Call for Submissions: Black Rock City 2020 Sticker Designs

Design by DA

This is the official call for designs for 2020 Black Rock City stickers! What do stickers even look like in the infinite realities of The Multiverse? Which wormhole will your creativity crawl through to reach our dusty paws on playa this year?

Your design could be the one passed out with the materials you receive at the Greeters Station upon entering Black Rock City. Other designs might become official sticker swag passed out on-and-off the playa throughout the year. Help us remember our wonderful desert home even when we’re away throughout the year.

If you plan to submit a design, please read through the requirements below. We can’t print the sticks if you don’t meet the specs!

Design Specs:

Your design(s) will need to be one of three die sizes:

  • 3” diameter circle
  • 2.5″ x 5.75” with a 0.125” corner radius
  • 3″x 3″ square with a 0.062” corner radius

You must OUTLINE all fonts, meaning vector text is no longer a font but rather is vector shapes. This eliminates issues for the printer not having the font.

If using 1–3 colors, set up the file to print as PMS. If using four or more colors, set up the file to print as CMYK.

Designer Tips ‘n’ Tricks:

  • Only round stickers are considered for selection as the coveted “Greeter Sticker.”
  • Include “Burning Man” or “Black Rock City” and the year 2020 in your design to get extra awesome brownie points. 
  • Incorporate the Multiverse theme. Or don’t. It’s your sticker. But the Greeter Sticker almost always coordinates with the theme.
