    This is a great resource, Andy! I’m actually going to be redoing my header in the next few weeks and this post has given me a lot of inspiration.

    I haven’t been here for a few weeks, but I like the new design, Michael!

    1. Andy

      We are getting a new design next week. Will blow you away :)

  2. Jasmin Halki?

    I like it.

    Does WordPress charge for custom pages? I would love to customize mine, but am not sure how to go about doing that. I need to check with them and see. I love these headers though. They are sharp.

    1. Andy

      If you are hosting wordpress yourself, then no it wont cost. Not sure about if you are hosting with wordpress.com

      1. April

        Depends on the theme. I created a custom header for my blog and I use the Digg 3 Column theme.

  4. graphic design Melbourne

    nice list- very creative headers.
    I personally like all of these, although I can imagine that others might consider some of these just a tiny bit over the top.

  5. Abu Farhan

  6. Eric B.

    Very nice headers. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Bridget Casas

    If you have a WordPress hosted site, choose a template with a customizable header and put it in as an image. There will be no links or Flash or anything, but it will give you the look you want!

  8. Roman Rusinov

    I dont like it. I mean it might be ok for a poster or flyer. But web is already overflowing with this mash-collage-photoshopness, a lot ingredients but final product doesn’t taste good.

  9. Oliver
