Concerned about longevity
(Davis, CA) - July 22, 2012
We ordered two of these shirts-one for our child, one for a friend's child. The print colors are bright and cheerful, the design is very cute, and the printing of the names was just as we had ordered it.
However, we were disappointed to realize that the design is not printed directly on the fabric. It is a large iron-on transfer. The front of the shirt is stiff and has the texture of the iron on transfer. The transfer texture is a large square that covers the whole printed design including the backround of the design.
We have used these types of transfers before, and they do not last through more than a few washings before they start to crack and peel. The washing instructions indicated that the printing is fragile.
Would not buy this again, because this is an iron-on transfer rather than printed on the shirt. It's really too bad, because the design is very cute.
