Each item on Heart Breake is printed especially for you once you place an order.
For our basic mens, womens & kids apparel we use direct to garment printing, which involves applying a pretreatment before loading the garment into a printer. This ensures the prints sink into the fibres of the textile, making them much more long wearing than traditional ‘transfer’ prints, which just sit on top.
Our full bleed range, which includes products like the graphic tee, leggings, scarf & A-line dress are created using a different technique called sublimation printing, which uses heat sensitive inks. Under heat, these inks turn into gas and combine with polyester textiles. Since the ink becomes part of the structure of the material, the images on the fabric don’t fade or crack, even after many washes.
Mostly. Most of our basic mens, womens & kids tees are cotton. There are a few exceptions to this (like the tri-blend tees), but that can be clarified in the ‘Product Info’ tab when you toggle between styles.
It’s also important to note that all of our full-bleed garments (graphic tee, contrast tank etc.) are constructed from a polyester blend, which allows for the embedded and flowy sublimation prints.
Upon arrival, you may find your t-shirt comes with something a little extra. Extra residue and any strange odors are caused by the process used to print the design. Washing your new tee in cold water and hanging it to dry should do the trick.
We recommend that you wash all of your Heartbreake garments in cold water and line dry. Not only is this great for the environment, but it will ensure the longevity of your prints, not matter what type of product you’ve purchased. Heat is used to apply the designs, so it can also affect how well and how long your print wears.

If your garment isn’t fitting quite how you’d like, submit an Exchange request so we can sort things out for you.
Our leggings are great for every lifestyle. Be warned: they do run small, so please size up.
