More Colors And Brighter Prints
I have recently been annoyed with Redbubble works because there is hardly any colors and also i have been very upset because the shirt prints are really dark and not meeting the original color and when i put background glows on my work it turns out grey when it should be cyan, light green etc.
It would be AMAZING to include some of these colors for shirts into Redbubble:
And also PLEASE MAKE THE PRINTS THE ORIGINAL BRIGHTNESS!!!
There’s two things going on here.
1. T-Shirt colours – we’ve been recently working with our apparel fulfillers to improve the colours on our prints, these changes will be rolling out across the board soon so you should be seeing better, more accurate colours going forward.
2. The colour range of clothing – We try to keep a good range of colours available on the site, but we’re always happy to hear about gaps we might have. Feel free to keep adding feedback here – once the print quality changes have rolled out I’ll change this thread to be solely in regards to clothing colour requests.
Please add light shades of pink/purple/yellow/green/etc! The colors are so dark and I've found a lot of designs I love, but just don't look "cute" enough because the shirt is so dark and dampens it /: Lighter colors would definitely liven things up
I had a potential buyer ask for the v neck and scoop neck in a light blue and I had to tell them it just isn't available. Appreciate the effort just felt I had to include my 2 cents as well
It would be nice if you could do more of the Unisex T-shirt colours for your Zip-up and Pullover hoodies. Light blue, blue, orange, gold and red would make great hoodies. The current colour range is a bit dark and bare, more bright colours would be great. I really would like red and blue to be available if nothing else.
Several of our designs would work best on something as simple as bubblegum pink. We are holding off until that color becomes available! PLEASE!

I think there needs to be more color options for really light/neutral colors. Most of the time, a design (especially the more artistic, colorfiul ones) is just gonna look best on a light background. As it is, there aren't too any options for these designs other than the while tee and the light grey tee color. Adding different textures within this would look good too- like a "natural" texture cotton.
Even if all the colours were consistent across all apparel it would be much better, currently there are colours in tank tops that aren't available for t-shirts and colours in shirts that aren't available in tanks etc
I so agree with this... Redbubble should probably add or jiggle a couple of t-shirt colours every year or so as different colours are in trend each season. Some of the current colours are not very appealing. I'd love to see mint green, coral, neon yellow...
Shirt colors I would love to see:
Apple Green (Almost lime)
Bright Golden Yellow
Hot Pink (not the salmon that we currently have, but something closer to fuchsia)
yay! I've had a design that I've been keeping in private mode for months waiting for this update. It's probably the one design that really really really needed this. needed it.
It's ALL bright orange and yellow. I'll be checking up on the preview of it as I wait for this update. You can see the difference in what I mean here:
when you look at the print vs the t-shirt, it's obvious. the shirt looks HORRIBLE compared to the original. Glad to see you guys are working on this!

More colors for t-shirts, YES, especially "light and bright" (you are fine with the dark and earth-tone choices).
Please bring back pink, lavender, and yellow, but ESPECIALLY ADD AQUA.
....and would love teal, peach (orange/pink), day-glow-super-bright light green!
What happened to my pretty pastel colours? D:
Why is everything so dark and gloomy now? I really liked those gorgeous bright colours that really make shirts fun and pop! It might be hard or expensive but we have such a wide range or dark and neutrals already; some people want their shirts to scream "HEY! LOOK AT MY COOL SHIRT!" not "I'm having a bad day. Please leave me alone."

Sorry to say it may be a management issue.

I could not agree MORE.
They use American Apparel shirts, which have a vast array of colors. Yet, on this site, we are so limited. Now they announce they are deleting specific colors. Including light yellow.
There are NO OTHER YELLOW OPTIONS left.
I asked for a darker yellow some time ago, and that went over like a turd in a punch bowl.
They obviously don't care if we have colors to choose from. I don't get it. I've seen other digital shirt printing sites that offer far more colors than this site does. When I tell them if they don't offer these colors they tell me they would be "sorry" to see me go. "Sorry" is just a word. True "sorry" is an action. Show us actions, Red Bubble...get more colors. Otherwise the word is just uttered and forgotten.
My biggest problem aside from the fact that they don't print peach (like caucasian skin) well on the designs is the fact that the two orange color options for shirts/hoodies are absolutely atrocious. The lighter one is pretty much Dandelion and the darker one is far too close to being red. Please fix, RB?
turquoise, purple, lime green, a rust color, and please understand that men like color too. my husband wants a pale blue long sleeve option, and a better blue option (he hates navy blue) and so, get hip with colors please. I have clear colors on my designs and frankly, they look bad on a LOT of th ecolors here because they are all LLBean colors. boring!
BEST IDEA EVER!!!! RED BUBBLE PLEASE MAKE THIS HAPPEN I BEG YOU!!!!

AQUA T-SHIRTS! Yes, a few more colors choices! I pass blue-green shirts downtown and think how great my designs would be with that color. (and maybe also lavender.)
ALSO...indeed, more colors for long-sleeves would be fantastic.
I love you, Uncle McPaint
The problem with the printing is not so much that there are no bright colors, but that the ink soaks into the shirt. The solution is to change the way the shirt is printed. By using a more acrylic like ink, it won't soak in as much. Or, they could put down a base layer of clear, more solid ink and print on top of that.
Looking at graphic tees from other stores and places like Hot Topic, it can obviously be done. Redbubble has just decided to go with cheap quality printers. I can see why, the T-shirts can get quite expensive when you include shipping, but personally, on some of my brighter colored works, I would never buy the shirt at all because it looks so dull.
Plus 100! Now everybody's talking rgb and CMYK here, but that's not even the case here. I'm new on RB, and as far as I see -even the previews alter the original colors. Yes printing is in CMYK, but when I print my colors at home - they are correct. I work in CMYK and I actually get it (at home). I just hope the end product (tees) will come out brighter....
i would really love my shirts to be the right Hue. My stickers and cases look great, but the shirt prints look dull and boring. I work with a lot of pixels and need them to really pop to get the effect i want. Still love using redbubble despite the shirt quality
