Go vote for your favorite design in our Voting Gallery!

Itís that time of year again. Yes, itís our 9th year (believe it or not) of handing out specially-designed shirts for Black Friday. Once again, 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 and upload it as an attachment. The submission must be postmarked between Wednesday 9/30/16 Noon (CST) and 10/13/16 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 2016 T-shirt! (Only one shirt per person.)
A 2016 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.

Short version:

Members submit designs
We narrow it down to our favorites
Members choose a winner from the favorites

(Note: In order to vote, your account will have to have posted at least once in our community.)

If you win the BF Community T-shirt Design Contest, you will receive:

A box of FatWallet premium schwag
The coveted 2016 ďDing DingĒ Winner's badge and all the bragging rights that come with it!
12 Black Friday 2016 Black Friday T-Shirts with your crazy awesome winning design that you can give to others!
A gift card loaded with $500 to spend at your favorite FatWallet store!

How Do I Earn the Community T-Shirt?

To earn the Community Design Winner shirt, you need to do one of the following:

Submit a t-shirt design to the Community Contest
Submit a qualifying Hot Deal (see thread here†)

(Note: Only one shirt per member.)

Good luck everyone, and have fun!

  • Use 3 colors maximum plus the background color of the shirt. No gradients, drop shadows or glow effects.

    • Gray shirt: Background color
    • Green & Black logo = 1st and 2nd color
    • White accent: 3rd color

Design Submission:

  • The deadline to enter is 10/13/16, 12:00 PM (Noon) CST

The site openly states:† "All Clipart on Openclipart are available for unlimited commercial use. That means you may use the clipart commercially, for education, for church, for school, for your job, or even to manufacture products globally."
Here is the specific clip art used from that site:https://openclipart.org/detail/184491/happy-retro-couple††

The font is also confirmed as free for commercial use as shown on this site:

T-shirt design #2
My Design #2.

All elements are created by me on GIMP. And fonts are all default Arial/Comic from GIMP.

I wanted to create a T-shirt more focused for the community. Why not have a shirt where we FW'ers can fill in our name and introduce ourselves at the lines ?

T-Shirt color can be switched up. I chose gray as sample. Hope you all like it.
