For any new entries you'll need to do it like expertoc did for the sticker to come out right. HIS/AMD sent over the drawing, but it isn't situated right if you have a case winner. If you already did a design then no worries, but you can flip it around before the gfx is printed up in sticker form.

Wow guys this is pretty embarrassing… it looks like indulgedesigns and I used the same elf in our cards. I wasn’t sure if I should post mine now, but I spent the last 2 weeks working on it so I’m going to anyway. I guess I’ll try and change it before the contest deadline since it apparently needs to be flipped anyway.

I chose this one because it expresses my love to paint, even though I don't get to do it too much anymore.



(Tweaked it a bit)
OK I just flipped it and put it in my original post, hopefully it's the right way now :P

Yeah, I just flipped mine over too. I edited my original post to reflect the change. It was a little tricky but it worked out just fine.

Hey forest_wind; that's too bad that you've both used the same image. What are the chances? I'm sure if you kept it like it is, no one would hold it against you. Accidents happen. That's why I tried to stay away from any clip-art or royalty-free images. There's always the possibility that someone else would find the same image and use it, thereby sending you back to the drawing board.

I sorta just assumed it was all supposed to be original artwork... Will flip my image today. What are the chances that one person got the template right...

Yes, copyrighted. As far as I know all of these have been 'Royalty Free' - therefore not copyrighted. I still think it's nice to be original artwork though...

It's the chance you take when you *ahem* steal *ahem* images.

Hi stefandent,

With the original template HIS sent us, it was mistakenly the wrong way round. This meant that that if your design had text, when the design was applied to the graphics card and installed into a case, the text would be upside-down.

You can choose to flip your design now, or wait to see if you've won and flip the design then.

It won't affect judging if you've used the upside down template or not.
