I am opening a shop on CafePress and I would like to place a custom banner in my blog advertising the shop. I know I can place the image in a post and link it to the shop, but I would like to put it in the sidebar so it will always be visible. AFAIK, this could only be done w/ the text widget, using HTML.
So how would I make a banner with my own image that would link to my shop?
These are the type of banners i’m talking about, though I wouldn’t need animation:
The blog I need help with is throughagreenlens.com.
@dsr22, in general advertising is very limited here, so you need to run what you are going to be selling past support and let them make a determination as to whether it will be allowed or not. Generally if you are selling your own wares that you have made with your own hands (crafts, pottery, paintings, etc.) I suspect there won’t be a problem, but you need to ask.

Putting an image linked to a shop though is exactly what you would need to do, and this FAQ explains how to do it: http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/10/18/put-an-image-in-your-sidebar/ .
