Time For A New Set of Armor
For a long time, we’ve always gotten great feedback on our shirts. We’re really happy that our community members have been a huge fan of the “My Other Shirt is Chainmail” design for quite some time now.
It’s time for something new though, but this time we’re going to let you, our community, design them! These are going to be the shirts we send to fans, give away as prizes, wear at conventions, and for the general purpose of showing our Obsidian Portal spirit.
The contest starts today and we’re going to take submissions through July 17th, after that point we’ll let the voting begin. For 5 days OP community members will have a chance to click on over and cast their vote for the favorite shirt design. After voting is closed, we’ll be announcing our winner and two runners-up.
UPDATE: T-shirt design submission has been extedned to the 17th of July!
Not only will the winner be the shirt we create and become our new official T-shirt and $30 to spend, we’ll also be sending it over to Teespring and making it available for all OP fans to purchase. That’s right, you have been asking for the ability to buy OP shirts for years, and it’s finally going to become a reality!
Just to sweeten the deal, the winner will also receive 3 months of Ascendant time. Our 2nd and 3rd place runners up will also receive $20 each and a free month of Ascendant time, and also a chance for their design to be made available for purchase in the future.
I bet you’re wondering where to start? Well the sky’s the limit here, create something that you feel invokes the awesomeness of Obsidian Portal and send it our way! The main design constraints are that the imagery must be suited for either a black or white cotton T-shirt. Just click the link above to submit your design via our form. The technical specifics are below:
- 4 colors or less, monochrome is ok
- At least 300 dpi resolution or better
- EPS, PSD, or AI format
- Artwork must be your own, or public domain / open source. No copyrighted images allowed unless permission is given by the artist
If your entry does not meet the submission criteria, we’ll be forced to reject it, but rest assured you can resubmit once any necessary changes are made. New to t-shirt design? There are some pretty great tips over on the Teespring Blog if you want a good place to start. We’re looking forward to everyone’s submissions!
