How Your Towels are Printed & Made
We print your unique designs onto one side of the towel using dye sublimation. This process fuses the ink to the top layer of the fibres resulting in a long-lasting bond. Hand cut to size and stitched together by our expert seamstresses, these really are a one of a kind product. To create the 'hem', we simply overlap around 1cm of the fabric onto the reverse. However, if you decide to print on both sides, we print on another piece of fabric. The two layers are then expertly sewn together, resulting in double thickness and a flawless finish.
You can machine wash your bathroom towels for a lifetime and the print will remain bold and colourful. For best results, we recommend washing before first use to soften the towelling fibres. You can put in the washing machine at 30°c.
We suggest opting for a detailed print featuring lots of motifs, shapes and lines, instead of plain colours. When printing solid block colours, some of the white microfibre towelling can be visible when the fibres are brushed a certain way. Avoid large areas of block colour to avoid this happening and ensure your printed bath towels look beautiful.
Reviews for Bath Towels
based on 2 customer reviews
I have receive beach towels and I am happy with the product. My experience has been good.
I ordered a towel for my final degree show at uni without realising it wouldn’t arrive in time. My friend told me to email and explain the situation in the hopes they could rush my order. I was emailed back by Julian who rushed through my order and arranged for it to be delivered on a Saturday even though i hadn’t paid for Saturday delivery and the postman who delivered it said the company had paid for extra delivery. I was so shocked!
How does this product enhance my...
Design bathroom towels for all the family and never argue about a stolen towel again. They can be designed to complement your existing bathroom decor, or printed with each family member's name for easy identification. They're also great for guest rooms, as you can print a warming message to make friends and family feel at home.
Include printed bath towels as part of the offering at private hospitals. Towels take up a lot of luggage, so relieve patients of this worry and supply branded towels to use during their stay. Another idea is to offer towels for private leisure club members, so they can pop in for a swim or gym session spontaneously after work.

Browse Designer Printed Bath Towels
Our #ContradoCreative artists have designed their own originally printed bath towels. Wrapped around your body after a hot soak or decoratively rolled up for the guest en suite room, they're a fun addition to any morning routine.
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.
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.
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)
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).
What are the 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.
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 the 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.
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.
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.
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.
