Chicago’s Bow Truss Coffee Roasters, which opened earlier this year as a high-end roastery with a retail location in Lakeview, is holding a design contest for it’s ‘Threadless’ blend.
And unlike many design competitions, Bow Truss is not merely looking for free labor. The company is paying the winner. Handsomely, in fact.
The winning designer will receive $2,000 cash, a $250 Threadless gift code, a screen-printed wood plaque of the design and the full line of Bow Truss coffees, plus one bag per month for a year.

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 it 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 can create a design for the entire bag, but keep in mind a sticker goes on the front. So download the template, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and get started!
