Sometimes the best way to get motivated is to feel the prints for yourself, so we recently launched the Threadbird Sample Store on Storenvy . We’ve printed up some great sample t-shirts and screen printed posters showing off the inks we use, allowing you to make an informed decision before you place your order.
Our sample t-shirt comes in either Black or Heather Grey. The men’s shirts are printed on Canvas 3001 (4.2oz 100% Ring Spun Cotton). The women’s shirts are printed on Bella 6004 (4.2oz Ring Spun Cotton). Both are great, comfortable and stylish options. The shirts come with a descriptive postcard which explains each ink used on the shirt design.
The best part is, each shirt is only $5 with free shipping. If you like what you see (and we hope you will!), when you get your shirts printed with us, we will give you the $5 back as a credit on your order! Just let us know that you ordered a sample shirt and give us your Storenvy order #, we’ll handle the rest!
Screen Printed Posters
Our sample screen printed poster is a 3-Screen Print. We used white, a silver metallic and a light blue to dark blue split fountain gradient to create these posters. The art is an adaptation of our sample shirts, and a great showing of the things we can do with our screen printed posters.
The posters are printed on Mr. French 140# Speckletone Kraft and 140# Black Top. Just like the shirts, the posters are only $5 with free shipping, and we offer the same credit when you place your order with us.
Storenvy = Free Online Stores + Social Shopping Marketplace
Threadbird = Quality Screen Printing that Crushes the Competition
Since 2008, Storenvy has offered two things: (1.) awesome online stores and (2.) awesome screen printing. Both services have grown and have their own passionate users and customers that we absolutely love. Well, as of today, we’re announcing that we’re making the screen printing service its own thing: Threadbird. This gives us the chance to give each service the attention it deserves.
Storenvy will continue to offer FREE online stores and a killer social shopping marketplace http://www.storenvy.com while Threadbird will continue to offer quality screen printing that outdoes the competition every time http://www.threadbird.com.
Scott Anderson (@holidayatsea) and (@nickroccanti) have taken over Threadbird, while Jon Crawford (@NewMonarch) and Janette Crawford (@janettecrawford ) continue to expand Storenvy. The two companies, now separate, will continue to support each other just like they always have!
We’re the same people, the same shop and the same printers printing the shirts the same awesome way. At Threadbird, we’re growing and expanding to offer new services and even better sales and customer service support. Be sure to follow us on Twitter @threadbird & fan us on Facebook for awesome sales and updates.
Everybody meet Shane.
A good friend of mine, Shane Stiles, has recently joined our team. If you email firstname.lastname@example.org he will most likely be the one responding. We’re stoked to have him on our team helping take things to the next level and improving our overall customer service.
To celebrate Threadbird’s new name and website we’re offering a killer sale. From now until the end of September get $0.70 off of our list price on all printing. So get your printing on!
Last but not least, if you aren’t already on our mailing list, be sure to sign up right now so that you don’t miss important sales, discounts and updates.
Last Thursday night at the print shop was awesome. Thanks to everyone who came out, and especially to I Am The Trend, who hosted this amazing video podcast. I know it’s an hour long, but there’s a lot of useful info in it, like…
All about Storenvy’s next big website launch, which will be coming in a month. (I revealed lots of secrets about the system that you can only hear if you watch!)
How to run a successful T-shirt company — how much money to start with, how many shirts to print, how to promote yourself, product photos, customer service, etc. Good stuff from Tim at about 16:00.
Tips on tee printing for bands.
Iain schooling everyone on screenprinting at about 41:00. (Half-tones: Let Threadbird do them for you! Pantone numbers: Iain knows them all by heart.)
My food cravings right now.
From left to right in the video are Craig and Tim from Assault (they publish some great tutorials, check them out), Adam from I Am The Trend, me, and Beau from IATT. Jumping in later are Jud from ShirtFight and Iain, who runs the Threadbird print shop. (Sorry that it starts with me rambling, but someone forgot to hit the record button earlier.)
