Reviews of Review Fabric Swatch Pack
based on 28 customer reviews
What an awesome way for me to select what fabrics to print in the future. Thank you VERY much for sending them so quickly. I was amazed! I am very impressed with the quality of what you offer. THANK YOU!
I wish I had known that the classic sample pack was available years ago! What a fantastic resource!
Good sample kit, helps to answer questions. Fast service. On the website, I'd like to be able to find the fabric descriptions easier: alphabetic would help! And before ordering, I would like to be able to sort out an estimate for shipping.
This is the second sample pack that I have gotten and I saw that there are some new fabrics added to the line, which is fabulous. Thank you.
It's a printed lycra
I'm happy with the fabric quality, print saturation, and speed of delivery!
The quality was excellent! Just was I was looking for! I will be ordering all print soon. Great work!
I ordered all of the swatch decks, they came in good time and I am excited to finish my first design to send. Since all the swatches are printed with the same print, you can really get a good idea of how the fabric affects the design. I also called for design settings advice and got some helpful feedback for Photoshop settings. Thanks!
I was very pleased with both the quality of the fabric swatches and the timeliness of its delivery. However, I found that the cost of a yard of cotton fabric high, was too cost prohibitive for my needs....... I was really looking forward to ordering from Contrado. :::::::: Contrado says: Hi Kathleen, we will be able to offer you wholesale custom printed fabric and we will be in touch to explain how this system works for makers like you with repeat orders
I ordered some sample swatches and received them Immediately. Very good response and shipping.
There were so many swatches to choose from, and the quality is great. You can really tell the print quality and get a good feel of the fabric/texture/fray before ordering. My swatches arrived quickly and my coupon code was emailed to me the day my purchase was placed. Customer service is friendly, understanding, and even personable!
More than what I expected...definitely helpful in deciding on my printed fabric choices. Nice sized swatches to touch and feel weight, texture, etc.
The quality of the product was just amazing and my experience was pleasant
Frequently asked questions:
Are all the fabrics inside the swatch pack?We have a wide range of fabrics to print on and the packs show the whole range. All 80 examples are included, apart from a few specialist fabrics, such as the 3mm felt, printable leather and our needlepoint tapestry. These are hard to accommodate due to their format mass, but you can order tests prints directly of each.
Is it clear which is the heavier of the fabrics?We think that by having the samples and simply handling them personally will tell you so much about our range of custom fabrics, including the weight, and texture. If you can't decide by handling the fabric, then you can check out the specific fabric product page on the website for further details, or make a custom test print.
Is the print example a good representation?We think that the print example is a very good representation. We use a design that has solid full color and fine detail. The samples give a full representation of what the print quality is like on each textile. The surface textures very useful when deciding which to pick. You can try a test print as the next step in your selection.
