Updated our front zeon banner today. Went with a WARN photo. Cropped it in half and added some background desert/sky to the right side. Masked out and copied the jeep on the top layer. Set the first layer to lumonosity. Turned down the fill a little to appear black/white. Turn down the opacity and fill a notch on the first jeep layer to make the colors a little more dim. Add winch, logo and text. Done.

What do you think? I was a little skeptic on the free shipping font. I changed it up with brush a little but now i think it looks kinda retro.

I obviously don't know squat other than what I see. What I see is all fine other than the WARN ZEON, which is not coming through fully blackened. If this is how you meant it to be, great, but otherwise, my suggestion would be make sure all the black is filled in and not showing through other color.

I think it really looks good. However, I agree that using any script style (or even a serif) font is not a good choice for the "free shipping". A san serif would be better. (Maybe italic, or perhaps a different color such as a subdued blue to make it a bit distinctive...?)

Agree that "free shipping" does not stand out, so as Chuck suggested another font/color would take care of that.

Also, I don't know how important the wording is behind Warn Zeon but I really had to study it to figure out that it reads Go Prepared (at least I think that's what it says).

Ya its suppose to be like that. The zeon text is eroded with a grunge brush. I put the back ground text on the low priority as to show more of the jeep by not covering it with the zeon text. I`ll try out a dif free shipping font tommorow. I was hoping the white glow around the free shipping would be enough to make it stand out. Thanks for the input. I like sharing.

I bring you. Gradient. Makes the free shipping stand out now right? Man I played around and changed fonts for 15 minutes and just couldn't decide.

Now what I was looking at makes sense. Thanks for explaining it so I know that it wasn't in error.
