826 National Tee Now For Sale!

by Threadless / None /

If you’ll remember from a couple months back, our content team ran a writing workshop at Threadless HQ with a bunch of very creative 826CHI students. The whole idea came from our Atrium challenge with 826 National. Partnering with an organization that has a secret agent store, a space travel store, AND a pirate store was the perfect fit for us. These storefronts are connected to their classrooms, where 826 volunteers and staff help kids ages 6 to 18 hone their writing. 826 National is a nonprofit tutoring, writing, and publishing organization with locations in eight cities across the country.

Words Create World’s is Arkady Zaifman’s first print, so give him a hand! 25% of the sale of this tee will benefit 826 National.

More Opportunities To Do Good With Threadless + Unicef!

by Threadless / None /


Hey Community, As you already know, we’ve partnered with UNICEF USA, BBH New York, and artists Christine and Justin Gignac to launch a t-shirt line completely different from anything we’ve done before.

Good shirts do good. The design on each shirt symbolizes the type of aid UNICEF is delivering in the Horn of Africa. 100% of your donation will go to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to support life-saving relief efforts for children.

This is one of the most amazing projects we’ve worked on and we want your help spreading the word. Here’s what you can do:

  • Post threadless.com/unicef to sites or forums that you subscribe to or are a member of.

  • Share your favorite tee with your friends and family.

  • Like the Good Shirts page on Facebook.

  • Tweet about it. Wear something good. UNICEF #GoodShirts benefit the #hornofafrica http://ow.ly/7ccQo

  • Vote on designs for our UNICEF Good Shirts Voting Challenge from November 7 - 9 and tell your friends to join Threadless to support this cause. If you score 300 or more designs over the course of the three days, you’ll be entered to receive one of the shirts. We’ll select one person a day. They get the tees, and we’ll donate on their behalf to the US Fund for UNICEF.

  • Support the cause and grab your favorite Good Shirt or give one (or several!) as a gift.

Join us in doing good!

Love, Threadless

Submit A Design For Loves Political Parodies! It's Your Civic Duty.

by Threadless / None /


Politics have been really tense lately. We hate to see everyone so divided! Let's lighten the mood a little and send a reminder that everyone poops.

Your challenge is to design a political parody tee.

We know, we know. Suzy Manners says "don't talk politics." But we figure it's probably fine to "draw" politics, right?

Poke a little fun at the powers that be. Show us dinosaurs and robots running for office against each other or the Tea Party having a tea party. Design whatever it takes to make everyone laugh a little.

Submit your designs then we'll vote on them. Because that's the fair thing to do.

Read about the prizing and submit ideas here.

Good Shirts Do Good For Children In The Horn Of Africa. You Can Help.

by Threadless / None /


You may have noticed a new tee on our site with a little price tag of $300,000. World’s most expensive tee? Maybe. But it’s also a tee with the greatest super powers in the world. It can save lives, really!

Insecticide Treated Mosquito Nets for UNICEF Measles Vaccines for UNICEF Deworming Tablets for UNICEF High Energy Biscuits for UNICEF Ready to Eat Therapeutic Food for UNICEF Therapeutic Milk for UNICEF |DTG| Basic Family Water Kits for UNICEF |DTG| Water Pump for UNICEF Emergency Tent for UNICEF Motorbike for UNICEF 100 Metric Tons Of Corn Soy Blend for UNICEF |DTG| Cargo Flight for UNICEF

The Cargo Flight for UNICEF and the 11 other Good Shirts we’re selling represent aid that UNICEF is delivering in the Horn of Africa. Put $18.57 towards a Mosquito Net tee, $73.13 towards a Therapeutic Food tee, or $75,000 towards a Corn Soy Blend tee, and we’ll donate exactly that amount to U.S. Fund for UNICEF. They’ll then use that money to support support life-saving relief efforts for children in the Horn of Africa.

Why there? The Horn of Africa is experiencing a humanitarian crisis. More than 13 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, including 4 million children. Hundreds of thousands of children are at imminent risk of death in parts of Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia, where millions of people are affected by the worst drought to hit the region in decades.

Christine and Justin Gignac are the artists who designed the tees. In July 2007, they started WantsForSale.com, a site where they sold paintings of things they wanted, at the cost of the actual item. They then took their project a step further and launched NeedsForSale.com. The site follows the same structure as Wants, but all the proceeds go to charity. Through the sale of paintings and limited edition prints, Needs For Sale has raised more than $7,000 for various causes. Now, they’re using the same concept to help the U.S. Fund for UNICEF make an even bigger impact on the lives of children in the Horn of Africa. If you’d like to help too, head over and grab a Good Shirt!

Men For Women Now T-Shirt Design Challenge

by Threadless / None /


Design a t-shirt for Men for Women Now

What would compel Jack Black to get a mammogram on camera? Or inspire Zach Galifianakis to speak to women about the breast thing they can do for their health? Well, men love women and there’s a whole community of them rallying behind their favorite ladies in the fight against women’s cancers. Men for Women Now, an initiative created by stage IV breast cancer survivor Noreen Fraser, is an online community and resource center for men with wives, sisters, mothers, and friends with cancer. Your challenge is to create a t-shirt design for the organization to empower and educate men to support the women they love.

Though cancer is a serious and life-threatening disease that affects thousands of women each year, humor and laughter can help with coping and recovery. Without making light of women’s cancer, create a design that’ll provide comic relief. The chosen design will be sold on guys and girly tees and 25% of the sale will go to support the cause.

And here's the big news: We're giving you $10,000 to design this shirt! Why? Well, we expect you to wear it 5 times as much as any other shirt. It is your favorite tee, after all.

Let's Make A Tribute To Steve Jobs

by skaw / None /

This image above is what got me interested in making art & code with computers. I was in 7th grade in the early 90's and lucky enough to have a few Macs in our school library. I started playing with HyperCard, creating interactive stories that you could click through. Choose your own adventure style :) ... I was hooked. I spent many long afternoons after school in the library, not wanting to go home. Soon I figured out how to make web pages, went to art school, started connecting with other like-minded creatives on the Internet, started Threadless, etc.

Steve has changed so many of our lives. If your life was impacted by him, please share your story here. Or make something in tribute and post it up.
