It’s that time of year again. Yes, it’s our 8th year (believe it or not) of handing out specially-designed shirts for Black Friday. Like last year, we are going to have our community design shirts, we pick our favorites, and from the finalists our community selects a winner through our voting gallery.
How do I submit a design to the Community T-Shirt Contest and how does it work?
To submit a design to the community contest, just reply to this thread an upload it as an attachment. The submission must be postmarked between Wednesday 9/30/15 Noon (CST) and 10/13/15 Noon (CST). Each member is only allowed to have 3 designs submitted. Make sure you follow the Design Guide below. If you submit a design, you will receive:
A Private Message with a link to claim your free FatWallet Black Friday 2015 T-shirt! (Only one shirt per person.)
A 2015 Black Friday T-Shirt Design badge.
An entry into a drawing for one of ten $50 gift cards to shop at your favorite FatWallet store! (One entry per member.)
Once we have received all of the designs, we will look them over and pick our favorites (probably five). Before we present them, we will make sure that they are legal and what we consider fair representations of our brand. We will then present what we consider to be the top designs back to the community to pick their favorite.

Only FatWallet members can enter a design or vote.
Aside from the FatWallet logo, your entries must be your own original, unpublished work and must not include any third-party logos or copyrighted material. By entering the competition, you agree that your submission is your own work and you give FatWallet all rights to the image.
Quality not quantity is the goal. Multiple designs must be submitted as separate entries. Only one entry per person will be allowed in the final voting round. Only one free shirt will be awarded to each FatWallet member.
Elements of a Qualifying Design:
Incorporate both Black Friday 2015 and the FatWallet logo. (The logo may be either green and black, green and white, all black, or all white. The swirl can be used as an additional design element.)
Fit inside an area of 17” wide and 18” high, on the front of a t-shirt.
Use 3 colors maximum plus the background color of the shirt. No gradients, drop shadows or glow effects.
Example: gray shirt, green and black logo, plus white accent.
Gray shirt: Background color
Green & Black logo = 1st and 2nd color
White accent: 3rd color
The FW logo is PMS Green 376
Submissions must be formatted as jpg or png. May not be on t-shirt background. One image submission per topic.
NOTE: FatWallet reserves the right to disqualify entries that do not meet design, copyright guidelines or are not in line with FatWallet values. We reserve the right to alter winning design for production suitability.
FatWallet Logos Click images on left for larger format.
Common reasons for disqualifications:
Using more than the 3 colors plus the t-shirt
Including gradients, drop shadows, glow effects (they count as multiple colors)
Alteration of the FatWallet logo
Use of clipart or copyrighted images
Upload only one design per reply to this topic. (If you have multiple designs to upload, please upload them in separate replies so we can disqualify those that need it without disqualifying all your designs.)
If you have multiple designs to offer, we need to keep it to no more than three. If you would like to swap out a design, just let us know which one to remove.
The deadline to enter is 10/13/15, 12:00 PM (Noon) CST
Any designs that we do not feel can be duplicated for t-shirt silk-screening may not be included in the voting. We will do our best to notify you with a PM in a timely manner so you have the opportunity to submit another entry.
We get up when prices go down. I know a lot of people stick with online shopping for BF now, but to me it's still about getting up early and enjoying the crowds... and maybe seeing a little drama. EDIT: Corrected date.
FRESH OFF THE PRESS I'm not sold on the 'Don't show up without a gameplay' slogan, so I may post alternate versions. I'm also open to suggestions if anyone has an idea. Also, I would print this black square on a charcoal grey shirt.
Love this rule: Each member is only allowed to have 3 designs submitted (but I still think you should spread the wealth around. Each finalist should get a gift card, and the winner a little bit bigger one. )
