The Only Complete Sublimation Systems
Sawgrass printers are the only sublimation printers where every component is methodically crafted to work with each other. The hardware, software, and sublimation ink were all designed together from the ground up to ensure that every piece of the puzzle fits perfectly. This means you do not have to worry if your ink will talk to your printer, your printer will talk to your design software, and so forth. This provides you with one seamless and hassle-free experience, so you can focus your attention on growing your business - not on getting your printer to work right.
Sawgrass Inks are at the Heart of Sublimation
Sublimation – the process of using heat and pressure to permanently transfer ink from paper into a physical object – depends on one vital ingredient: sublimation ink.
Sawgrass has been the global leader in sublimation ink development for over 30 years. Their dedicated team of scientists continually test and refine the formulas for their inks, which are manufactured 100% in the USA. Sawgrass-approved inks deliver superior reliability and performance in Sawgrass printers, providing you with maximum value and the best possible image quality. Also, only Sawgrass inks work with Sawgrass Print Manager, providing end-to-end color management.
When you order a Sawgrass SG1000 printer, you get to choose from one of three inks for your printer: SubliJet-UHD, Siser EasySubli, and ChromaBlast-UHD. This package contains the Sublijet-UHD ink.
SubliJet-UHD is Sawgrass’ flagship dye-sublimation ink and is what most users will need. This ink is the most versatile, allowing you to print on an endless variety of polyester fabrics and poly-coated products like ceramic mugs, key chains, mouse pads, photo panels, and much more. SubliJet-UHD also works on sublimatable heat transfer vinyl.
Siser EasySubli is a sublimation ink that is designed in a collaboration between Sawgrass and Siser to work primarily with Siser’s EasySubli sublimatable heat transfer vinyl. This allows you to transfer custom designs and photos onto both cotton and dark-colored fabrics. EasySubli also produces great results on other hard- and soft-surface products.
ChromaBlast-UHD is a specially formulated ink designed to produce vibrant transfers on light-colored cotton and cotton blended garments. This achieves a similar result to inkjet heat transfer papers. Because ChromaBlast is not actually a sublimation ink, this ink will not work on products and is meant solely for light-colored cotton fabrics.
Still not sure which you need? We’ve got you covered. Read our full breakdown of the three ink types.
Note: while it is possible to swap inks, we strongly advise against doing this. As the process involves flushing a great deal of ink through your system, it is often more economical to purchase a second printer. Swapping inks is also hard on your printer lines and will void your Sawgrass warranty.
Every Sawgrass SG1000 comes with a free license to CreativeStudio, the only design tool built specifically for sublimation. CreativeStudio takes the frustration out of creation by including built-in product templates, thousands of ready-to-use designs, and a seamless integration with your Sawgrass SG1000 printer. An individual account is included with every Sawgrass printer purchase.
A premium membership to CreativeStudio is also available for unlimited access to additional features and artwork. Save 30% off your annual subscription when you register through Sawgrass with code COASTAL.
Because different materials and papers affect the way colors appear on sublimated items, it's important to adjust the ink output to ensure optimal quality. Sawgrass Print Manager is a software utility that automatically makes those adjustments for you. Print Manager works in the background, managing the flow of color information from your digital artwork to your Sawgrass printer. This reduces wasted ink (saving you money) and ensures the colors on your finished products are as accurate and vibrant as possible.
Like every Sawgrass sublimation printer, the SG1000 performs its own automatic maintenance, providing you with trouble-free printing and the ultimate peace of mind. Just simply leave your SG1000 on when not in use, and it will do the rest.
Print from anywhere and everywhere. The Sawgrass SG1000 now features WiFi Connectivity, so you do not have to be near your printer in order to send your jobs to the printer. Wireless setup is a breeze, and you will have your printer set up and printing wirelessly in no time.
The Sawgrass SG1000 offers the absolute highest print quality with its modulated dot technology, which ensures optimal image output on your sublimation transfer paper. This technology allows for more accurate placement of ink dots and better dot uniformity, which translates to higher quality transfers.
The SG1000 printer also prints up to an astounding 4880 x 1200 dpi for the ultra-fine photo-quality reproductions. This is ideal for sublimation on aluminum photo panels among many other substrates.
By default, the Sawgrass SG1000 can print up to 11” x 17”, which is perfect for printing most things like apparel, soft goods, and small to medium-sized photo panels. But if you find yourself wanting even larger prints, we’ve got you covered. The optional bypass tray for the SG1000 allows you to feed 13” x 19” sheets through – and even longer (up to 51” long!).
The Sawgrass SG1000 is backwards compatible with the bypass tray for the SG800 series printer. So if you’re upgrading from the Sawgrass SG800, there’s no need to get a new bypass tray!
