Sawgrass Virtuoso SG400
Sublimation is a chemical process where a solid turns into a gas without going through a liquid stage. Also known as dye sublimation printing, it is a popular method for transferring images onto suitable materials. Sublimation printing does not involve the liquid step but under heat and pressure ink goes right from solid to gas and moves permanently on to fabric or treated products.
This printing method is best used on products such as polyester apparel in white or light colors or hard surfaces with a poly-coating, such as coasters, mugs, mouse pads and more.
The Sawgrass Virtuoso is the only desktop printer designed for sublimation. You'll soon be creating customized products with vibrant HD images - quickly, easily and profitably.
What is Sublimation? It is the process of printing with specialized ink on a transfer media, heating that ink while in contact with a product blank, and having the ink transfer at the molecular level, or jump, on to the product, permanently.
With sealed cartridges to eliminate outside contaminants and a print-head designed specifically for sublimation inks, the SG400 delivers photo-quality prints to decorate a whole host of products from mugs, T-shirts, coasters, mouse pads, metal signs, and so much more!
