By Amy | April 7th, 2010

With the Coast to Coast Tickets Facebook Page nearing 2200 fans, it’s time for a visual upgrade! Show us your graphic design skills by designing a graphic for our Facebook and Twitter pages, and you could win a $200 gift card, good for any tickets on the Coast to Coast Tickets site.

Contest starts on April 19th, and you’ll have two weeks to submit your artwork. Our social media pages get huge traffic, so here’s your opportunity to put your art – and your name – in front of new eyes every day!

Submission Guidelines

  • Artwork must be original, created by you! No photographs.
  • Use .jpg or .gif format, and save at maximum quality where possible.
  • Graphic must be 200 pixels wide by 500 pixels high, and the file size needs to be under 2MB.
  • Graphic must contain the following text and URLs (formatting is up to you):

    – the company name “Coast to Coast Tickets”
    – the slogan, “great tickets from nice people”
    – our toll-free customer service phone number: 1-866-353-5167
  • The graphic must be full color. (Using the colors found on the website may improve your chances, but it’s not required. Be creative!)

Cleaning house

By Amy | April 5th, 2010

Been cleaning out the pending comments on this blog, and I can’t help but laugh. Apparently my posts are some of the most absolutely riveting literary works ever posted, anywhere – at least, according to people with something to sell in their signature files. Occasionally, they get lucky and happen to mention something actually relevant to the post. When did blog comments become nothing but a public billboard?

And to anyone wondering why our April 1 entry was posted four times, it seems our own blogging software had an April Fools joke of its own. It has since been reprimanded.

Look for a new newsletter and discount code this week, with details on the next contest to be run on our Facebook page! If you’re a graphic artist, or just think of yourself as one, you’ll want to know about this one…
