Care instructions

You've spent a lot of time and effort to create the perfect design for your products - it's important that you and your customers know how to take care of them in the best way possible!

Printed apparel (direct-to-garment)

Printed apparel can be machine-washed cold, inside-out on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent and like colors. Use non-chlorine bleach only when necessary. You shouldn't use any fabric softeners, or dry-clean the items.

DTG-printed apparel can be tumble-dried on a low cycle, but hang dry works best.

When it comes to ironing, use cool iron inside-out. Do not iron the print.

Embroidered apparel

Embroidered shirts also can be machine-washed cold and inside-out on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent and similar colors. You can use a small amount of chlorine bleach, but non-chlorine is the safer option. If you notice any color residue in water, rinse the garment in lukewarm water and then in cold several times, but try not to rub any stained embroidery. Embroidered clothing can also be dry-cleaned.

After washing, don't leave the clothing soaking, or lying in a pile while wet. Do not wring out the embroidered articles, but if you want to tumble-dry them, use a cool air setting.

If the garment needs ironing, do it inside-out, preferably between two pieces of cloth. You shouldn't wet embroidery before ironing or use a steam iron.

All-over printed apparel

All-over printed apparel can be machine-washed cold with like colors, but without bleach. You can tumble-dry the apparel on low heat. It can't be ironed or dry-cleaned.

All-over printed sweatshirts

The all-over printed sweatshirts have a slightly different fabric. So while they can be machine-washed cold with like colors without bleach and ironed on low heat, they can't be tumble-dried or dry-cleaned.

Sublimation apparel and towels

Sublimation apparel and towels can be washed at any temperature, but we suggest cold/warm water. We also recommend washing the items with like colors, as the polyester fabric tends to make colors run.

Bags

Our all-over print backpacks need to be hand-washed, but after the wash they can be tumble-dried on low heat. The backpacks can't be bleached, ironed, or dry-cleaned.

All-over print beach, tote and drawstring bags can be machine-washed without bleach on cold cycle. After washing, they can be tumble-dried on low heat. They can't be ironed, or dry-cleaned.

Pillows

The pillowcase itself can be machine-washed without bleach on cold cycle, and they can be tumble-dried on low heat. They can't be ironed, or dry-cleaned. The pillow insert should only be hand washed.

Mugs

Our white mugs are microwave and dishwasher safe. Matte black magic mugs, however, should only be hand-washed, and you can't put them in a microwave. Note that they're also prone to scratches, so be extra careful.

Posters and Canvas

To ensure that your posters and canvas last for a long time, don’t keep them in direct sunlight or outdoors. They can be gently dusted with a soft, dry cloth or a feather duster.

Phone Cases

Remove your case from your phone. Add a little mild soap to water, and dampen a cloth or sponge with it. With the damp cloth, rub your case gently in circles. Let your case air dry at room temperature.
