About us

SYNcere Printing, LLC is a silk screening and sublimation printing business founded in North Liberty, Iowa in 2016 by the owner, Juan A. Santiago. The idea of the business came out of the owner’s 17+ years of working in the Law Enforcement field.

The definition of sincere is “being free from pretense or deceit; proceeding from genuine feelings.” In their line of duty, many Law Enforcement Officers unfortunately often experience individuals claiming to be completely honest with the Officers, when in reality they really aren’t. Juan chose the name “SYNcere” and switched the “i” to a “Y” to symbolize the most often asked question by Law Enforcement Officers: “Why?” Another reason for the change was to represent the naughty – or sinful – but nice – or sincere – nature of the business Juan hopes to project.

The original goal for the business was to create and print things people would like to say out loud but probably shouldn’t in an appropriate and humorous way and then sell them online. This was ‘SYNcerely’ the original plan for the business; however, people and businesses in the area found out about the new place to go and began asking to get their shirts done. The business has grown from there. An eventual goal is to open a line of Law Enforcement/First Responder themed merchandise that is both serious and funny.

As a Latino (Puerto Rican), another part of the business goal is to provide Latino-themed shirts and products and to help provide Spanish language services to one of the fastest growing ethnic populations in the state and nation.

We can print on thousands of products, ranging from t-shirts and hoodies to coffee mugs, koozies, and keychains and can accommodate any order size. We will work with you to make your vision, large or small, come to life! Simply place an order through this form and we’ll start your project.
