What to do:
After four rousing days worth of submissions have filled up our message boards and your editor's mailbox, we are ready for you Booties to vote in "The 2009 The Bootleg Schwag contest." After clicking the above link, you will be asked to rank-order our 15 submissions, and say if a given design were chosen, whether you would purchase a product with the design on it. We also ask for information on what types of products (shirts, sweatshirts, hats, visors, vests/jackets) you would be interested in and your sizes.
What we'll do with your votes:
Like the AP Poll itself, we'll give your favorite design 15 points, your second-favorite design 14 points and so on. The the design(s) with the most points will be selected as winners and their designers encouraged to reveal themselves for everlasting glory. (The only caveat would be if a winning design is very controversial, with enough the people ranking it first for it to win, but a sizeable minority sufficiently offended not buy the product, in which case we may offer an additional family-friendly alternative, or come up with some scheme so everyone goes home happy.)
Don't sweat the details on the size of your order, either in terms total quantity, which products you'll buy, or, quite literally, size. After voting has concluded on July 12, we will have four days for everyone to order precisely what we want – we just want to gauge interest to know what types of products to offer.
Please only vote once. However, anyone who is considering buying a product (spouses, non-Booties, you name it) is welcome to vote.
