Printed apparel can be machine-washed cold, inside-out on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent and like colors. Use non-chlorine bleach only when necessary. You shouldn't use any fabric softeners or dry-clean the items.

DTG-printed apparel can be tumble-dried on a low cycle but hang dry works best.

When it comes to ironing, use cool iron inside-out. Do not iron the print.

HTV (Heat Transfer Vinyl)

  • Do not dry clean. HTV should never be dry cleaned. The harsh temperature and chemicals that are used during dry clean just do not mix well with HTV.

  • Wash and dry garments inside out. By turning the shirts, pillowcases, etc inside out, you’re giving the vinyl a layer of protection during the wash. While washing and drying clothes, they’re rubbing up against each other and that abrasion during washing can cause your vinyl to peel prematurely.

  • Use cold temperature settings for the wash. High temperatures can weaken the adhesive on the vinyl which can cause the vinyl to peel or crack.

  • Use mild detergent. Detergents that are “green” can be too harsh for the adhesive on HTV. You should also avoid bleach and fabric softeners in order to make the vinyl last as long as possible.

  • Do not dry your shirts in the dryer.  Hang drying will minimize any wrinkles you see in HTV after washing.

  • Do not iron directly on a heat transfer design.  Please put the shirt inside out and use low heat and place a dish towel or cloth over the transfer when ironing shirts.
