Please note: This contest is now closed. Check back later for the winner!

Here's another great store that I've never featured on my blog, even though I've been a big fan of theirs for years! It's called, and it's a fun T-shirt store for ladies, gents and children where users can submit their own designs and photos, as well as rate other artists' designs. I've picked up some unique tees for friends as gifts over the years cuz the quality is great and the styles are HIGH-larious.

What's more, just kicked off their huge spring sale today, with dozens of tees from $5 'til March 23rd! To make things even better, Threadless is giving one Budget Babe reader a $25 gift certificate that you can use towards any purchase on their site. To enter, just visit, then tell us which tee is your favorite in the comments. Good luck!

Be sure to use a valid email address and include info(at) in your address book so we can contact you if you're the winner. Comments must be posted by 12 noon ET on Monday March 23 to be eligible to win. One lucky winner will be chosen at random, and will be announced on Tuesday March 24.

Hurray for another giveaway! My favorite tee would have to be "New World Order" by Tony Aguero. It's sort of steam punk and reminds me of the Iron Giant, which I saw with my little sister the other day haha :o). Yay robots!
Runner-up would be "The Motive" by Heiko Windisch of two panda bears operating a robot on a wheat planet in space. Notice the trend here? (Yay robots!)

Word - Decree arguement....nice

I enjoyed reading them all lol!
#4 Susan F. on 2009-03-16 13:13
OK, I actually have this tshirt: in bright yellow that I bought from the F21 site (Heritage 1981). I guess that F21 actually looks at sites like these, finds something they think will be popular, probably buys in bulk (licenses), and then sells them? Interesting!
#5 Claudia on 2009-03-16 13:15
Eeee! Love Threadless. My heart belongs to this one:
#6 Sal (Homepage) on 2009-03-16 13:19
I'm a fan of funny shirts...especially when women wear them as opposed to the classic "funny guy" :-)
I would have to say this one is my fav.

"I supplement my personality with witty shirts"
#7 diana on 2009-03-16 13:29
The "Pollock" tee is my favorite! I not only love the design, but I love the artist too!
#8 Ida on 2009-03-16 13:39
I like the "Were on the same level". It's a dinosaur and giraffe hugging. Too cute!
#9 Nicole Michelle on 2009-03-16 13:48
I'm a fan of the dictionary + thesaurus word/decree tee....i'm a nerd like that.
#10 Colleen on 2009-03-16 13:50
My fave would be from long ago "Flowers in the Attic". It's a little gothic/morbid, but I love it because it tell me to turn something so dark and pessimistic to something bright and hopeful.
#11 Thanh-Tu on 2009-03-16 14:02
aw so cute! i dont know what to choose from!!!! but i guess my favorite is "my career plans were more exciting when i was five" haha

thanks for the giveaway bb!
#12 Neira on 2009-03-16 14:14
Oh my goodness.....there are so many. But I must say, I love the one that says, "Shakespeare hates your emo poems."
It makes me giggle!

Lovin' the giveaway! xDD
#13 Alicia on 2009-03-16 14:17
Thanks for the giveaway. I love "Nothing Rhymes with Orange" The site of the maniacal looking fruit and the weeping orange is great. So cute.
#14 Sarah on 2009-03-16 14:24
The "Cookie Loves Milk" one!
#15 Erica on 2009-03-16 14:25
I love threadless but have put t-shirts on a shopping ban due to this uncertain economy. One I have been watching is "A Simple Plan".

reminds me of playing atari with my brother in the 80s.
#16 Cynthia on 2009-03-16 14:28
I really loved "The Sound of Colour" shirt. Simple, but that's the beauty of it!
#17 Emilia on 2009-03-16 14:30
"When Pandas attack"... full, belt-printed screenprint!
#18 Eileen on 2009-03-16 15:02
If I had to narrow it down to only one, then "Someday". OMG, so many cool ones!!! :-)
#19 Jenn on 2009-03-16 15:15
Aww, "The Bubble Maker" just makes me smile. :-)
#20 Eralk Fang (Homepage) on 2009-03-16 15:22
Haha there ARE a ton of cute ones... I think I like "Nostalgia was Better in the Old Days"... because it sure was... :-)
#21 Nana on 2009-03-16 15:24
Okay, I am never able to pick ONE favorite on threadless, but one I love because I am obsessed with pancakes is: :-D
#22 Sandra on 2009-03-16 15:26
OMG Cookie Loves Milk! So cute; I only wish it were an OREO instead of a choco chip cookie. Ah well. :-) I seriously drink a gallon of milk a week by myself and don't allow myself to buy cookies often, because I'll go through a whole box in a few days. :p
#23 Hilary on 2009-03-16 15:34
my current favorite is "tools of the trade." i have a MAJOR weakness for art supplies (office supplies too). i just bought threadless t-shirts as gifts for my brother and friend. i haven't actually bought a threadless t-shirt for myself, though.
#24 grace on 2009-03-16 15:46
I love all of them they are super cute, but my fave is the "my career plans were much more exciting when i was five" because that describes exactly how im feeling about school and my future right now!
#25 joleyn on 2009-03-16 15:49
Hypotemoose! I'm a math nerd sometimes...
#26 sasha on 2009-03-16 15:58
I'm a big Cold War buff, so I really enjoy "The Communist Party."
#27 Kim M. on 2009-03-16 16:03
I love the "Stick Figures In Peril" red t-shirt!
#28 Gina on 2009-03-16 16:17
my favourite definitely has to be the bar of soap that says "rub me in your butt" hehe
#29 Roxi on 2009-03-16 16:22
"Extra Pulp" made me giggle.
#30 Trang on 2009-03-16 16:31
they're all so clever and interesting! i love I Am Shy But You Can Reach Me by Sarah Musi
#31 Crista on 2009-03-16 16:45
there are so many cute designs, but I'm really liking the "blow with the wind" right now.
#32 lise on 2009-03-16 17:17

"Her Hair" would have to be my favorite.

I love how huge the image is, this shirt is rad.
#33 Meg on 2009-03-16 19:14
ooh my FIRST giveaway!
some of the designs are great .. but not so sure how they would look on a shirt. My FAV design = it's kinda sadistic, but stilll suppa' cute!
#34 Symphony (Homepage) on 2009-03-16 19:21
My favorite is Dark Side of the Garden. So funny!
I also like the one shown in the post because my nickname is Toast!
#35 Bryn on 2009-03-16 19:44
Bubble Maker's adorable.
#36 Catherine on 2009-03-16 19:45
The "God Hates Techno" tee makes me giggle:
#37 Lisa on 2009-03-16 19:49
I love the t-shirt with the vampire teeth.. and braces! It's absolutely hilarious! Reminds me of back when I was an angsty kid with braces... :-)
#38 Kitty on 2009-03-16 20:06
I love the Playin' In The Sprinkler by Jason Bergsieker
#39 bunny on 2009-03-16 20:32
"Eggs, Milk and..." by Michael Valadares Ferreira- amg so cute!!
#40 Julia on 2009-03-16 21:01
I've been a fan of Threadless for a long time, I went to their store here in Chicago a while back when it first opened, been meaning to get back over there.

I've coveted the partly hungry skies tee ( for a long time.

though I really don't like wearing t-shits, I've figured out ways of cutting them and what not to where I can alter a t-shirt and make it comfortable for me.

I got the 'IMMA EAT CHOO' shirt for a friend ( and regularly get other presents on there!!!!

#41 Justine on 2009-03-16 21:03
Terrific giveaway! My favorite tee has to be When Pandas Attack by Jimiyo vs. AJ Dimarucot!
#42 Jessica on 2009-03-16 21:33
Love all of Threadless' designs--they have so many cute ones of cookies and such!

But the favorite would have to be "It's just safer to assume I know karate" by Rolf Nelson. Any girl walking home by herself at night through Brooklyn would feel safer and more awesome just wearing it! :-)
#43 Amy on 2009-03-16 21:41
My favorite would have to be "My Playtree" by Plard Yoann. I think it's probably because I have a freakish love for books :-)
#44 joy isobel (Homepage) on 2009-03-16 21:44
I love the communist party one, it's so funny.
#45 rosalie on 2009-03-16 21:50
thanks for the link.
i just order twenty different tees for my son, in addition to a couple for me.
my favorite? The Greek Mixology! :-)
#46 Isabel on 2009-03-16 21:57
I own more Threadless t's than I can count (I'm actually wearing the one with the unofficial Threadless crest on it right now), but I keep going back and forth on ordering "I listen to bands that don't exist yet" and I keep waiting for Voyage of Discovery to go on sale. Glad you're giving Threadless a shout-out!
#47 Abbi on 2009-03-17 00:41
My favorite is "The Icecreamator."
#48 Deanna on 2009-03-17 03:30
I like animals

All-Conference Squirrel

but my favorite favorite (couldn't find it on the website) is "Take Me To Tokyo"
#49 Helen on 2009-03-17 04:34

Uh, on the front page alone, my favourite is "In the Beginning". Please don't ask for overall. I just couldn't.

(Remember when Threadless was like. 25 designs or something? Naww.)
#50 Aisy on 2009-03-17 07:41
I love the Type Tees, but my favorite design is RED by Kneil Melicano. I really like the animal designs by The Boy Fitz Hammond too. They are so cute!
#51 Fei-fei on 2009-03-17 08:24
I like the "Bat and Rob" tee.
#52 Katherine on 2009-03-17 12:02

It's kinda simple, and I'm not sure I get it, but I really prefer the clean design to the usual messiness of graphic tees.
#53 Catherine on 2009-03-17 12:44
My fave is the sprinkles one!! I love it so much!
#54 Kaci McVay on 2009-03-17 14:46
I like "her hair"
#55 Gloria on 2009-03-17 16:35

i smile every time i see it
#56 Bo on 2009-03-17 21:20
I love the shirt that says "while you were reading this shirt, I took your wallet".
It's awesome =)
#57 George Hassler on 2009-03-17 21:48
I have had my eye on the yellow tee with the squirrel striking the heisman pose. LOVE IT!
#58 AnnE (Homepage) on 2009-03-17 22:12
I love the
Cookie Loves Milk by Jess Fink
#59 sena on 2009-03-18 09:55

#60 Rebecca on 2009-03-18 11:08
i supplement my personality with witty shirts, got to be my fave!
#61 Sherome on 2009-03-18 18:03
My favorite is the Lions are Smarter Than I Am. The Zombie Thriller t-shirt is pretty awesome too though.
#62 Erin on 2009-03-19 11:40
The Procrastinators: Leaders of Tomorrow is my fave because it describes me to a tee, so to speak.
#63 Izalika on 2009-03-19 14:03
"Playin' In The Sprinkler" tshirt with the donut and icecream dancing in the sprinkler that's sprinkling out sprinkles one is so cuuute. hahaha
#64 Nicole (Homepage) on 2009-03-19 23:06
"RED" is my favorite. The graphic is so well drawn and I love the play on a classic fairy tale. No wonder it's sold out! Hoping for a re-print on that one for sure!
#65 Iska on 2009-03-20 15:41
"The Downside of Genetic Engineering" is awesome! I love the graphic artwork it's so adorable that the watermelons, that haven't been genetically modified to be seedless, are crying because the doctor is pointing out that they're outdated. Wish I could buy this one :-)
#66 Hana on 2009-03-20 20:17
My favorite is pillow fight. I've wanted this t-shirt for forever now! My brother has one but I really want one too:'(!!
#67 shioyin on 2009-03-21 00:13
My favorite has to be Stat City. I wear mine all the time!
#68 Lacat on 2009-03-21 05:17
Brian Morris "By The Moonlight" Is the one my daughter loved
I liked Cat Bait by Christine Newsom AND Don't Trust In Cute Bunnies by Matheus Lopes Castro
#69 bina edwards on 2009-03-21 23:07
i love the "forget science, I'm donating my body to MAGIC" shirt. Classic way to stick it to the smarties.
#70 qian on 2009-03-22 01:08
I like the Saber-toothed Tiger Tee!
#71 Carolsue (Homepage) on 2009-03-22 02:52
My favourite hands down is "foxy", I've been coveting it for a while!
#72 Alison on 2009-03-22 20:31
I love threadless, its impossible not to find something great there at any given time. right now i'm digging octadecapus!
#73 anntje on 2009-03-23 01:54
Whoa so many choices, it's so hard to decide. I want them all!!! So I guess I would choose Lemuria.
