Friday, March 19, 2021

We're teaming up with Factotum Designs to host a T-shirt design contest, and sell shirts to benefit the NEMBA Trail Grant fund!

Factotum has printed the NEMBAFest shirts in recent years and we're excited they reached out with this idea.

Project Overview:

Designers will submit their favorite designs. Then we'll put the best out there for a vote to our members. The top voted will be printed on a T-shirt. We'll have a pre-order and then print & mail the shirts in time to hit the trails late spring! Proceeds will go into the Trail Grant fund to help fund local trail projects! 

From Factotum:

We print a lot of bike related shirts.  For events, shops and clubs.  We are mountain bikers ourselves and wanted to find a way to give back to the community that we're a part of.  We can't always be out there on trail day and we thought this would be a way for us to help support the trails that we ride in New England. We see this as a way to encourage creativity, excitement for the upcoming season and as a way for all of us to give back to the trails and sport we love.

Design Parameters:

Since this is a fundraiser for Trail Grants, the design should involve a bike, bike trails, or at least nature, and ideally with "NEMBA" incorporated into the design. Feel free to sign your name or include your name as a small part of the design. 

Design can be up to 7 colors. Vector based artwork with fonts outlined is preferred for spot color printing. CMKY process printing is also possible, ideally with art at 300dpi and created at finished print size. However, we want to see what you can do so don't let these requirements discourage you from submitting your design, if yours is the best we can work with you to make it on a t-shirt. Factotum is available to answer any design questions. When submitting the artwork, please also include any design notes for the printer.
