Design By Hümans has just announced their newest project, the DBH Collective. This select group of artists and designers all have their own personal store front at designbyhumans.com that includes never before seen designs on a wide range of colors.

How do they do that you ask? Direct to Garment printing. For those unfamiliar, DTG printing is a more cost effective way to print a one-off shirt. So if the customer wants design X on shirt color Y, DBH will use their DTG printers to do such without the more expensive and longer process of screen printing. DTG printing essentially uses a modified inkjet printer to print the design directly onto a t-shirt. The biggest time saver is that all the colors are printed at once as opposed to separate screens for each color when screen printing.

This is a great opportunity for artists and fans alike, the artists being able to showcase more of their designs (and on different color shirts) and the fans being able to buy them. What’s missing? Those gigantic all over prints that we’ve come to love from DBH. The DTG printing does limit the size and placement of the artwork, so the majority of the designs have a front-center placement with a limited print size. Though, according to some discussion at the DBH Forum, the photos in the Collective stores are only mock ups and the actual prints are much larger. The photos below are of actual prints from DBH Collective designs, not mock ups.

In the coming weeks, I will be receiving and reviewing some shirts from the DBH Collective. I’m very curious to see them, being a huge fan of DBH and their very much above average screen printing abilities.

    Thanks for the review, we will be featuring new t shirt designers in the DBH Collective in the upcoming months. The DBH Collective shirts will be DTG Printed with designs up to 18.5″ tall. While the Shirt of the Day Shirts will still be screen printed and include the all over prints and large prints.
