Meltdown’s 20th anniversary is coming up and we’ve decided to make special buttons to commemorate this historic event. We wouldn’t be here without the support of our fabulous, creative customers so we want you to be our designers! All you need to do is download the 1 Inch Template  and start creating.  The only requirement is that you do one of our Meltdown logos in your own style.  We’ll be picking the best 20 to use for the buttons.

Here’s our previous run.

What do you get besides the glory and sense of pride that you have served the Meltdown empire?  Once our secret panel judges picks the top designs, we’ll notify the winners who will get 20 free buttons of their design.  And we’ll put your Facebook, Twitter, web site, blog, etc., information on our website and blast it out via our own social media. GLORY!

Submissions due by Oct. 1st, 2013
