Lightbulb Photoshop Contest - Win 5 Bags of BBs!!!

Well, I am doing a massive BB order this week and the bagging company is giving me the option to print 4 color logo/information on the bags. As you know, the BB Bastards have always just come in a clear bag with a label on it.

I'm not an artist by any stretch and I am a cheap bastard (hey, it keeps the bbs cheap, don't knock it). The graphics skills demonstrated on this board on a daily basis simply blow my mind.... soooooooooooo....

Here is the basic information for the label:



READ CAREFULLY !

Final resolution should be 300dpi. Submission should include .20g and .25 versions for both types of bb bags. Printing is done on a white label, 8.8cm x 8.8cm and it IS a CYMK printing process. Sorry about the original dimensions, but it should be easy to scale your artwork up or down.

Submissions should not contain copywritten logos or material I could get sued for reproducing. Be as creative and as humourous as you want. My last batch of BBs went out in Biohazard specimen bags... I was quite pleased with that choice.

What does the winner get out of this? 5 bags of BB Bastard product, shipped free of charge, anywhere you want it. Thats a $75+ retail cost. On top of that you get to point to the bag and say to your buddies "Hey, I designed that bag man..."

DEADLINE EXTENDED!!

I am the sole judge and will choose the winner no later than Sunday March 12th at midnight. I reserve the right to select no winner if there isn't a suitable submission to choose from, but I won't use any submission without declaring a winner.

Do you want us to submit something with a transparent background, or just a white background is ok?

A white background is okay but if you intend the white to be transparent, just mention it in your post with your image. Either background design is fine.

Heres my submission (Actually the first graphics submission I've done on this site so far)...

Could change the BB size color, font color, etc.

Left it black and white because black and white is always good.

I was going for a simplistic but professional approach. Can't really make anything flashy for a BB bag with a limitation of 4 colors.

i started on this before I even saw the one you posted jay haha. But I took the whole "small business" idea to the next level... making it look as shady as possible.

anyways enough chit and chat. heres a scaled down version (from the 300dpi working copy)

photoshop GO!

You do realize that 4 colors is a full color print right? CMYK... cyan, magenta, yellow, and black... Everything printed in full color uses the CMYK ink base (with the exception of using pantone inks but that's another story).

This is very true, however I do know some places when doing jobs for newspapers and such have solid colours... and they shoot them.. in a true 4 colour + bw fashion when going to press.... non process.

it just hasn't really been specified what kind of run this thing is going through.. but the most common is the 4 colour process.
