Don’t just shop on Threadless, create on Threadless!

Community Features


If you’re a t-shirt junkie, you’ve no doubt long ago fallen in love with the wonders of With original ideas, regular sales, and decent quality products, few places are better for meeting your monthly quota of short-sleeved shirts. But have you ever stopped to wonder where those original ideas come from? If you’re imaginative enough, they could come from you!

The shirts sold on Threadless start as creations in the Threadless Community. The site always has an open call for t-shirt design ideas, and site members can submit and vote on other people’s submissions to help pick which shirt will be the next selected for production. Becoming a member couldn’t be easier — if you’ve ever signed up to buy a shirt, or simply signed up for free without making a purchase, then you’re already in the club.

So what’s in it for you? How does $2500 sound? Each shirt that gets published comes with a $2000 cash pay out for the designer, as well as $500 in Threadless store credit. Don’t worry if you’re not artistically inclined, either. While Threadless is always looking for great visual designs, they’re also looking for slogans too. My stick people may look like chicken scratch, but I’ve been using my charming wit to create original ideas on Threadless for years. And while none of my slogans have been picked up for publication, participating in the community and seeing the work of others always makes a visiting the creative side of Threadless a real treat. (on a side note, winning slogans pay out at a smaller $500)

So what are you waiting for? Put on your thinking caps and see if you can’t win that $2500!
