Threadless Prints - Meet The Screenprinters!

by Threadless / None /

We are overjoyed to be working with 6 of Chicago's finest screenprinters for the creation of the high quality Threadless Prints you'll be checking out every Monday!

Screwball Press Started by Steve Walters, Screwball has been printing posters, cd packaging, and a variety of other collectible items for Chicago's indie rock community since 1991. Walters also runs Screwball Academy, a hands-on course in the screenprinting process, teaching and mentoring young artists, many of which have gone on to start their own studios.

Sonnenzimmer Sonnenzimmer is the joint venture of Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi creative endeavors. Together they work, paint, print, and welcome visitors at their Roscoe Village location producing amazing posters, art prints, artist books, and record covers.

The Post Family Everything is for the growth of our family members and community by supplying them with the resources and inspiration to accomplish their individual goals.

Mat Daly Screenprinting since 1999, Mat paints, prints, and creates posters out of his small Chicago studio. A frequent collaborator with Bird Machine's Jay Ryan, Daly's impressive client list ranges from "your amazing underground rock band" to the Museum of Modern Art.

Delicious Design League Spearheaded by the team of Billy Baumann & Jason Teegarden-Downs, Delicious has been screenprinting since 2003, doing everything by hand. They not only print for us, they will gladly design & print artwork "for your band or play or movie or bris." They also dabble in some apparel.

Dan Grzeca Since 1996, Dan has been creating art prints and concert posters under his own name and out of his shop, Ground Up. With screenprinting, he tries to make the prints "look as tactile as possible," applying "the perspective of being a painter to being a printmaker." Check out more of his work at his etsy store.

We've taken great care in their development and creation, and of course in their sturdy shipping vessels (as seen on Tee-V), so they'll arrive safe, pristine, and ready for framing. Priced at $35 apiece.

Lollapalooza! New Loves Challenges!

by Threadless / None /

Hey everybody! The Threadless Loves page has a new look, a new format, and we're celebrating it bigtime with… (drumroll) Threadless Loves Lollapalooza!

We all know Lollapalooza as the amazing 3 day music fest here in Chicago but were you aware of the actual meaning of the word? "Remarkable or wonderful person or thing!" And so for this leadoff Loves challenge, we want you to design an exceptional tee based on the true meaning of Lollapalooza! Your design could nab you a truly insane amount of prizing including 2 plane trips, tickets to the fest, tickets to the pre-party, an awesome hotel set up, and a slew of awesome stuff courtesy of Lollapalooza and some of the top artists of the fest! Submissions will be accepted through June 12.

Let's kick off the new Loves format with a bang! Be a Lollapalooza and give this challenge a shot!

A Big, Warm Welcome To Our Newest Employee!

by Threadless / None /

Hey everyone, Jake here. I'd like to share some very exciting news with you.

Thanks to you, Threadless is still growing like gangbusters. On top of that, we have tons of new Threadless ideas that we want to make real. We also have a number of additional skinnyCorp projects that we want to launch. In order to make sure we can do all this stuff, I decided it would be a good idea to hire someone who could help.

It had to be someone with the right background, who understands skinnyCorp / Threadless and shares our vision to grow the company with passion, honesty and integrity. We searched high and low, east and west, and in our tee shirt drawers, and we found a guy who we're really excited about. His name is Tom Ryan and he just started working here as our new CEO.

Tom's been working on the web since '96 when he started an indie music download company called Cductive, which was bought by eMusic. He also worked at Virgin Mobile USA and EMI Music, where he oversaw the company's global digital business. Tom's spent most of his career helping grow companies that bridge the creative world and technology / web world. We're glad that he's here to help us with that at skinnyCorp / Threadless.

Tom will work closely with me, Jeffrey, Harper, and the rest of the skinnyCorp team. In partnering with Tom, it will free up a lot of my time to focus more on new, fun and strategic ideas for the company to pursue. My new title will be CSO (Chief Strategy Officer) and I will be strategeree-izing all kinds of awesomeness for everyone starting NOW! Look out!

A big warm welcome to Tom! Yay :)
