Care Instructions - Screen Printed Garments August 12 2016

Home Laundry Care:

Screen printed t-shirts have a print that can last for years, since the ink becomes a part of the garment, not just imprinted on them. However, it is recommended that you treat your screen printed garments with care to ensure the print quality.

  • Always wash your garments inside-out with a mild detergent.
  • For the first 2 washes, wash by hand in cold water
  • Use low temperature wash cycle program only (we recommend 90 degrees Fahrenheit maximum)
  • If possible, avoid drying your screen printed t-shirts in a dryer, as this type of drying can damage the screen printing.  Instead, air dry the shirts to retain the imprinting.
  • Iron your screen printed garments inside-out.  This helps maintain the structural integrity of the imprint.

When washing light colored garments, the imprint may fade a little. When washing garments on high temperature (and yes, 105 degrees Fahrenheit is too hot), the possibility of imprint/garment fading increases.

Ironing Your Screen Printed Garments:

  • Iron your screen printed garments inside-out.  This helps maintain the structural integrity of the imprint.
  • To help extend the life of the garment, try ironing your garment between two pieces of cloth.

It is not recommended to apply moisture or steam to your screen printed garment prior to ironing.

Dry Cleaning:

Screen printed garments may be dry cleaned, however, please excercise extreme caution when dry cleaning.  Special care must be taken when dark shades are dry cleaned and avoid using pre-spotting agents.
