Showing your school pride has far surpassed the days of face painting and pom pom cheering. Today many Oregon Duck and Oregon State Beaver fans proudly display their school spirit with outrageous home décor for bedrooms, game rooms, nurseries, and beyond.

Oregon's leading window and door manufacturer, JELD-WEN, wants to see the fan-tastic home décor of Oregon Duck and Oregon State Beaver supporters in its search to find The Ultimate Fan. From now through September 30, Oregon Duck and Oregon State Beaver fans are invited to enter JELD-WEN's Ultimate Fan contest by sending a photo and brief description of their spirited home décor to promotions(at)jeld-wen.com. To complete The Ultimate Fan's spirited home décor, the winner will receive a new JELD-WEN® Custom Carved interior door with the Oregon Duck or Oregon State Beaver logo. The Ultimate Fan will also receive a $100 gift certificate to the University of Oregon or Oregon State University Bookstore. For complete information, rules and guidelines, visit http://www.JELD-WEN.com.

JELD-WEN, the world's leading manufacturer of windows and doors, recently unveiled two new limited-edition Custom Carved interior door designs exclusively for University of Oregon Duck and Oregon State Beaver fans. Officially licensed by the two schools, these doors are a lasting way to show unwavering support for the Oregon Ducks or the Oregon State Beavers by incorporating school spirit right into a home's interior design.

"No matter which school they support, Oregon fans are very loyal and have a tremendous amount of pride. Since this is our home state, we wanted to create something special to honor that spirit," said Kevin Pine, product marketing manager for JELD-WEN® Interior Doors. "These doors definitely make a big statement and are perfect for kids' bedrooms, TV and game rooms."

JELD-WEN Custom Carved doors are unique given the fact that one-dimensional designs can be carved right into the door using special router technology. Oregon Duck fans can have a Custom Carved door with the University of Oregon official "O" mark, while the Oregon State University design displays the Benny the Beaver logo. The doors come preprimed and JELD-WEN provides paint color suggestions to match each school's official colors on its Web site so that homeowners can replicate the logo color scheme.

From golf balls to pajamas, Oregon Duck and Oregon State Beaver fans are known for snapping up items that allow them to display their school spirit in unusual ways. But having it on interior doors brings fan loyalty to an entirely new level. Beyond using them simply as doors, JELD-WEN also is showcasing a variety of creative ways to display the new college designs -- from creating headboards to making them into tables and desks.

"This is certainly a unique and creative way to display school loyalty," said Jerry Pettibone, former OSU head football coach and current director of college and university relations. "Incorporating it as part of more permanent home décor elements is a great idea and should definitely appeal to the true fan."

This is the first time JELD-WEN has offered officially licensed doors and the University of Oregon door and the Oregon State door will be available until June 2008. JELD-WEN Custom Carved interior door sizes are 6'8", 7'0 and 8'0 in height and up to 3'0 in width. Limited edition college door designs are available at select Home Depot stores and JELD-WEN dealers in Oregon and southern Washington. For a local dealer, visit http://www.jeld-wen.com/collegedoors. Orders take six to eight weeks and costs start at $249 for the door only and $299 for prehung door units (installation is a separate cost).

JELD-WEN Custom Carved doors are manufactured using solid MDF sheets, so there is no risk of separation of stiles, rails and panels. Each door has a core, which provides some of the best noise reduction of any residential or commercial door while also being 33 percent lighter than most MDF doors. JELD-WEN Custom Carved doors are available in 70 different design styles and custom designs are also possible. Along with the limited edition Oregon college door designs, JELD-WEN offers a number of standard children's door designs available through select Home Depot stores.
