Sawgrass Inks The heart of Sublimation

Sublimation the process of using heat and pressure to permanently transfer ink from paper into a physical object. This all  depends on one vital ingredient: sublimation ink.  Sawgrass has been the global leader in sublimation ink development for over 30 years. A dedicated team of scientists are continually testing  and refining  the formulas for our inks, which are manufactured 100% in the USA. Sawgrass-approved inks deliver superior reliability and performance in Sawgrass printers, providing you with maximum value and the best possible image quality. Also, only Sawgrass inks work with Sawgrass Print Manager, providing seamless end-to-end colour management.
