When sending us your submission, please take into account the following procedures, which will help us to expedite our communication with you. The more organized and concise your presentation, the more likely we will be to consider your designs. Please bear in mind that we reserve the right to hold and review design submissions until such time as the design selection process is finalized for all publications in a season; this may take up to six months. Please do not telephone or e-mail with inquiries as to the status of your submissions. All submissions will be returned as soon as we are finished with them. Due to space restrictions, we cannot hold all designs that are submitted for the duration of the selection process. Should you receive a few but not all of your submissions back, it means we are holding the balance for possible placement and will return them as soon as the process is complete.

Designs can be either mailed or e-mailed (but not both please). Follow these guidelines for submission:

Mailed Submissions:
• A swatch should always accompany a design sketch. Please staple them together.

• Mount sketches and attach swatches to 8.5" x 11" sheets.

• Make sketches dark enough to photocopy and keep a photocopy of each submission for your own records.

• Print your name, address and phone number clearly on each page.

Include a self-addressed stamped envelope to ensure your swatches and sketches are returned.
