August is our birthday month here at Threds and we are celebrating 25 years of service by sharing a timeline of how far we have come since 1994.
Rooted in humble beginnings, Threds officially launched in August of 1994 as a retail clothing store selling salvaged vintage jeans. Screen printing followed shortly in 1996. To highlight our screen printing origins, here’s a tip on how to brand on a budget utilizing our services.
When planning a custom T-shirt order on a small budget, consider the following:
Select a simple 1-2 color design that will reduce the cost of your overall spend while still being able to successfully portray your logo or message.
Consider a 1-print location verses multiple print areas on the garment. You can achieve great brand visibility with a single front or left chest print option, like the examples below.
Comfort over brand. Consider going with a cheaper brand of shirt that can provide the same level of comfort. You’ll save on costs, but not at the expense of quality.
In 1997, Threds included promotional offerings into our business portfolio. This allowed us to expand our overall custom branding capabilities and garner more corporate business. Check out Threds pick of the top 5 go to promotional items for any occasion:
2. Tote bags
3. Writing instruments
Embroidery joined the family of offerings in 1999 to service clients who wanted a more formal branded apparel look and feel. Check out our list of items that are a best fit for embroidery services:

4. Jackets (non-waterproof)
