Design Contest

You know how we've been doing our Craft Mat of the Month for a while now? Well, we want our absolutely talented & kind & amazing crafters to help design our December Craft Mat of the Month - just in time for Christmas!

What's in it for you?

- This is a contest. Both 1st place and 2nd place designs will become the Official December Craft Mat(s) of the Month and will be available on our website for the whole month of December with the potential of becoming permanent designs.

- The winner will get a free 18"x24" craft mat of their design + $250 giftcard to our website + $250 giftcard for Amazon.

How can you get started? 

- We have an editable template available here (and linked below). You are welcome to use our current grid/card marks or change it to something you think is better. 

- You only need to design an 18"x24" glass craft mat. If you win, we will help design the other sizes.

- You can design anything you want - just be sure to follow copyright laws or ask us if you aren't sure about something. It can be Christmas themed, or not. Whatever you want!

- It doesn't have to be perfect and can be designed physically or digitally. 

- If you aren't a designer but have ideas, you are welcome to reach out to our design team through to share your ideas and they can help you get started! You can also paint/craft a beautiful background and photograph it & we can help place the grid/card marks on your image for you. 

- Our designers will assist the 2 winners to perfect the designs before launching them onto the website. 

- Send your final 18"x24" designs to by November 17, 2023 and we will take things from there!

- We will pick the winners as a company and announce them on Social Media. However, we will share all the designs we receive and tag everyone that participated for credit. The winners will also be tagged for credit!
