Turn Witty Slogans Into Custom T-shirts With Threadless' New Type Tees iPhone App

App Allows Users to Create Type-Based T-shirts On-Demand

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- Threadless, the global design community, today launched Type Tees, an exciting new mobile application that allows users to create custom text-based t-shirts instantly from their mobile devices. Users of Type Tees can upload personal slogans to the app, stylize the text with over 20 prefabricated typefaces, then easily order and share their creations socially. Released a month after the successful launch of the Threadless iOS app by the same name, Type Tees provides a way for individuals to create their own personal t-shirt, regardless of graphic design skills or art experience.

"The concept for the Type Tees app was inspired by the sheer volume of slogans submitted to Threadless," said Jake Nickell, Threadless CEO and Founder. "We were receiving more slogans than we could feasibly print, and this app is a fun and engaging solution that allows anyone to bring their words to life on a tee. Whether you come up with a ridiculous slogan that must be commemorated, or want to represent your baseball team with the perfect hilarious mantra, Type Tees lets you speak your mind through an original tee fit for any situation."

Type Tees' features allow users to easily:

  • Create, order and purchase text-based tees in a matter of minutes
  • Print personal slogans on tees through an easy-to-use interface
  • Choose from a variety of templates to make each tee their own
  • Share designs with friends through interactive social media capabilities

As with the Threadless app, the Type Tees app was developed by Prolific Interactive, a New York and San Francisco-based company that specializes in mobile products for leading brands and startups. Both the Type Tees and Threadless apps are now available for free download via Apple's AppStore.

Threadless is also running a limited time promotion for a $5 credit for any new downloads of the Type Tees app.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
