25% Off Your Favorite Wallpaper Rolls

We mustache you a question, although to be honest, we’ve considered shaving it for later. Are you as eggcited about this challenge as we are? Inspired by the pun master in all of us, this week’s challenge is taking a playful turn thanks to the jokes that make us giggle. If you’ve been wanting to try your hand at typography, this is the challenge for you!


Overview

Entries will be submitted at the Linen Cotton Canvas fat quarter size (27″ x 18”) but automatically previewed during voting as a Roostery x Spoonflower Special Edition Tea Towel. Follow the guidelines on the Spoonflower blog to ensure your design looks beautiful as both an unfinished Fat Quarter on Spoonflower and a finished tea towel on Roostery.

Prizes

  • One first place winner each week will receive a $200 Roostery credit, a $200 Spoonflower credit and one custom Linen Cotton Canvas Ultra Spoonflower Edition tea towel in their own winning design from Roostery ($17 value).
  • The 2nd place winner will receive a $100 Spoonflower credit and one custom Linen Cotton Canvas Ultra Spoonflower Edition tea towel in their own winning design from Roostery ($17 value).
  • The 3rd place winner will receive a $50 Spoonflower credit and one custom Linen Cotton Canvas Ultra Spoonflower Edition tea towel in their own winning design from Roostery ($17 value)
  • Remaining top 10 designs will receive a $20 Spoonflower credit and one custom Linen Cotton Canvas Ultra Spoonflower Edition tea towel in their own winning design from Roostery ($17 value).
  • The top 50 popularly-voted designs from each theme will be automatically made available for sale in the Spoonflower Marketplace (provided they are a verified seller) where they will receive 10% commission on every sale -- no $5 swatch required.
