print on standard weight jersey 160 fabric

160gsm Standard Weight Jersey (poly)

One of our most popular fabrics, the Standard Jersey is a great choice for vest printing. This single jersey stretch fabric is light and breathable, and has a very soft feel against the skin. It has a solid, mostly opaque face with great print quality, and is great for designs with fine lines and intricate details.

bounce jersey 180 medium weight cotton

180gsm Medium Weight Jersey (cotton)

This weft-knitted natural cotton fabric is blended with 5% Elastane, adding just a little bounce. This fabric combines the great soft texture of natural cotton with the stretch properties of elastance, ensuring that your finished vest will wash perfectly and keep its shape. Great for vests that are just a little more fitted to the body. As our Cotton Jersey is made of a natural cotton it has a slightly off-white base tone, giving slightly muted colours in comparison to the other jerseys. This gives your t-shirt a completely different, authentic look.

Heavy airflow 220gsm sports fabric

220gsm Airflow Sports (poly)

This poly-blend fabric is pique knitted with small dimples across the face, which allow air to circulate through the fabric. The dimples give the surface of the fabric a distinct texture, but do not disrupt the overall print. The best choice for your vest if you're using it for playing Basketball, jogging or other sports.

Frequently asked questions:

Can I create a vest for plus sizes?

You certainly can! At Contrado, we don't believe that style and fashion should be dictated by size: all our clothing is made on-demand, by hand, to your size. This Vest is available for all sizes from XS to 4XL plus size vest.

Is this Vest good for Sports?

Our Airflow fabric is a slightly weightier fabric option, but is breathable and moisture-wicking, keeping you cool whilst exercising. The finished fabric has a slight surface sheen and excellent print quality. A great choice for Basketball vests, Workout tops and jogging apparel.

What is "Neck Ribbing"?

The Neck Ribbing is the thin band of fabric that runs around the neck hem. You can design your neck ribbing any way you like with photos or text, but it also looks great just as a solid colour. Match your colour with the rest of the image on your vest, or pick a bold, contrasting colour to really draw the eye.

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 stopping 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.

  • GSM ICON

    What does GSM mean?

    Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    What are bleed areas?

    When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on garments a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric, and sewn into finished products, which gives a better finished result and all-over print. We 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, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?

    We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns, but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.

  • print label option icon

    Can I print my own Labels?

    Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.

  • 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.
