DBH History - The Beginning

posted by Rkdoo • 4 years ago

Well, DBH just turned 3 and is a huge accomplishment. It has grown to be not just a t shirt store, but an opportunity for experienced and up and coming artists to share their work. Personally, i`ve known this site for like a year and a half but when i discovered it, for me, it was just a nice online shop with very nice designs. Only after a while, when i first discovered the voting pages, the forum, the community i decided to become a member and share my work.

To get to the reason of this post, i always wondered what was DBH like when they first “opened”. I mean, now they give 750$ every single day to a new artist, i don`t think they did that from the first day. Were there voting pages from the beginning or did they start like just an online shop with printed designs made by the “founders” of the site? I study bussiness in college and i`m really curious on how did DBH start their bussiness and how did they grow.

What was the first tshirt printed by DBH? I was always curious about that…and wished there was an archive of shirts for this place :)

As you can see from Oddeti’s post Rkdoo, DBH has pretty much always had the same basic business model.Gotta give props to them for starting this and sustaining this and becoming one of the major t-shirt contest sites out there. A lot of other sites have come and gone in the blink of an eye. So these dudes are obviously pretty smart and work hard.

And that kind of ass kissery why I have a staff banner, haha. But honestly, mad respect for them.

I clicked on the shirt above to check out its catalog page, and the third comment it has, by one ImpossibleJosh, made me laugh out loud.

That’s not all that unusual.

Well, mad respect for DBH for what they did. Starting strong with a 5000$ contest…that`s something. Props to their trust in designers to make artwork for them and themselves at the same time

It isn’t?

Slight correction, Jestik- the Robot design was the first contest winner, but not the first print on the site. Prior to announcing contest winners, the catalog included the shirts in Oddetti’s link (which were not voted on).

My first buy was Black Market :)
