- You’re critical. Most of what you make for yourself you will dislike. It’s very hard to design for yourself and be happy with the end result.
- We’re trained professionals. This is what we do. There are dozens of talented designers in Etsy’s “Everything Else” section. There are readymade and custom banners available in all colors and styles.
- You have a busy schedule. It’s midnight and you just finished folding the laundry. You’re exhausted and need some help getting your business rolling.
- We’re reasonably priced. Yes, graphic design on Etsy is plentiful and inexpensive. Your fellow Etsy designer will charge anywhere from $50-150 for a logo design. Your profession designer from the Yellow Pages will probably charge $400-500.
