Follow WASHING INSTRUCTIONS . . .
Always read & follow the garment labels.
To avoid "Fiberlation" in ink prints:
1. Turn all imprinted goods inside out
before putting in the washing machine.
2. Machine wash cold, with like colors.
3. Use only non-chlorine bleach,
and only when really needed.
4. Tumble dry on medium heat.
Hang up collared shirts.
5. Do not iron decorated area. Inks and
threads will melt and ruin your garment.
Why do my imprints fade? The real question is:
What is fibrillation and how can I prevent it?
Answer: Fibrillation is a visual characteristic that appears on a printed garment after several washes. The ink in the print, which has a low abrasion resistance, is "worn off" during the agitation of laundering. This causes random cotton fibers to break loose from the main strand and become exposed at the print surface. These fibers give a "fuzzy" effect. This "fuzzy" effect along with the "worn off" appearance of the ink gives a combined look that is termed "fibrillation".
Is fibrillation new? Absolutely not! It has existed since the beginning
of the imprintables industry, but process changes have made it more common. Technological advances, such as computer-designed graphics, automatic presses, and the advent of process printing, have resulted in bolder, more creative graphics. These changes have resulted in higher mesh count screens, process inks and other variables which would have been unthinkable a few years ago, these all effect and impact fibrillation.

3. Does WIN "sport detergent" clean like a champ? Consumer Reports News: March 13, 2009 05:14 PM
WIN High Performance Sport Detergent is, claims the manufacturer, "scientifically designed to remove embedded
sweat and odors from workout clothes"—specifically on wicking fabrics—using a "Super Oxygenated Formula." If it's strong
enough to handle the loads of U.S. Olympians, as the company indicates, then it should be handle everyday workout gear, right?
As detailed in "Inside Consumer Reports Test Labs: Making Sweaty Clothes for Laundry-Detergent Testing," we got the workout
gear to test this detergent from colleagues. We cleaned the shirts in four loads, using a top-loading washing machine and following the manufacturer's instructions for each:
• Load 1 : Washed with a half cap of WIN.
• Load 2: Washed with a medium dose of Era Max 2X concentrated Oxi Booster.
• Load 3: Clothes were soaked for two hours in a half cap of WIN and 2 gallons of warm water before washing.
• Load 4: Unlaundered control load.
After washing and drying the loads, we placed each in a numbered mesh laundry bag for evaluation. Five sensory panelists sniffed the bags, with clean shirts and the unlaundered load as references.
The panelists scored the clothes soaked in WIN and warm water the best, indicating it had minimal off odors, though it was not as odor-free as the clean shirts. The clothes washed with a half cup of WIN smelled about the same as or slightly better than those washed with the Era.
So in our limited test, WIN's performance claim is not unreasonable. It reduced embedded sweat odor as well as or somewhat better than the oxygenated Era, though the difference was not significant. You can improve the odor-removing performance of WIN by soaking gym clothes for a couple of hours before laundering.
WIN comes in a 21-ounce bottle, enough for 14 medium-size loads, and sold online or at sporting-goods stores.—Pat Slaven, Program Leader, Tech Division

TIPS to get them all smelling better for wearing tomorrow:
7. Mildew smell in Washing Machines: Real Simple Magazine article online HERE
1. Fabric softener is not recommended for wicking type clothing.
6. After washing & clothing is dry, give it the sniff test. If clothing still has a lingering sweaty smell, grab
a bottle of white vinegar. Pour the vinegar (full strength, do in sink to prevent any mess) directly onto the smelly areas. Wait five minutes and pour white vinegar on the areas again. The vinegar will kill any lingering odor causing bacteria that is trapped in the fabric. Re-wash clothing as usual without pre-rinsing the vinegar out of the clothing.
The vinegar will not harm the fabric and actually makes a great laundry additive for most fabric types.

Catch - Fishing
Embroidery is usually the common form of decoration with the greatest perceived value.
BUT - the new active wicking fabrics have changed this mentality. Thinner Performance fabrics
are now quite commonly decorated using Screen Printing.
While embroidery maybe more common on collared shirts, a smooth surface direct screen print
can create a clean, vibrant look that will not result in the puckering issues that are, to a degree, unavoidable when using embroidery.
What is the best type of garment decoration for lightweight polyester performance shirts?
