Etsy allows you to create and upload your own banners, shop icons and custom image assets to keep your shop on brand. If you want to leave a lasting impression on your customers and keep them engaged, you should ensure that the images you upload to your Etsy shop are of the highest quality and the optimal size. Since item listings initially appear in smaller thumbnails, and will only open in a larger gallery once clicked, it’s important to ensure that your thumbnail image is compelling for the users.
The Cover Photo is the largest branding asset available and is featured prominently on your Etsy shop. While the minimum size allowed is 1200 x 300 pixels, your cover photo should ideally be 3360 x 840 pixels to ensure that it is as clear as possible and can have maximum impact on your brand.
For best results, your item listing photo should be at least 1000 pixels wide. This is so that when shoppers click the Zoom button, they will be able to see the enlarged image with clarity.
With over forty million items and over a million active sellers to date, Etsy has become a huge e-commerce platform for sellers providing a variety of unique, handmade or vintage goods. But with this much competition, it’s important that you are able to stand out from the crowd when you start your own Etsy store.
