Name the fabric
"It is a great idea to send fabric remnants that would otherwise go to the landfill to crafters - However, it would be really helpful to let us know what type of fabric the bag contains, as I struggled to figure out what they are."
Fabric & label samples
"Swift, professional service with a stunning sample selection of man made/natural fabrics & 5* bespoke label range which give unique product appeal."
Great quality fabrics
"I ordered the sample swatches as I was looking for natural and organic fabrics to use. I am happy with the samples and look forwards to having some printed up for my degree show in June. "
I loved it
"Production time was fast, got a good quantity of samples to choose from, quality fabrics for a good price. Everything really well explained in the label sample book. Definitely worth it :) "
"Excellent service, good feedback, speedy delivery and a really great product. The samples of fabric and labels are really helpful."
Amazing as per!
"I’ve been ordering printed fabrics from Contrado for a while now (for Uni purposes) Now that i’ve graduated and started my own brand, I thought I’d invest in all the sample packs. I was surprised at how many samples you get, so pleased! I would definitely recommend if you want to feel all the fabrics before deciding on samples/prints etc!"
"The labels arrived quicker than expected. Love the quality of them. I'll be ordering some in the New Year. "
"Samples came quickly and very useful in progressing my work ideas."
4/5 In relation to the sampling service
"Good quality, rapid turn around, reasonably priced sampling service, unfortunately poor Pantone colour match, I’ve had 3 samples all return a similar colour. "
"Hi there :) thanks for your service, I'll definitely use your website to print my illustrations. Wonderful job you did there! Just one thing: your website could benefit from a search button"
Before ordering large quantities of fabric labels or even just short runs, you want to make sure you have decided for the right type. Folded or flat label? Which size fits my textile or garment best? We arranged this small collection of all our available custom fabric labels you can print your design on so that you can make sure to make the best choice. Our fabric labels are woven in a tight, soft satin, giving it a silky feel with outstanding wear and abrasion resistance. You can use them for any type of textile or garment from t-shirts, jumpers and jackets to blankets and cushions. Due to our printing technique the fabric label has an excellent print quality with a durable and long-lasting design. They are perfect to print your logo, brand name or design on it and give your garment or textile an exclusive look.
Please note: you cannot customise your Fabric Labels Sample Pack. Each fabric label sample is ready-printed with a full-colour design.

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.
When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Options’ 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.
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)
For most of our fabrics, there is no limit on the length of the fabric that you can order. We have a preview design window set up to 10m max to visualise the print, but that's not a print limit. If you'd like to order more, increase the quantity (x2 for 20m or x4 for 40m for example) and then you can order as much 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.
Yes, that might help you! Always incorporate any extra space or borders 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Just like many fabric printing processes, there is the potential for shrinkage. Depending on the fabric, please expect and allow between 2-8% shrinkage which you need to plan for in your dimensions. This percentage can vary from print run to print run and between fabrics, so we would advise ordering a little more material than you require for your project.
We do not offer to print on both sides of the fabric. A lot of our fabrics are semi-transparent or have some show through and this wouldn't work with double-sided printing. This is not a service that we offer on any of our fabrics.
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.
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 fulfilment. Rather than roll the fabrics, or send them in a tube, we fold them before they are sent out to you. This saves over 150 tubes a week, as well as a lot of space on the delivery van. (For delicate fabrics we ensure to package appropriately).
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.
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:

Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
