All of DBH's t-shirts are printed using state-of-the-art screen-printing processes and other apparel embellishment techniques, including soft-hand inks, water-based inks, specialty inks, foils, and flocks. DBH is an environmentally friendly company and all of the inks DBH uses are phalite-free.
All of DBH's t-shirts are either 100% combed ring spun cotton or a 50/50 cotton-poly blend. The description on the detail page of each t-shirt in DBH's store will indicate which type of t-shirt that particular design is printed on.
Our t-shirts tend to fit in between a basic and a slim fit t-shirt. The measurements given in our size charts have a variance of +/- one inch.
Generally, cotton shrinks when it is washed and/or dried. If you purchase a 100% cotton t-shirt, there will be more shrinkage when it is washed, than with the 50/50 cotton-poly blend t-shirt. With either type of t-shirt, the least amount of shrinkage will be incurred if the t-shirt is washed in cold water and hung dry. The greatest amount of shrinkage occurs when the t-shirt is washed in hot water and dried on the hottest dryer setting. Typically, our 100% cotton t-shirts shrink approximately 3-5 percent in both the length and width after being washed. Our 50/50 cotton-poly blend t-shirts shrink approximately 1-2 percent in both the length and width after being washed.
If the ink is inconsistently printed on the seams or collar of the t-shirt, this is due to the nature of the design and print technique. THIS IS NOT A DEFECT. However, please do not hesitate to send an email to Customer Service with pictures of your product's areas in question for further assistance.
DBH will reprint selected designs at its discretion. If you see a t-shirt you must have and it is currently in stock, DBH suggests purchasing the t-shirt before it sells out. To keep up with reprints, subscribe to our weekly newsletters for any updates or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Please click here to learn how our ongoing contest works.
All submissions must first go through an internal screening process before being either accepted into our vote section, or rejected. This initial screening usually takes 24-72 hours (excluding weekends and holidays). Once your submission is either accepted or rejected, you will receive an email notification. For further assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are many different programs that will work to accomplish this task. We like to use the Adobe Creative Suite, but it is really up the artist. Please also review our 101 sections for helpful tips and tricks.
DBH pays winning artists through PayPal. The cash prize will be transferred to the artist within five (5) business days from the day their winning design is announced on our site. For further assistance, please email email@example.com.
The daily contest winners are chosen on several factors including votes, comments, print-ability and staff input. The number of votes, which are cumulative, on a submission can differ greatly and the staff uses the votes as a rough guide at their discretion. Thus it is not a sole deciding factor to whether or not a design gets printed. DBH also needs to take into consideration fraudulent votes that also alter the number. All designs are up on the site for voting for 90 days. Once the 90-day voting period has expired, the designs are removed from the voting pool and remain in the artist's gallery.
DBH RESERVES THE RIGHT TO MAKE THE FINAL DECISION ON WINNING DESIGNS.
By submitting your design to DBH, you may not reproduce, sell, or submit the design to others for any commercial purpose for 90 days after the date of submission while DesignByHumans.com is considering the design. Once the 90 days have passed, if DesignByHumans.com does not choose your design for print, you are free to use the design for any commercial or non-commercial purpose. In addition, if the design is used or reproduced for commercial purposes elsewhere, you cannot use the DBH blogs to promote the design or the company featuring the design. DBH reserves the right to choose your design after the 90 days have passed, on the condition that the design has not been used for commercial purposes on any items. If your design is selected, you may not use the design (or derivatives of the design) or allow others to use the design (or derivatives of the design) on any items. DBH will own complete rights to the design once you submit the high-res artwork and agree to the Terms and Conditions.
When you submit your artwork you acknowledge that the design you are assigning to DBH is your own original work, has not been previously published, and does not contain any trademarks, logos, copyrighted material, or any other intellectual property belonging to any third party, or any material, which DBH in its sole discretion, deems to be profane or offensive.
Please email the Art Department for further assistance.
Please email the Art Department with a link to the design to be removed.
Once a design is up for voting and selected for print, the artist relinquishes all rights to the artwork to DBH as described in the Artist Agreement Contract. Please review our Terms and Conditions or email the Art Department for further assistance.
For items that are currently on backorder please allow an additional 3-5 weeks to process.
Design By Humans does its best to accurately estimate the demand for a product. When a product sells out quickly, we will often put an item into a backorder status. Backorders will ship out as soon as we get the product back from our printers.
If you have placed an order with multiple items and one is a backordered item, your backordered item will be shipped separately in a new package.
In order to save you shipping costs, your entire order will be placed on hold until we receive the backorder item in our warehouse. Once we receive the backordered item from our printer, your entire order will be shipped.
DBH takes website security issues very seriously and uses the latest industry-standard SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption to protect your personal information. Note the small pad-lock icon in the locked position that will appear in the lower-right corner or upper-right corner of your browser during each of the pages of the checkout process.
DBH is not currently set up to process orders directly at our warehouse.
