What is Dye Sublimation Printing? (Scroll down to see dye sub printers in our web store)

Dye sublimation is a process during which images are printed onto a special transfer paper using dye sublimation inks.   The printed images are then transferred onto products using heat.  The inks contain special dyes that when heated will penetrate deeop into the polyester fibres or polymer coating creating a permanent image that wil not wash out and cannot be detected by touch.

Dye sublimation prints are highly sought after in the sports, workwear and promotional items sectors because the printed image does not seal the fabric, so the fabric can still breath and allow moisture to evaporate.

 

Desktop printers - SG-400 (A4) and SG-800 (A3) size

The SG 400 printer can print up to A4 size using the cassette tray or with the optional Bypass tray, the maximum print length can be extended up to 129cms.  This model can be used with Standard capacity ink cartridges only.

The SG 800 printer can print up to A3 size using the paper cassette or with the optional Bypass tray, the maximum print length can be extended up to 129 cms.  This model can be used with both standard capacity ink cartridges and extended capacity cartridges. Extended capacity cartridges last longer and reduce the cost of ink per print.
