To avoid ink bleeding or ink smearing, please wash the
t-shirt before it is worn.

We've all seen old T-shirts with transfers that are 'feathering' or appear as if
they're deteriorating. That only happens when the transfers aren't cared for
The only way to keep them in good shape is to pay extra
attention to how the items featuring the transfer are washed and dried.

option and cold water.

t-shirt since colors may bleed.
Step 3 - Turn the T-shirt inside out and place it in the
Step 4 - Lay the shirt on a flat surface or hang it up to
dry after washing. Drying the clothing in a dryer is not recommended, because it
could damage the adhesion of the transfer or cause feathering. If you iron the
t-shirt, do not iron directly on the image.
