FAQs about ZipSheets
What questions do you have about ZipSheets – let us know!
Are these sheets or blankets?
These are sheets – zippered bed sheets. They are made of 100% cotton percale fabric and can be used all year long. We are reintroducing flannel sheets as well which will be a cozy alternative for winter or cooler climates. Our flannel sheets could almost be considered zipper blankets because the flannel is a nice weight and very cozy! With ZipSheets all you do is place your blankets, bedspreads, comforters, duvet covers, or quilts on top for added warmth if necessary.
Are the zips all the way around?
No, The zippers are on the sides only. We place two 165 cm (65 in) long zips on both sides to join the flat sheet to the fitted sheet. We sew the base of the top sheet to the base of the fitted sheet with a small area left open for ventilation.
What is the difference between the crib and larger sets?
The crib sets have snaps that allow you to short sheet the top sheet. There are several present positions for to you use. If you have a younger child you will fold the top sheet all the way down and snap the top sheet into the first set of snaps. This will allow you to always place your toddler at the base of his/her bed. As they get older, you simply adjust the snaps until you are using the full length of the top sheet. This size is recommended crib size mattresses used as toddler beds – it is not recommended for babies under the age of 1 year. It could pose a suffocation hazard.
Do you offer gift wrapping?
We have offered free gift wrapping for Christmas gifts in the past but we are not doing so at the present time. We may offer it again in the future or on special request.
How do you ship Kids ZipSheets?
We ship most orders using USPS Priority 2-3 day mail or UPS Ground. That usually means a 2-3 day delivery but it can be up to 7 days or longer with the current COVID slowdown. There is no guarantee. If you need your order by a certain date, we recommend you order in plenty of time or contact us for guaranteed delivery dates which will require an additional charge based on your address.
How quickly will my order ship once I’ve placed it?
Orders are typically processed same day or next day unless it is during a weekend or holiday period. It depends on when the order comes in for example, an order that is received at 1 PM EST on Saturday will not ship until Monday. But we endeavor to get your order shipped as soon as possible. If an item is back ordered, it will ship as soon as it is back in stock.
How do you attach the top sheet to the fitted sheet?
We sew the top sheet to the fitted sheet at the foot end of the bed and double stitch it on. Zippers join the sheets on each side to allow for easy entrance or exit.
Will my child be too warm in these sheets?
There is no polyester in our sheets – they are 100% cool, comfortable cotton. And with the hole at the foot end for ventilation, it’s not likely your child will be too warm. Leave the top sheet unzipped on both sides for even more air flow. ZipSheets are really versatile in how you choose to use them yet they make it so easy to make the bed.
Will my child feel confined?
The beauty of our sheets is that your child can be as tucked in as they want to be. The bottom part of the sheets is attached or sewn together. There is an area left open for ventilation (to stick a foot out) but the zippers can be zipped up or down on either side. If your child feels too confined, leave them unzipped or leave one side unzipped. That way a child can get in and out quickly for a bathroom trip but that top sheet will still stay in place and be a cinch to zip up in the morning.
There is a hole at the foot end – is that a flaw or is it part of the design?
The hole is part of the design and not a flaw. The area left open is to provide ventilation, something that is unique to our design and not present in most other zippered bedding.
Which products are you recommending line dry only?
Actually, none of our ZipSheets need to be line dried now. For the first batch of flannel, we did recommend line drying them but all of that stock is gone. All current and new stock is completely safe to tumble dry. We do recommend tumble dry on low heat for about 20 minutes and remove promptly to reduce wrinkling. Leave the sheets zipped up to launder – both washing and drying – to reduce friction on the zipper. We use good YKK zippers but reducing the friction can extend the life of the product.
How do you wash it?
You wash ZipSheets as you would any other sheets. Machine wash cool water, gentle cycle, mild detergent, no bleach. Tumble dry low heat for 20 minutes, remove promptly. Leave sheets zipped up to wash in order to reduce friction on the zippers. We can not be responsible for damage done if the care instructions have not been followed.
What is your return policy?
We do accept returns for any defective product – no questions asked – and we will promptly refund or replace them. Any other return must be new, unwashed, and in the original packaging. The customer is responsible for paying the return shipping. Once we receive the return, we will give you a full refund if the product meets the return requirements. If you need to return an item, contact us promptly for specific instructions. Our product comes with a 30 day 100% satisfaction guarantee!
