Submissions

Vote For Art will be similar to Threadless but with a collegiate focus. We are currently hosting the “Design Our Logo” contest which will be the very first of its kind. Members of the Vote For Art community will be able to design and vote for the actual logo to be displayed on our site and on all of the tees sold online and in book stores around the country. Not only will Vote For Art members create all the products sold in our stores, but they’ll also create the brand of the entire community!Friday Fix Oct 12 - 16
