Customer Reviews

Just wanted to say thanks for getting our shirts here on time! We love them! Thanks for doing what you do the way you do it!

The shirts are AWESOME! They are just perfect: no surprises. I was having a panic attack opening the box (as I always do with these things) but everything was perfect! All of your double checking and proofing really paid off. The shirts are also great quality! Thanks again and we look forward to working with you in the future

Hi Chris, I wanted to let you know how great the shirts turned out and how great they looked on everyone. The birthday boy was surprised so all was good. Thanks again for your great product and service, really appreciate all that.

We needed 200 tote bags screened on both sides. CONTEMPL8 came through on time for our event. We will definitely use this service again and spread the word of their excellent work and customer service.

Working with CONTEMPL8 printing has been flawless!!!!!! Since my first contact with CONTEMPL8 t-shirts, Chris has been very professional, listened to what I wanted in a design and provided excellent customer oriented feedback. The shirts turned about much better than I had hoped for and it is so nice to find a printing company that is concerned with the environment and ethics. I will use CONTEMPL8 again and I have already recommended CONTEMPL8 to others.

I would like to let you know that our shirts arrived safely. They look fantastic! Thank you so much for making the beautifully printed our very first original T-shirts. We are thinking to order, with the same design, our next batch hopefully soon.

We need to order more shirts. We've gotten lots of compliments on how well the shirts we ordered last year have held up- The ink hasn't cracked or faded at all! Thanks for all the quality work :)

Hey Chris, just wanted to let you know the shirts got here today and they look awesome! Thanks so much for getting it done in such a short time. Everyone thinks they’re great.

We at D5 Threads are new to the clothing game and Contempl8 helped get our
feet off the ground. Christopher was super responsive and gave us all the feedback we needed to have our ideas become reality. Our shirts were
printed very quickly and the finished product was heads above the standard printed shirt. We also were drawn to Contempl8's ethic of only using water based inks. We look forward to doing business again and would recommend Contempl8 to anyone looking for a good screen printer! Thanks!

Our ECS shirts just arrived today! Early! Love love love the feel of the organic cotton and the design turned out just as we imagined! Everything about this is so aligned with our Maryland Green School status! Thanks for everything you did for us every step along the way. The shirts are GREAT!
