There’s nothing like a good crowdsource business model that benefits both clients and suppliers. In the garments business, I’ve had a few friends who were also graphic designers have me upvote a few tee designs for Threadless.com. If their designs were chosen, they’d get USD $10,000 and have their work printed on shirts for sale.
