Yes, New Year's Eve is a loooong way away. But it'll be here before we know it, and we want to be prepared!

We've got a lot of Halloween pint glasses in stock right now (why aren't you buying them, people?!) and Thanksgiving isn't too far away, so we're not going to do a special Thanksgiving glass this year. And we've already got a submission for a Christmas glass that we really love, so the next holiday is New Year's Eve. We haven't done a special glass for that holiday yet.

Got an idea? We'd love to see it! Check out last year's Thanksgiving, winter, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day and graduation pint glasses for examples.

Here's what we're looking for:

  • The design has to be a black and white line art drawing. We only print single-color designs, so a design with multiple colors won't work. Shadows and other shading won't work either.
  • Keep it simple. Remember, pint glasses aren't huge and the design will only be a few inches in size. The design should be fairly basic and not have a lot of tiny detail, and it should also translate well to a small size.
  • You don't need to include the Sandbar name or logo. Our logo will be on the other side of the glass.

Our panel of judges will choose their favorite design that also meets the above requirements. It's also possible that we'll choose more than one. And it's also possible that we might combine elements from more than one design into a new design.

What do you get if your design is chosen? Well, our undying gratitude and fifteen minutes of fame on our blog, for one. We'll also give you a pack of pint glasses and a T-shirt of your choice.

Submissions can be emailed to We're also looking for a custom design for our first tropical drink, the Bahama Mama, so if you've got an idea for that one instead, send it to us.

Disclaimer stuff: submitting your design to us gives us full rights to use it on our websites, social networking sites and merchandise. We'll give you credit everywhere we can, of course.
