OB Rag Tshirt classic

The OB Rag is holding a T-shirt design contest!

And the winner gets $50 or 6 T-shirts!

Beginning February 1st and running to March 1st, the OB Rag is sponsoring a contest for the design of our next batch of OB Rag T-shirts.

The winning design must include parts of, or all of, or a representation of our current OB Rag banner, shown at the top of the home page and every page of our website.  For samples of our past T-shirt designs, see below.

Big time awards for the winners!

  • $50 – or 6 T-shirts – is the award for the winning design.
  • Second place receives $25 – or 3 T-shirts.
  • Third place gets a free T-shirt.
  • And fourth and fifth places receive Honorable Mentions and half off on any T-shirt.
  • All entries will have their image posted online.

A panel of judges made up of current and former OB residents will decide the winning images.


The T-shirt design contest will run for one month, from Feb 1, 2013, to March 1, 2013 (unless otherwise extended for logistical reasons with notice).

Entries can be submitted 3 ways:

  1. Hard copy or original can be mailed to the OB Rag mailing address: PO Box 7012, San Diego, CA 92167; or
  2. Email copy can be sent to OB Rag email: obragblog@gmail.com  , or
  3. Hard copy or original can be dropped off at our new office at the Green Store, 4843 B Voltaire St., OB.

Finalists may be required to submit or present a “camera-ready” image suitable or ready for reproduction.

Finalists must be prepared to release all rights and copyrights of their images or entries to the OB Rag.  The OB Rag will not be responsible for any lost or damaged originals sent to us by mail or left at the Green Store.

Do the panel of judges have to pay a membership fee or make a donation to vote? Just being sarcastic!

Now now.

I want to be the model for the next t-shirt pic.

You’re on.

If only I can cut about 3000 calories from my diet, reduce my beer intake by 7 gallons per diem, then start excercising, perhaps by getting out of the Lazy Boy & walking to the TV to change the channel instead of using the remote, then after about two years I can model for the shirt. Maybe a mannequin would be a better choice for a model; at least a good one could think better than me.

I guess it’s time to come out of the closet? Well, sort of. If there are some real, bonified OB Rag supporters out there and you have some extra cash, I would like to issue a challange. Some supporter should come up with a new design for “OUR” T-shirts and accompany their design with a small donation. I think maybe $500.00 would finance a decent run of them. When the T-shirts came out, last year, yours truly was able to spring for the precedent amount. Maybe some one can help a local non-profit organization. Dig deep supporters. At least, if you don’t have design talent, it don’t take talent to write a check. Hell, Frank, hope this letter helps.

BTW. moving the “Green” OB to the back was the extent of my talent.
