Dell Offers Laptops with Threadless Graphics

dell_threadless.jpgThreadless, they of the crowd-sourced t-shirt designs, has joined forces with Dell to make some of its most popular graphics available on the lids of laptops and netbooks. Dell customers now have the option to customize their machines with one of 11 Threadless designs, including a painterly yellow daisy by Bryan Ische, an urban jungle scene by André da Silva Cruz, and “Grandma’s Hot Air Balloon” (pictured) by featured student artist Brent Schoepf. The selection of designs will be refreshed regularly, and those inclined to matchy-matchiness can order coordinating t-shirts and prints from Threadless.

“We’re very excited to team with Dell in giving Threadless designers a new canvas to showcase their art: the laptop cover,” said Jake Nickell, founder and chief strategy officer of Threadless, in a statement announcing the partnership. “As we move into our second decade, this is an amazing opportunity for Threadless artists to expose their designs to a broader audience while giving Dell customers the ability to personalize their Dell laptops in a cool way.” In other Threadless news, the company has just kicked off the Threadless Everywhere Tour, a three-month, cross-country celebration of its tenth anniversary. Once that wraps up, it will be time to fete the release of Threadless: Ten Years of T-shirts from the World’s Most Inspiring Online Design Community, which will be published by Abrams in October.
