Thread or Dead is a small bunch of people who make awesome t-shirts full of blasts from the past and don't forget the zombies!

Greetings Adventurers, we are Thread or Dead a small little t-shirt company from the heart of the UK! We've been working in the t-shirt industry for the past 10 years and have seen all manner of tees come and go and none of them featured the type of stuff that we would like to wear out and about - so we thought "we can do that" and so we set about coming up with this little t-shirt house!

Thread or Dead combines the best of retro television, games, movies and music from your past into awesome t-shirt designs. Stir in a little zombie action and we've got some killer t-shirt designs ready to be rocked here, there and everywhere!

Our first four designs are our absolute best so far, and backers will be getting their hands on them first! We have a small preview of each of them and will be adding more updates throughout the printing process so you can see exactly what you are supporting, and exactly what you are going to be getting!

So, lets get started ...

First, the biggest memory we all had was of our days geeking it out travelling through Blackmoor, and then eventually an awesome cartoon that we rushed home to watch. So here is our tribute to Dungeons & Dragons!

We then racked our brains further and the discussion went a little crazy (thanks to lots of beer) and we discovered the star of our second t-shirt. The almighty Shredder! This dude was so badass, and his foot army were ace too ... so how could we not include him (albeit a little worse for wear!)

Third, we began digging through our old action figures and immediately fell back in love with the Visionaries. These guys were the business and always kicked ass with their badass holograms! Check out the third design ..

Last but certainly not least, all of us used to collect these pink little wrestling dudes called M.U.S.C.L.E and we still have a lot of the figures today. So what better way to end the first round of Thread or Dead tees than with this design.

So, there we have it ... we would love for you to get involved in Thread or Dead and get your hands on these t-shirts first! Thank you for spending this time with us and we'll get on with updating!
