A New Banner!

I decided to invest in a new banner for my craft markets this season. I decided to use Vistaprint even though I've heard not the best things about their business cards. (Should you care to know about that, I swear by overnightprints.com for those.) So, I was pleasantly surprised when I unrolled the banners and both looked pretty good. Better yet I won't have to worry about my sign getting wet anymore. My previous sign was a thick white cardboard and was looking a little ratty.

But now, I need your help. I decided to do one vertical and one horizontal design to make sure that I had the look I wanted for the upcoming season. I'm not going to tell you which one I favor, and let you pick. Problem is, I can't decide which looks better. You know that feeling you get when you're too close to a design to properly assess it?? That's the way I feel.

Vertical Banner



Horizontal Banner



So, give me a hand by commenting, and I'll be forever grateful!!

The colors in the vertical banner definately draw my attention moreso than the second banner. I also love kid face shots, but I find they distract from the clothing and for that same reason, the shirt in the first banner makes me want to look closer at what you are selling.

I definitely like the vertical one, especially with the printing over part of the photo. I think the horizontal one reminds me of a Christmas card from the photo lab

Vertical banner does your creations more justice and I agree that the horizontal looks a little Christmas card-ish.

Vertical is great for business but the horizontal one cracks me up....what a cutie pie! But as someone mentioned you want to bring attention to the business so I vote vertical!

I prefer the vertical one which focuses more on the clothes.
