Welcome to this week’s edition of “Trending Topic Tuesday,” where we share our take on what’s going on in the world and what promotional products would appropriately (or inappropriately) market the subject matter.
Threadless and Disney just announced a contest searching for friendship-themed designs to decorate custom t shirts promoting this November’s brand-new full-length movie, “The Muppets.” Users must submit original designs featuring Muppets characters, which the public will then vote on to decide a winner.
The contest ends June 20th, and the winning design will be chosen on June 27th. One lucky winner will receive $2500 cash, a $250 Threadless gift certificate, the winning custom t shirt signed by The Muppets and framed next to a signed photo of the Muppets, a $250 set of collectible statues from Disney Traditions, and an autographed copy of the upcoming album, “MUPPETS: The Green Album”.
Not so confident in your artistic abilities? There are plenty of other ways to inspire the design of custom t shirts, whether you simply vote on your favorite, host your own t-shirt design competition, or solicit the help of professional artists, like those on staff at Pinnacle!
“The Muppets T-Shirt Design Challenge” may not be up your alley, but you can still participate in the contest by voting for your favorite user-submitted designs- there are certainly some good ones up for consideration.
A t shirt design contest is a fun way to engage your target audience and it can even generate lots of new ideas to increase the effectiveness of your marketing efforts. Social media allows for instant two-way communication, and a variety of free photo widgets for Facebook, WordPress, and many other platforms enable users to submit images and cast their votes. Who knows? The artistic abilities of your customers may surprise you!
And while Pinnacle’s Art Department can’t help with your contest entry due to legal stipulations, we can help you design custom t shirts for your next marketing campaign. Casual t shirts are a laidback vehicle to promote your brand’s message, and stylish artwork increases the likelihood that end users will wear and enjoy the unique gift for a long time to come.
