About the design
on January 24, 2008
I'd been wondering if Threadless would be able to overprint existing shirts, and thought it might be a good idea for the Revolution competition, since the idea of the contest was to try to come up with something new that hasn't (hopefully) been done on a shirt before.
The idea is that Threadless would overprint a random selection of shirts from stock with a transluscent ink so that you could still vaguely see the original design underneath, and the shirt you ended up with would be a bit of a lucky dip. The colour of ink could change too, to suit the shirt it's printed on.
You could get a brand new shirt or something older from stock, but the overprint would mark it out as being something different.
I hope I've described the idea correctly, and you like it. Ta!
