Why does my shirt smell weird?Updated a year ago

Not to worry, that's normal!

With Direct-To-Garment (DTG) printing, you might notice a vinegar-like smell on your new item. This is a result of the fixation agent, which supports the chemistry of the ink to form strong bonds with the fabric. The smell is not permanent. Simply pop your item in a cool wash with like-colored clothing (30ºC degrees) and it will wash straight out!
