It's fun to see all the designs on paper but even cooler to see them made up. Can't wait to see the results. Good luck guys.

A question for all applicants - I’m curious if potential production requirements were a consideration in your design submissions?

Cognizant that the winning design would be marketed within a set of 20+ standard inventory options, I tried to be mindful of things like stitch count/color and leather variations that can marginally drive up embroidery production costs. Additionally, only artwork elements that I drew myself were utilized in a effort to simplify licensing standards.

I could go on, but to open up the conversation for everyone - what were some of the additional considerations from the perspective of PRG having to physically craft this product that factored into your design approach?

I just designed what I'd want. If it is didn't meet there manufacturing capabilities then that's up to them..

That’s certainly one approach and I think all of your designs are very feasible from an embroidery production perspective.

As far as PRG’s capabilities are concerned, from my digging around their site, they seem to be capable of manufacturing virtually anything. And while I toyed with some pretty zany designs (i.e. tie-dye leather base on “peace in a cup”), because the final selection formula wasn’t explicitly laid out in advance, I toned down all of my entries with simpler production requirements in mind.

Now that we know the final selection will be based strictly on social media voting, I’m kinda regretting not pushing the envelope a bit more.

My approach was design simplicity within the rules. I was trying to be cognizant of limited colors choice and stitching while trying to embody the spirt of the contest and the origins of golf.

The only designs I went a little off the rails was with the TARTAN inside. I thought about making a "cloth" inside that could easily be cut and stitched. Other than that, i tried to keep things simple and easy to design.

I looked at this design as a free shot at a mad design. With the machinery available to companies like PRG, printing onto leather and complex embroidery is achievable so I decided I wanted to push the boat out and design something that I think would really stand out in my golf bag. 

I was leaving it up to the guys at PRG to decide what aspects were printed and which to embroider and make the designs stand out. 

Design wise the only thing I had to think hard about was for my alligator head design and whether this would work in an actual sample. I'm sure if there was a problem with it these guys could find a solution. But as I've always been told, go bold from the start and it can always be toned down. 

I think your tie dye idea would have been cool. You should have fired it in regardless and just saw what happened. I know that they will be higher manufacturing costs than their standard head covers but I think as its a limited run and some of the proceeds are going to charity people will pay more for which ever design is chosen. This is why I didn't tone a thing down. Just wish I had more time to design others. 

Would be great if this was my job.

I looked at this contest as an idea submission. I left the design and production plans to the experts.

Being a Navy Vet, and seeing how Top Gun 2 is coming out eventually, I thought an old school F-14/Maverick/Goose cover would be cool. Another reason I chose a non-golf related theme, was the saturation of golf-related putter covers in the market already.

I just did what I thought was cool/unique. I tried to keep in mind that it is a limited run of the cover, so it should be something not seen anywhere else. The thread count might be a but high, I think, but I imagine that it wouldn't be to difficult to make it

GolfspyChris posted this last week, so I'd give it a bit more time, but keep checking back.

 

Thanks to the most active, passionate and engaged forum in the business!

We've narrowed it down to 4-6 final designs which will be announced shortly.

Here's what happens next:

1) Each finalist will receive a one-off copy of that individual design.

2) A final winning design will be decided via voting on social media, etc.

Stay tuned!!!
