Free Veer Ts

The good folks over at Veer (the stock image & font library) have recently revamped their site, and in an attempt to coerce us into blogging about it are letting us have five of their Creatives Understand t-shirts to give away to you lot, totally free.

We're generally a bit wary of this blog becoming a mindless promotional tool for PR machines, but we've always liked the way Veer works, so we're happy giving them a quick nod. If you'd like one of their t-shirts*, just drop us a comment in the box below (make sure you fill in the email box) telling us what size you'd like (XS to XXL), and we'll give you a shout.

They've also asked us to mention that they've got a 25% discount thing going with their various of their fonts over what's left of the summer

*First come, first served; one per person; UK only

UPDATE - Thanks for entering folks - competition's now closed, and we'll be sending out the t-shirts to the five winners mighty soon.
