Before I vote, is #2 a blue dot on a white t-shirt, or is the shirt blue?  Since I don't wear black or white t-shirts, my choices are limited.

I forgot to change that to 10 when we picked our favorites.  We had 5 last year, so when I was creating this thread, that was the number I put in.  There are 10 finalists, as shown in the voting gallery.

If this shirt design wins. It will have a green shirt. It will be the same shade of green as the Fand W on the design.

  Shirt colors for several/all of the others would be good to know, since I suspect that will be a deciding factor for many people. Might also save some drama later on when people complain that shirt colors were known for some and not for others -- not that anybody would ever complain about results of a contest where free stuff is given.

  2 is the only one that the background of the image does not represent the shirt color. All the others have the same color shirt as their background.

#7 is a transparent background. That transparent shirt is going to be sweet!  Thanks for the clarification.

None of the designs submitted are actually on the shirts.  I think the gallery is doing something weird with some of the shirts.  We'll check into on Monday when the engineering team is back in the office.

**Edit**

Actually, I think I just fixed it.  None are showing on shirts for me right now.

**2nd Edit**

Now they are again.  This is odd, and the team will check into it Monday.

Everyone did a great job! Good luck

Just a suggestion, but I would make the shirts the actual color they are supposed to be and not just black. It gives the designs with a black background an unfair advantage because a lot of people will assume the shirts are going to be black with whatever design is on them.

Second this! In reality all shirts can be modified for the actual shirt color and not necessarily has to be black background. I choose black because it pops up the design the most.

My design is layered with transparent background so it can fit with any background color. Black was used as a sample.

Also, thank you to the staff and everyone who supported my design to make it to the finallists.

Ditto, the US map (mine) was designed on navy. Some others look like they should be on white, green or gray as well but displaying these designs as a different-colored box on a black shirt can throw people off.

Edit: it looks like, per MVP9596's updated post above, that they know about this issue and are looking into it today.

Thanks for running this fun contest every year! And I'm more than grateful to be a finalist and even more thrilled to add another free shirt to my FW collection, whatever the design will be! I'm honestly loving all the designs this year! Can't wait to rock it on Black Friday!

Have the messages gone out yet to claim a shirt for those who designed one? I got the badge, but no message about a shirt yet. (Just checking)

Not yet, I'll be doing that shortly.  I'm not sure if I'll get it completed by the end of the day, but PM's will go out soon!
