More Shopping!!

YES, this is a shirt.

And I want it.


How about this is the coolest T-shirt site ever? They have tons of unique and original designs - all as the result of creativity from the average Joe. The catch here: they allow registered users to submit their own artwork to their gallery of designs, which is actually a huge contest to win $2000. Other users can "score" the designs, as well as order their own shirt - $15 for guys and $17 for girls - all sizes.

This unique idea is the result of the collaboration of "the two Threadless Jakes" - Jake Nickell and Jacob DeHart, after Jake Nickell won the NMUF London T-Shirt Competition. They are offering a bundle of prizes for the best designs each week, including $1500 cash, a $200 12 Club Membership, and $300 in gift certificates for "Threadless" to purchase some of your shirts.
We look at the top 300 designs every couple of weeks and pick out around 10 designs that we want to print based off of the designs score, comments, and the number of i'd buy it's. Ultimately the decision of which shirts get printed are left up to us. The scoring system helps give us a general idea of which designs our customers want.
They have Photoshop and Flash Templates available on their site to help guide you through the design process - then the sky's the limit! Submit your shirt design and promote it for 7 days to see if you can get into the top 300 and get the two Jakes' attention! You can submit as many designs as you like! They also have a gallery of photos of people wearing their shirts and a challenge section with mini-prizes and stuff called "Loves Threadless" to help keep you inspired for new shirt designs!

Here are a couple more of my faves, before I go:

Happy Shopping, Cr@zies!
