Interesting sounding Indian startup for T Shirt designs


Got this interesting email from one of the people associated with the startup

We are a group of young Indians who have started http://www.inkfruit.com

It’s
a social site where people upload their designs for t-shirts. There is
an ongoing weekly contest with prize money of Rs 20000. The winners are
selected by popular vote and the winning designs are then screen
printed (not transfer printed) on t-shirts made of high quality fabrics
in all sizes. These are then sold on the site. We also maintain a blog
at http://blog.inkfruit.com/

The site could have a better UI, but it’s overall intuitive and easy to go through. You need to register to either vote or leave a comment. I wonder how they ensure that the designs are original and not ripped off by contributors.

  1. Inkfruit.com is targeted at the Indian market. We do not ship overseas yet (though we do plan to do that eventually). We provide great quality t-shirts with winning designs screen printed (not transfer printed which gives the rubbery feel) on them for very reasonable rates. The designs are made sure to be original. Most contributors are fashion and graphic design students with the number of amateur designers participation increasing by the day.

  2. Interview Request

  3. Maybe this can take off – i hope they don’t simply clone threadless designs. As a Chicagoan (threadless is in Chicago) – I will say the idea is killer – hope they don’t simply steal from the cool business these guys have going!

  4. I second the above opinion

  5. Conceptually it is a bad threadless.com clone…I wonder if people will pay money for t shirt designs or just copy the design ….given our respect for intellectual property, I suspect it will be latter
