The manufacturer recommends the following to keep your new t-shirt design from fading:
Follow these guidelines as you handle and store printed T-shirts:
Avoid storing T-shirts in direct sunlight, or in locations that are subject to excessive dust, heat, or humidity. If T-shirts are stored in a hot place after printing, the printed surface may soften and become sticky.
Do not dry clean printed T-shirts.
Turn printed T-shirts inside out before washing and let them dry inside out.
To maintain the best quality, printed T-shirts should be air dried. Tumble dryers may reduce image quality over time. •
Do not use bleach. It may cause discoloration.
Do not iron directly onto the printed surface.
Do not use organic solvents, such as alcohol.
Do not rub the printed surface against vinyl or chloride-based artificial leather. The colors may transfer to the leather.
Do not rub surfaces printed with color ink against surfaces printed with White ink; the color may transfer. If this happens, use a soft cloth or brush with a small amount of household detergent to wipe away the transferred color
If you have applied pre-treatment solution and fixed the ink, we recommend soaking the T-shirt in water and washing it before wearing it to remove any remaining traces of pre-treatment solution.
If pre-treatment solution is applied to a white or light-colored T-shirt, the treated side may turn yellow. Print soon after applying the pre-treatment solution and wash in water. Avoid direct sunlight if you store the T-shirt without printing.
For light-colored T-shirts, let the pre-treatment solution air dry before heat-pressing; otherwise, staining may occur.
