Reviews for Cut and Sew T-Shirt for Men
based on 12 customer reviews
I had this produced as a prototype, hoping to get several more made the following week. Unfortunately the rib of the shirt was sewn on in reverse from what the preview suggested. The expectation was to have the seam over the right shoulder, but actually the seam was over the left. I spent the whole of the following week trying to get an answer out of the customer support as to whether it is the sewing or the preview that is wrong. I still don't know, but at least I eventually got a voucher for a re-print, though I've had to print the shirts I wanted made with plain-colour ribs because I still don't know for sure which way around I should be printing them. The actual fabric and prints are amazing though!
I was impressed with how quickly this arrived and really happy with how it came out.
The quality of print to my shirt is faultless, no smudges anywhere, team at Contrado when I've pick up my shirt are very friendly, will definitely order from them again.
The T-shirt is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you!
Ordered a T shirt to be printed with my husbands favourite picture on it,one of the pictures that I had printed on some upholstery fabric some weeks earlier.Great products, fantastic sevice and very helpful staff, ( I had to phone them on several occasions for help with the lay out of the designs as I'm rubbish with computers!)
Husband very happy with his T shirt and we can't wait to see Grannys chair when it comes back from the upholsterers.
As always Contrado deliver and transform my design in in to a bespoke garment. I keep asking to extend your range of men's clothing and will continue to as I value the service although selection is unfortunately limited.

Frequently asked questions:
Do you have a fast turnaround time?
If you need customised clothing fast, then you have come to the right place. At Contrado, we pride ourselves on our fast turnaround time. You might think when creating a designer t-shirt, that you might need to wait days or longer to receive it. We can usually start production the day we receive a design, with our print and sewing team working together to make your t-shirt quickly, carefully and efficiently. Turn around time is usually 48 hours with next day delivery available.
What does "Cut and Sew" mean?
Cut and sew is the term used to describe a garment, which has been made by hand and customised from raw fabric, rather than one, which has simply been purchased, already completed and then just printed. Our cut and sew clothing is made piece by piece, with each panel individually printed. They are then stitched together to create the final garment. It is great to wear cut and sew clothing when you can, as you will be wearing a unique and exclusive piece made just for you.
Which parts of the cut & sew t-shirt can I personalise?
Our Men's Cut and Sew T-Shirt is a made to order, handmade item. Thanks to our t-shirt pattern template, you can design several areas of this print on t-shirt, which are then sewn together to create the final product. You can personalise up to six areas of this top; the front, back, left sleeve, right sleeve, neck rib, and you can also add your own label, which is sewn into the back of the neck. This is ideal for brands, logos or just adding a special message.

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?
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail, jpeg is fine.
Why is there a barcode inside my clothing?
Due to our internal processes here at Contrado, there will be a barcode printed on your garment. This is inside the clothing and will not affect your design. It is usually found towards the bottom.
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 2-8% shrinkage which you need to plan for in your dimensions. This percentage can vary.
Can I print on both sides of the fabric?
We do not offer printing on both sides of the fabric, as many 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.
Can I order labels in another fabric? Will you cut them as you do with the normal fabric labels?
At the moment 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. You can order the fabric of your choice and make the labels yourself, but we do not cut different fabric into labels.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are printed using water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat 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.
