While some parts are a little dated (some of the websites I mention no longer exist) it still holds up as an invaluable resource to artists and designers who want to get into t-shirt design or start their own clothing line. I wrote it while working at Go Media where I was doing tons of t-shirt designs for bands and clothing brands. I collaborated with 20 other designers to create the ultimate resource for the aspiring t-shirt designer.

“After reading this Chapter 6 (Branding & Marketing) and applying Jeff’s advice, my blog traffic has dramatically increased! This book is amazing. It’s hard to even call it a book. I think a better term would be ‘treasure chest.’ It reads like a one-on-one conversation and covers any and everything you can think of, and things you never thought of. A special thanks to Jeff for all his efforts and creativity. He has absolutely inspired me and given me confidence to jump in this industry.” – Bobby Cerda of Word of Mouth Shirts

“A must read for any designer! I’ve read through this book three times now and I’m still picking it back up to pull resources from it. If you’re at all interested in the apparel industry or even freelance design, I highly recommend Thread’s Not Dead!”- Brent Galloway, Freelance Designer

“A down-to-earth approach to designing and building a career in the commercial end of the apparel industry. Throughout the book Finley gives practical advice on good design, building a portfolio, how to find and get work, and eventually builds up to practices in professional design that include computerized printing and embellishments like special inks, foil, and embroidery. As a road map for aspiring t-shirt designers, this is a great start.” – Guys Lit Wire[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” column_margin=”default” column_direction=”default” column_direction_tablet=”default” column_direction_phone=”default” scene_position=”center” bottom_padding=”5%” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” row_border_radius=”none” row_border_radius_applies=”bg” overlay_strength=”0.3″ gradient_direction=”left_to_right” shape_divider_position=”bottom” bg_image_animation=”none” shape_type=””][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_tablet=”inherit” column_padding_phone=”inherit” column_padding_position=”all” column_element_spacing=”default” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” column_link_target=”_self” gradient_direction=”left_to_right” overlay_strength=”0.3″ width=”1/1″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” bg_image_animation=”none” border_type=”simple” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_custom_heading text=”FAQ” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][divider line_type=”Small Line” line_alignment=”center” line_thickness=”1″ divider_color=”default” custom_height=”50″][vc_row_inner column_margin=”default” column_direction=”default” column_direction_tablet=”default” column_direction_phone=”default” text_align=”left”][vc_column_inner column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_tablet=”inherit” column_padding_phone=”inherit” column_padding_position=”all” column_element_spacing=”default” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” column_link_target=”_self” gradient_direction=”left_to_right” overlay_strength=”0.3″ width=”1/3″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” bg_image_animation=”none” border_type=”simple” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_column_text]

If I buy the hardcover, do I still get the bonus files included with the digital bundle?

No, unfortunately. The hardcover is sold via third parties like Amazon and we cannot distribute digital files with them. You must choose between the hardcover edition or the digital edition which includes an audiobook and some other goodies.

Does the book go into the business side of running a clothing company?

Yes, that’s mostly what this book is. It’s about business, strategy, self-promotion, marketing, and building a fan base. You’ll find all that and more in Thread’s Not Dead.

Can I view the eBook on my iPad?

Since Safari on iPad cannot download ZIP files, you will need to download the files to a PC or MAC. Then unzip the contents and add your PDF or ePUB files to iTunes and sync your iPad. It will transfer the book to your iPad for viewing.

Does the book cover the printing aspects?

Yes there’s an entire chapter on printing techniques and inspiration. It runs through the common practices and prepping files for print and communicating with your printer.

Can I get an archive of all hyperlinks referenced in Thread’s Not Dead?

Sure! I originally created this archive of links for that purpose but it wasn’t very user friendly. Fortunately, an avid reader cleaned it up and made a more user-friendly version.

Does this book tell me how to start a clothing company?

Yes this book goes into detail on the major aspects of starting your own clothing brand. It approaches it from the perspective of a creator or designer, but even if you’re not a designer there are suggestinos on how you can hire designers to get your vision off the ground.
