Contrado Imaging

Contrado Imaging specialises in digital printing on fabrics. Fashion designers, students and businesses select a fabric or product, and then upload photos, patterns or art to create a customised design. Each order is handmade, often within 24 hours. Contrado has a network of 40 websites in nine languages across 14 territories and employs more than 100 people. Managing director Christopher Childs founded the London-based firm in 2002 and sales almost doubled in 2021 to £24m, boosted by demand for its online printing service during lockdown.
