Sawgrass And JG Electronics Showcasing The Art of Sublimation At FESPA Africa And Sign Africa 2016


Sawgrass and JG Electronics are preparing to showcase an exciting portfolio of dye sublimation and digital product decorating solutions in Hall 1 on Stand A1 at FESPA Africa and Sign Africa, taking place from 7-9 September 

Visitors will have the opportunity to view live demos of the Virtuoso HD Product Decorating System, the first and only fully integrated, high definition product decorating solution on the market, created to deliver virtually everything one needs to start a sublimation business and grow sales. Delivering lower startup and imaging costs, more vibrant and higher-definition images, and greater ease-of-use than previous solutions, this system includes:

Virtuoso SG400 and SG800 Printers

Co-engineered with Ricoh and harnessing the advanced technology of the printer manufacturer’s popular GelJet line, Sawgrass’ Virtuoso SG400 (A4) and SG800 (A3+) printers have the lowest start-up cost of any commercial product decorating technology. Both offer print capabilities up to 1200 x 1200 dpi for dazzling, HD photo-quality reproduction. They also feature a built-in self-cleaning function that keeps the printers running at their best, ensuring money-making uptime with minimal power and ink consumption.

SubliJet-HD Inks

These high-viscosity sublimation inks are uniquely formulated with 26 percent greater colour gamut and extended yield, ensuring sublimators get extreme definition, true-to-life colours and lower imaging costs with every print. SubliJet-HD’s fast, clean and convenient closed cartridges completely eliminate the downtime and maintenance costs associated with open systems.

BusinessBuilder Education Programme

This comprehensive suite of sales, marketing and production tools is designed to help decorators build their businesses. Through BusinessBuilder, Virtuoso users have access to webinars, seminars, how-to guides, webcasts, white papers, articles, market guidance, production techniques and more.

PartnerPlus User Support

Sawgrass offers Virtuoso users total system support, encompassing printer, ink and software – all in one place. PartnerPlus provides real-time support for system troubleshooting, colour management software, full product warranty and more.

'We are very excited to support FESPA Africa and to have JG Electronics present the next generation of sublimation technology to the African markets,' said Darcy Mauro, Sawgrass President. 'JG Electronics is one of our largest long standing partners in South Africa, and a very active supporter of sublimation as a technology that is helping businesses grow. We look forward to a successful show.'
