Fall is in full swing, designers! November is all about getting your shop ready for the busiest time of the year — the holiday gifting season. With that in mind, we’re challenging you to keep “gift wrap” front and center of your design thought-process as you conjure up your next masterpiece.
Lace Gift Wrap
This year, Spoonflower celebrated its 8 year anniversary as a business empowering individuals to design and print their own fabric and papers. According to modern tradition, the customary “gift” for an 8 year anniversary is linen & lace. Well that got us thinking, what about lace on linen? Or better yet… on gift wrap! Gear up for the holiday season with a lace inspired design that would look great on a roll of gift wrap. Voting will be viewed at the 8″ x 8″ swatch size. Deadline to enter is October 25th, 2016 at 3 PM Eastern Time.
Poinsettia gift tags
Everyone knows the finishing touch to the perfect gift is a thoughtful tag. Let seasonal poinsettias inspire a gift tag design that can be cut out of peel & stick wallpaper swatches, gift wrap or even fabric. Take inspiration from our 2012 “Gift Tag” contest winners. Deadline to enter is November 1st, 2016 at 3 PM Eastern Time.
Alpine Chalet Gift Wrap
It’s time to get cozy après ski in the Alpine Chalet of your dreams. Whether it’s a roaring fire, hot cocoa, or a log cabin deep in the Swiss Alps, conjure up a Chalet scene that will make us want to hang up our snowshoes and stay awhile.Voting will be viewed at the 8″ x 8″ swatch size. Winners will be photographed on gift wrap, so design with this product in mind. Deadline to enter is November 8th, 2016 at 3 PM Eastern Time.
Each week, one popularly voted grand-prize winner will receive $200 in Spoonflower credit. The rest of the top 10 winners each week will receive $20.00. The top 25 popularly voted designs (provided the designers are already verified sellers) will be automatically made available for sale in the Marketplace where they will receive 10% commission on every sale — no $5.00 swatch required! In addition to cash prizes, the top 10 will receive additional exposure in our email newsletters, professional photography of their printed designs, and social media mentions.
