Sponsorship

We are delighted and excited to have sponsors for our challenges!

To be a sponsor of Sketch Saturday you must agree to ship worldwide as every one of our challengers have a chance of winning your prize.
Here's what happens...
Usually a sponsor donates a small prize, such as a store gift certificate, stamp set, craft products or  digital download.  Challenge participants enter the weekly sketch challenge for a chance to win your prize.  :D

As a thank you, your store badge with a link to your website or blog will be added to the Sketch Saturday sidebar, approximately 4-6 weeks prior to your sponsored date.  We recommend a maximum badge size of 220 pixels wide.

Note - A year after the last sponsorship date, your store badge and link will be listed on the past sponsors page of the Sketch Saturday blog.

If you wish to provide a short bio about yourself and store, please do so 4-6 weeks prior to your sponsored date.  This information will be included in your sponsored Sketch Saturday blog post.  

If you provide a gift certificate badge or prize badge, this will be included in your sponsored post. 
Also, please let me know of any special offers, current sales, new releases or news at the time of sponsorship. We like to promote our sponsors as much as possible!  Thank you.

ree Images...
We NEVER ask for free images, and it is not expected of you if you decide to sponsor Sketch Saturday. We are here to offer inspiration to other crafters and are not here to gain free digital images.  We are a sketch challenge blog, we are not linked to any company, our design team is free to use whatever images they wish.

There are occasions when sponsors offer digital images to use the week of sponsorship.  Of course we are very grateful for the offer of images to use for your sponsored challenge.  In such a case the design team will be given the option to choose a sponsor image to use the week of the sponsorship. Please understand that not all our DT members use digital images.  It is not compulsory for the design team to use a sponsored image or product, however if an sponsor image is requested the DT member promises to use the image that week.  

Some of the team who are on other DTs (especially those representing a company) may be asked by that DT to use one of their images on a certain week. When this is the case, our challenge is linked to another by that DT member, our sketch provides the layout, the other company provides the materials used. So although the offer of free images is very much appreciated, there will be times when we cannot accept those images, and we would never accept them if we were unable to use them, that wouldn't be fair to you or your company if we did.

Choosing Winners...
At the end of each challenge, it's time to choose the winner.  We use Inlinkz link-up tool to manage our challenge entries and select the winner at random.  I leave a message for the winner to contact me with their postal or email details, which I then pass the information onto the sponsor for them to send out the prize!


PLEASE NOTE: 

ALSO, the first Saturday of each month is DT week, and a sponsor will normally be arranged by each member directly themselves.  However, if you wish to sponsor a DT member then let me know and I'll find out if that member agrees.

I appreciate that this doesn't leave many weeks left that are free to book for sponsorship, but we are happy to book well in advance and have sponsorship arranged for up to 12 months ahead!
