As I was torturing myself at the gym the other day, surreptitiously squinting at the lettering on the T-shirt of the person in front of me, it suddenly occurred to me: the series has no clothes!
Correction: the series has no T-shirt.
With the publication of mass market Pink fast approaching, this seems like a fine time for Pink to acquire an official wardrobe. (I’ll have something new to wear to the gym!) My challenge to you is:
Create the Official Pink Carnation T-shirt!
For those, like me, who have never done this before, you can go to Cafe Press and from there to “make your own”. Just save your design and post the link here in the comments section. If you have another T-shirt design site you prefer, that works, too.
IMPORTANT NOTE: When you post your link, there needs to be a number at the end of it, like this: http://www.cafepress.com/cp/customize/product.aspx?clear=true&number=%20467416951
If it looks like this, ending in “Custom Designer” rather than a number, it won’t come up properly: http://www.cafepress.com/cp/customize/product.aspx?from=CustomDesigner
To get things started, I’ve created one. You can find it here.
Can you see why I’ve turned to you for help?
The contest closes on Sunday, September 18th. On Monday, September 19th, one participant will be chosen at random to receive a copy of The Mischief of the Mistletoe.
Once all the entries are in, I’ll throw it open to popular vote. Voting will open on September 19th and will close on the following Sunday, September 26th.
Whichever T-shirt gets the most votes will be the Official Pink Carnation T-shirt. (To be modeled by the author at a gym near her.) The winner of the T-shirt contest will receive an ARC of The Mischief of the Mistletoe— and an Official Pink Carnation T-shirt.
Let the designs begin!
NEW INSTRUCTIONS: Okay, so this link-posting thing is proving rather trickier than I imagined. Here’s the new plan. Please do still post your link in the comments section (hopefully it will work!), but also save the front and back views of your t-shirt as jpegs and email them to me at email@example.com with Pink T-Shirt Contest as the subject line. I’ll post pictures, front and back, of all the T-shirts next week and we can do the voting that way. Sound better?
As an example, I right-clicked on my T-shirt on Cafe Press, saved front and back as jpeg files, and here they are:
