Design A Birthday Themed Shirt For American Cancer Society

by Threadless / None /

Birthdays are an excuse to eat confetti cake and make merry over a day in which we did nothing except be born. For cancer survivors, birthdays are also an opportunity to celebrate another victory. Thanks in part to the work of The American Cancer Society, nearly 14 million cancer survivors will celebrate another birthday this year. And you can join in the fight for less cancer and more birthdays by designing a birthday themed tee. So grab your party hat and get to work!

25% of sales from the chosen tee will go towards The American Cancer Society, but your design should not include brand logos.

Check out the prizing and submit your design!

We’ve got a lot of awesome women workin’ at Threadless, all with their own style. So many of us picked up something from the new Select Summer Collection, we decided to wear them all on the same day so we could see the different ways we style outfits around them! We’re all especially excited about this launch because it includes more than tees. The Summer Collection also has tanks, dresses, and dolman tops.


Apparently, a lot of us like Oscillocity by Richard Fulop. And check out uncannyxjen aka Jen rockin’ the men’s version!

Gap + Lollapalooza Quick Design Challenge! Win Tickets!

by Threadless / None /

Howdy designers! Wanna go to Lollapalooza on Threadless and Gap? Then do we have a challenge for you!

We want you to design the elements of a "do it yourself" summer concert tee! Our friends at Gap will have a digital printing machine at the fest pre-loaded with your elements for fans to arrange, thus, creating their very own unique tee. It's a little different than what you're used to, so let's break it down (much like a sweet drum break).

  1. Design between 5 and 7 separate elements for the tee. Create anything from actual objects to random shapes. Lolla folks will mix and match the elements to create different designs.
  2. Colors must be CMYK and NO WHITE!
  3. The blank tees will be grey, so keep that in mind when creating your elements.
  4. Post your designs in this blog! You have until 10am July 2.

At the end of the week, representatives from Gap & Threadless will choose the favorite and you and a guest will be heading to our fair city of Chicago as a VIP at Lollapalooza!

Got a question? Email with the subject "Lolla"

Threadspotting: Street Art Edition

by KyleGeib / None /

The world of rogue street art can seem so fast-paced and short-lived sometimes. It feels as though before we have the chance to tell friends, “You should check out this awesome piece of street art at (insert intersection),” the installation or mural is whisked off the face of the earth, only to (hopefully) exist as photographic evidence. Because most street art straddles the border between artistic expression and vandalism, it’s not always met with the open arms of a community. But how would a community feel if there was street art out there with a constructive purpose, while still injecting a healthy dose of social commentary?

Street Artist XAM Her Hair by Federico Rodriguez Morice

Meet XAM, a street artist with a knack for architecture, functionality and birds. That’s right, birds. XAM has been diligently working on a rad project in which he constructs aesthetically beautiful birdhouses and hangs them on urban street signs in public places. The birdhouses are fully functional, in fact the dwellings are rigged with solar panels and LED “porch lights” to attract insects, a feeding unit, and adequate ventilation for those city-slicker birds.

Along with his birdhouse project, XAM also fabricates bird-shaped gliders. Check out this cool video of XAM doing his thing in Mexico, while rocking Her Hair by Federico Rodriguez Morice. COOL! via Elefgant’s Youtube page

Remember, as always, if you see Threadless tees in the wild, send us a note at and we'll talk about them here... AND we'll give you some Street Team Points to boot! Enjoy!

Threadless Goes To Chicago Pride Parade 2012!

by Threadless / None /

We’re so excited to be a part of the Chicago Pride Parade for the third year in a row! The Threadstaff in the midst of creating our awesome float. Can you guess which Threadless design we’re recreating in gigantic 3D float form?



If you’re in the area on June 24, come wave at us as we float by! We might even have some SWAG for ya. Check out the route. Can’t wait to see ya!

Last year we made a giant robot.

The year before we made a giant cat head.

Choose Your Favorite Villain And Submit To The Disney Villains Challenge!

by Threadless / None /


For every one of our favorite Disney heroes, there’s a villain who stands in their way. A true Disney Villain is more conniving than your own ugly stepsister, and they’ll stop at nothing to wreak evil on all that is good. But for what they lack in goodness, these characters make up for in personality. The shorter their tempers and the more vengeful their schemes, the more we love to hate them!

Now is your chance to create a t-shirt design inspired by the villains listed below. So practice your meanest scowl, rehearse your villainous cackle, and start plotting your most evil design yet!

Keep in mind: You can create a design with your favorite Disney Villain or several. If your design includes more than one villain, the characters must be proportionate to each other. Villains can touch but they cannot interact. For example, a design like Reunion Tour is permitted, but This Game Sucks would not be. Also, steer clear of altering the costumes of the villains.

The Evil Queen Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Maleficent Sleeping Beauty Ursula The Little Mermaid Cruella De Vil 101 Dalmatians Dr. Facilier The Princess and the Frog Jafar Aladdin The Queen of Hearts Alice In Wonderland Captain Hook Peter Pan

Bring Conan To The Threadless Atrium!

by Threadless / None /

Conan presented his show from Chicago last night and unveiled a gigantic 17-foot bobblehead and announced he’s donating it to Chicago! And now, they’re tryin’ to find a place to put it. We think it it would look pretty sweet hanging out at Threadless HQ. Tweet “Hey @TeamCoco! Put Conan in the @threadless atrium! #COCOBOBBLE” if you agree!

Design A T-Shirt Inspired By The Music Of Flatfoot 56.

by Threadless / None /


Flatfoot 56 is a Celtic punk band of brothers and friends from Chicago. Attend one of their shows or listen to one of their albums, and you’re guaranteed a high-energy mix of vocals, bagpipes, mosh-pitting, maybe a broken rib or two... you know, the kind of music you and your parents can really bond over!

To get ready for the release of the next album 'Toil' in July, your challenge is to channel the music of Flatfoot 56 and design a t-shirt to be worn by both die-hard fans and new fans to their music. So check out their past three albums for inspiration or download their new single from their upcoming album, and get started!

Your design should not include logos.

Check out the prizing and submit your design!

MTV's Teen Wolf AMPersand by Andrew Sale

Now, we know that this television show is a dark re-imagining of the incredible, funny and classic Michael J. Fox movie of the same title, but we have a plot/setting suggestion to take the next season in a new direction. Here’s a hint:
