    -------------- text to include in banner somehow - make it stand out ----------

    -------------- end images ---------------------------------------------------

    **** Images - these could be put side by side just to show the different variety
    **** Images - you should/could separate the big case image and show those side by side (no need to show 6 different smaller parts of the image )

    here is my silly mockup - but you have to IMPRESS ME!
    http://www.salonhive.com/images/BannerImages/mockup1.jpg

    - Use my site colors (get them from the overall look/logo from my site: salonhive.com)
    - use nice colors to put the message across
    - Use your imagination!
    - sample banner is ONLY an idea, don't have to follow it.

    IMPRESS ME!

    Hello everyone, so i like most of the submitted images.

    First a few common remarks
    1) i'd like you to include ALL the case colors in the banner (as these are exactly the cases that are on sale)
    2) the original price needs to be smaller and the new sale price bigger (kind of like Chris B. has it, but maybe in the "sale" sign like misterbadz)
    3) the images of the open cases as well as this one: http://www.salonhive.com/images/Bann.../mw04bk_a2.jpg
    is actually the same case but these images are showing the way this case looks inside as well as the fact that it turns into 2 separate pieces.


    now for the detailed (i'll start with images posted here):
    pehulz
    - need to show all cases side by side
    - price 'star' should emphasize the 115 price more than the original price
    - leave the "while quantities last" somewhere near the bottom right (no need to have it very visible)
    - at first i didn't like the orange BLOWOUT - but now i'm thinking your color scheme actually jumps out the most!

    Chris B
    - I like the location of "includes shipping"
    - please show all cases so i can do image map links
    - maybe too much pink on the background - i wonder if you could either use different tones (multiple tones) of pink.. so it ligtens up the background
    - increase the star with the price alltogether, but make the 179 less visible, and the words "from" and "to" as well, increase $115!

    misterbadz
    - i like the wave of pink over white
    - i like the sale "star" ? i'm thinking you can put the 115 into it, with 179 just above (smaller and crossed off)
    - please include all cases for clients to compare colors
    - not sure about the word blowout and "huge inventory" they don't seem to fit.. the price has to jump out at me

    now for PM'd - i'd really like to show your guys' stuff to others as i think some of you hit the nail VERY VERY Close...

    nunulka
    - like yours the most
    - please allow me or you can do yourself - post the image here so everyone can see my most favorite
    - please include all case colors
    - maybe remove the words "prices slashed",
    - make the $179 smaller and $115 jumping out more (bigger)
    - maybe "cross out" the $179 as well
    - Reduce "while quantities last"
    - also i'm thinking the price star - should be red instead of pink background? i need it to JUMP OUT

    somia
    - please have all the cases shown side by side and do not reduce the last (black case size as it makes it look like a different case)
    - too much pink
    - emphasize $115 more, and $179 less

    SGDESIGNS
    - also include that one case you're missing on the left
    - i like the clean look
    - maybe remove "Prices Slashed from $179 to $115 (includes shipping!)" and play with separating these words
    - something that makes the $115 stand out (read other comments i had above)
    - if you can post on public forum that would help out
    - the lettering ... somehow doesn't make me realize whats going on.. i need you to make me see it is a SALE!!!

    arunefx
    - Excellent for showing all 6 cases on the left (this is what i want)
    - try placing the other images a bit further away from the 6 cases (while they are the images of these cases, i don't want to make people think they are smaller cases) i have this idea that more options = more confusion
    - not sure about the fonts you used
    - not happy with the word blowout! as it is blue, maybe not a bad color - the font is not right...
    - price star - not bad, but needs to jump out at me more.. (maybe also cross $179 price (no need for the word "to"))
    - what i REALLY LIKE ABOUT THIS is the Shipping Truck... people nowadays don't care to read, so they wan to see visuals.. that's cool, maybe add a "checkmark" of sorts, or a nicer truck.. (currently truck doesn't go with the words "includes shipping" - something is amiss)


    EXCELLENT WORK EVERYONE!!!

    Looking forward to your revamps.
