Installation Instructions

Current Users

IMPORTANT NOTE: Sawgrass does not recommend converting an existing SG400/800 printer with SubliJet HD inks to EasySubli™ inks. Converting inks will render your warranty VOID as it can lead to the ink delivery system being damaged. While both ink sets are compatible with the SG series of printers, they are not to be mixed.

If you already understand how to install ink cartridges in your Sawgrass Desktop printer and have the latest version of Virtuoso Print Manager (VPM 6.5 or greater), then please go directly to Step 4: Activate the Siser® EasySubli Print Profiles. Download the latest version of VPM here.
