Time once again for you to take a load off, t-shirt designers. This week we're going to dip into memory lane and drudge up all our recent Honorable Mentions for another go-round in voting to see who, once and for all, rises to the top.

Designers: if in the meantime you've opted out of including your design in the Double-Take Derby, or sold/submitted your Honorable Mention design somewhere else, email us at shirt@woot.com by noon (central) tomorrow and let us know. Any design found submitted for voting on another site, sold on another site, or for sale on another site will not be eligible for the Double-Take Derby and will be removed from consideration. Because we're jealous like that.

We're looking at getting the following derbies in this double-take:

"Derby #266: Single Line" through "Derby #280: Gamer Lifestyle" (minus "Derby #267: Double-Take Derby 18".)

We'll include 281+ in the next DT. We wanted to have this one earlier but the Ed. Choice week and Mentions of Honor sale would have really messed with the holidays, so we pushed it back a bit. Hope you all had a great vacation!

Any chance we'll get a head start/hint on next week's Derby theme?

Yes please? I got a new wacom tablet for christmas and want to try it out! (#stupidgraphire4notworkingwithwindows7)

Not that a new tablet will make me a good designer, but STILL... ;)

It certainly can't hurt!

I'm just hanging out, really.

My thoughts exactly - Mrs. Lyonscc got me a Wacom Bamboo for Christmas and I'm hoping to try it out, as well (not that it will suddenly make me a good designer, either...)

So, no voting this week? Nothing is showing up on the derby page except the derby description and the share icons.

Wow, come on guys, submit those print-ready files!: derby@woot.com

If you're in the fog, or want to be considered for an editor's pick or the Mentions of Honor sale... SEND US THE PRINT ART!

When the double take rolls around, should we re-send all the print ready files right away?

Sorry. I didn't see anywhere in the instructions that we had to re-submit print art if we'd already submitted it during the original derby.

Is this always the case?!?

Usually it's more a case of artists only sending in print-ready files if they think they're in contention, rather than when the design is submitted like woot has asked us to do.
It appears Travis is prompting those in line for a print who have not sent the file in yet. He's not about to start e-mailing artists directly and spoiling the surprise.
That reminds me, one of my designs is sitting around last place. I better check that the print-ready file has been sent in.

I've had one editor's choice and a handful of honorable mention side sale designs. I've never had to "resend" art as I just submit it during the derby in question. I'm assuming if you sent it already you should be good. That said, I'll still shoot an e-mail off when I get home tonight now that I am good and paranoid.

EDIT: Derp.

If you already sent the art during the original derby, you should be good. Many of the designs in this DT were never sent to us, hence my desperate plea.
