threadless-type-tees-autocorrectGlobal design community Threadless has launched Type Tees, a 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 launch of the Threadless iOS app, 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, in a press release. “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.”

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.
