Threadless Launches Comics-On Tees at Comic-Con

Yesterday I showed you the new Comics-On Tees series by Threadless. Today I thought I’d share with you a few photos of the Comics-On Tees launch party that took place at Comic-Con 2010. Threadless’ presence at this years Comic-Con is part of the Threadless Everywhere Tour which kick started at the beginning of July and runs though October when they will celebrate the 10 Year Anniversary of the company. For more information on the Threadless Everywhere Tour click here.

The Comics-On Tees series is available now from Threadless for $20 a piece and $70 for the entire set. The lucky few that attended the launch party had the chance to score signed copies of the set!

Rocket Science

Okay, I’ve said in the past that I am a hug fan of Glenn Jones but the only tees that I own of his are those that were available at Threadless. I think Rocket Science is the breaking point for me. I need this shirt. It’s filled with all kinds of amazingness that I must have it. Glenn, how do you do it? How do you come up with these genius ideas? I want your frontal lobe.

Rocket Science is printed on a black American Apparel blank and is available now from Glennz Tees for $19.95.

ShirtFight! Get Ready To Step In The Ring

Calling all designers – get ready for the newest tee design contest site to hit InternetLAND. The name of the site is ShirtFight and it was started by husband and wife duo looking to improve on the current crop of tee design competition sites. They’ve done their research and have also approached designers for their input as to what they would like to see in a competition site. Although the site is not officially open (they open on March 5), you can sign up to receive a 5 day advance notice of the first design challenge. 

Miss Etti, one part of the founding couple, sent me ShirtFight’s pledge to the tee design community:

  • We’re going to keep things fun, that’s important to us. We’re doing weekly themed competitions, and we’ll keep them interesting. And we aren’t just going to throw cash at the winner and call it a day…that’s boring! I can’t give you any details just yet (it’s hush hush), but we have a lot of great ideas to put a smile on the faces of our artists and community members every day.
  • We’ll always keep our community priority #1. We’re nothing without you guys! That’s why we’re going to keep the lines of communication open, constantly ask for your opinions and feedback, and do what we can to make this the most artist-focused t-shirt design competition site out there!
  • We want to keep the individuality and the uniqueness for our community (the artists *and* the customers)…and to achieve that we’re never going to carry more than 21 shirts at any given time. It drives me nuts to see hundreds of pages of shirts on a site…it’s like being lost in a sea of tees! By showcasing the very best designs, we get to focus everyone’s attention to the talents of the artist. Plus, if we only carry a select number of designs at a time, this eliminates the “Damn, everyone is wearing a Threadless t-shirt!” syndrome.

The weekly cash prize will be $500, but in celebration of their launch, the first contest will be two weeks long with the winner receiving $2009 cash! Pretty awesome, eh! And think about it, your chances to win at ShirtFight might be better than at some of the more crowded and established competition sites. Why not try ShirtFight out when it opens on March 5 – are you up for a good fight?
