Surprise!

Many changes have come about within the Collar Factory office over the last year. Our founding web administrator has moved on (though she still does some off-site work for us) and the rest of us have stepped up and taken on different aspects of the Collar Factory functions. It has become a real TEAM effort and is working very well.

Although nothing has been posted here over the past year, it is our hope that we can start posting some updates to alert you of new and excited items that have arrived.

So...please check out the new leathers, gems and hardware that have come in over the last year.

* NEW LEATHERS: We now have 5 colors in our metallic leathers! Gold, Silver, Red Blue and Purple. We have also added a Teal leather as well.

* NEW GEMS: We have added DOME Gems in Purple, Red, Sapphire, Onyx and Crystal. These sit higher than our original gems. We have also added a "stone" looking gem as well...named Gemocite and it comes in Rose, Purple and Green.

* NEW STUDS: We have recently added several new stud designs as well...allowing for some wonderful design capabilities.

Come check our website out and create some new collars, cuffs and belts for your upcoming fall wardrobe!

As I'm sure many of you know, the FA: United convention is coming up in just a few months!

Because we've developed such a great relationship with Fur Affinity and the folks throwing the convention, Collar Factory is going to have a page in the Conbook.

This is where you come in: We have seen some truly stunning art around our forums, and we'd like to put some of that on our page.

The prize (IMPROVED): $75 off your next collar or cuff purchase or $50 cash to your PayPal account! Not to mention credit for your art on the page, and extreme bragging rights. PLUS: After the contest, all entries will be posted on a special, contest-entries-only thread on our forums, because even if we don't choose your image, we want everyone to see the beautiful work you've done.

The guidelines: Show us your character! Well, it doesn't actually have to be your character, but we would like to see a furry/animated character. PG-rated, please - no nudity, sexuality, or violence. Please depict the character prominently wearing a Collar Factory collar and cuffs, since that's what it's all about!

Technical (UPDATED): You may submit your entry in any web-friendly format, but if selected, the graphic must be available to us at a minimum of 8x10" at 300dpi, or in vector format. Send entries to webmaster@collarfactory.com, with the subject line "Furry United Art Contest Entry." Please keep all submissions under 2MB.

Due Date (EXTENDED): May 15!

Please note: You will receive credit for your art on the page, but we will retain all rights pertaining to the use of the image. We will not ever resell your image, but we may reuse it for future Collar Factory promotions, with credit.

Want special lettering or a specific design engraved on your Collar Factory collar or cuffs? We can't do it in-house, but we just met someone who can! He can engrave almost anything onto almost any leather strap, and he can even do limited leather embroidery. Learn more about it on the forums.
