Archie Comics and Threadless have teamed for a new line of comic-inspired apparel and accessories for you to show off to your friends.
The new Archie Comics-themed items feature unexpected fun takes on the classic Archie characters including Tarot card-inspired designs, classic logo artwork, cheerleading and biker art styles, and art from the recent Sabrina the Teenage Witch comic book series reboot, all available now at archiecomics.threadless.com.
“Times are tough and at Threadless, we want to help. We’re refocusing our entire company to help support independent artists and small businesses who are hurting the most right now.”, said Jake Nickell, Threadless Founder & CEO in a press release from Archie Comics. “We’re excited to see Archie Comics develop this amazing line of merch for their fans. I’m loving the Tarot card designs!”
The partnership dovetails with an expanded effort by Threadless to promote and support its network of independent artists who may be impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak, many of whom rely in part on the company’s wide-reaching ecommerce platform for income. The new Community Action Plan includes a significant increase in earnings for artists of up to 60%, via reduction in base apparel fees through May 31. Threadless is also now offering free online shop set-up as part of this program, and as always, zero out-of-pocket expenses. Threadless’ services are also available to small businesses who could benefit from merchandise sales featuring their logo or other brand owned artwork.
