washing instructions

When washing a shirt with a custom image on it, it’s important to follow a few guidelines to ensure the longevity of the print and the garment itself. Here are some general washing instructions to keep in mind:

  1. Turn the garment inside out before washing. This will help protect the printed imagery from rubbing against other clothing or surfaces in the wash.
  2. Wash the garment in cold water. Using hot water can cause the fabric and the print to shrink or fade. Using cold water will help preserve the color and size of the garment and the print.
  3. Use a gentle detergent. Avoid using harsh detergents, bleach or fabric softeners. These can damage the fibers of the garment and the print on it.
  4. Wash the garment on a gentle cycle. This will help prevent any unnecessary wear and tear on the fabric and the print.
  5. Avoid drying the garment in direct sunlight. Sunlight can cause the colors to fade over time. Instead, hang or lay the garment flat to dry in a shaded area.
  6. Iron the garment inside out. This will help prevent the print from melting or sticking to the iron. Use a low heat setting and avoid ironing directly over the print.

Following these washing instructions will help ensure that your custom merchandise remains vibrant and intact for as long as possible.
