We love fashion, textiles, printing and all things custom. We want to help inspire future generations of fashion designers, pattern designers, seamstresses, tailors and dressmakers. What better way to do so than to support those who are studying? After all, the future of the industry is in your hands. Read more about our Student Discount.

• Fabric printing (excluding test prints & hemmed fabrics)
• Custom fabric labels
• Paper swing tags
• Leather swing tags
• Transfer paper
WHAT IS THE SITEWIDE SHOPPING CONTRADO STUDENT DISCOUNT?
As well as the 30% academic discount, all students will also be eligible to receive a 20% shopping discount which applies sitewide. This 20% Student Shopping Discount applies to the Contrado ranges of clothing, homeware and stationery. In fact, the list is so extensive that it is easier to tell you the very few things it doesn’t apply to:
20% Student Discount is not valid on the following IDs

WHAT IF I'M A STUDENT OUTSIDE OF THE US OR CANADA?
For students located outside of the US or Canada, you will be able to apply for a student account and receive your student discounts although these will be set at a different rate. This is a 40% academic discount for the UK, and 20% academic discount for the rest of the world, with a minimum estimated cart value of $40 or equivalent. The 20% shopping discount will remain the same 20% for all students, everywhere.
Don’t forget to check out the Fabric Shrinkage and Hemming allowance information (very important). You can find this information in the “Print Guidelines” tab, where you can also find a short video on how to use our design interface.
Make sure delivery is set to your main delivery address. You may change your main delivery address; however, you can't share your account or access as this is in breach of your Student Account T&Cs and your account would be terminated.
I'VE FORGOTTEN TO LOG IN TO MY STUDENT ACCOUNT CODE BEFORE PAYING
If you proceed through payment without logging in and applying your student discount code, unfortunately, it is too late to deduct this afterwards. If it is within 30 minutes you may be able to cancel your order and then reorder from your account. Please check out our terms and conditions
for more information on order cancellations.
DO YOU OFFER STUDENT DISCOUNT FOR FABRIC SAMPLES?
The student discount can’t be used for fabric samples. However, if you are ordering multiple samples then you will find that our quantity discount will apply. This is automatic and will save you almost half your basket price.
I HAVE A STUDENT DEADLINE; CAN YOU MAKE IT QUICKER?
We offer very quick production times and most of our orders are completed and shipped within our estimated production times. This speedy turnaround of 1 - 2 days on average, when paired with our express delivery option, will allow you to receive your order extremely quickly. We advise where possible to order within plenty of time and take into consideration production times. We do state these on each page to try and help you plan.
