Can you feel the LOVES?! Seriously, can you? Starting next Sunday (October 1), we're psyched to be launching the Patent Pending Loves Threadless contest! Design a tee to the theme of "Cheer Up Emo Kid," a hot track from their first label release, Save Each Other, The Whales Are Doing Fine. Get those artistic emotions rolling because you only have until November 1. And then, it's all over but the crying.


Too many cool prizes to mention, so you better go check it out for yourself!

Watch this

I can see this being a REALLY PAINFUL theme to vote on already.

cheer up emo kid? oh god

Aptent Pending's music is sooo bad, I knew friends or theirs in highschool and they were also known to be dicks. Finally, don't you think this compitetion is just a little too much like a hot topic contest...Anyways its nice to see threadless get love, no matter who its from.

Yeah this is gonna be a very 'samey' contest to judge methinks. We already have a lot of subs that could qaulify!

to many loves comps...luckily they aren't all my taste. it's good to have a mix...gives us a break now and then.....but oh god, i can see some of the subs now...
hearts, whales, hangbangs, skinnylegs, hugging, tears.....

lovesushi

Just when we're trying to get the tag team competition off the ground too... I think we need more designers for that one though, come on peeps!

this brings me back to my previous blog, I am sick of all these damn contests! Threadless is turning into a fucking band / movie promo site with no quality control.

i think the loves concept is catching on quick as threadless gets 'heard of' more and more...i can understand not turning anyone (band, business) away yet...but i imagine as they get bombarded with offers, they should start picking and choosing....
but, what can you say, this band probably appeals to the voting audience.
now is the voting audience also the designers? most often, no.

potentially, i think there could be some good designs.. but fuck potential, i can just imagine what they're gonna be like...

Hey threadless, I have a cool product called Vi@gr a, how much will it cost me to buy your love?

blonde8007

fiddlywink46

I knew friends or theirs in highschool and they were also known to be dicks.

Don't talk about things if you have no idea what you're talking about. I live down the block from the two brothers in this band, and were the ones who lived in Virginia. I was actually in a band with their other brother so I practicly lived at their house, and they are by far the some of the nicest people I know and I am not talking about to me, I mean to everyone they know. As far as their music goes... I am not a fan, but they worked hard and played about 4-5 local shows a weekend for about 4-5 years straight so I am glad to see them finally make it.

I don't think this is going to be a good chapter in bad subs.

nedoow

Its already been done by a guy I know in NZ.

that painting is actually called "Cheer Up emo kid", circa 2001.

nedoow

Actually, look at his site. I put it together for him, but his shirts are nice, if you like that kinda style GrimmStats

atombender

Patent Pending's song has been around for a LONG time, too.

It's a brand new day.
It'll be ok.

nedoow

yeah, I have no prob with it, I was just highlighting the relative commoness of the theme...

KristyGrl

I actually think these subs could be pretty funny. Looking forward to it
