Huge news: we're taking our 10% designer commission and adding a bonus! For the month of June and every month hereafter, if your monthly commissions exceed certain thresholds, you will retroactively qualify for an additional bonus commission on top of what you've already earned. And on top of that, you will be paid out every 14 days (instead of once a month) with no waiting period. We've even added a new payout threshold of $10 (versus the previous $20) so you can transfer that cash to your bank account even faster than ever. Check out our infographic below which breaks down the new commission tiers. Continue reading

Apologies if we misunderstood! No, submitting a larger file will not result in disqualification, but please note that all designs will still be viewed at the 42" x 36" canvas size during voting. Setting the design to centered will not break the entry :) Thanks for great questions!

You do not need to design a label, no! Just create four coordinating design on a yard with the theme of family tree, that's all! The winning designs will be re-worked and sold as quilt labels once the Design Challenge has closed. The designs should coordinate with each other -- not with StoryPatch's existing labels. Great questions!

Apologies for any confusion, there's absolutely no requirement to use the stkr.it app or print a story/ messages for the Design Challenge. You simply need to design four coordinates on a yard with the theme of Family Tree. Please feel free to email us at help@spoonflower.com for any further questions!

D'oh! While we do strive for perfection, we are humans and sometimes make mistakes unfortunately. So sorry for any confusion caused, the rules have now been updated!

Hi Hanna! No, there will not be a top 100 this time. However, we will begin scanning for designs at 3 PM on Tuesday the 17th, and removing designs that don't adhere to the official rules.

Hey Alicia, there was actually a typo in the tutorial -- the finished cut dimension for each piece should be 28" x 72" after cutting the selvage. Sorry for any confusion!

Great job with this prompt, Laura! Can't wait to see what you come up with next!

Thanks for the feedback, Laura! We're hoping you'll use your imagination and bend the themes to fit *your* aesthetic. So while "cats and donuts" may at first glance appear more playful than sophisticated, it can really look however you want, it just depends on where you take your design and how you interpret the themes in your own unique style.

Thanks very much for sharing your thoughts, Kelly.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Amanda. The goal of our weekly prompts is to build community and provide inspiration. For an actual contest with voting in the traditional sense, we've switched to a monthly format and are very excited about the overwhelming participation we've seen. We recognize that change can be difficult and I'm sorry to hear you are so disappointed. Thanks again for taking the time to share your point of view.
