Our crowdsourced pint glass designs have been popular the last several years, but it's been a whole year since we asked our customers to submit their best designs.

The last customer-designed glass was our happy new year glass from last year. We've been so busy this year, we haven't had a chance to hold another contest! And, we've been busy with the super popular mustache glasses. More of those are coming soon, I promise. In fact, we may let YOU choose which mustache comes next…Vday

Anyway. Check out some Thanksgiving, winter, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day and graduation pint glasses for examples of designs. 

Our Valentine's Day glass in 2011, designed by Alison, was one of our most popular pints ever. 

The fine print:

  • 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.
  • We aren't going to pay you money, but if your design or idea is chosen, you'll get a pack of pint glasses, a T-shirt and a whole blog post dedicated to the things you want to share with our friends.

We'll take submissions for the next two weeks, until January 21. Then, we'll pick our favorite design. We might pick more than one; we might combine designs and create a whole new one.

If you can't draw, it's not a big deal. Do your best, or if you really can't draw anything at all, or design something basic on the computer, just email us the idea and we'll try to create it.

So, if you've got an idea for a Valentine's Day glass, send it to us at sandbar@thesandbar.com!

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.
