Design Your Own Custom Ties UK
Make your own tie using your original artwork for a truly distinguished accessory. Made from smooth satin in either skinny or wide styles, you can create a necktie that adds the finishing touch to your shirt and suit. The deep, rich print on both sides and subtle sheen from the fabric produces an excellent finish turning any outfit into an impeccable fashion statement. You can make your own tie for a myriad of situations; patterned ties are perfect for livening up plain suits, funny ties are an ideal promotion tactic and novelty ties are a favourite holiday staple. Expertly crafted, your custom ties, UK made, are designed to last.
Men's Ties UK Quality Guaranteed
The specialist printing process we use to infuse the satin fabric with ink ensures your design is long-lasting without succumbing to fading. We print the necktie all over, so whichever way its styled your design will always be on show. Unique ties are a complementary addition to any men's clothing fashion brand. When we heat press on the tie, the fabric shrinks slightly resulting in a thin white line running along the seam lines at the back and on the edges of the fabric (See photo in gallery). We cannot guarantee 100% accuracy due to the way textile stretches and moves in the printing process though this will not show on the front of the tie and will not alter the overall quality of the product.
Style It With
Everybody loves a snappy suit, but even more so when there's an extra touch of pizzazz. For a casual day at the office, pair your custom ties UK with a shirt and chinos or tuck it behind a waistcoat to introduce more formality. The skinny tie is a trendy style piece, so wear with skinny jeans and a blazer for a modern-day take on the smart/casual dress code.
For best results dry clean only recommended. Small spot clean possible with warm water mild soap, and gentle sponging. Do not tumble dry, do not machine wash, do not handwash.
Reviews for Custom Ties
based on 13 customer reviews
I bought a tie with a special design that I made. I like very much the result.
I designed the tie especially for a reception at the Victoria and Albert Museum, 3/4/19. It was a 60's event. The tie looked fabulous. Received many compliments on the tie at the event. Tie was printed in 24hrs and I am super pleased with the tie.
Product quality far exceeds my expectations. Fantastic turnaround and cannot fault the whole process from start to finish.
I ordered a beautiful blue tie with an own-designed tiny aeroplane pattern, and it came out great. Great printing quality and precision for the price.
The only thing preventing a continuous flow of orders by my side is the delivery price in Switzerland, even if I have to admit that the speed was astonishing.
I wanted to make a Tie from a photo of my sons graffiti as he was killed a couple of years ago and I will be doing some TV work and wanted something of him with me. The Tie is wonderful and I can not wait to wear it on TV to show off his work. The quality of the material is really good and I am very happy with it.
Product quality is excellent, delivery was really quick and customer service was great!

Frequently asked questions:
Do these ties have a keeper loop?
Our custom ties do not feature a keeper loop, however if you prefer to keep your tie as secure as possible, you can use additional accessories such as a tie clip or a tie pin.
What is the tie made from?
Your tie is made from a luxury satin fabric which gives any style a touch of elegance and panache. Whether you opt for the traditional wide tie, or the more modern skinny tie, this is an amazing accessory for any look.
How do you print my custom ties?
Your design is repeated on both the front and back, where we press and then print onto the flat surface. This means your unique ties are self-tipping, as the inner lining is left white. A fine white line is slightly visible on the reverse.
Choose from a selection of independently designed ties by our Contrado Creatives artists.

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.
