So we are fast approaching our milestone fiftieth issue, yikes!, and we thought we would get our brilliant readers to submit some cover designs. It can be whatever you want, as long as it's somehow motorcycle related and has DicE on it somewhere. You can snag our logo from this template if it helps. The artwork will need to be 5.75" wide by 8.25" high. You will also need to add a 1/4" bleed to those dimensions, this part will be lost when the paper is cropped at the printers. The deadline is April 15th. Please email submissions to <a href="mailto:matt@dicemagazine.com">matt@dicemagazine.com</a> along with a photo and some info about yourself for the artist bio page. This is going to be great, we are well excited!

I'm gonna take a swing at this.

There's a lot of artistic talent in our world so I'm sure you'll see some good shit.

Wait... I get confused easily...

So are those the overall dimensions and you need .25" of bleed applied to that?

Or is that the live area so we need to add .25" to those measurements??

Making it 6" wide X 8.5" with .25" bleed?

Yea, sounds like you'll be adding .25" to the dimensions shown on the template.


This sounds like a cool opportunity! Count me in for something weird/trippy.

DicE is pretty eclectic with their cover choices so I wouldn't be discouraged from coming up with something yourself. You never know what you'll see on the cover :)

Looking forward to the entries. I for one suck at art, so I will be the bystander.
