Spade Club.com, an online poker subscription website, is in the middle of an intensely member-participative drive to develop company T-shirts, which it will sell in an online store currently being planned. So far, over a hundred members-cum-designers have responded to the competition with a wide range of designs, which the company has on public display at http://www.spadeclub.com/promotions/my-design.
It's worth a visit to check out some great, some mediocre and a few frankly awful submissions from the players that feature sharks, fish, pale horses, aces and a plethora of other recognisable poker elements and symbols.
In our deeply subjective view, the shark theme on ‘AuntieTiltie's' submission was pretty good, as was ‘Josuhapp's' Uncle Sam design. The "In a minute honey – I'm in a blind' sent in by RosieLadyBug has to be a contender, whilst a clever dinner jacket concept by ‘Taz2k' will almost certainly catch the voters' eye.
It's all good fun and smart thinking by Spade Club's management to publicise the store and involve players in designs that may subsequently be sold from it. Poker players are always up for poker gear!
The designs will be displayed until March 17, with members having until then to vote on the top designs.
The winners will be announced later in March, and stand to win:
* 1st place – one year of Exclusive membership and a free "myDesign" T-shirt with the winning design on it.
* 2nd place – six months of Exclusive membership and a free "myDesign" T-shirt
* 3rd place – three months of Exclusive membership and a free "myDesign" T-shirt
All Exclusive members who have submitted a design will receive a free "myDesign" T-shirt.
