What type of blank products require sublimation printing? Hard surface items such as: Mugs, Tiles, License Plates, etc. You

more about sublimation printing.
Inks for Epson Printers
are some helpful hints for those who are just getting started:
- What is sublimation printing?
If you want to print on mugs, license plates and other popular hard
surface items then Dye Sublimation printing is the answer!
- Please keep in mind that this type of printing requires
that your computer operating system be compatable
with the PowerDriver Pro Software. Please check the details
of the PowerDriver Pro software and your computer operating system
prior to making a purchase.
- Like most printing processes there is a learing curve.
With sublimation printing the learing curve is perhaps a bit longer,
in that, you must learn to use graphic design programs such as CorelDraw,
PhotoShop or Hanes Sublimation Maker
which in our opinion is the easist to use.
- In addition there are color control management features
to learn. The best advise we can give you is for you to
make a small investment by purchasing the Sublimation
Video Tapes. This process is not hard to learn but there is
nothing better than seeing how this process is done with your own
About Sawgrass Products
should note that for the bulk ink feed set-ups (that use the Quick Connect Kit)
Sawgrass Inks uses a sealed bulk ink feed system (ie: vacuum sealed ink
bags). These sealed ink bags significantly lowers the cost per print and ensures that your ink stays free from contamination. Open bottle systems tend to allow the sublimation inks to dry out and clog the print heads and/or the bulk ink feed tubes! Thereby
wasting valuable sublimation ink and causing you lost production time.

Explanation of PowerDriver Pro Software
Driver Pro for Windows
PowerDriver Pro is our own proprietary printer software, working alongside
Epson's printer software to automatically color match artwork for
metal, ceramic, fabric, mouse pads, and Unisub wood board. PowerDriver
automatically sets the Epson printer settings for SubliJet printing.
Using PowerDriver is simple. Simply design your
artwork, print to the PowerDriver printer, and transfer the image.
Colors print the way you expect and photographic images look like
the original. For spot color matches, PowerDriver comes with a useful
color table that approximates Pantone spot colors for corporate logos
PowerDriver works alongside any graphics design software that runs
under Microsoft Windows operating systems. If you can print from your
application, you can print to PowerDriver!
