When you order a Sawgrass SG500 printer, you get to choose from one of three inks for your printer: SubliJet-UHD, Siser EasySubli, and ChromaBlast-UHD. This package contains the ChromaBlast-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 one 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.
