Dell and Threadless Team Up for Funky Laptops

If you're online at least once a day, chances are you know about Threadless, the t-shirt company that crowd-sources great designs from its users. Today, Threadless announced that it has entered into a deal with Dell that will see the computer maker obtain 11 new designs for Dell Studio laptops and Inspiron Mini netbooks.

Dell has been giving customers the option of placing a laptop cover on the lid of their computer for a while, but until now, users could only choose from the Dell-selected graphics designed by various different artists.

Venture Beat reports that the Dell will be changing up the available Threadless designs a couple of times a year. If your design is chosen, Threadless will pay you a flat licensing fee. Current Threadless designers receive $2,000 in cash, a $500 Threadless gift certificate and an additional $500 in cash each time your design is reprinted.
