How to care for your digitally printed t-shirts

When you invest in a unique digitally printed t-shirt, you probably want it to last as long as possible. The trick is to take proper care of it. A little careful maintenance will make your digitally printed t-shirt not only last long but keep it looking as good as new.

But how do you go about caring for your beloved digital print t-shirt? Given below are some simple and handy tips and tricks:

  1. Wash, dry, iron your t-shirt inside out – It will probably be inside out anyway when you take it off after wearing. Leave it that way, not only while washing but when drying and ironing it as well. The reason is any kind of prints, including digital prints, can get discoloured by harsh detergents. Direct sunlight too can have a bleaching effect on the colours, and Ironing on the print can damage it badly. Hence going through the entire process with your digital printed t-shirt turned inside out can help protect the prints.
  2. Wash with similar coloured clothing – Planning to wash a white t-shirt with a red one? It is a disaster waiting to happen. Colours such as red, purple, navy blue, dark green, brown, and black tend to run off during a wash. Thus, it is best to wash such coloured clothing items with similar dark coloured pieces only. Never, I repeat, never wash your light coloured digital printed t-shirt with dark coloured items if you are not looking to getting it uniquely customised for free with patchy multiple colours.
  3. Use cold or lukewarm water – Never use extremely hot water to wash your t-shirts. Cold or lukewarm water would be enough to clean them. Hot water can damage your digital print t-shirts and ruin it completely within a short while.
  4. Do not tumble dry – Regardless of whether your t-shirt is digitally printed or a normal plain t-shirt, tumble drying t-shirts will crinkle your t-shirt and damage it beyond repair. It is best to wash your t-shirt and let it out to air dry at once, meaning do not procrastinate taking your washed and wet t-shirt out of the washer.
  5. Follow washing instructions – Last but not least, remember that different kinds of fabrics require different washing techniques otherwise they can get damaged. Every piece of wearable item you buy, including your digital printed t-shirt, will have a label attached to it that specifies washing instructions. You must follow these directions religiously to keep all your precious clothing items safe and in perfect condition.

    Digital print t-shirts are all the trend now and no wonder, as they look super cool while being extremely comfy as well. Keep flaunting your exclusive printed t-shirt for as long as you can just by following the simple tips mentioned above. Just a little care and caution will go a long way in helping you get your money’s worth, while saving the environment in the process.  And abiding by them will also ensure that your unique digital printed t-shirts stay in perfectly wearable condition for long.
