Why does my garment have a smell?
Sometimes, there might be a vinegar-like smell or an off-white residue on certain garments. Do not worry, this is normal. The printing method used applies a fixation agent during the printing process. It is NOT permanent.
The solution is simply to wash the garment, as you should with any new clothing bought anywhere. Important to refer to the wash and care instructions below.
How do I wash my garments?
- Printed garments can be machine-washed cold, inside-out on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent and like colours. Use non-chlorine bleach only when necessary. You should not use any fabric softeners, or dry-clean the items.
Tumble dry on a low cycle, but hanging to dry works best. When it comes to ironing, use cool iron inside-out. Do NOT iron the print.
NOTE: High-temperature washes can fade and crack the print. And high-temperature dryer settings can shrink the garment, as well as damage the print.
- Slight shedding of inner fleece may occur after first wash with the hoodie and crewneck sweaters.
- Keep in mind that the original manufacturer's care instructions don't take into consideration the print work, just the garment itself.
How do I wash my tote bags?
Tote bags can be machine-washed without bleach on cold cycle. After washing, they can be tumble-dried on low heat. They can't be ironed, or dry-cleaned.
What is the difference between production time and shipping time?
- Production is the time it takes to print your product. We do not keep inventory so every item is made-to-order once the order has been placed. This takes up to 7-14 business days.
Production is independent of shipping time. Shipping time is the amount of time the courier, Canada Post, takes to deliver your order.
