Canvas has been successful beyond our wildest dreams
Corona, CA (PRWEB) July 28, 2009
CanvasThreads.com, an ongoing Christian t-shirt contest, has announced a one-time $1,000 Grand Prize to coincide with the launch of their two new t-shirt categories, "Type tees" and "Funny tees."
Canvas Threads is an innovative program allowing customers to design, submit, and vote on t-shirts. The designs that are voted the highest are manufactured and sold in a limited edition run through C28.com, C28 Stores, and other select retailers.
Since the Canvas Threads program launched in September of 2008, over 3,500 t-shirt designs have been submitted, with 115 winners picked. An astonishing 500,000 votes have been cast.
"Canvas has been successful beyond our wildest dreams," says Justin Palmer, Canvas' website manager. "The credit for this success goes to the community of gifted artists within Canvas. Their talent and dedication to the community is priceless. Their ability to express their faith and glorify God through their artwork, and get paid for doing so, is a tremendous blessing to both us and themselves."
Palmer explains the addition of the 2 new categories. "We've seen a need for simple text based faith messages on t-shirts, and also humorous ones. The artist community has done an incredible job with the artistic side of t-shirt designs. We now believe Type and Funny tees are the next step. For this reason, we have upped the standard prize of $400 to $1,000 for the first two winners in these new categories."
Canvas Threads is a part of the C28 ministry and stores. C28 offers a wide variety of products based on scripture. Their Christian clothing, purity rings, music, and accessories are used as an expression of faith as well as a tool for sharing the gospel with people around the world. C28 hopes the Canvas Threads program will enable them to minister to a larger audience.
