With 1.8m width, this printer is ideal for Polyester-based Fabric and apparel. If you want your journey of dye sublimation go further, I will recommend you choose the S2508 Pro sublimation printer.

Compared with the first printer is easier to install and start using, Subli-S2508 is much more expensive. And you won’t regret choosing these two printers. With a continuous ink system, the printer will get ink from a reservoir. You don’t have to worry about frequently refill the ink into the cartridge. When it comes to sublimation ink, there are many choices of ink on the market. Whichever the ink you choose, I recommend that you should buy the same supply of ink provided by the printer manufacturer, which can guarantee the printing quality. Our Sublistar Ink is suitable for various sublimation printers, such as Epson, Hp, and Brother, which can also be used to direct printing and digital textile printing mass production. It washing fastness is 4-5 grade, dry rubbing fastness 4-5 grade, wet rubbing fastness 4-5 grade, light fastness 4-5 grade, which has won a good reputation in the sublimation industry.
