Redbubble Sweatshirts vs Print Quality

Overall, from the customer reviews I read, people raved about how Redbubble’s sweatshirts had sharp, colorful prints.

The colors are vibrant and the sweaters display the artwork very well. I actually found that the sweatshirts I bought looked as good or better than the product images on the website.

However, although rare, there are some instances where you might get a sweater with an image that isn’t as sharp as it should be. This is probably because an artist uploaded a small or subpar image to This can make the print on the sweater look a bit blurry or pixelated.

If this problem happens to you, don’t panic!

Redbubble is well known for making sure its customers are 100% happy with their shopping experience. Just let them know about any issue you have and I know, from experience, that they’ll make it right (hassle-free).

Another issue you might come across is when an artist puts a description that includes things like “iridescent” or “gold”. All sweatshirts have colors that are matte and have no glitter or iridescence to them.

Another thing I find a little odd about these sweatshirts is that when you first get them, you’ll probably notice a smell. Some people compare this smell to vinegar. This smell is caused by the printing process and it will go away after you wash your sweater.

It’s best to wash all your Redbubble sweatshirts in cold water and line dry so that the prints on the sweaters don’t start to fade.

My favorite tip to give anyone is to wash your sweaters inside out and don’t iron the print. This is a great way to ensure the print on the sweater continues to be totally awesome.

This was my first time ordering from Redbubble and I cannot wait to order more things!! It’s unreal how great the quality of this sweater is! I’ve barely taken it off since I’ve bought it … it’s been slept in, washed, dried in a dryer and more and the photo hasn’t cracked nor has the comfy quality gone away..

Lightweight Sweatshirts (Unisex)

I’ve never bought the lightweight sweatshirt from Redbubble before (the vintage look isn’t my style), but the reviewers said it was high-quality and that the print was vibrant.

I could not be happier with the design and material. Incredible customer service, lovely art, and overall a wonderful company! – D M. on Nov 17, 2018 [RES]

High quality shirt with graphics that pop, massive selection, easy – Brandon H. on Sep 24, 2020 [RES]

This is my new favorite sweater! It’s so comfortable and I love the design! – Linda on Dec 24, 2020 [RES]

As the name of the sweatshirt implies, the lightweight sweatshirt’s fabric is lightweight, soft, and perfect for cooler temperatures.

First time buying lightweight sweatshirt – it’s just the right weight + not too bulky. Design looked great as well – very satisfied! – Meredith on Jan 1, 2020 [RES]

I’m very happy with the way this shirt turned out. It a perfect weight and the quality is great. I would recommend. – Bekah Y. on Nov 26, 2019 [RES]

Some reviewers mentioned that this sweatshirt is soft and comfortable, with a nice fit. However, a few reviewers mentioned that they thought the collar was too wide.

It’s a good fit, but the neck hole is to large. Much larger than other sweatshirts with a comparable size and fit. – Bruce A. on Nov 11, 2020 [RES]

A perfect fit and really good quality. The print is of high quality and hasnt seemed to fade at all after a few washes. The only thing I would change is the collar. It’s slightly on the wide side but not by much – Callum on Apr 5, 2018 [RES]

Although I didn’t read many complaints about the size and fit of this sweatshirt, you might want to check my tips on how to pick your size. And if you like a baggy sweatshirt, you might want to order one size up.

I love the lightweightedness of it, but I wish it wasn’t quite so fitted! – Janis on Mar 13, 2021 [RES]

As advertised – great print, true to size (if you want roomy, size up), shipped quickly and washes well. Will def order again! – Marieke on Apr 16, 2020 [RES]

Perfectly satisfied. Super soft, really comfy, fits well around the waist and sleeves. I like that it is not too tight under the arms as well. This was exactly what I expected based on the photos! No change in size after washing.! – Marie G. on Sep 23, 2018 [RES]

Pullover Sweatshirts (Men’s Size)

I never bought one of Redbubble’s pullover sweatshirts yet, but reviewers found it comfortable, high-quality, soft, and thick.

So soft and comfortable, my favorite sweater! – Anna L. on Apr 5, 2021 [RES]

Love my pullover sweater! Super duper comfy and so cute – Amy L. on Jan 26, 2021 [RES]

Many people also mentioned that the quality of the print was great too.

It’s my favourite sweater! It fits fits perfectly and the quality and colours are amazing! – Erynn on Apr 19, 2021 [RES]

Absolutely love this sweatshirt. The fabric is thick and very soft, and the print is great quality. – Julie on Dec 15, 2020 [RES]

The print and the quality of the sweatshirt are amazing! Very soft and warm. Perfect shipping – Isabella M. on Sep 24, 2018 [RES]

Most reviewers thought the sweatshirt fit well, but it’s still best to take measurements before buying this sweatshirt! (Check my tips on how to pick your size.)

One thing to keep in mind is that the pullover sweatshirt is supposed to be a “men’s” sweatshirt. One woman mentioned that the waistband was a bit tight around her hips. And a few female reviewers said their sweatshirts were too big for them. Two reviewers also mentioned that this sweater would appear to be made for taller than average people.

The sweatshirt sizing is quite small & the shape is too slim for wide hips. So if you’re a plus size woman I can’t recommend the product. However I love my print! – Aino-Iiris on Jan 18, 2021 [RES]

I’m honestly disappointed this time. Usually, I love sweatshirts from Redbubble, but these have really stretched out necks and fitted bands around the hips/waist. Not the comfy fit of a sweatshirt. – Janis on Mar 13, 2021 [RES]

No reviewers complained about the print fading or washing off.

This was my first time ordering from Redbubble and I cannot wait to order more things!! It’s unreal how great the quality of this sweater is! I’ve barely taken it off since I’ve bought it … it’s been slept in, washed, dried in a dryer and more and the photo hasn’t cracked nor has the comfy quality gone away.. IN LOVE – Heidi K. on Apr 6, 2018 [RES]

I was very pleased with both the product and the service. Quality of both was superior. – Susan E. on Dec 31, 2020 [RES]

Exactly as described. Fairly true to size. Might be a smidge larger than I had expected, but not so much bigger that it really matters. Decent quality and thickness. Washed well. – Ryan c. on Aug 26, 2020 [RES]

Redbubble Sweatshirts vs Sizing

The way I figure out what size I want to order on Redbubble is by taking my favorite sweater and I lay it flat. Then I measure the distance between the armpits and multiply that by 2. That’s my chest measurement.

To measure the length of the sweater, I measure the distance between the top of the shoulder, right next to the collar, to the bottom of the sweater.

Then, make sure to check the size guide on the product description page (shown under the size selector, where it says “View size guide”).

I’ve ordered about 10 hoodies and sweatshirts and rarely have any problems, and the one time i did have a problem the staff were quick to help, very friendly and extremely helpful. The delivery is always quick and the standard of the clothes is great. The size guide is very helpful and all my hoodies fit perfectly, Cant wait to order my next one. – Shane D. on Jun 26, 2017 [RES]

Overview: Redbubble’s Sweatshirts Reviewed

So, are Redbubble’s sweatshirts as good as online reviewers claim they are?

Yes! Redbubble sweaters are not only good. They’re GREAT!

My friends and I have ordered so many items from Redbubble for 14 years, including their sweaters.

My personal rating of Redbubble’s sweatshirts is 4.5 out of 5 stars. I only took out the 0.5 stars because sizing can be a little tricky for first-time shoppers.

And, worse comes to worst, if your sweater doesn’t fit or you’re just not impressed with the fabric or print of your sweater, it’s easy (and free) to return a Redbubble sweater within 90 days.

I have ordered from this company about 5 times now , always love my stuff! – Tara G. on Aug 9, 2021 [RES]

Great quality and fabric! Looks good and it’s comfy! Will order more clothes in the future! – Andreea M. on Nov 20, 2020 [RES]

Excellent!! What can I say, love the designs, the fit of all you clothes is great and the quality is fantastic. Can’t stop buying things that’s the problem! – lucinda on Feb 16, 2021 [RES]
