Hookah T-Shirt Contest Winner Announcement

NEW! The T-shirts are finally in! Please click on our Hookah T-shirts blog for the announcement.  Thanks to everyone who participated and we thank you for your patience (we know this took too long, sorry) and congratulations to our finalists once again! "Create any theme you wish, and feel free to submit as many T-Shirt designs as you like!" That's how it all started. It's been almost 4 months since the contest started and we received a plethora of amazing designs. Selecting the Top 20 Hookah T-Shirts was hard enough and we're thankful for all the votes we received from our customers to help select these finalists. Hookah-Shisha.com will be printing these four designs so you can pick up one for yourself and be ultra cool while sharing your passion for smoking hookah with the world. Be on the lookout for Hookah Wear mid-March. The top 4 designs will split $550 in Hookah-Shisha.com credit. You'll notice that there are two third place winners. We originally planned $500 in total prizes, but when the two third place selections came up so close (1 vote difference!) we wanted to make sure both people were well taken care of. We're cool like that. All contestants that were selected in the top 20 will receive a special 20% discount for the next 6 months that is good for them and 2 of their friends as well as a free t-shirt design of their choice!

In case you're curious, here are the original Design and Submission Guidelines for this contest. Our Top 20 Hookah T-Shirts are featured below. Design Guidelines: Design your Hookah tee in a vector art program such as Adobe Illustrator®. Or, design in a raster program such as Adobe Photoshop®. If you are designing in a raster program, make sure you design actual size at at least 150dpi. When you are done, transfer your design to the template picture (shown at bottom,) so that we may have a relative idea of placement. If you are using the photoshop template, save off a copy of your design as a gif, jpg or png. If you are using the flash template, publish your file so that you have a .swf of your design. Submission Guidelines: We want every design submitted to " info@hookah-shisha.com " to have the best possible chance at being chosen for print. The Hookah & Shisha Central team will review submitted designs and vote internally on the winners. We will also try to post the designs online, and have our website visitors vote on the designs. We allow a maximum of 8 unique colors in designs submitted for this Hookah T-Shirt Design Contest, but for quality sake, we highly suggest 4 color count (background color will not count). Submissions will be declined if the design contains more than 8 colors. Each shade of a color counts toward the eight color limit, as do black and white. Common oversights with placement include designing across the tee from edge to edge, carrying a design over a seam onto the sleeves or off the top of the shoulder. We love larger format prints, but a design meant for regular screen printing should be constrained to a 15" x 20" (38cm x 50cm) area.

**A submission will be declined if it contains copyrighted material. Pop-culture inspired designs sometimes have legal issues we would rather not flirt with. If this is the case with the artwork, we may decline it. Hookah & Shisha Central reserves the right to alter all submitted artwork for formatting/printing capabilities sake. We at Hookah & Shisha Central (https://www.hookah-shisha.com) reserve the right to reproduce and sell Hookah T-Shirt designs submitted in the contest..

  • I dig Hookah T-Shirt #2.....what a "HOOHAK"???
  • Bedya - I think "hoohak" is the noise you make when your smoke gets too harsh Smile
  • Christa Mae,
    Thanks for asking!  We expect to have those shirts available very soon... we decided to make a few more designs than just the top three and it's taking a little longer than expected to get them into our hands.  The delay should be well worth it, as these shirts are going to be very nice when they're all finished!

    We'll be sending out an email letting everyone know as soon as we have them.  

    Thanks and happy smoking!
  • If I could purchase these right now I'd pick #'s 5, 11, and 20. Great designs I love them and would get all 3 let me know when and if they are for sale Thanks
  • I think number 10 rocks. It is subtle yet unique. I would prefer the picture on the back and a smaller picture on the right front pocket.
    I would spend $20.00 for it as long as it wasnt a mass produced cheap iron on.
  • Number 11 is one of the most baller shirts i have ever laid eyes on
  • 2,4,and 10 are my top faves.i'd definately grab those up asap.really good designing on all of em.hope they go on sale.
  • So my question is... where are these shirts?? this was posted as winners back in march its JUNE people.
  • all the shirts are great congrats to the winners

    When will they be available?

    Also, Im a big dude and was wondering if they will be available in 3xl?
  • From a Hookah-shisha.com admin:

    Hello friends, we have received several inquiries lately as to weather or not the t-shirts will actually be printed or not, since the contest has been over for several months.  We can assure you that yes, the top 3 shirts will be printed, and they will be available for purchase within the next few weeks.  The cause of the delay has to do with several factors, including some internal personnel changes and some issues with the formatting of the files with the printer.  We thank everyone for their patience and rest assured they will be coming soon!  Please contact us with any further questions.  Thanks and happy smoking!
  • Man, I would love to buy shirt number 13 - is this possible?  Please get back with me soon.  It's something I would love to purchase for a cool friend.  Thanks!!
