If you’ve been reading this blog a while, you probably gathered that I am a big supporter of handmade, custom merchandise. I was recently made aware of a contest sponsored by the CustomMade.com website.
Starting now through Monday July 12th, submit your answer to the question “Why Custom?” for your chance to have your words immortalized on the CustomMade.com “Why Custom?” section of our homepage. Should your entry be picked and you are a CustomMade.com subscriber, they will also link to your profile from your answer on this page. Plus, the winner will win a $100 gift card!
Entries should be a concise one-sentence long reason why custom made goods are so much better than stuff that comes off an assembly line. Be funny, be serious, be creative, just make your point clear! Check out the old “Why custom?” page here. You can submit an entry by clicking the icon below and filling out the web form. Entries will be reviewed Monday July 12th, and the top 10 winners will be announced shortly thereafter.
You can also go directly to the entry form by clicking HERE.
You may submit as many entries as you’d like. Good luck to everyone!
