#DO52 WEEK 33: MAKIN’ MONEY!

#DO52week33: Immortalize your hero on a new piece of currency.
- In celebration of our new $20K Funding design challenge, we thought it would be fun to dream up a new bill or coin to add to the mix of our current currency collection. Who is someone you admire or respect so much that you think they should be honored on some coinage? Put Salvador Dali on a $3 bill, slap Steve Urkel on a 30 cent coin, or emblazon a credit card with Riff Raff’s mug. Give your idol the tribute they deserve!
Here are some examples from around the web to get you started:

HEY! WHATCHA DOIN’ AFTER SCHOOL?
The Threadless Back to School Sale is winding down (today’s the last day to save 40-80% on everything at Threadless), and we’re about to tear up the halls after the last bell rings! Class is cool and all, but it’s those extracurriculars that we really live for. Tossing the pigskin around at football practice, memorizing lines with pals in theater, spinning like a top on the dance team - these after school activities are the basis for so many of our favorite school memories. Below, we’ve highlighted some of the perfect Threadless tees to sport at your extracurricular of choice, so check ‘em out and we’ll see you after class!
How many times will Kevin almost fall off the catwalk before it stops being funny?
The games were fun and practice was cool, but those shower pranks were my favorite part…
If it wasn’t for German Club, I’d never be able to curse my parents out in a language they don’t understand!

Remember when Mr. Jones ditched us at the nature preserve and came back smelling like a skunk? Poor guy…
Seeing 30 people in nearly Adonis-like shape every morning and night for 4 years really set me up for a life’s worth of disappointment. But hey, it was fun while it lasted!
That time we secretly loaded up all of the freshmen’s trumpets with flour during their first concert.
Kathy stole Jeff right out from under me. Remember that horrible photo of her from prom? Turn to page four…
TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL? TRY THESE TEES ON FOR SIZE!
No hats, no gum chewing, no running in the halls, no cell phones - sometimes, it feels like school is tryin’ to tread on your life, ya know? But school isn’t going to cramp your style is it, you rebel, you. We know that everyone needs to cut loose every now and then and free themselves from the rules of academic convention, which is why we put together a list of some not-so-safe-for-school tees that will give you back the autonomy you deserve!
Check out the designs below, and don’t forget that everything on Threadless is 40-80% off during our Back to School Sale!

I’m sorry, I didn’t realize you had a problem with my enthusiasm for chemistry, Mr. Science Teacher…
Oh, pardon me for having political opinions. I didn’t realize you were running a dictatorship over here. My bad.
DISCOVER YOUR BACK TO SCHOOL LOOK!
As the thought of returning to school slowly forces its way back into your brain, so many questions start bouncin’ around in the ol’ noggin. Who am I going to be this year? What classes will I take? Does the locker room still smell as horrible as I remember? Does my style need an upgrade? Though we can’t speak to your class schedule or that funky smell creeping from the locker room, we can give you a hand in crafting your perfect look for struttin’ down the halls!
Below, we’ve outlined some of the best tees to suit your style, whether that be mathlete chic, science club style, or gym class couture. Check out the designs below, and remember that all tees are 40% off and everything else is on sale, too!
