Feeling green? Pin it to win it.


It’s that time of year again…Chicago rivers run green, people don kelly-hued apparel, and little leprechauns seemingly forget to flush. Every mid-March this seems to happen—all in the spirit of being Irish.

So how will you celebrate this St. Patrick’s Day? Chasing rainbows to their very end, hunting four-leaf clovers, or searching high and low (especially low) for real, live leprechauns? Nahhhhhh. We have a better, easier idea for tipping your hat to this Irish holiday. Instead you can kick up your heels and take the CafePress Luck o’ the Irish Pin It Challenge. It’s fun, it’s (P)interest-ing, and even involves a pot of gold. Or…something along those lines.

One lucky lad or lass will win the Grand Prize. And four will win great prizes as runners up. All you have to do is enter on Pinterest to possibly (hopefully, luckily?) win!

Here’s how:

  • Follow CafePress on Pinterest (Don’t have a Pinterest account? You can request one by emailing pinterest@cafepress.com and we’ll send you an invite to join!)
  • Create a Pinterest board that represents the spirit of being Irish. Then title it “CafePress Luck o’ the Irish Pin It Challenge.”
  • Your board should include at least 10 pins that relate to the theme, but the more pins the merrier (or luckier)! At least 5 pins must be CafePress products (check out these awesome examples of St. Patrick’s Day T-shirts, buttons, bags, and more).
  • Under each pin, include the hashtag #CPirishluck.
  • Once your board is complete, email a link to your board to pinterest@cafepress.com Then you’re O’ficially entered!

What you could win:

  • GRAND PRIZE: $100 AMEX Gift Card plus a $100 CafePress Gift Certificate
  • Runner-Up Prizes (4 in all): $50 CafePress Gift Certificate
