When hosting a wine tasting or wine party you typically need a lot of glasses for different people. To identify glasses for each guest people commonly use wine charms that hang around the stem or magnets that hold the charm in place on stemless glasses. I've adapted window-cling stickers for a simpler approach for both stem and stemless wine glasses to create a current product on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BJ5RJQM). This product was really geared at wine tasting events. I'd like to create a similar (but not the same) product geared at just holiday parties, e.g., Christmas, New Year’s, winter fun, December type themes. I'd like an original design to mark up to 36-40 wine glasses uniquely combining this winter holiday theme with wine inspiration.
The requirements are as follows:
* The pattern should combine holiday party and wine themes at some level
* It should be fun, bright and just generally exude party, festival, happy, holiday, etc.
* It should allow roughly 36-40 glasses to be uniquely identified in a memorable way making each sticker as distinctive as possible so that guests at a party can easily remember which one is theirs. The number isn't a hard limit but in this area to allow for a pretty big gathering.
* The "canvas" should be 3 inches by 8 inches in three (3) separate sheets
* Each individual design should be visible and identifiable if printed within an approximately 1 inch square area though this is negotiable, see next couple comments.
* The image areas do not need to be uniquely circles, see for example the base stickers here: http://www.wineenthusiast.com/tiger…ifiers.asp
* There needs to be a gap between each sticker for the printer to be able to create a cut for the sticker in an easy way.
* If desired you can create a thin outline of the sticker to show the printer the intended cut line which the printer can be remove separate from the image itself.
* The final deliverables need to be delivered in both Adobe Illustrator (.eps) format *and* (.jpg) for easy viewing without the Adobe product
* In the .eps file, each image needs to be in two layers. It can simply be a duplicate of the image in both layers or some use could be made of it like a white background on the first layer and a tree on the second layer. This is because during printing, having only one layer of the picture makes the picture too "translucent" and faded looking. The printers are doubling the printing process to make it stand out a bit more. Brighter colors tend to work a bit better as well.
* The color scheme should be explicitly defined in the CMYK standard
* The background must be transparent
* Though I think it is already a precondition of the competition, all work must be original and not previously copyrighted. I'll use a search in google images for all submitted designs to help me verify this
I'm looking for something simple, effective and fun. Good luck!
