Brief updates

30-Sep-11 9:21 a.m. GMT
please make sure the animated banners are smaller than 40KB. Flash or GIFs are ok.

The banners should be product specific and NOT too general about the shop. Please use one set of products for a banner and don't mix products them. We need banners that lead up to a sale on our site. NO branding banners.

I attached Sets of images to work with. 1. Hotel bed linen, 2. whool blankets

For the sake of simplicity: You can use english text. We can change the text later.

We haven't been as responsive as we would have wished. Let's take some time to work on several ideas a little longer. Cheers URBANARA-Team
