Are you notified only after 90 days?

posted by colinlepper • 5 years ago

Hello everyone,
Though I wouldn’t really call myself “new” here, I haven’t spent much time here until recently, so I’m still learning the ins and outs of DBH and I was just wondering if designs go through a full 90 days before being selected for prints, and if not, how far in to voting (approximately of course) do most people get notified that their design was selected to print?

I bet the answer is out there somewhere but I’ve spent about 40 minutes or so looking around and didn’t find much of an answer.

Thanks a lot to any and all answer-ers!!

There is no specific time. It depends on the staff, but most of the time (based on my knowledge) you will be notified within the 90days. But there have been cases where the design was picked for printing after the voting period got over.

Addu is correct. We select most design from within the 90day period but we do occasionally pick a design that has been finished voting for many months. The 9 month period is there to temporarily hold the rights to a design so that we can be sure it isn’t printed elsewhere and then once that 90 days is up your free to use it again, the rights return to the artist.

Ah I see, thanks you two. I guess I was wondering if it was like, usually after a month of voting you’ll start being considered/looked at, but I suppose it’s not really like that.

Designs are looked at constantly, in terms of picking winners.
