How to sponsor CSI

We are excited that you are interested in sponsoring CSI!

CSI has over 4,400 members from around the world, and we continue to grow daily. We welcome all sorts of sponsors, from manufacturers to kit clubs to stores to scrapbooking classes to Etsy shops.

Sponsoring CSI will give your company exposure in the following ways:

  • During your sponsorship month, your logo, will be posted on the front page.
  • During your sponsorship month, your logo will be posted in the challenge reveal, along with a link to a sponsor page which has a description of your company, links to your website, blog, and other social media.
  • Your company's name and logo will be included in newsletters that are sent to our 4,400 members for each reveal.
  • Your company's name and a link to your website will be permanently listed on our main page, in the sidebar.
  • CSI will "Like" and promote your company on our Facebook page.
  • CSI Design Team members may mention your company in their blog posts.

By committing to sponsor CSI for a month, we ask that you:

  • Donate a prize for our players. (You may choose to donate one prize for the month, or one for each Case File.) The prize may be in the form of product, a kit, or a gift voucher.
  • Pay to ship the prize to the winner.

In addition, we invite your design team to serve as guest designers. This is not a requirement for sponsorship, but we have found that having your designers serve as Guest Detectives garners more attention for your company, and we've had very positive feedback from participants.

If you are interested in serving as a sponsor for CSI, please contact Debbi Tehrani at or send me a message through the CSI Inbox messaging system. Please title your email "CSI sponsorship" followed by your company's name.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
