DBH Discharge – Hands On Review

by Matt on May 7, 2013

Post image for 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.

Post image for Miles to Go releases new version of 1984

Originally released as a full color print on black and limited edition heather grey tri-blend, 1984 is back on black, this time it’s a 50/50 American Apparel tee printed with discharge ink. As you’ve probably read, I love American Apparel tri-blends, but the 50/50 tees are also wonderfully soft and comfortable. Pick this up while it lasts…there’s a only a few left in each size!

Boy did they know how to make movies back then.

It’s exceptionally rare that I’ll post about a tee being reprinted, especially a Threadless one, but it’s almost universally accepted that this design is 110% badass, so I just had to mention it. Oh, and why’s it printed on American Apparel, I thought Threadless only used their own shirts now?

An Eye Full by Brandon Dunlap for Resist Today

by Andy on February 16, 2009


I haven’t seen something new from Brandon Dunlap (warning: his portfolio is awesome) for ages, I’m sure he never stopped putting pen to paper (or e-pen to e-paper), but it’s good to see a new tee by him, especially as it is being sold by perennial HYA favourites Resist Today.

Stupid Devil have pretty smart designs

by Andy on August 7, 2008

I don’t think I’ve featured a Norwegian brand before, so this is a first for me, but its certainly not a first for Norwegians to be associated with the devil, although its fair to say that Stupid Devil‘s designs don’t have that classic “hey, we’re Satanists” kind of look about them.

All the tees are printed on American Apparel blanks, and they use discharge and blended inks on a few designs, so you know that these tees are going to be super soft. They also sell a few art prints that I’m sure would look pretty decent on my walls.
