Print on jersey fabric

160gsm Standard Weight Jersey (poly)

This is a single jersey stretch fabric and is always a popular choice for customised t-shirt printing. It is strong and breathable and has a lovely cotton feel against the skin. This printed jersey prints beautifully. It has a solid, slightly opaque face, with very good printing quality showing fine lines and intricate detailing brilliantly.
Start Design

Medium Weight Poly

180gsm Medium Weight Jersey (cotton)

If you want your custom long sleeve t-shirt to have added personality, then we recommend this jersey! It is very stretchy and the fabric will bounce back into shape after it has been manipulated. This cotton jersey has a medium weight with breathable, moisture wicking properties. The base tone gives a desaturated finish, resulting in a vintage-inspired look with slightly muted colours.
Start Design

Soft Fashion Jersey

Soft Fashion Jersey

This jersey fabric is a weightier option, for those wanting a slightly heavier t-shirt. It also has an opaquer base than the other jersey options and a more elasticated give, with almost a double stretch attribute. A lovely, soft fabric, which gets the most solid colour when printing.

Frequently asked questions:

How does this men’s long sleeve t-shirt fit?

We have designed this exclusive long sleeve t-shirt to be true to size. This means that we cut them to have a fitted yet slightly relaxed shape. The sizes range from XS to 7XL. The fit is your choice. If you prefer a skinny and form-fitting shape, then we suggest creating one a size smaller, or, if you like a baggier and relaxed look, then go for one a size larger.

Is the fabric appropriate for winter wear?

There are three options of fabric when it comes to making your cut and sew long sleeve t-shirt. There are two poly jerseys and one cotton jersey, ranging from 160 gsm to 200 gsm. The lightest of these fabrics is probably best for summer t-shirts, as it is somewhat transparent. The 180 gsm cotton jersey is a great all-rounder, not too light or heavy but for a winter top, the heavier 200 gsm would be best.

Is it possible for me to brand these t-shirts?

Absolutely yes! We will soon be launching a designer marketplace online, where you can upload and sell your designs on our custom made products. You can also brand these designer men’s long sleeve t-shirts now by uploading your design and creating your own bespoke clothing label, which we stitch into the back of the neck.

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. 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. 

  • scaling-Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    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)

  • GSM ICON

    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).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    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.

  • crocking-Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • organics-Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    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.

  • 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.

  • print label option icon

    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.

  • 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.

  • colour palette

    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.
