New Embroidery Art Effect Available

Do you want the look of embroidery on your custom transfer?     We have a solution for you, Simbroidery.  Simbroidery is a digital transfer art effect that gives you the look of embroidered thread.   This is  an especially good alternative for hard to embroider items such as backpacks and bags or for thin fabrics that won’t hold up to a sewing needle.

Products you can use Simbroidery

The Simbroidery effect can be added to any of the UltraColor products including UltraColor Max (DTF) Direct to Film transfers, and UltraColor Pro, UltraColor Soft, UltraColor Stretch and UltraColor Stretch with blocker.

There is no extra charge to add Simbroidery to UltraColor Pro, UltraColor Soft and UltraColor Stretch. With UltraColor Max there is a $26 art fee for the added effect, and with this product you will get a proof to approve. This $26 fee does include any design in the 22″ x 22″ space that you would like the added effect on multiple designs be sure to gang the sheet.

Simbroidery Art Tips

The art requirement for Simbroidery is very similar to the art requirements for embroidery.  Here are some tips to get the most out of the effect:

  • Avoid high detail-super fine detail.  The detail will print but have little of the simbroidery effect..
  • Text should be .25” tall or larger
  • Avoid gradients
  • Photographs won’t work with this effect
  • Avoid distress
  • vector art preferred
  • no less than 300 dpi for bitmap images
  • Minimum line thickness is .018”
  • Minimum show through thickness is .03”
  • Image prints in full color (CMYK) and may not match original colors exactly. Exact PMS or color matches may not be attainable
