Baltimore Beatdown Apparel Contest!

New, comments

You wanted some new kick-ass designs to wear and show off your Baltimore Beatdown pride. Now is the time to put your skills to the test.

You wanted some new kick-ass designs to wear and show off your Baltimore Beatdown pride. Now is the time to put your skills to the test. We will be choosing at least 1 design from the community and putting it up for sale with our partners at Gameday Depot.

What you need to do:

Provide a clear design on a white background to our email. A JPG would be fine for the voting purposes, but any vector art would be best once it goes to print. Your design must be in our email by August 1, 2015 in order to be entered into the contest. You can enter as many times as you want, but additional designs will be subject to the staff's approval before going up (trying to keep down on the spammed designs).

How to win:

Once we have all the designs, we will put them all up for viewers to comment on and vote for. The design with the highest number of votes will be the winner. If we have a few great looking designs that the community seems to love, we might even have multiple winners.

What you can win:

You'll win a shirt for you to display proudly or wear out. In addition, we'll work with you to give you a portion of each shirt sold.

Design ideas and specifications:

Player designs always do well. With the NFL Draft behind us, doing something on some of the new players would probably be great. A 'MADD MAXX' design would be fun to see done up by someone. The offense is also looking to be quite interesting this year, so a design centered around what could be the best offense in Baltimore would be cool. Defensively, the Ravens have another stout defensive line. I'm sure the community here will throw out a ton of other really awesome design ideas for those capable of putting things together.

All designs need to be free of any copyrighted material. That means no Ravens logo, no use of the Baltimore Ravens font and no use of any player's direct likeness. Sadly, we aren't authorized to do any of that, so putting up a design for sale would be a major no-no for everyone here at Baltimore Beatdown.

The shirts are direct to print shirts and are made when ordered. The positive thing here is that you have pretty free reign on the number of colors you can use and can be very inventive with your designs. The negative is that print areas and sizing is limited, so no all-over designs can be done and the design should be kept as one sided if at all possible.

What that all being said, send us your designs and good luck to everyone entering the contest!
