Design-a-Tee 8!

Skip to the rants (49)


Welcome to the eighth edition of Emerica's ongoing Design-A-Tee contests, in which we empower you to create the best Emerica T-shirt graphic ever. You must enter Design-A-Tee 8 as soon as possible, though, as it officially closes on December 14, 2007. So, you better get crackin' and get creative!

Special note: Do not submit any entries containing the words "God Bless Emerica" or depict an American flag with Emerica Triangle logos in place of the stars. We get way too many of those, and they will be automatically disqualified. Don't waste your time!

After the contest ends, three winners will be chosen, each of whom will receive five shirts bearing their winning design, and three pairs of Emerica shoes. Note: Upon entering the contest, your artwork becomes the property of Emerica. The three winners' designs will be produced in a future Emerica apparel line, and the winners' only payment is the prizes listed above.

*If you're going to snail mail your entry, make sure you mail it early enough to reach us by December 14, 2007. If your entry is late, it will be automatically entered in the next Design-a-Tee contest. We're so nice.
