These dye sublimation printers match the best office machines with up to a 2880 x 1440 dpi (dots per inch) resolution. While basic models paint the image with four or five inks, others can print with up to a dozen different colors and emulate Pantone standard colors.

Most use a combination of long-lasting pigment-based and vibrant dye-based inks. There are also wide-format sub printers that rely on latex inks (for outdoor use) or dye-sublimation technology (for photo-quality output).

One big difference with more pedestrian printers is that wide-format models can print on several stocks, including plain or bond paper, clear film for backlit advertising, and polypropylene and vinyl stock for outdoor installations. You can print huge photos on matte or glossy photo stock, or even print on fabrics with many of these printers.

The distinction that scientific and engineering wide-format plotters produce monochrome prints while graphics-oriented models use color is quickly disappearing. This is a result of lower prices for general-purpose wide sublimation printer and the increasing use of color in technical drawings, such as for highlighting areas of concern or including 3D renderings.

How to judge the quality of Digital Inks?
(1. Particle Size: small particle size of dye sublimation ink refracts or scatters very little light providing a large color gamut as well as allowing the dye to
“seep” into most media. As a rule of thumb, the smaller the particles the better will be the result. And, ink particle size less than 30um will not clog the print

(2. Color fastness +Washing fastness +Light fastness: terms used in the dyeing of textile materials that characterizes a material’s color’s resistance to
fading or running,such as light, water, washing. Usually use high-quality digital printing ink, the grade is generally 3-4, the better is 4-5, and the best is 5.

(3. Color saturation: When buying ink for your sublimation printer, you should only choose the ink with high color reduction. This will ensure that images
printed on the fabrics or mugs are vivid and sharp. So, please choose the ink with higher color saturation.

(4. Environment friendly: Sublimation transfer printing products may come into contact with human skin, or often exported and imported, so whether the ink is environmentally
friendly is the guarantee of quality as well.
