The SG500 has the compact footprint and rugged reliability of its predecessor, the SG400, but has been updated from the inside out. In addition to design improvements such as a single roll-bar, the SG500 is more energy-efficient, prints with higher resolution, and offers WiFi connectivity. This means you’ll enjoy higher quality products and greater ease of use, at a price comparable to the previous model.
When purchasing the SG500, you will now have a choice for the size of ink cartridges that are including with the printer. This is known as the Install Kit. Starter Install Kits will include cartridges that have 20ml of ink, while Standard Install Kits will include cartridges that have 31ml of ink.
IMPORTANT: Choose SubliJet UHD inks for printing on 100% polyester, mugs, aluminum, hardboard, etc. (You can use our Forever Subli-Light transfer paper for white and light colored cotton when using SubliJet inks.) Or if printing primarily on cotton and cotton blend, then the choose the ChromaBlast system (also on our website as a separate item). Following these guidelines will give you the best quality results. Please call us if you have any questions.
