How to care for your printed garments

How to care for your printed garments

Just like with every fine garment, how you care for your favoured piece of clothing will be reflected in how long a garment lasts for! 

If you're a bit of a custom t-shirt printing regular you'll know all the secret tips on how to care for your t-shirt or garments to ensure they last for aeons to come! But for the rest of us who live normal lives and have no clue that there are other ways to treat your one-off printed t-shirts (other than stuffing all your whites in the one load on washing day) we've put together a little list to help you help your prints stay brighter for longer.

Take a quick scroll through our infographics below, and find out our tips and tricks of how best to care for your custom printed garments:

Although generally screen prints never fade and will outlast the cotton t-shirt they are printed on, it's still super important to treat your prints with care. Without care, your favourite Zeppelin, Mickey Mouse or vintage Yankees hand-me-down you thrifted, or stole from your pop's closet, wouldn't exist in all it's glory today!

If you follow these instructions your silk screen prints should last forever and ever and ever! 

We hope our infographics make your washing day a little less daunting, and potentially save some would-be washout prints from meeting their fate of wearing out or fading too fast!

If you follow all these instructions, however, and still experience peeling or flaking prints make sure you give us or your printer a call to figure out what's gone wrong!
