Reviews for Women's Custom Long Sleeve T-Shirt
based on 4 customer reviews
Loved my order. Very please. Just how i imagined it.
Very impressed with quality of the pyjamas and long tee. Photos came out exactly as shown on screen. Really impressed.
Top looks a little smaller than I expected and pyjamas a little bigger. It would be great if you did pyjama tops as well as trousers.
GREAT SERVICE - SPEEDY DELIVERY LOVELY UNIQUE WEARABLE ART.
It took me quite a wile to design my fabric, and I was nervous how it would look like. The resulting t-shirt is just perfect, good quality and excellent sewing. The colour and shape remains pristine after the first wash.

Frequently asked questions:
Are there guidelines on how to make your own t-shirt?
If you want to design your own custom long sleeve t-shirts for women, then Contrado is the place to be. Our online design interface is easy to use and understand. We give you the t-shirt template to upload each part of your fully customisable t-shirt. If you need help, our Customer Service team are available via email, phone or online chat.
What is the fit of this custom long sleeve t-shirt like?
These are fully custom, long sleeve t-shirts for women and a lot of thought has gone into the fit of this long sleeve top. It is available in sizes XS to XXL, so if you need petite t-shirts or plus size long sleeve t-shirts, you will find the perfect fit. The body of this top will skim over your figure and should show off your shape, without being too tight.
Which of the three fabric options is the best one for me?
Our custom long sleeve t-shirts for women are available in three of our printed jersey fabrics. If you want something lightweight, go with the 160gsm option. For something sturdier with slightly less transparency, our standard or medium weight jerseys are best and for a heavier or sport appropriate fabric, choose the Soft Fashion Jersey.

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?
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 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).
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.
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.
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.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
