Wear & Care

2UP Gear Wear & Care

Let your custom apparel sit without washing for at least 24 hours. If you take that shirt and immediately throw it into the washer and dryer, there’s a good chance the vinyl could peel or crack.

  1. Do NOT dry clean. 

  2. Wash and dry garments inside out. By turning the shirts, pillowcases, etc inside out, you’re giving the vinyl a layer of protection during the wash.

  3. Choose cold or warm water temperature settings for the wash. Do NOT let your water temperature exceed 178 degrees Fahrenheit. High temperatures can weaken the adhesive on the vinyl which can cause the vinyl to peel or crack.

  4. Use mild detergent.  You should also avoid bleach and fabric softeners in order to make your custom apparel last as long as possible.

  5. Dry on a low/tumble setting or hang dry. If you stick with tumble dry or low heat, you should be good to go. If possible, you can hang dry your custom apparel for best results.

  6. Do NOT iron directly on a custom design, ESPECIALLY right after laundering. The high heat on the vinyl will melt the vinyl and or burn the adhesive. If you must iron the shirt, make sure to turn garment inside out, OR use low heat and place a dish towel or cloth over the transfer.
