My material has printed very clearly and bright which I wanted. The help and quick service was exceptional and I will definitely order from here again.
The product was great. I looked everywhere for a very specific feel and quality of material, and after others promised us what we asked for and failed to deliver, I tried Contrado as my last resort and sure enough they delivered as promised. I'll be using them for any jobs of this nature I have from now onwards
The printed fabric is as expected and a good colour match to previous orders. Using the online fabric design tools was easy and fast turn around from design to delivery is great.
The print was exactly as I’d ordered arrived quickly and the site was easy to use.
