You've bought your t-shirt, LOVE IT, worn it, worn it again, and now it is laundry time. What's next? Read more to learn how to best care for your printed garment created with DTG technology. Follow the advice to give your item the longest life possible!
Ezra's Clothing partners with suppliers who use the amazing direct-to-garment (DTG) printing technology to create custom printed garments and design color options at great prices. The DTG ink used is not the same as the ink screen printers use. Keep in mind that the original manufacturer's care instructions found on the printed item's tags do not take into consideration the DTG printing process.
We caution against washing and drying 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 decoration. Do not dry clean.
