TpT School: How to brand your TpT store

I have seen lots of questions in Facebook groups and on the TpT seller forum regarding logos, shop banners, rotating quote banners, and product covers - so I thought I'd write a post to help you all out.

I know when I was a newbie, I didn't have a clue how to add branding or the sizes of anything - especially the circle logos! I definitely did NOT know how to create or install a rotating quote banner (basically a GIF) - so after learning the hard way, I thought I'd share my experience with you so you can learn the easy way! ;)

In this post you will find instructions on how to add branding to your TpT store, the dimensions of logos, banners and covers so they'll fit perfectly, how to add a rotating quote banner, as well as blank templates which you can edit and use.

If you're lucky - I might even throw in an example of a generic shop banner and a rotating quote banner that you can use to decorate your store, or just to use as practice whilst following the tutorial.


We'll begin with the dimensions you need...

Square Product Covers
- 2400px x 2400px
- 20.32cm x 20.32cm
- 8in x 8in

Logo for Profile
- 1000px x 998px
- 8.47cm x 8.45cm
- 3.333in x 3.327in

Store Banner
- 718px x 90px
- 6.08cm x 0.76cm
- 2.392in x 0.3in

Store Column Banner
- 160px x 200px
- 0.533cm x 0.667cm
- 1.35in x 1.69in

Rotating Quote Banner (GIF) or Still Quote Banner (without frames)
- 452px x 157px
- 15.95cm x 5.54cm
- 6.278in x 2.181in

How to add to your store (using the new Dashboard)

Adding a Store Banner and/or Column Banner:

Dashboard > Marketing > Customize > Upload Leaderboard Banner (store banner) or Store Page Column Banner in .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, or .png formats > Add a link you’d like your graphics to direct if clicked, but it cannot be outside of TPT.


Adding a Logo:

Dashboard > Edit Profile (found next to your store name) > Choose a photo file to upload. Supported File Types: .bmp, .gif, jpg, .jpeg, .png, .tif, .tiff. Max File Size: 5Mb.

Adding a Rotating Quote Banner:

Upload your GIF to any picture sharing site, I use TinyPic. Then, copy the ‘Direct Link for Layouts’, and add to this code:

<img src="YOUR LINK" alt="END OF LINK" width="450" height="200" />

Example: <img src="http://i67.tinypic.com/2nqxsfc.gif" alt="2nqxsfc.gif" width="450"height="200" />

Now, to add the code to your quote box...

Dashboard > Edit Profile (found next to store name) > Add the code with your TinyPic link to the section - ‘Personal Quote’ - and head on over to your store to check it out. (you can view mine here)
