Mar 10th 2020

SG500 and SG1000 Sublimation Printers

Sawgrass will be launching their two new  sublimation printers at the end of this month, but they are available for pre-order now. In this blog we will unpack everything you need to know about these two printers to help you know the difference between the two and make an informed decision on which printer is right for you.

What’s New?

All upgrades have been made to both the SG500 and SG1000 Sublimation Printers

  • Ultra Fine Photo mode allows you to print at 4880x1200 dpi. The previous models had a max capability of 1200x1200 dpi.
  • WiFi capability means improved ease of use and mobility
  • Single roll-bar helps to reduce paper jams
  • The option to purchase a starter set of inks makes these printers more accessible.
  • New Sublijet-UHD ink is redesigned for even richer, more vibrant color on both hard and soft substrates.
  • More energy efficient
  • Both  sublimation printers are backward compatible with the bypass trays from the SG400 and SG800. With bypass trays the SG500 can print up to 8.5” x 51” material and the SG1000 can print up to 13”x 51” material.
