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 Soft (formerly Stretch Litho Matte)

Ordering Simbroidery in Easy View Design Center

Your Free 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 $45, but once you approve the proof,  and the order is placed,  the $45 you spent is applied to the order.   In the end it is no extra cost.   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
