"Design" aesthetics aside, none of the outputs look like they're actually being done in a high-res, vector format. The last one? Is that a high-res pic you're using? Is it 150-300dpi? Or is is a 72dpi pic you've "sourced" elsewhere? A quick reverse-image search, and I'm finding it in a variety of forms, but the circle cut-out is telling me you don't have the proper tools to do this. Basically, are you doing this in MS Paint, Word, or PowerPoint? If so, it's not usable (it's really not). You're trying to build a retaining wall with paper mache and toothpicks.
If you don't have any amount of marketing budget, at least give Whiffy's PM (assuming it's a Fiverr link) some serious thought. It's $5. It will be vector. It will be usable, big, small, short, tall. It will be better than everything produced so far. It will be $5. (as a graphic designer, I hate you for making me recommend this, Whiffy. lol)
FYI, everything I posted I shrunk down because the size limit for file attachments on this site is too small to post original high-res images.
