I like the third one. It's informative but the squares add a subtle attractive detail.

I second that emotion!

agreed BUT the lettering needs to be more legible, increase contrast, change font (i get you're trying to go for same font as logo but i think it'd provide nice balance and contrast to be different straight forward font)

Don't you think when it is actually banner size, the lettering would read fine?  Although, I see what you mean if I picture an outline around the text in a darker color, it DOES look stronger.  Just thinking outloud.  Wink

it shoudl be the same brightness as your logo - that stands out very well
as is it looks to be the exact same colour as the squares which causes it to blend
and the font you've use also makes it blend
i'd go for like verdana or helvetica, would stand out more while still giving you that soft, funky feel

I'm not sure I agree BUT all food for thought...don't you think?  I really like the text at full banner size, I think it is readable and fine.  Again, just opinions.

Ok, well here's my shop, with Banner 3 on it in full size.  I'm thinking the tagline is kind of faded looking too - we're looking at brightening it up some, but it won't be identical to the logo, as the logo is the focal point Smiley

ETA: I should give you the link!  http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=14035
