Calling All Bike Artists!

Hey you. We'll be taking the holiday off, but you can mull this over while we're away: Do you make art? Do you make bike-related art? Here at Pinch Flat News, we've been overwhelmed with requests to start providing the usual schwag you expect from semi-professional, fly-by-night, cheeky jerks like us: At the very least, stickers and tee-shirts. Well, seeing as how we live in these internet-enabled, crowd-sourced times, we thought we'd throw the responsibility back to you, our loyal and noble readers.

So the deal is this. Design our No. 1 limited-edition sticker and tee-shirt, and receive the undying adulation of millions of genteel cyclists all over the world (and actual financial remuneration!)

Requirements: Tee-shirt--open design. Whatever you want. Try to keep it to two colors if you can. Short sleeves. We like white, it's cooler AND it's slimming. Our official logo is up there to the left--the Edwardian Script thingamajig, along with Gene's rocking Schwinn Excelsior. Send your entries to pinchflatnews AT gmail.

Stickers: Two colors, preferably black and blue printed on white. Size: 2.75 x 2.13 inches, print resolution 300 DPI.

Deadline: Right now, until July 15, 2007.

Here's a sample sticker, for your inspiration and edification:
