It is very unusual for a screen print to fade after washing. Most screen prints will last years or decades. If your print was done with water-based ink or digital printing, fading is a little more common. It isn't that the ink is washing out of the shirt, but the fibers of the shirt start to soften and work their way through the ink, making the ink look faded. By this time, we hope you've gotten lots of love out of the shirt and accept it as it becomes awesomely vintage. If your shirt has faded in a very short period of time, please contact us with a photo so we can look into the problem.
