Sawgrass Introduces Virtuoso HD Product Decorating System


Sawgrass introduced the Virtuoso HD Product Decorating System, the fully integrated, high definition product decorating solution that has been created to deliver virtually everything one needs to start a sublimation business.

Darcy Mauro, Sawgrass’ Consumer Division President said, 'By partnering with Ricoh to develop the only printers on the market manufactured specifically for sublimation printing and launching our new SubliJet-HD ink, we have taken the industry a giant step forward. Our Virtuoso HD Product Decorating Systems are designed to be total turnkey solutions that drives business from startup through expansion.'

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 speeds nearly twice as fast as their predecessors, and 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.
