Threadbird (which is the printing wing of Storenvy) have released the latest version of their website (2.0 if you’re counting), and to go along with all the new features (more info for each product, new quote request form) and products they print on (business cards, postcards & more) they’re doing a similar promotion to the one they did last year. In 2010 they gave away a load of t-shirts which if I remember correctly were designed by Godmachine and had a seven colour print, it was a good way of showing off their printing abilities to potential clients (and clothing line owners that wanted a free tee). This time around the shirts aren’t free for everyone, but they aren’t far off. This years shirt (above) is designed by Mumford, and you can only get one if you are connected to the clothing industry in some way, though it would appear that they’re pretty easy about how connected you are, as this list shows:
To qualify for a free shirt you MUST be one of the following.
1. Run or work for a Clothing Company.
2. Be in a band or work with bands (label, manager, booking agent, etc)
3. Be a graphic designer that designs t-shirts
4. Run some type of website that has to do with t-shirts, music, or the arts.
5. Work for some type of company that would need tshirts printed at some point.
If you’re American (and in the United States) you can get a shirt completely for free, by heading to this link and signing up. If you’re outside the US then you can get a shirt for $1 + shipping, which is still a good deal. The freebies and $1 tees are only available for the first 500 orders, after which everyone can get it for $6 + shipping at the link I provided for non-US folks.
