    I need a banner for a Blog. The size is 960 X 246 with the Main Text of "24 X 7 Las Vegas" with a subtitle of "News & Reviews". Both should be shown without the quotes.

    Image for this banner can be found here: http://aivacations.com/vegas-skyline.jpg
    SEMrush
    I'm looking for clean and easy to read text. Please replace the text currently on the supplied banner which is a licensed image.

    Contest Ends June 14th at 9PM Pacific Time. Winner will be promptly paid $15.00 via PayPal.

    Need the graphic in .PSD format.

    Any questions, feel free to ask. Feedback gladly given.

    Olli: Feel free to place the text anywhere on the image. It looks pretty plain to me.
    bennyjh: Design is nice, but I need my licensed image as the background please. You are on the right road with the text size and placement.

    paladin884: It is ok, but this is Las Vegas. Too plain. Think bold!
    Olli: I appreciate your revision, but your first try was much better.

    crd: This is the best entry yet. I would insert spaces after 24, X and probably double space after the 7. I think Las Vegas would stand out more this way??

    voltage777 - Good Las Vegas user name! :) The image got cropped at the bottom. Are you able to go back to the original image. Your text style looks pretty good. I would like to see what you mean by vintage effect to the image and I did like the text effect, sparkles I guess that cdr did.

    justcoolsam: I like your first entry the best. My only remark is the color of the top line of text could be brighter. Maybe change to a true red or similar. Thanks!
