It's that time again! The Black Friday T-Shirt Contest is here!
Are you ready to unleash your inner artist? We want you to design a Black Friday 2011 T-Shirt that will be sported by FatWallet fans everywhere! Don't be shy. (Like I need to say that to you? You're the wittiest and most outspoken forum fanatics I've ever seen.) But this is for everyone, even those of you who have been lurking and stalking the forums, Facebook, and blog just waiting for your chance to shine!
Here's what you get in exchange for your creative design:
A box of FatWallet premium schwag and bragging rights for your awesome design!
Plus one dozen shirts you can give to others! (I suggest you use 'em for leverage to get favors out of your friends and family.) "Sure, I'll give you a signed t-shirt if you'll wash my car."
Everyone who enters with a qualifying drawing will win a 2011 Black Friday T, so you've got nothing to lose by entering!
You decide the winner! Visit the Voting Gallery to view entries, vote, and see who's winning.

I've private messaged you if your design (so far) needed tweaking to meet the design requirements. I encourage you to resubmit your designs, as most of them were great but they simply contained too many colors to print. Remember you can have 3 colors plus your t-shirt color (4 colors total) black and white each count as a color as well as the FatWallet green, so you're technically allowed two more colors if you're using the 2 color (green & white/green & black) fatwallet logo. If you're using the swirl only, you do have a few more options for colors. :)
Let's keep the designs coming in! Please PM me if you have any questions about your design!
It would be a good idea to only allow members who have posted, say 25 times, to vote on a design. This would help discourage the unscrupulous who may ask all of their FaceBook friends to sign up for a FatWallet account just to vote for their design.
Yes I know they are two separate companies for now. Glad to see this promo is back. Lots of good entries the past few years, hope that its allowed for some of those authors to resubmit their designs (updated to 2011 as appropriate, of course).
