New Threadless Kids Exclusive Designs!

by Threadless / None /

Hey everyone! You may have noticed we printed five designs this week exclusively for kids!!!  We're experimenting with doing this more often as it gives us a lot more flexibility for our kids' line. 

Up until now, we've only printed kid-friendly adult designs on kids' clothing.  So it's a huge step for Threadless Kids! to choose designs specifically suited for the young folks.

This also means more designs in total will be printed.  Currently the design payment for designs that end up as exclusive Threadless Kids! product is $500 cash + a $250 gift certificate. We’re psyched to print even more cuteness in the future!

Here are the designs released this week:

Carpooling is Fun! by Alvaro Arteaga

My Worst Fears by Wenceslao Almazan

Don't Eat Me by Adhika Rahmani

I Love Fairy Tales by Lim Heng Swee

Space Chase by Alex Solis
