Make your Etsy shop look professional and build trust with shoppers, by uploading quality images to represent you and your business. Etsy sellers can add the following images to make their shop look great and make a lasting impression with shoppers.
A cover photo, also known as a shop cover, is used by Etsy sellers who want to really grab the attention of shoppers. It is the largest branding image that can be added to a shop. It displays at the top of the shop homepage and can be seen when a shop is viewed from a desktop computer, laptop or mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet. Displaying a cover photo is optional.
The best size for a cover photo is 3360 x 840 pixels. To add a cover photo go to Your shop > Edit shop. Click Display a cover photo to highlight your brand.

A banner, also known as a shop banner or Etsy banner, is used by sellers who prefer to display a smaller branding image and have their listings to appear higher on the page. Like the cover photo it shows at the of the shop home page, but it is considerably smaller and only displays when a shop is viewed from a desktop computer or laptop. It does not show on mobile devices. Displaying a banner is optional.
Banners measure 760 x 100 pixels. To add a banner go to Your shop > Edit shop. Click Display your banner.

A shop icon is used by Etsy sellers. It always displays on the shop homepage and individual listing pages near the top left. It can be seen when a shop is viewed from a desktop computer, a laptop or a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet. Shop icons are not optional. If you do not upload an image, a default image will display. The shop icon is a great place to use your logo.
Shop Icons measure 500 x 500 pixels. To add a shop icon go to Your shop > Edit Shop and click the camera icon next to the shop illustration.

Profile Picture/Shop Owner Photo
All Etsy members, regardless of whether they are a buyer or seller, are encouraged to upload a profile picture. It is used to represent you as a person and shows in a variety of places around Etsy, including on your profile page, when you post in the forums and send Etsy convos. For sellers, it also shows as the shop owner photo. This is a great place to use a photo of yourself. However, some sellers prefer to use an image of their handmade or a professional character.
The image you upload for your profile picture must be at least 400 x 400 pixels. To add a profile picture, go to You > Account settings > Public profile.
Now that you know the difference between a cover photo, banner, shop icon and profile picture, it is time for you to start thinking about how you would like your shop to look and which images would best reflect your shop’s personality or brand.
