Dear Great Iowa Tractor Ride Participant,
During the Ride this year we noticed that some of the white driver shirts became discolored when worn out in the sun before being washed. After talking to the printer, we discovered that this discoloring might be a result of a new printing process we used this year that allowed us to more accurately print our sponsor logos.
Part of this new process was a pre-treatment layer that was sprayed on the shirts before the ink was applied. The printer said that some of the shirts may have received too heavy of a pre-treatment layer, which would explain the discoloring. The printer also told us that the best way to wash out this pre-treatment layer is to wash the shirts in cold water the first time.
If your shirt became discolored and remained discolored after washing -- whether it was washed in cold or hot water -- please email us with your name, address and shirt size and the printer will re-print the shirts needed at no cost to you.
Deadline for responding is July 10, 2012. Replacement shirts will be printed and mailed to you after that date.
We appreciate your support.
