I uploaded this item recently and it was soft rejected twice then hard rejected twice. I’m trying to improve it but I’m a bit stuck now. What do you think? How can it be improved because honestly I don’t know much about styles and I need some opinions.

The preview for my fourth upload of this item:

I don’t know much about creating styles, but I think the problem is that these look very generic in that buyers could get better quality for free and compared to the ones in the shop these are pretty low quality. These are my thoughts on how you could improve them.

1. Make them more unique 2. Make Gradients more subtle 3. Make bevels more subtle 4. Choose better fonts to display the styles (Try these http://losttype.com/browse/) 5. Since you have a “Motor Style” theme, try some textures with tire tread or something that relates to motors, wheels, etc. 6. Try some 3D Effects if possible.

Hope that helps :nerdy:

You need to change the noise in the background and in the stroke of most your style – make them much more subtle, they are quite agressive at the moment.
