Someone stole their van AND trailer with all of their equipment and clothes! That sucks. You can read the whole story at their website AND how you can help.

Cranium / Wow Loves Threadless!

by Threadless / None /

From a simple idea—giving everyone the chance to shine—a phenomenon was born. The original Cranium game came rolling into our worlds merging hilarious gameplay and artistic challenges. Now it's your turn to take a simple idea and make it into an awesome design!

Wow! What comes to mind? For the Cranium folks, it's their new (first-ever) designer board game with colorful and customizable new movers inspired by the urban vinyl designer toy movement! Be the chosen one and get a signed game, a full set of movers, Cranium swag, and the big bad granddaddy of them all: a limited run 6" vinyl WOW mover sculpture signed by Cranium co-founders Richard Tait and Whit Alexander. Valued at $1000! Say what?

Say wow!

The Secret Handshake Loves Threadless!

by Threadless / None /

“I wrote some songs cause I love her/And played some shows in the suburbs/It was the middle of summer in Texas.”

It may be set to a drum machine and singing synthesizer, but the lyrics quoted above sum up the music of The Secret Handshake better than any biography ever could. Now if only we could sum up the track "Midnight Movie" in an awesome tee design. Hmmm...

Woohoo! Take your love for love, your love for tees, and your love for midnight movies, shake it around in that big noggin' of yours and come up with an amazing design! You could nab yourself an impressive movie package, complete with camcorder, dvd player, and even candy & popcorn for your viewers!!

Watch it!

Threadspotting (11/12): Turkalicious!

by Threadless / None /

Firstly, yes, you'll all get some points for your cat pictures on the last Threadspotting blog provided the pic has both a threadless shirt and a (real) cat!!


Secondly, everyone and their grandmother emailed me about Funkalicious in the newest episode of Scrubs! If you sent over a pic, you'll get some points! I'm like king stp this fine Monday. How was the episode? Heard it was better than most lately. On with the show!


Rose emailed us about November issue of Blond Magazine, a German publication, website here! This pic is from the section where they feature portraits of interesting people and Kalle, 28, "musiker," looks pretty darn interesting in King Me Mask. Says Kalle (in his caption), "Ich habe ihn noch nie besiegt weil er einfach viel, viel hinterlistiger ist, als ich es bin." Anyone?


Elado sent us this pic from November's Game Informer magazine. The guy in the pic that is not Tony Hawk is sporting one of my personal faves, Decay. He's also rocking out in the bottom right pic as well! I'd tell you his name but look, he's hiding his name tag! Don't be shy!


Lastly, Chris sent us this image from an episode of London Ink! Apparently the person sporting Sexy Pack is a rocket scientist! Awesome!

Do you have a Threadless tattoo? Does someone you know have a Threadless tattoo? Post some pix in the comments and get some stp's, ok? Personally, I've always wanted to get Motovino across my back. It's just so darn classy.

Chuck Anderson (Nopattern) Gallery Show @ Threadless Store In Chicago!

by Threadless / None /

The Work of Chuck Anderson @ The Gallery at the Threadless Store November 9th - 23rd, 2007 Opening party on November 9th from 7pm-9pm

For our first show in our new Threadless store Chicago gallery, we are featuring the work of Chuck Anderson (aka Nopattern) Chuck is a 22 year old designer and illustrator based in Illinois. His clients include Adidas, Mountain Dew, Nokia, Rolling Stone Magazine and Sony. Chuck was also one of the first artists to do a Threadless Select shirt!

For his first solo show in Chicago, Chuck is showing both a collection of brand new original work, as well as a sampling of past commercial works. Chuck will be on hand for the opening celebration, and an exclusive reprint (in new colors) of his Select shirt will be available during the length of the show.

This show will mark the first in a series of shows in the Threadless store Gallery, showcasing the amazing work of artists we have worked with over the years.

Announcing New Inks And Print Methods For Artists To Use In Their Designs!

by Threadless / None /

When we started Threadless back in 2000, designs were printed using fairly basic screen printing methods. With the launch of our Select line in 2006, we began to encourage artists to explore new inks and printing techniques allowing them more creative involvement during production. We decided to end the separation between regular Threadless tees and Threadless Select tees by offering the use of all inks and printing techniques that we use for Select to any artist that submits.

This is super exciting for everyone! Before today, most chosen designs were printed with plastisol inks, some with a chino additive and a few with water-based or discharge inks. Starting today, designers can now use up to 8 colors, specify super glow, puff, high density, suede, UV color change, shimmer, metallic clear, glitter, blister, flock, vinyl, foils, embroidery, gradients, simulated process and even belt printing. Here's a PDF explaining in detail each of the new capabilities.

Head on over to the submit page to read more. You can also download the new submission kit which includes new tee templates in Photoshop, Illustrator and Flash, new placement photographs and PDFs explaining the new specialty printing and decline reasons.

Hold on to your hats, Threadless! Things are about to get krrrrr-azy!

A few other, smaller bonuses this change means:

  • You may now submit GIF, PNG, JPG and SWF images :)
  • Rather than 640x480, designs can now be submitted at 640 pixels wide by up to 800 pixels tall. The default size of the downloadable template is 640x640.
  • Rather than 120kb, designs can now be submitted at up to 250kb.
And don't forget! If your design is chosen you will receive $2,500 in cash & gift certificates right away and then up to another $10,000 more if you win a Bestee at the yearly Threadless Awards! You will also receive an Alumni Club Starter Kit the first time a design of yours is chosen. The kit includes a totally sweet Alumni Club Medal of Honor, an official Alumni Club membership card, tee shirt, coffee mug and mouse pad.

We are really excited to see the submissions start rolling in after this announcement. I'm sure ya'll are going to blow some minds!
