Bike Forums Contest

Bikeforums.net has opened a Cafepress Store for the members to purchase Branded Logo Wear and gift items to show your BF pride. We're pretty excited about this. Now, this is where you, as community members come in.....







We're having a contest for all registered members to create logos in 4 categories using forum in-jokes. The categories are:

1) I'm a Fred
2) Check Out My Massive Guads
3) Flying Squirrel (for SS/FG)
4) Crank It Up to 400 Watts

Prizes for each category are the first item from the store, of your choice, for the category you win, and Lifetime Upgrade to Titanium Preferred membership. Submissions are to go to the following email address:
bikeforumscontest@gmail.com
The contest official start is Aug 26th and will run for three weeks
The Image requirements are JPGs or PNGs (PNGs are preferred as they are higher quality and have crisper edges)
• RGB color mode
• No larger than 7MB in file size
• Between 100 and 300 DPI to print well (200-300 is preferred)

The rules, etc are in the Global Announcement at http://www.bikeforums.net/announcement.php?a=73

There will be later Forum Specific contests, as well, I can guarantee ya. We see this cafe press store as an initial platform, really, and it's just getting started.

I'm envisioning a little cartoon of a bike with a word balloon "Don't Drew Me Bro!" Maybe with a tool-wielding hipster next to it.

Maybe not for a T-Shirt, but it would be a funny cartoon.

I like "Don't be a Drew."
