Quality, Consistency, Reliability

SubliJet-HD is the specially formulated sublimation ink optimized for use with Sawgrass' Virtuoso HD Product Decorating Systems. These inks feature expanded gamut and extended yield for vibrant, true-to-life colors and lower imaging costs.

Substrate Compatibility

SubliJet-HD sublimation inks enable you to decorate a wide variety of products made from polyester fabrics or polymer coated rigid media including: 

  • Aluminium Panels and Inserts
  • Hardboard and Wood Plaques
  • Tile
  • Mugs
  • Acrylic
  • Glass
  • Slate
  • Polyester Fabric
  • Reinforced Fiberglass Plastic

Convenient, Reliable Single-Use Cartridges

Optimize the performance and life of your printer with our closed-cartridge systems that provide clean and convenient ink delivery without the time, mess, hassle and waste of manually refilling bulk ink systems. Plus, our factory-sealed, single-use cartridges eliminate outside contamination, maintenance costs and downtime associated with bulk ink systems. 

Durable Infused Images  

Unlike with screenprinting, print-cut vinyl and direct-to-substrate printing, which deliver ink onto the surface of the product, sublimation ink is actually infused into the surface itself. The embedded image remains smooth to the touch on hard surfaces and completely breathable on fabrics. Images won’t crack, peel, scratch or wash away. 

Rich Vibrant Colors

Sawgrass inks offer extremely vibrant, realistic colors, with deep blacks and neutral grays that other digital processes simply cannot match. Sawgrass inks are the top choice for professional photographers and digital imagers who demand accurate color reproduction and detail in every image.

High-Yield  - Low Imaging Cost 

For maximum yield and low imaging costs, SubliJet-HD inks have a high density of sublimation dyes. Our high-yield gel formulation delivers the lowest possible image cost with 26% larger color gamut, ensuring the most vibrant colors ever. With imaging costs typically less than 5% of the selling price, digital decorating with Sawgrass inks is more profitable than ever.

Extreme Versatility

Unlike other decorating methods, Sawgrass’ sublimation printing technology can decorate a wide variety of polyester fabrics and polymer-coated hard substrates, including: metal, ceramic, glass, FRP plastic, poly-performance fabrics, hardboard and more.
