    The key to the patented SubliJet-HD system is the chemical process.  When sublimation inks are heated to 200°C, they turn into a gas and form a permanent bond to 100% polyester fabric or items that have a polymer coating.  The result is a premium, full-colour, photographic-quality image that will not crack, peel or wash away from the substrate to which it was applied.

     

     

    Creative studio

    Sawgrass’ innovative online design software and stock design library, developed to help creative entreprenuers quickly and easily produce transferable images that keep customers coming back for more. Available exclusively as part of the Virtuoso HD Product Decorating System, this powerful tool enables you to easily create great-looking designs from any Internet-connected computer, tablet or smartphone

    Closed Cartridge Solution

    A gel-based formulation, SubliJet-HD is packaged in closed cartridges for maximum reliability and extended uninterrupted printing.

    Extreme Colour

    SubliJet-HD delivers extremely vibrant colours and stunning resolution at levels that other digital process simply cannot match.  It’s the top choice for professional photographers and digital imagers that demand precision and fine detail in every image.

    Superior Longevity

    Sublimated images created with SubliJet-HD are permanent! Hard substrate surfaces won’t crack, peel or scratch. Apparel won’t fade – ever – no matter how many times it is washed.

    Infused Image

    Unlike screen-printing, print-cut vinyl and direct-to-substrate printing which are sitting on the surface of the product, sublimation ink is actually infused into surface itself.

    PowerDriver™-R

    PowerDriver-R makes printing beautiful transfers a breeze. Powerful features enable users to easily optimize colour output for photographs, vector graphics or spot colours. You are no longer limited to OEM driver capabilities or a single ICC profile. Plus, PowerDriver-R handles routine and otherwise tedious printing options, like mirror image, automatically.

    ColorSure™ Palette with Colour Finder

    When loaded into your design software, ColorSure Palette enables you to control how your image will look once transferred. Whether you are matching a customer’s spot colour or creating new designs, simply fill solid portions of artwork with a colour from the palette, and you will achieve precisely the correct colours. With handy features like Colour Finder, you can even create a custom palette, ready to use on future jobs!

    • Preset colour management output options for most commonly used substrates (ceramics, apparel, metal, etc.)
    • Effortless, one step colour matching with the ColorSure™ Palette
    • Expanded help features and content

     

    Power Driver 4

    PowerDriver® is the most advanced colour management software available for selected desktop sublimation solutions.

    Developed specifically for use with SubliJet IQ, SubliJet-R and SubliJet-E (Epson 7700 only) printing solutions, this FREE user-friendly software  delivers enhanced functionality and a higher level of colour output and allows to easily achieve accurate, brilliant colour output, print after print.

    Works with most popular graphics programs: CorelDraw®, Adobe PhotoShop®, Adobe Illustrator® or Adobe Elements®

    The most-advanced and easy-to-use color and print management software just got better with the release of PowerDriver™ 4. Now users of SubliJet-R® for Ricoh SG 3110DN and SG 7100DN sublimation systems have access to more functions and features than ever before, including:

     

    • Faster and Easier Installation
    • A Simplified User Interface
    • Pre-Configured and Custom Pre-Sets for Popular Substrates
    • ColorSure Spot Color Matching Wizard
    • Advanced Color Controls
    • Remote Support Access … and much more!

     

    Custom Pre-Sets in Action

    A key new feature for PowerDriver™ 4 is Custom Pre-Sets, which allow the user to easily select multiple variables for any given job. These include: type of substrate, media size, paper brand, and color settings. The user can then save their selections with a custom file name for easy retrieval on future jobs. The end result is a huge savings in production time and image accuracy for each and every job.

     

    A relatively simple, but extremely useful new function is Visual Tool Tips.  By hovering the mouse over any control button in PowerDriver™ 4, a caption appears on the screen explaining what the button does.

     

    Color controls have been significantly improved to provide more visual control of image print files.  In addition to applying pre-configured color management settings, users can now adjust the color hue, contrast, brightness and saturation via convenient sliders that make it easy to fine-tune the exact amount of each variable.  The final result can be saved as a custom pre-set.

     

    Along with updated color controls, PowerDriver™ 4 includes a new ColorSure Palette and ColorSure Spot Color Matching Wizard to assist users in attaining critical color matches.

    The New ColorSure Spot Color Matching Wizard with Active Visual Tool Tip

    The ColorSure Palette has been streamlined and updated to provide more relevant and useful colors, matched to standard colors used in the graphic arts industry. The new selective ColorSure Color selector ensures only the needed colors are applied to the artwork, so gradients and other sections of the image will remain unaffected.

     

    The all-new ColorSure Spot Color Matching Wizard provides a powerful, easy-to-use tool for identifying, validating and saving critical spot colors to the color sure palette.  Once a new color has been created, it can easily be saved via the custom pre-set function, and the resulting file can be uploaded for use with CorelDRAW or Adobe CS
