160gsm Standard Weight Jersey (poly)
This is a popular option for jersey fabric printing. The 160gsm jersey is a beautifully soft and gentle material, which works very well for personalised t-shirt printing. More opaque than the 130gsm, you can create slightly lighter patterns with this jersey. Colours and details show up well.
180gsm Medium Weight Jersey (cotton)
This jersey fabric is full of character and bounces back into its original shape. A custom printed cotton jersey with a medium weight and drape. It is moisture wicking, and is the perfect jersey for summer clothing. Details print well, while repeat patterns look best. Colours printed on bounce cotton jersey will appear slightly muted.
190gsm Heavy Weight Jersey (poly)
This heavy jersey fabric will give your customised t-shirt the most opaque finish. It is also very soft and elastic, which makes it very comfortable to wear. T-shirts made out of this jersey are perfect for casual wear and sportswear. The matte finish showcases colours boldly.
245gsm Fluid Velour
High-stretch fabric with a ripple and shine. This knitted fabric is a plush textile with a sheen and mesh-like construct. It has a short pile with a super-soft face and a soft touch back for a smooth, delicate feeling on the skin. Ideal for clothing with a slight glisten when it catches the light.
Your label, your brand
Want to sell your tees and need a professional finish? Add a printed label to your custom ladies' t-shirts and you can show off you brand with a big, full colour label. Sewn flat from the same soft fabric, this label won’t irritate the back of your neck like cheap woven labels. And because we make each one individually, you can make it as personal as you want: even add a custom message for your customer. Contrado’s bold t-shirt labels will get customers talking about your fashion brand.
Style it with
Made from soft fabric and cut in a fashionable and flattering style, these ladies' t-shirts with a pocket will make a very welcome addition to your wardrobe. Pair this personalised crew neck t-shirt with all of your fashion basics; from skinny jeans to a floaty maxi skirt. If you want to take advantage of a customised closet, then team your tee with a pair of the custom leggings in either a matching or clashing print and zip up a custom hoodie over the top. Casual yet utterly fabulous.
Turn inside out before washing. 30°c wash. Do not wring. Low heat iron, Iron on the reverse of the printed side. Do not tumble dry.

Ladies T-Shirt Fitting Details
This is the fitted Ladies T-Shirt for a more traditional look. Our model Andrea is 5'9" with an 84cm bust, 62cm waist, 92cm hip and wears a size Small.
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change colour using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image.
How will my image scale?
When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Image’ tab, the displayed dimensions under ‘Print Size’ will show the dimensions of the piece of fabric that you are ordering. For image/design dimensions you need to see the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab. You can see and edit the dimensions of the image under the quality information next to the thumbnail.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What is gsm?
Grams per square meter (gsm) is the unit of measurement used to measure the weight of a paper or fabric. This measurement uses the weight of one square metre (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a fabric. We classify fabrics of 10-100gsm as light (fabrics for summer, fine silk), fabrics of 101-249gsm as medium (most fabrics for clothing) and fabrics of more than 250gsm as thick (upholstery and other specialised fabrics).
What is the bleed area?
When creating your product, it is important to make sure that your image is a little wider than the size needed. In printing, the bleed area allows you to obtain a borderless print. We would advise filling the blead areas, maked with a red checkered area, to ensure you don't end up with white edges. You should make sure that you do not put important details within the bleed area as these will quite likely be lost.
What is crocking and why might it occur?
Crocking, which is fading along the creases, often after washing or heavy use, occurs when you digitally print on natural fabrics - more so when dark or dense colours are used. It can be minimised by using a cool hand wash instead of machine washing as the tumbling of the machine is the main cause of this. To avoid entirely, we would advise using a poly fabric.
Why do my colours appear lighter on organic fabrics?
Our organic fabrics do not have any coatings that the non-organic fabrics have. This means the ink absorbs into the fibres, reducing the colour strength slightly (by approx. -40%). For super strong colours we recommend a non-organic natural fabric.
Can you perfectly join two separately printed panels?
We always try to provide the utmost precision in printing and manufacturing. However, due to unavoidable stretching or movement of the fabric at the time of sewing, we can not guarantee a perfect alignment of the pattern on the seams of the garment. Generally we are accurate to 2-3mm, which is sufficient for most reasons but can pose minor problems with patterns or geometric designs.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Is it possible to print your own label?
Most of our clothing is made with a label space. You can print your label and add information about your brand. If you want to sew your own labels, we offer customizable labels of different sizes.
Can I print on both sides of the fabric?
We do not offer printing on both sides of the fabric, as a lot of our fabrics are semi-transparent. As the customer, you can consider the effect of printing on both sides one of our fabrics and contact us, and we will get back to you if it's feasible.
Can I order labels in another fabric? Will you cut them like you do with the normal fabric labels?
At the moment no, our labels are all printed on the same satin fabric. We may introduce more in the future, but for now this is the best choice. The labels are all cut the same way. You can order the fabric of your choice and make the labels yourself, but we do not cut different fabric into label format.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
Why are there slight colour differences between my orders?
We work at improving our colour profiles all the time. Though rare it may happen that from one print run to another, and there could be slight colour differences, this is normal and part of the process when we are constantly improving. It is extremely unlikely that there will be a huge difference (like orange instead of red for example). Please bear in mind such colour variations can be intensified from fabric to fabric due to the varying grains and textures of the fabric; natural fabrics tend to have more muted colours than their poly alternatives. This is due to the construction of the materials as well as the print methods that have to be altered slightly for more delicate, natural textiles.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
Delivery time & Costs
We handmake your item on site, which takes on average 1-2 days. Please check individual production times which are displayed next to the item price on the product page, as this varies from product to product. In rare cases when we need to re-print an item, this may take an additional 1-2 days.
