It is highly recommended that all hand-crafted clothing items are washed separately in cold water on their first wash. Although they are thoroughly laundered at least once during the process, it is best to wash separately on first wash, just in case. Color transfer is not likely, but still possible.
After that always wash in cold water and hang dry for maximum longevity of your items and designs!
We do not recommend drying any item with a screen-print or HTV (Heat Transfer Vinyl) design, or that was created with acid wash or bleach of any kind. Drying your items could risk cracking, peeling or destruction of your items!
**All of our items are dried at least once during the creation process. So, if you are someone who never dries their items for fit, it is suggested you order one size up! The higher the cotton count, the more likely it is that shrinkage has occurred. **
Any stiffness left in painted shirts will relax upon laundering.
It is recommended that you do not: use fabric softeners or dry clean when laundering your items, and iron on medium to low, and on reverse side only.
***SUBLIMATION DESIGNS SHOULD BE EXPECTED TO FADE WITH WASHING! Some may not fade right away, but if they do, please understand that this is normal for this process on any blend shirt other than 100% polyester. Shirts should be washed separate on first wash. Following proper care instructions will help maintain longevity of your designs! ** Shirts with higher polyester counts are less likely to fade.
**Tie Dye/Painted Designs - Although they are thoroughly laundered at least once during the process, it is best to wash separately on first wash, just in case. Color transfer is not likely, but still possible. Shout brand "color catchers" are also a good recommendation to prevent color transfer to white parts or other articles of clothing.
**HTV designs should not be dried.
**Screen-prints may be tumble dried on low, inside out. To reduce the risk of cracking or peeling, and increasing the longevity of your design, we highly recommend hang drying. If you choose to dry your garments, you do so at your own risk.
