Threadless 2007 VS. Threadless 2012
In May of 2007 I screen grabbed the Threadless home page when my design, Adorable Disaster got printed. At that time, if you were lucky enough to be printed, your design and name basked in the spotlight for a solid week. It was a pretty amazing feeling. The product photos were a lot of fun too.
Flash forward to March 2012. Here's the current Threadless home page:
My new design, Happy Birds was printed on Monday. That design is represented on the main page as a small square of cropped artwork in the lower right corner, next to some of the other new prints. You have a few seconds to click on the design, before all of the new designs slide off the screen, revealing a totally different Threadless feature.
I'm not going to try to convince Threadless to go back to the old days, but dang it, getting printed back in the day was way, way, way more exciting. Am I right? Or am I right?
