It's that time again; time for Pedlars' Product of the Month. This time round we want you to get your creative caps on and design a Thank You card to be sold at Pedlars. We only ask that it be a design that we can reproduce in the UK to sell, but otherwise you can really go wild.
If you've been following our Product of the Month competition from the start you will know how it works, if not, here's what it's all about: we give you a month to enter a design -this time for a Thank You card- and then we get your friends, our friends and our customers to vote for their favourite on our website. This isn't just for designers, we encourage anyone of any age and any ability to enter. The design with the most votes will then be produced and offered for sale at Pedlars (but don't worry, the designer will retain copyright).
The winning designer will receive £500 worth of Pedlars Vouchers immediately and more each time one of their cards sells. And, what's more, each time one sells we will donate money to a charity of their choice. Three runners up will each receive £50 of Pedlars vouchers too.*
Email your design and any questions to Sophie. The closing date for submissions is Tuesday 14th May and voting will begin the following day. Voting closes on 29th May and the winner will be crowned the following Monday. The winning Thank You card will be available to buy from Pedlars shortly after that.
Take a look at our brilliant two previous POTM winners here in the Pedlars Product of the Month Hall of Fame.
Terms and Conditions Apply:
Each month Pedlars promotes a "Product of the Month" promotion (each a "Promotion"), with the winner receiving vouchers to spend at Pedlars, and the opportunity to (i) receive a royalty payment (being a specific value of Pedlars vouchers, the precise value being specified in the Specific Promotion Terms (as defined below)); and (ii) a donation to a charity of the winner's choice, each time Pedlars sells a product bearing the winning design (each (collectively) a "Prize"). These terms and conditions ("Promotion Terms") apply to all Promotions promoted by Pedlars. Specific terms will apply to certain Promotions ("Specific Promotion Terms") and promotion entrants will be advised of Specific Promotion Terms at the time of entry. By entering a Promotion the entrant agrees to accept and be bound by these Promotion Terms:
The Prize is non-transferable, non refundable and no cash alternative is available.
The entrant is only permitted to make 1 entry per Promotion. Multiple entries shall not be accepted.
Promotions are not open to employees (or immediate members of their families) of Pedlars, or any other individual or entity connected with the operation of the Promotion. Promotions are open to UK residents only.
The closing date for Promotion entries is midnight (GMT) on the date identified as the closing date in the Specific Promotion Terms. Late entries (i.e. entries received after the specified closing date) will not be accepted.
The winning entry will be decided according to public vote, with voting on all Promotion entries made available on the Pedlars website (http://www.pedlars.co.uk ), subject to (i) the winning entry complying with the Promotion Terms; and (ii) the winner entering into a written agreement on terms notified by Pedlars to the winner (the "Winner's Agreement").
Pedlars will notify Prize winners by post and/or telephone and/or email by no later than 14 days following the closing date, with instructions on how to claim their Prize. Failure to claim a Prize in the time or manner specified in such instructions may make the Prize winner's claim to a Prize invalid.
The Prize winner's name will be made available on request to those writing to Pedlars, The Stables, Glen Dye, Strachan, Banchory, Kincardineshire, AB31 6LT, after the closing date, enclosing a stamped SAE.
Prize winners agree to their names and/or photographs (where applicable) being used for promotional purposes and/or to take part in publicity.
An entry to a Promotion must be a new design of the entrant's own work. It cannot be copied from a design already in existence, and it cannot be used if it is already being offered, or has been offered, for sale elsewhere.
The winning entrant shall grant Pedlars an exclusive licence to use the winning design for a six month period. To be clear, all copyright in the design shall continue at all times to rest with the winning entrant (unless otherwise agreed between Pedlars and the winning entrant). The terms of the licence will be set out in the Winner's Agreement.
Pedlars reserves the right to use all Promotion entries for purposes of advertising, marketing and promotion.
Pedlars reserves the right to cancel, amend, terminate or temporarily suspend any Promotion in the event of any unforeseen circumstances or technical reason outside its reasonable control, with no liability.
Pedlars’ decision shall be final in all matters and no correspondence will be entered into. Pedlars reserves the right to verify the validity of entries and to disqualify any entrant who tampers with the entry process, submits an entry that is not in accordance with these Promotion Terms; is in breach of any of their obligations, representations and/or warranties under these Promotion Terms; or otherwise conducts themselves in a manner which is inappropriate or unsuitable (as determined in the sole discretion of Pedlars).
Pedlars shall be entitled to disqualify any entry that Pedlars reasonably believes does not comply with the Promotion Terms. If any breach of the Promotion Terms or the Winner's Agreement, fraud, deceit, misconduct or other action by the winning entrant is discovered or reasonably suspected after a Prize has been awarded, then Pedlars may upon notice void the decision, in which case the Prize shall be cancelled and where applicable returned (or appropriate compensation shall be provided) to Pedlars forthwith.
Any incidental costs associated with entering Promotions are the entrant's responsibility.
The winning entry must, in Pedlars' sole opinion, be: (i) relatively economic to manufacture (by reference to Pedlars' present product line); and (ii) capable of being manufactured in the United Kingdom.
Pedlars shall not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of its obligations under these Promotion Terms that is caused by events outside its reasonable control, including but not limited to any act of God, failure of the internet (or any other communications network), strike, war, fire, flood, riot, sabotage or terrorism.
The Promotion and these Promotion Terms shall be governed, construed, enforced and interpreted in accordance with the laws of Scotland. Any disputes, controversies and/or claims arising out of or in connection with the Promotion and/or these Promotion Terms shall be exclusively subject to the jurisdiction of the Scottish courts.
