This is a spun yarn blend, of an off white poly base face and a grey marl cotton loop back. The back is made up of multiple different types of thread, making a mottled thread effect which is then knitted using the back loop knit pattern, which twists the stitch. This is a matt fabric which has a solid feel to it weighing 255gsm. The custom Vintage Sweat fabric has a tight knit makes it quite dense so that light doesn’t pass through it easily, it does however provide a generous stretch in both weft and warp directions.

This fabric was dyed to Oekotex Standards, so rest easy knowing your print will be looking great with a bold contrast. the base is an off white due to its additional tones of the grey marl making its way through to the face. The marl back is a fine grey thread. Being a solid fabric limited amounts of the design can be seen when shining light through them.

  • Quick, quality and friendly. I ordered some printed fabric to make a banner for a client and I couldn't be more pleased. We received the printed canvas fabric in just after three working days!! The quality of the print turned out to be amazing, the colours are very bright and very accurate to how they look on my computer screen. The online chat service was very useful and I received very good advice regarding the characteristics of the fabric and which one was the most suitable for my project. My client and me are very happy with the quality, the quick turnaround and the friendly service. Well done guys!

Frequently asked questions on Vintage LoopBack Sweat Jersey 255gsm:

Will the Grey show through in my print?

The Grey marl is the backing fabric for a light grey / white poly face, so if you have a light colour design you may have a grey hue, but if you have solid and bright or dark colours then no hue is apparent.

Can I print on the looped side of the fabric?

We only accommodate printing on the white face of the fabric as it is the smoother option, with a tighter weave and will give you a higher quality of print. If you would like to print specifically on the looped back, you might want to look into pressing onto the back with heat transfer paper, which you can purchase from us. This won't give you the flawless, deep print, which we can offer on the face, but it will still give you a very good effect.

What is the difference between the Vintage Sweat and the Loop Back Jersey?

There is the obvious difference of colour, but also they are different in weight by 5gsm. Their construct and their properties are otherwise very similar.

Print Guideline

  • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important choose RGB; this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.

  • Print-Roll Length Fabric Guide Icon

    Maximum dimensions

    There is no limit on the length of the fabric that you can order. We have a preview design window set up to 5m max to visualise the print, but that's not a print limit. If you'd like to order more, you can increase the quantity (x2 for 10m or x 4 for 20m for e.g.) and then your orders can be as long as you'd like, with a built in automatic volume discount too. The maximum print width of each fabric can be found on the individual fabric pages or in our design interface.

  • Borders-Print Guideline Icon

    Do I need to incorporate white space within my design if I want a border or some cutting space?

    Yes, that might help you! Always incorporate any extra space or boarders into your purchased fabric size. We trim squarely around fabric samples and fabric prints, leaving approximately 5mm white space. Cutting neatly on the line has an additional fee.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on fabric a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not; we like to test meticulously so that we know what gets best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, and if you have access to a heat press you can press your own fabrics easily.

  • Shrinkage-Print Guideline Icon

    What is the situation with material shrinkage?

    Just like many fabric printing processes, there is the potential for shrinkage. Depending on the fabric, please expect and allow between 2-6% shrinkage which you need to plan for in your dimensions.

  • Print-Both Sides Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • Labels-Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    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.




Sizing For Hemming And Shrinkage

Hemming Options ICON

We have a full Cut & Sew service here at Contrado, and are able to hem your fabric prints for a small additional charge. We create a small one- or two-fold hem that typically uses 5 to 20mm of material, depending on the thickness of the fabric. So, for example, if you want a finished piece of fabric that measures 100 x 100cm, you will need to order a size of 101.5cm x 101.5cm to allow for the hem (on top of that please also allow for shrinkage of min 2%). The thicker the fabric, the bigger the hem will be. You can choose to have your prints hemmed with either Black or White thread. On our silk and other light woven fabrics, one hemmed edge will be straight (vertically down the roll) and the other will be slightly rippled. The hemming material allowances are as follows and you need to make your print bigger to accommodate the hem:

  • Light Fabrics (20-100gsm): For silks and other light fabrics, we use 6-8mm in the hem (2 fold), so overall width/height will be minus 12-16mm
  • Medium Fabrics (101-200gsm): For medium-weight fabrics that fray, we use 15-20mm in the hem (2 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 35-40mm
  • Stiff/Heavy/No-fray fabrics: we use 15-20mm in the hem (1 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 35-40mm

All of these measurements are approximate and can vary. Including with shrinkage it can mean a fairly significant difference to ordered dimensions, so please plan your print accordingly. Depending on how open the weave is, our fabric can shrink anywhere from 2% to 8% with the average being 2.5%.
