Add the look of Embroidery to Your Custom Transfers

Get creative with a new look combining the look of embroidery with your custom screen-printed transfer, and all you need is a heat press.

SimStitch, a product carried by our sister company makes this possible!   SimStitch is twill that has been laser etched to give the look of stitches, but no sewing is required.    Combining this with a custom transfer gives a great mixed media look.  You can be in the embroidery business without an embroidery machine!

What To Order

To create this shirt, order a Goof Proof transfer using one of the Easy Prints layouts from the Basic section, QAL-538.   Replace the eagle clip art with the New York skyline, X16D-73. Add text to add New York in Arabrud font—one of the hundreds of font choices in Easy View.  Order  a standard adult size of 11” in white Goof Proof ink.

Next, visit and order the SimStitch Athletic script and ST11  tail using Any word, Any Way choosing the red foreground and white background for both the tail and the script.   I ordered this in the medium size to get the same 11” wide standard adult size.


First apply the Goof Proof transfer.   Since SimStitch is applied at 350 I used the Goof Proof alternative directions of 350 degrees for 4 seconds.   Peel the release paper.   Position the white background in place and apply for 10 seconds, covering up the already applied Goof Proof with a cover sheet.   Position the red Sim Stitch and apply for 30 seconds.  Your mixed media shirt is now ready to sell
