Create a design for Bow Truss Coffee Threadless Specialty Blend bags.
Coffee is so hot right now. And not the drive-through kind that tastes like hot water infused with dirty socks. We’re talking about quality cups of coffee that start with a small farmer who puts as much care into harvesting his bean crop as a barista puts into preparing the perfect pour-over. The kind of coffee that infuses way-too-early mornings and all nighters with tasty deliciousness (and caffeine).
In Chicago, Bow Truss Coffee Roasters recently opened its roasting and coffeeshop doors with the mission to serve classy coffee to cool people. This challenge is your chance to see your artwork on bags of the Threadless Specialty Blend, a heavier body coffee blend originating from Colombia and Mexico with notes of cherry, dark chocolate, and peach.
Bow Truss will serve the Threadless Specialty Blend at their Chicago coffeehouse and add it to the lineup of coffee blends available for sale worldwide on their site. There are no color restrictions on your design. Your design will be printed on the entire bag. So download the template, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and get started!
