How to Earn from Home by Creating T-shirt Designs for Threadless.com
With days passing I keep finding more and more interesting opportunities for working online. In one of my previous posts I wrote on how freelance designers can make money online with no investment. This niche looks interesting to me, so I started to dig deeper and deeper and I came up with yet another opportunity for those, who want to work online and get paid for doing design work.
This article dwells on the earning possibility for those, who have design skills, if you are not a designer but would still like to make money with freelance work, please check out my article about Amazon Mturk.
The website I came up with is called Threadless.com. This is a large store of T-shirts with unique designs. I bet they have a lot of clients because everyone wants to look unique and fashionable. So now they are holding a design contest for the bets T-shirt image or design. On their website you will be able to find a submission kit, which will show you how to apply your design to a T-shirt and submit it for review.
Currently there are such prizes for best designs:
- $2000 for the best-rated design
- $500 in-store gift card (which is an equivalent of 200 dollars in cash)
- Additional $500 for every reprint of your T-shirt design
- Premium membership for all promising participants
Apart from designing T-shirts for money, you can also use your rhyming skills and try making up some slogans to onto shirts. It doesn’t hurt to try but if your slogan is voted the best, you will receive 500 dollars for it.
Even though there is no guarantee that you will win a contest at Threadless.com, it is still a golden opportunity to practice your design skills and may be improve your knowledge. There is a feature on the website, which allows you to submit your design for critique. What can be better than a free recommendation from professionals?
And finally, Threadless.com has an interesting member section, where your activity is rewarded by special points (that is equal to an in-store credit). Getting free shirts just for your activity on the website – it is still a very good deal.
