Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

FAQ: Graphic Tees

How to keep a graphic tee new?

  • Turn inside out before washing. This reduces friction and wear on the print.
  • Cold water wash. Hot water can shrink the fabric and fade the print.
  • Gentle detergent. Skip harsh chemicals that can damage the design.
  • Line dry or low tumble dry. High heat can cause shrinking and cracking.
  • Fold carefully. Avoid ironing directly on the print.

Below are detailed instructions on washing your DSGN BY D. graphic tees.

Can graphic tees go in the dryer?

It depends! Check the care label.

  • Low tumble dry is usually okay. Avoid high heat settings.
  • Line drying is always a safe choice. It preserves the fabric and print best.
  • Air fluff for a few minutes if needed. This removes wrinkles without risking shrinkage.

We recommend air drying most graphic tees, but if you must use the dryer, opt for low tumble dry on DSGN BY D. tees made with durable print technology. Safety first, style always!

Why are graphic tees so popular?

Graphic tees are beloved for several reasons:

  • Self-expression: They're a canvas for showcasing your interests, personality, or values.
  • Versatility: They can be dressed up or down, making them perfect for casual outings or statement looks.
  • Comfort: Soft cotton shirts are comfy and breathable, ideal for everyday wear.
  • Affordability: Compared to other apparel, graphic tees offer great value for their style and self-expression potential.
  • Community: They can spark conversations and connect you with people who share your interests.

Graphic tees are versatile, comfy, and a canvas for self-expression! DSGN BY D. takes it a step further with bold, unique designs that spark conversations and turn your everyday into a mini runway!

What's a good graphic tee?

A good graphic tee is more than just a cool design. Consider these factors:

  • Quality fabric: Soft, breathable cotton is ideal.
  • Durable print: Look for crisp, vibrant designs that stay put after washing.
  • Comfortable fit: Choose a size that flatters your body shape without being too tight or baggy.
  • Ethical production: Opt for brands that prioritize sustainability and fair labor practices.
  • Meaningful design: Choose a graphic that resonates with you and sparks joy.

Remember, a good graphic tee is one you love to wear and feel confident in! But beyond that, a good graphic tee has quality fabric, a durable print, and a comfortable fit. DSGN BY D. checks all the boxes, plus we add a generous dose of creative fire to ignite your wardrobe.

How are graphic tees made?

It depends on the design and printing method. Common methods include:

  • Screen printing: A stencil is used to apply ink directly onto the fabric.
  • Direct-to-garment (DTG): The design is digitally printed onto the fabric using inkjet technology.
  • Heat transfer: A pre-printed design is applied to the fabric with heat and pressure.

Different methods exist, but DSGN BY D. uses DTG for its low waste process. We care about both the look of your tee and our environment, every detail matters!

P.S. We know you're curious about the D behind DSGN. Stay tuned for the inside scoop!

What printing method do you use?

We utilize giclée printing, a high-resolution inkjet process known for its accuracy and stunning color reproduction. This method ensures your print faithfully captures the artist's original vision.

What is giclée printing?

Giclée printing, pronounced "zhee-clay," is a high-resolution inkjet printing process similar to what you might have at home, but cranked up to museum-quality! Here's why it's special for our DSGN BY D. fine art prints:

Think of it like the Rolls Royce of printing:

  • Extreme accuracy: Giclée printers use tiny ink droplets for hyper-realistic detail, capturing every brushstroke and subtle color shift just like the artist intended.
  • Vibrant, long-lasting colors: Archival-grade inks resist fading and remain true for generations, keeping your print looking fresh as a daisy even decades later.
  • Museum-quality paper: We use paper made for art, creating a luxurious feel and enhancing the depth of the image.
  • Sustainable and eco-friendly: Giclée printing often uses water-based inks and requires less waste compared to traditional printing methods.

So, while your home printer might be great for everyday documents, for our fine art prints, we wouldn't settle for anything less than the "wow" factor of giclée! It ensures your DSGN BY D. art becomes a treasured heirloom, not just a wall decoration.

What kind of paper do you use for your fine art prints?

We use museum-quality, archival-grade cotton paper for all our fine art prints. This ensures rich colors, sharp details, and exceptional longevity.
