4 The Sublimation Report • Spring 2020 • O ur journey on the road to sublimation success continues to pick up speed. With thousands of products to deco- rate and more constantly being introduced, there is a corresponding need to improve the sublimation process with better pro- duction equipment such as printers and heat presses. Late last year, we saw the introduc- tion of Epson's F570 24-inch sublimation printer (see my article in the December 2019 issue of A&E, page 20). Now, built on the road-tested SG400 and SG800 printers, Sawgrass is introducing the new the Virtuoso SG500 and SG1000 printers. Sawgrass' solutions have matured to be much more than just printers and ink; that's what makes this introduction so exciting. The company's approach offers an inter- esting, high-value, and holistic solution that benefits the beginner as well as the experienced sublimator. Let's take a look. The new printers from Sawgrass, the SG500 and SG1000, support four-color printing with individual CMYK ink cartridges.
