What Happened to Threadless?

Then things changed. In January 2014, Threadless laid off more than one-quarter of its staff, cutting 23 of 84 jobs, and closed its Lakeview retail store. Search trends for Threadless, with the exception of December spikes for holiday shopping, have pointed down since 2011. Since 2014, Threadless has actually lost Twitter followers, falling from 2.2 million to 2.13. The less tangible cultural significance Threadless once had has dissipated in the last five years.

In the wake of the shift, Threadless experimented with different ways to compensate designers. Under the royalties and rights terms introduced in 2014, the weekly design competition no longer awarded a $2,500 prize (these days the general competition prize is a $250 gift code), but artists retain all rights to their work and receive royalties on each sale. A short-lived plan to crowdfund shirt designs launched in 2014, but ended up producing few winners.
