Griffin + Threadless Debuts New Spring Cases for iPhone
Nashville, TN — March 31, 2010 — Griffin Technology Inc., maker of ingenious ways to power, play, protect and connect, today unveiled two new Griffin + Threadless cases for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G, just in time for Spring. The cases feature the best-selling Threadless T-shirt designs, Rainforests and Fail, and are now available at Apple Retail Stores nationwide.
"Active artist communities like the one behind Threadless require a diverse offering of designs," said Luke Michas, Director of Product Development, Soft Goods, at Griffin. "We are proud to expand our line-up of Griffin + Threadless cases, ensuring there is something for every taste."
The Griffin + Threadless Co-Op Initiative delivers a one-two punch against boringness, with two new case offerings for April: Rainforests and Fail. The artists describe their work:
"The richness and freshness of the rainforests give us such great enjoyment. We should treasure them forever!,” says Threadless designer Yeoh Guan Hong.
"This design is a childhood rhyme, all twisted up. I think cows are just the best subject matter!,” says Threadless designer Budi Satria Kwan.
Rainforests and Fail, like other designs selected for the Griffin + Threadless Co-Op Initiative, appear on a Griffin-engineered low-profile case. No more than a millimeter thick, a single-piece polycarbonate shell snaps into place to provide protection from dust, dings and boredom. The result is a technological statement as comfortable and unique as the T-shirts from which they are derived. For more information about the artists and tees behind the designs, visit www.threadless.com/griffin.
Previous Griffin + Threadless cases are still available, but supplies are limited. View the entire range of cases for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPod touch at www.griffintechnology.com/coop/threadless.
Pricing and Availability
Rainforests and Fail, $34.99, will be available April 1st at Apple Retail Stores nationwide and at www.griffintechnology.com.
We’re not your average t-shirt company. The designs on Threadless tees are sourced from an ongoing open-call for t-shirt submissions from a worldwide community of amazing artists and designers. Once submitted, our community of over 1 million members casts votes that help decide which designs become Threadless tees. Threadless began in 2000 as a hobby and has since become the poster child for the power of crowdsourcing: integrating the involvement of a passionate, authentic and highly active community into every aspect of our business. In other words, we're all awesome together! Join the awesomeness at www.threadless.com.
