It's Not Made In China
how to submit
First off, we want to say a big THANK YOU for your interest in It's Not Made In China, and for wanting to be a part of, our "thing". We are always happy when illustrators and people who like our product contact us.
Every few months we have to print new label stock for our bottles and when we need to print, we like to bring in some new designs. Before we go to print, we put all the illustrations we have received to a vote to choose the most popular three or six. (Three labels fit on the printing plate and we usually do one or two new plates. Unfortunately the cost of plates is quite steep and this prevents us from doing dozens of plates.) You can download the "empty" layout to help you design an illustration that fits within the confines of the label and the text. Remember that the bottle is clear so it's usually safer to use bolder, solid lines. (Thin lines can get "lost" due to the background behind the bottle clashing with the illustration.)
You can drop your illustration into the label yourself, or you can email the illustration and we'll drop it into the label.
We are open to anything with regards to subject matter. Obviously if there's a connection to water that's cool, but not necessary. Also, please remember that when we put illustrations to a vote, we have to choose labels we think will make people want to buy that bottle. At the end of the day, unfortunately, we have to sell our water. If stock sits, our customers will move on.
