    It used to be better art, but a lot of good artists stopped adding new stuff... The site needs quality artist to come back!

    Didn't an artist have to be approved first to open a store?

    I think DBH has always struggled to find its exact identity, and that problem still persists today. It seems to be a really wide spread mix of some really great heavily design focused stuff, some rather cheesy designed stuff that I'm sure sells decent but isn't well executed, and the more recent development of a ton of gamer related stuff with quality levels from terrible to pretty good.

    Artists are supposed to be approved when opening a store, then a design has to be approved, but it seems no one approves anymore or someone thought this was okay to approve.

    I think every since they had new owners and went the POD route they are struggling. I see them as the heavily designed graphic tees and now the ever so popular run of the mill parody geek t-shirt designs. The t-shirts are good(I think Next Level) and the prints are pretty good, but it doesn't seem that the very artistic are as high in demand as it was a few years ago. I always liked that they were more about the artistic style, but that parody stuff sells online.

    Artists need to be approved first yes, but the bar isn't set too high... Designs too but unless it's something very offensive or a clear copyright infrigement it will be approved. I've had a design rejected so obviously someone takes a look at what's being posted. Believe me I've seen worse than the ones Dobi posted.

    I don't think the site is struggling. Some people sell a lot there and not necesarily doing parody stuff. Artistic stuff is still the best selling. I get a decent amount of sales every month, way better than any other pod sites I've tried. The blanks they use are really good, I think it's their own custom-made.

    At the end of the day, bad art isn't going to sell. And people will either get better or quit. Best selling stuff is usually put in front for more visibility and the bad stuff sinks in the deeps of the site quick.

    DBH has changed it's model significantly from shirt a day contest to POD. They have good blanks and the best DTG printing I have seen.

    The artists stores do go through an approval process but I can't talk to that because I left there about 8months ago and am not sure what they do regarding that now.
