NOTE ON THE PRINTING OF NEONS:
The neon optical and pigment dyes in these shirts are reactive to heat. The recommended maximum fabric temperature is 320 degrees. Printers are advised to use temperature strips to measure the temperature of the fabric as it passes through the dryer or heat source.
Dryer temperature should be adjusted to keep the fabric below 320 degrees. When placing garments on the belt, lay them as flat as possible to avoid high spots that may touch the inside of the dryer or come closer to heat elements.
It is recommended to test (and launder) a shirt before a full production run. This information is provided only as a guide; individual results may vary.
PIGMENT DYE REFERS TO WASHED DOWN COLORS THAT CONTINUE TO SOFTEN AND AGE WITH WASHING. PIGMENTS ARE INSOLUBLE COLOR PARTICLES ATTACHED TO THE SURFACE OF CLOTH USING A BINDING AGENT. SLIGHT SHADE VARIATIONS ARE INHERENT IN THE PIGMENT DYE PROCESS.
DUE TO THE NATURE OF THE GARMENT DYING PROCESS, PIGMENT DYED GOODS SHOULD ALWAYS BE WASHED SEPARATELY BEFORE WEARING TO AVOID BLEEDING ISSUES.
