Hello Everyone!

With the introduction of our new putter, the ION, we are looking forward to hosting an art contest that will determine what will be used for the hot stamp!

For those who have yet to hear about our ION, feel free to read all about our new putter at these locations:

We are using a chemical theme for our plastics and disc(s). I envision molecular structures, atoms, chemical bonds, electron orbits, etc to be some very promising and achievable design ideas! I am sure there are a lot of you who can come up with some very creative artwork, be imaginative! And feel free to submit as much artwork as you would like!

Artwork can be submitted in just about any format, as long as the lines are clean and visible. Also, large solid areas should be avoided preferably under of an inch to avoid bubbles forming under the foil of the hot stamp.

Please submit all artwork by April 1st. We will choose the top 5-6 submissions, and post them on a separate poll, for a 5 day voting period shortly after the April 1st deadline.

The winner of the contest will receive $500 worth of IONs bearing the new custom stamp! If a combination of art and text submitted are used, prizes will be split accordingly.

Please send all artwork to: [email protected]

If there are any questions, feel free to pm me here.

I would like to thank everyone and those who choose to participate in the contest! We look forward to all of your submissions and continued support!

Off to a good start so far early into the game! Have a few submissions already, still looking forward to some more artwork. I'm sure some of you are pretty creative and can somehow incorporate some molecular structures, chemical bonds, or something of the like with the ION!

Keep up the good work everyone!

Thanks,

~Chad

Still plugging away. I'm going to send you mine as a huge zip file most likely. Got some good stuff working.


I look forward to seeing all the entries.. is there going to be a way to do that after the competition is over?

I don't see why not. I think I could possibly post up the majority of the artwork after the voting is over, depends on how many we receive. Worst case, I could always send a .zip to anyone that would like to see them.

Feel free to shoot any questions/suggestions my way too

Wow, just wanted to say thanks everyone for all the submissions so far! I feel we are off to a pretty good start, and yet we still have plenty of time for lots more artwork!

Some have asked about if they can use our company logo into their design, so just wanted to say that you are more than welcome to use it. You can take the image from our page on our company's website. http://maplevalleyplastics.com/ION%20Putter.htm

If there are any questions feel free to ask me. Keep up the great work everyone!

Thanks,

~Chad

i love the way the discs looked w/o a stamp. keep it small and simple, imo.

We could always have a few unstamped ones for those who like that look, perhaps great for dying! If you need any unstamped ones just let me know and I can get you some.

We have gotten quite a selection of hotstamps already, some are looking pretty good, still feel like there could be some better ones out there, but keep up the good work! Looking forward to some more artwork!

If there are any questions feel free to ask me

Thanks,

Alas the hotstamp submission period is over!

I need to thank everyone who has put forth their efforts into all of their artwork. There was an overwhelming amount of designs submitted. I will be looking through all of the designs and picking out a handful of the ones I feel that qualify. Hopefully in a day or few, I will have up a poll to vote on them.

Once again, I thank and appreciate all of the effort put into all of the submissions.

Thanks,
~Chad
