We already know what our sublimation plate is for, we have seen the different processes that are used, we have also seen the great variety of materials and how to use them. Now comes the next question, if I am starting my business; Which printer is the right one for me? (This applies in the case of sublimation, if you are looking for printers for cards and crafts we recommend this blog post: https://emigrouprd.com/blogs/desarrollo-de-tu-business /what-should-I-keep-in-mind-to-make-cards )

As always we want to invite you to review your budget, because this will determine some key aspects. To sublimate we have 3 printer options:

1. Use one of the Epson or Brother models, which have the continuous ink system or adapt it, then you fill these cartridges with sublimation ink . This is the cheapest and most common alternative, but you must remember that these equipments are not prepared for sublimation ink (which is thicker than normal ink), so you will have to maintain it from time to time to prevent it from drying out. obstruct.

2. Acquire one of the R icoh brand Sawgrass , the advantage is that this equipment has a whole system made for sublimation so you do not have to worry about obstructions, etc. But it should advise you to have the color profile and the cost of replacements are higher, as is the equipment.

3. Opt for a sublimation printing plotter, the Epson brand, has launched models on the market for large-size sublimation printing, which is a good option because we will not have limitations when bringing our designs to life and these equipment comes with factory systems for sublimation, which ensures us excellent quality in our work.

After clarifying this point, you should analyze which is the most convenient model, depending on your needs. If you are looking for the models in option 1. , a larger size, you can opt for printers with a continuous ink system but a printing capacity of 8.5"x14" or 11"x17" .

These are the main options in the sublimation market, but there are many more models that can help you. In the case of laser printing we have the OKI , a laser printer with white toner, which allows us to work with different transfers that require toner printing.

We hope that this post has been helpful and that you can choose better, which is the equipment that suits you.
