Strathmore T-Shirt Design Contest

Attention Artists!

The Strathmore Team needs some swag and we want your help! We want to wear t-shirts to shows, events and promotional activities that tout an original design. The artist whose artwork we select to be printed on our t-shirts will win $1,000!

The winning shirt design will be screen printed in one color. Simple designs will reproduce better and will improve the chances of your design being selected.
