Screen Printed T-shirts Care from Same Day Custom

At Same Day Custom, we understand the importance of maintaining the vibrancy and longevity of your screen printed T-shirts. Whether it’s your favorite graphic tee or promotional apparel for your business, proper care ensures that your prints remain crisp and vibrant wash after wash. Here’s our comprehensive guide on how to wash and dry screen-printed T-shirts to keep them looking their best: 

Step 1: Sorting Your Screen Printed Shirts

Before starting the washing process, it’s essential to sort your screen-printed T-shirts according to color. This prevents any potential color bleeding and ensures that your prints stay pristine. Separate light-colored shirts from dark ones to maintain the integrity of the designs on your custom product.

Step 2: Washing Your Custom T-shirt

When it comes to washing screen-printed T-shirts, opt for a gentle cycle with cold water. Using cold water helps preserve the colors and prevents the prints from fading over time. Avoid using harsh detergents or bleach, as these can damage the custom products and compromise the integrity of the prints. Instead, choose a mild detergent specifically formulated for colored clothing.

Step 3: Drying the Custom Printed T-Shirts 

After washing, it’s time to dry your screen-printed T-shirts. Air drying is the gentlest method and is highly recommended to maintain the quality of the prints. Lay your shirts flat on a clean towel or drying rack to allow them to air dry naturally. Avoid wringing out the shirts, as this can distort the prints and cause them to lose their shape.

If you prefer using a dryer, opt for a low heat setting. High heat can cause the prints to crack or peel over time, so it’s best to err on the side of caution. Remove the custom T-shirts from the dryer while they’re still slightly damp to prevent any shrinkage and minimize wrinkles.

Additional Tips for Washing and Drying Your Screen Printed Shirts:

  • Turn your screen-printed T-shirts inside out before washing to protect the prints from friction and abrasion.
  • Avoid ironing directly over the prints, as this can cause them to melt or become distorted. Instead, iron the shirts inside out or place a thin cloth over the prints before ironing.
  • Store your screen-printed T-shirts in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent any fading or discoloration.

By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your screen-printed T-shirts or any other apparel from SameDay Custom retain their vibrant colors and pristine prints for years to come.
