How are the submissions chosen?
The scoring system gives us an idea of which designs our community thinks are great. Then we look at the top scoring designs every couple of weeks and pick out designs to print based off the overall score, comments, and of course, its general awesomeness. We make the final decision of which designs are printed. Anything close to or above a 3 is considered a very high score. Remember, designs are only scored up to 5. A low score is no reason to get discouraged; many printed Threadless designers started out with low scores, too. Use the feedback to reinvent your design and take it in a different direction!
If your design is chosen for print, Threadless will contact you via email. You’ll be notified sometime between 7 to 90 days after your design finishes scoring.
