2019 Holiday Shipping Deadlines

The 1920s, also referred to as the Roaring Twenties in the United States and the Golden Age Twenties in Europe, brought about the birth of the Jazz Age, iconic dance moves and the inspiration for this week’s design challenge. Will you channel the luxurious and modern style of Art Deco, the glitz of the movie industry, or the underground mystery of prohibition when creating your repeating design?


This August we’re stepping back in time for our weekly design challenges. We knew you might get hungry along the way so we’re starting with a tasty treat before your adventure takes off. To sweeten the deal, August will be the first month the entire top 50, previously top 25, will be made available for sale in the Marketplace. Don’t forget to verify your Spoonflower account so your designs are ready to go if you find yourself in the winner’s circle.


  • 1st place winner will receive a $200 Spoonflower credit.
  • 2nd place winner will receive a $100 Spoonflower credit.
  • 3rd place winner will receive a $50 Spoonflower credit.
  • Remaining top 10 designs will receive a $20 Spoonflower credit. The top 50 popularly-voted designs from each theme will be automatically made available for sale in the Spoonflower Marketplace (provided they are a verified seller) where they will receive 10% commission on every sale -- no $5 swatch required.
