These care instructions for vinyl shirts are free printables and are perfect to hand out along with your HTV or Iron On personalized t-shirts or sweaters.
Personalized garments with HTV are so fun to make, but there are certain ways to wash and take care of them for them to last. Despite if you are making shirts for a friend or selling them as part of your business, I think it’s important to let people know how to take care of their shirts and sweatshirts so they can withstand the long haul! That’s why I have designed some fun vinyl care instructions printables so you can attach a care card to your cute heat transfer vinyl product and your friends and customers will know exactly how to take care of them!
I also have adhesive vinyl care instruction printables for all those cups and mugs!
General rules when washing Iron-on vinyl projects

Supplies to use with vinyl care instructions
I know these are printables, but I’m offering them with all the cut file formats. You can use the jpeg to just print out regularly and just cut out. BUT if you can use the SVG and then use the print and cut feature and let your machine cut out and do all the hard work!
If you are looking for a great printer to use – I love my HP! I wrote up a whole post about The reasons I love the printer.
This post also shows how you can make sure you are getting the best prints by adjusting your settings!
Cutting out the printables:
I love Fiskars! Nice sharp scissors will get you the best-looking edges! As I said, there is an SVG format so you should be able to use these printables with the print and cut (silhouette cameo) or print then cut (if you are using Cricut). I have a youtube video about using print and cut if you need a crash course! Since these printables are shaped, it would be a lot easier to let your cutting machine do the work for you than trying to cut around with scissors.
Personalizing these vinyl care instructions
You can upload these free printables and add in your info or business logo. There are lots of apps and software that can accomplish this. You can use procreate, picmonkey, or Canva. Upload the image and add in the text if you want to include more instructions. You can also upload your logo and place it on the bottom.
I also know that in procreate you can add in some color if you want more than the basic black and white!
