Custom Shorts UK
Featuring a rear pocket which fastens using two velcro pads, you have plenty of places to store your essentials with these custom men's shorts. The 1.5-inch waistband widens to two inches at the front and is elasticated at the back. A double button and zip fastening at the front of the waistline ensure that your print on demand men's shorts remain in place, perfect for when you're playing sports on the beach.
Your label, your brand
Want to build your fashion brand? Then add your label to your custom shorts, UK hand made at the same time as your garment, and have your brand name or logo added to the finished product.
Style it With
Custom men's shorts are a great way to turn some heads. Pair with custom sunglasses featuring the same design, and round this look off with a pair of custom flip flops for a 100% unique style, that oozes personality. You could even create a beach towel to complement your design, or a matching bikini, so that you and your partner can catch those rays together.

Very nice fabrics prints and great customer service
Happy with products. The addition of ties to the shorts would be good in case slightly to big to hold up.
I was amazed at the speed at which I got my order! Your service and responsiveness is great.
The printing on all three items I ordered was very nice, colors were great.

Frequently asked questions:
How do I change the thread colour?
This is selected when you choose the button colour. If you select the white buttons then your stitching thread will also be white, and when you select the black buttons your stitching thread will be black.
What is peached fabric?
Peached fabric has undergone a finishing process which stretches the fabric while drying. This is done once the weaving process has been finished. If you look at peached fabric really closely (under a microscope) it appears a little hairy.
Are these custom shorts waterproof?
Custom men's shorts, UK made, are splash proof, not waterproof. They are super-fast drying, with some water resistance, however, would not stop you from getting wet if you went running into the sea.

What's the best resolution to print in?
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.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
