He’s got style and on-screen personality, so it’s no surprise that Donald Fauntleroy Duck has landed major roles in cartoons and comics over the past 77 years. Feature films, short films, video games, TV, books, you name it! Donald has done it all. And even though he’s been at it for years, this iconic character shows no signs of retiring his sailor cap any time soon.
Your challenge is to design a t-shirt inspired by Donald Duck. Plenty of tees already feature his legendary yellow-orange bill and smiling eyes, so use this challenge as an opportunity to create a unique design that captures the essence of Donald’s being, like his cheerfulness or penchant for losing his temper. Capture classic Donald, or adventurer Donald, or whichever Donald you like!

- a $1,000 Threadless gift code
- you’ll get to pick an unprinted design to be printed

BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE! Everyone who scores 500 designs or more between Nov. 29 and Dec. 23 will be entered in a random drawing to receive one of five $50 Threadless gift codes! Just think of all the things you could do with $50 at Threadless. You could buy the best gifts ever for your friends. You could even gift the gift code. Or, you could be a scrooge and spend all $50 on tees for yourself.
First love. Forever love. Dirty love. Sexy love. Crazy love. Friendly love. Plain love. Messy love. Strange love. Secret love. Topsy, turvy love. A groovy kind of love. Shout it from the rooftops kind of love. Love for pets. Love for moms. Love for dads. Love for math. Love of chemistry. Love of your chemistry teacher. Love lost. New found love. Love of war. Love of peace.
And of course, love of designing tees!
Your challenge is to design a tee based on the idea of love.
Show us how much you care and start designing! It's like making a mixtape for the whole Threadless community.
Today we launched The Preppy Collection with designs chosen from the Threadless Loves Polos challenge. We printed both cardigans for guys and girly and polos for guys. Ross put together these images to show off the details of the polos. Check it out!

Here at Threadless, we know just how exciting and awesome online communities can be. This week’s Threadspotting, therefore, will be dedicated to some awesome vloggers doing very special work with their vlog community– and they’ve been spotted doing so in Threadless gear! WOOT!
Brothers Hank and John Green are the minds behind the very funny, perfectly nerdy Vlogbrothers channel on Youtube, but their reputations don’t stop there. The community that they’ve built around these vlogs, lovingly called Nerd Fighters, have taken it upon themselves to “fight world suck,” as they put it. Through their vlogs, music (yes, music!) and online community, these guys have been helping raise money for various charities.
Both Gary and Leah have spotted Hank wearing some classic Threadless tees. Thanks guys, and thank you, Hank!
Make sure to check out Project for Awesome, a project these guys created that asks Youtubers to upload videos promoting their favorite charities on one specific day with the hopes of flooding Youtube with enough videos to spread some awareness and raise some money! So cool!
Remember, as always, if you see Threadless tees in the wild, send us a note at email@example.com and we'll talk about them here... AND we'll give you some Street Team Points to boot! Enjoy!
We’d like to introduce you to some new friends of ours. Drew, Roxy, Roman & Chad will be hanging out & hosting challenges with some amazing prizes to sprinkle some fun this holiday season. Check them out below!
That’s 12 more days to submit a design shows the problems in a family of cuckoo birds. Or why zombie parents just don’t understand. Or why Big Foot blames his bloodline for never being able to find cool shoes in his size!
Review the challenge here and then get to work, Threadfam.
Do you subscribe to our newsletter via a gmail account? If so, you might be wondering why you didn't get our sale announcement email yesterday. Well, that's because for some reason Google has decided you don't want to see our emails. Despite our best efforts to send you a bit of inbox joy and to only send email to people who open our email, our emails this week have been landing in the spam box on Google.
Fortunately for us all, Google's actually pretty democratic about this kind of thing. We can all help fix this without sleeping in parks or occupying squares. All you need to do is the following:
- in gmail, search for: in:anywhere threadless
- in the list of emails, look for those that are tagged as "spam" and select them (or click into one)
- click the "move to inbox" button
You're done! You've just helped ensure you'll get future emails from us and that other subscribers are more likely to get theirs too.
Of course, we'd also value your feedback on our email. Drop a comment here or you can email me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to comment offline.
We hope you’re all kickin’ back getting ready for the big day of eating, football, and sitting. We certainly are. But once your tryptophan hangover releases you from your slumber, we figure you’re gonna have some time on your hands. So, here’s a list of stuff to keep yourself busy the rest of the weekend while you snack on leftovers!
18 Threadless employees shaved their faces clean on November 1st and are growing some sweet lip covers for charity. 12 Mo Bros and 6 Mo Sistas are will be revealing their organic and non-organic 'staches at the end of the month.
We'll post a link to the pictures and we'll have you pick your faves. In the mean time, consider donating to Team Threadstache!
