    the black axe dudes run bandjob.com but it seems to have quite a bit slower traffic than here. Good site though, especially if you just browse the projects. It's good inspiration.

    Why you need Mintees when you have Mintees?

    Ya I think that's the biggest problem here. Emptees era still the best, hope Mintees can reach it too someday. :')

    This site needs more active "Community selected" tees admin...

    This is the queue at the moment:


    It's rarely ever backed up more than two rows. I vote at least once a day, if possible. It used to take four votes up or down to push a submission, but now it's only two. That said, more voters aren't the solution.

    Mintees was already losing active users to Instagram, Facebook groups, etc. The server crash a few months ago put the final nail in the coffin, in my opinion. Every year, despite the dwindling community, Drawlloween would bring people back in for a month at least. However, this year, even that couldn't do it. Sucks, but that's the reality.

    There's nowhere like Mintees, save for a couple niche Facebook groups, but those tend to just be circle jerks for a few artists.

    This site needs a complete overhaul, but owners don't care...

    Some friends suggest to make a donate here. Personally I agree with that, maybe it can help this site more better. I mean about the system, UI, etc. Actually until now, Mintees still give me opportunity to find a good client, so I just don't want this site really die.

    It's because all of the designers/illustrators who kept these sites going and active have moved on, and looks like the new wave isn't as social or as tightly-knit. Was different then, than it is now.
  • Fevara

    maybe we can start a more interesting thread to bait more users to get back active again in mintees....like sketches and illustration thread,etc...
    who knows?
  • Drew44

    I need some designs guys! hit me up

    Pretty sure Instagram and perhaps dribbble. Here an artists gets 1-5 likes. On IG an artist post gets 100s or 1000s likes, comments and gets exposed to a lot of other people through the "you might like" section.

    but where are the people with small clothing brands, unsigned bands, etc... searching for designs now? Ok, mintees is not so active as it was, but all those "design buyers" have to be somewhere...

    Are you on IG? I own a small brand and now I find artists through IG. I rarely buy pre-made designs anymore but I see artists selling theirs all the time.

    I dunno, maybe there's another site that I haven't heard about but that's my experience.

    I'm looking to hire a graphic designer for my motorsports brand. Allover prints and sublimation projets. Hoodies, tshirts, tanktops, leggings, caps, windbreakers, motocross jerseys, etc.
    Long terms opportunity!
  • Endgame Clothing

    @RudeGang Your best bet is to browse designs and then contact artists that you feel would be a good fit for you and your brand. Site looks great. Good luck and don't forget your helmet, son!
  • bulbasaur11

    If you know some similar sites, do let me know as I am creating a list.
  • Fevara

    This site is dying...I think the site owner should remove a "community selected" tees section that based on a certain amount of vote to get designer's tees on a front page...change the rules by "Flag" the tees that doesn't fit the mintees tees criteria.
    Some new artists will be happy if they saw their design at a front page,to attract more users..both artists and buyers.
    Maybe...?who knows

    People tried go media forums, and storenvy some moved to design by humans and threadless but I think it's all dead now We really tried to keep it going, but it was a house of cards. I think Johnny Cupcakes, Fullbleed, Miles to go, and 8 bit zombie are still going. I moved to twitch. It would be cool if someone could build a tee off website I always liked that community contest.

    Facebook groups are the thing now, but they're all half egos and half ultra-noobs with a few decent folks sprinkled in... So a lot like the old Emptees/Mintees actually. It's unfortunate what happened to the site, but the big guns grew out of their need to post and everyone else moved on to Instagram. I don't know if there'll ever be another site like Mintees.

    Probably not. The internet isn't the same thing as it was 10 years ago, for better or worse. I could see a curated Slack group doing well, but you'd have to very actively manage it.
