DBH Discharge – Hands On Review

I recently received a couple tees from Design By Humans, specifically two that they used discharge inks for. If you’re not familiar, discharge is a special type of ink/screen printing process that basically dyes the fabric of the shirt, instead of laying ink on top of it, so it leaves almost no feel on the print.

Craig Watkins (you probably know him as Wotto), the Art Director over at DBH, sent me two of their discharge tees. “Lost” by carbine and a DBH logo shirt that they’ve been giving out for free at different events around the country. Lost depicts a skeleton astronaut being attacked by some sort of multi-legged space creature, all done in neon inks. Neon discharge inks! This design recently took 3rd place in the Bright Futures Neon Tee contest and just a few days ago was named as one of DBH’s “Top 5 Best Illustrative Tees”.

Ok…so on to the print. The beauty of discharge is that the print has virtually no feel at all. It’s as if you’re just wearing a blank shirt, but you get the awesome bonus of having an incredible design printed on it. And not only is this one super soft and bright, cause of the neon discharge inks, but super big as well. As you can see, it pretty much takes up the entire front of the t-shirt.

Not surprisingly, Design By Hümans has impressed me yet again. They’re always taking that next step and improving their game, putting out the biggest, brightest, softest, and best prints around. Every time I receive one of their shirts in the mail, it looks even better than it does on the website. Do yourself a favor and check them out if you haven’t yet.
