Threadless's new version of Kickstarter

Some of today's new t-shirts at Threadless, which announced the debut of their own version of Kickstarter:

starting today, we'll print 4 more new designs every single week (in addition to our 10 new ones), so we'll be selling 14 designs a week. Each of these 4 shirts will get a week trial. They'll be on preorder and if they sell well, we'll rush them to our printer and screenprint a large batch. The artist will receive the full Threadless payment as if it was a normal print. If they don't sell well, we'll give the artist 10% of what we sell for that week total, and the rights to the design back to them. This format will allow us to take mega risks on what designs we decide to print. So we'll be able to print crazier stuff, hopefully!
