Pinchflat Artwork Submissions due March 15, 2012


What and Why
Wild Goose Creative, in partnership with Yay Bikes!, Make Believe Monsters, Bike OSU, and Jeremy Slagle Design, announces a call for entries to a bicycle-inspired poster show called Pinchflat 2. Posters will be displayed and sold at Wild Goose Creative and www.pinchflatcolumbus.com starting with a poster party on Saturday, May 5, 2012 and continuing through the end of May.
All posters will be created by artists in Columbus or central Ohio. Artwork included in the poster show will encourage bike riding, celebrate the art and craft of bikes, or invite thought about bikes as an important way to get around Columbus. Artwork might also be designed to persuade people to get on a bike in the first place!


Specifications
Posters should be silkscreened, etched, lino cut, or letterpressed and should measure at least 11×17 inches. Each poster will be priced to sell at $30 and will be displayed along with between 20 and 30 other posters. Artists will be responsible for having their artwork printed and delivered to Wild Goose Creative for exhibition and sale. Wild Goose Creative and Pinchflat will retain the right to handle sales of posters for the duration of the exhibition.
20% of proceeds will be retained by Wild Goose Creative.



Printing
Don’t have access to printing resources or can’t front the money to have posters printed? Consider asking a friend or business with whom you have a relationship to sponsor your poster, investing money up-front that they will then make back when your posters sell. Poster sponsors will receive credit on title labels in the exhibition at Wild Goose Creative and will be noted on the Pinchflat Columbus website. We suggest that you consider the following businesses for printing:

Once a proof is submitted, notifications of show entry will be provided within 48 hours of receipt. A run of at least 20 posters must be printed and delivered to Wild Goose Creative by May 1.
