How To Care For Your Graphic

How To Care For Your Graphic

I know there are a few people out there who don't consider vinyl graphics to be of great quality. I totally get it! I'm here to tell you, if you buy from someone who uses a professional heat press (like us!) and take care of the garment (super easy, we promise) then your tee will last as long as it fits!

Most importantly, limit the amount of times you dry your tee in the dryer. We know it's annoying to sort through your washer and pick out things to hang up. That's why we say "limit" and not "don't do it." This also keeps your tee from shrinking too much. All tees will shrink from repeated washing and drying, even those nifty styles that say "pre-shrunk."

Now comes the super secret trick to those vinyl tees... pressing the graphic. You don't have to do this, obviously, but if you're like me then you may be a little OCD about your vinyl graphic having a crease in it. All you have to do is this:

1. Get out your handy dandy iron and set it to the cotton blend setting.
2. Lay your shirt flat on top of a folded towel or pillow case.
3. Sit the iron on top of the graphic and let it press for about 5-7 seconds.
4. Lift the iron straight up and voila, freshly pressed graphic.

DO NOT MOVE THE IRON AROUND WHEN IT IS ON YOUR GRAPHIC. You should only be pressing the iron down and then lifting it back up. Any other movements could ruin the graphic. (Legal disclaimer: We love you, but we can't replace your tee if you mess it up with an iron.)

If you're correctly caring for your tee and you have any cracking or peeling within the first 30 days of purchase, let us know with an e-mail! We don't want your kiddos rocking bad quality threads, so we can send you a replacement if there is a quality issue.
