Product Care

Ezra's Clothing partners with suppliers and production partners to create custom printed and embroidered items and design color options at great prices. Keep in mind that the original manufacturer's care instructions found on the printed item's tags do not take into consideration the printing or embroidery process.

We caution against washing and drying printed and embroidery items on a high setting, especially when the garment is 100% cotton. High-temperature washes sometimes fade and crack the print, and a high-temperature dryer settings can shrink the garment, as well as compromise the print. 

Because we want to prolong the life of your custom print, we recommend the following  care instructions:

Machine wash cold, inside-out, gentle cycle with mild detergent and similar colors. Use non-chlorine bleach, only when necessary. No fabric softeners. Tumble dry low, or hang-dry for longest life. Cool iron inside-out if necessary. Do not iron the print or embroidery area. Do not dry clean.

 

 

Disclaimer about printed garments

When unpacking a new printed clothing item you might notice a vinegar-like smell or an off-white residue. Don't worry, that's not unusual - it's from a fixation agent applied during the printing process and it's not permanent.

Fixation agent (sometimes known as pre-treatment) is often used for prints across the industry. It helps the ink bond with the fabric, and without it, the ink would flake off the garment.

The solution is simply to wash the garment! Neither the residue nor the smell is permanent and both should go away after one wash.
