Design Your Own Snood
When it comes to expanding your design brand's product range, this gorgeously soft and warm custom snood is a perfect addition. Printed with your original artwork onto anti-pil, water repellent fleece, with a luxury sherpa fleece lining in 2 colours, it's a definite way to brighten up winter wardrobes. With a diameter of 20cm, your design wraps around from the front to the back, for 360° visibility. When folded, your custom neck warmer is 30cm in width and 22cm in height. Although it's one size fits all, the toggle cord can be adjusted to each individual, and even pulled to it's maximum tightness to form a DIY beanie hat. Purposefully positioned off-centre, the cord won't get in the way of your face and irritate you. Most importantly, your custom printed snood is incredibly warm and soft to touch, ensuring your neck is protected against the elements.
Style it With
Team your custom snood with a printed bomber jacket and stay warm whilst looking cool. Made from soft, thick polar and sherpa fleeces, it's guaranteed to be a winter wardrobe staple for men and women. Coordinating accessories are very on-trend, so why not design a matching beanie hat to put the finishing touch to your outfit? All printed with your original artwork, this is the ultimate way to cultivate your own sense of style and stand out.
For the everyday care of your new purchase, yours is a deceptively hardy material which is a bit tougher than it looks! To get the most out of your product, make sure you stick to these simple wash and care instructions and it should stay soft, colourful and happy.

Frequently asked questions:
Why is the toggle off-centre?
This is a practical design element to ensure the black elastic toggle doesn't get in the way of your face, like it would do if placed in the centre. When pulled tight, more of the cord comes through to the front, so as the toggle is positioned to the side, it shouldn't get in the way.
Are there any leather components?
To construct the toggle and keep it securely in place, we use black elastic cord, a silver nickel plated eyelet and a leather washer. The leather washer reinforces the toggle construction, however if you're vegan but still want a bespoke snood, get in touch and we can try to sort an alternative.
Does it have any other uses?
You can quickly fashion a DIY beanie hat out of your snood for switching up your style on-the-go. To do this, pull the toggle cord to its maximum tightness, and the snood becomes a makeshift hat, perfect if it starts raining and you don't have a hood or umbrella to hand.

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.
Why is there a barcode inside my clothing?
Due to our internal processes here at Contrado, there will be a barcode printed on your garment. This is inside the clothing and will not affect your design. It is usually found towards the bottom.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important choose RGB, this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.
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 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 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 where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfilment.
Delivery time & Costs
We handmake your item on site, which takes on average 1-2 days. Please check individual production times which are displayed next to the item price on the product page, as this varies from product to product. In rare cases when we need to re-print an item, this may take an additional 1-2 days.
After your item has been manufactured, we ship your order and send you a dispatch confirmation via email through. Please add on the production time to the delivery time to calculate when your order will be with you. The delivery time will be visible in the basket and check-out page.
