Question: On the banner picture, it says 'Your website name goes here'.  Do I have to put my website name on the picture myself before uploading or does your program do that?

Thanks,

Felicia

Great question, Felicia!

Your IndieMade site does not add any text to your graphical banner. The banner or logo is such an important part of branding that we leave it up to the site owner to choose the right font. 

If you don't upload a banner at all, your site name is displayed in the appropriate font in the header area. But this really should only be considered a placeholder; if you're serious enough about your work to have your own site, you should probably invest the time to create a nice banner.

Great question, hope this helps.
