I think I’ve made a few comments before about foil being awesome, which makes me all the more happy to announce that Design by Humans will be releasing two foil using shirts in the next two days (well, today and tomorrow technically). According to the newsletter it’s been several months since they’ve used foil, but I can’t say I ever remember seeing them use it, so I was pretty psyched by the email. I like both the shirts, but Chaos Theory by Mathiole is my definite favorite. The blue foil just looks totally rad. Check em out!
Through running troundup, I’ve managed to accumulate a large chunk of DBH Dollars. Given that I’m about to head off to college and Lollapalooza (and I just came back from Europe), I could use a little spending cash, so giving them away completely gratis is out of the option. But, I think I have a way where we can both come out ahead. If you’re thinking of buying some Design by Humans shirts, just shoot me an email–I’ll buy the shirts for you, and you just pay me 75% of the retail price (25% off!) + the cost of shipping. Buy 5+ shirts and I’ll pay for your shipping, assuming you’re in the US.
Also, this has come up a few times in the past, but I can’t use coupons when I buy with DBH dollars, so you can’t get the additional 10% or whatever from coupons. Sorry, I wish it were otherwise, because then things would rock even more.
If you’re interested just go to my contact me page, where you can find a contact form as well as my email if you want to just email me directly. You can also just leave a comment on this page.
So again, you pay me for the shirts, less the 25% discount. I then use my accumulation of DBH dollars to place the order at Design by Humans and have it shipped directly to you.
I love the idea behind this shirt–it’s awesome and creative. I also love this shirt, with just one thing I’m not entirely happy about. I think the front is really well done–the childlike style is spot on. I just think the back is somewhat lacking. I feel like it could have been done better than what simply looks like a stock picture. That’s not a huge gripe though, because I’m still a fan of the shirt either way. It just could’ve been even better if the back had been done a little differently in my opinion. Hopefully that didn’t sound too rambally.
If you didn’t notice from the last post, I like bright colors. I’m diggin this design from Teextile. Get free shipping by clicking here.
Lastly, Threadless released five shirts in honor of April Fool’s day. I find myself oddly attracted to this design, although all the releases are quality pieces.
So there you have it. I love the endless release of quality designs these contests provide.
Design by Humans is holding a design contest for the band Kings of Leon, who I really like (check out the song, Sex on Fire). I’ve been browsing through the entries, and I’ve picked out my favorites. Everyone should go check them out, and hopefully vote for them, because I want them to get printed so I can buy them. So here they are, ranked somewhat in order–the top two are my definite favorites, but I can’t pick between them.
Anyone have any other entries they like? Other comments? Let me know.
Design by Humans has reinstated their old feature where every order placed gives the buyer a 2 week long 10% off coupon. I just placed an order, so now I’m happy to offer you the 10% off coupon I got. Use code UGRJL1 for 10% off until March 16th. Also, you should use the code to buy the shirt above–I did, because it’s awesome.
I never had any problems with Design by Humans‘ site before, but I will say that I like the changes they’ve made. They’ve pretty much redone everything, and I’ve yet to find a change that I don’t like. I’d say my favorite upgrade is to their product photos. With the new design, they’ve got much better product shots, with much better angles, so you can really get a feel for how the shirt will look on an actual person. Kudos to Design by Humans.
Also, I’ve still got that whole Design by Humans coupon thing running if anyone wants to save money, I try to keep it updated whenever I find a working code.
I don’t know if any of you noticed, but Design by Humans has just started printing on a new type of blank, dubbed their “Perfect Tee”. Given my somewhat obsession with comfortable shirts (it’s gotten to the point where I won’t buy a shirt if it’s on something I think is uncomfortable, even if I like the design. But I swear I’m not a snob, I just have a lot of shirts), I wanted to check out what the quality of the shirts was. I ordered two designs, pictured above, and just received them and was able to check out the new shirts.
So what do I think? I think they’re awesome. They’re incredibly soft and fit much better than the previous shirts in my opinion. The sizing is more slim fitting–I wore a small in their old shirts, but now I think I’m bumped up to a medium, although I did just order a small in the new shirt to make sure. They’re also a bit thinner than the old shirts, which I think is a good thing, and a helluva lot softer. Overall, definitely a big step up for Design by Humans, I hope they keep them. Before ordering though, you might want to double check the size charts and see if you should move a size up, because they definitely are slimmer.
Anyone else who’s gotten them want to weigh in?
PS. I try to keep up on any DBH coupons here, although I haven’t found any working ones out there right now.
