Printed Embroidery Effect-It’s Simbroidery!

Are you looking for an embroidery look without needing to sew anything—the answer is Simbroidery. Simbroidery adds the look of stitches to any full color artwork.

You can use this effect with any of the CAD-PRINTZ® products or the full color UltraColor® transfers.

Ordering Simbroidery in Easy View Design Center

To order Simbroidery in Easy View®, add your art to the artboard and select fonts and clip art if needed. Size and position images on the 11.5 x 18 sheet if ordering UltraColor Soft.

For images or digital CAD-PRINTZ, those are single image orders.

Now click the Simbroidery button on the bottom left. The image will not change on screen, but this tells our design team to add the effect.

We do recommend ordering a proof first to be sure the product meets your needs.

Ordering Simbroidery in Upload

Add your art to Choose a full color transfer option, entering your quantity and print size. The instant quote appears on screen.

Select I approve my quote.  In order notes, simply note to add Simbroidery effect.

Request a proof to be sure you like the look.

Your Proof

A proof can be ordered for any order, but is recommended when ordering Simbroidery because the effect does change the look of the submitted art. Just add “a proof is needed” to order notes.

When we start a proof, we do charge $22 but you get a .png of the artwork to view.

The proof does add to the production time so please be sure to allow 1-2 extra business days.

Simbroidery Tips

  • Use bold text and art. If the art or text is too thin the effect gets lost
  • Please no photographs. These end up being blotchy and ineffective
  • Avoid faded edges
