Flex/Flock Tshirt Quality over time
 
Hi All,

I was wondering with spreadshirt, how long do flex/flock shirts last overtime given improper handling (regular machine wash, not inverting shirts, regular dryer)?

My friend says that this is what flex results in:

Is this true for spreadshirt tshirts?

Thanks!

Aren't you supposed to turn the shirts inside out to wash them? And I looked at those & thought they were digital designs.

No, this shouldn't happen with a properly applied flock or flex transfer.

I have shirts from spreadshirt that I've washed at least 2 dozen times without any cracking like that.

Any t-shirt that is not properly printed will crack, no matter which printing method is used.

I have worked for Spreadshirt for about a year now and I wash and dry my flex/flock t-shirts all the time. I would have to say that they Flex/Flock has held up perfectly. Actually I think it looks better than the screenprinted shirts after multiple washes.

Also - the flock on my shirts gets fluffier after a trip through a dryer.

i use subliflock from johnson plastics, cut out design and iorn on, they last longer then the t-shirt, great way to do dark cotton shirts with sublimation

I know someone with a flox shirt that has been washed 3 a week for over a year and still looks good. The flock came from Vinyl Cutters, heat presses, heat transfer material, transfer papers and heat printing supplies all at affordable prices.

I do flock shirts for a dance troup. (Krumpers) So they get beat up pretty good. The first shirts I did over a year ago still look great!

I have been using Flock & flex for years, it's very reliable and lasts for years actually if heat set properly ! You can view samples here at my website...
