After reading Lauren’s article on Handmade Spark this morning at 9:30 am, I decided to again spend time ‘upgrading’ my Etsy Shop by adding a new banner for promoting Valentine’s Day. At 2:00 PM I opened a powerpoint slide and worked and worked and worked…did I say WORKED to make a banner that would not have BLURRY text when saved as a jpg! I visited other shops to view banners and noticed text was NOT blurry in those banners! Why couldn’t I F-I-X mine?! I was about to slit my ‘virtual wrists’ when in desperation I went to the Etsy Forum and typed in ‘banner tutorial’.
I am happy to report that my sanity has been saved! OMGosh!!
