Inkjet vs Sublimation Printers and Inks in Australia Which One Should You Use

There was a time when sublimation printing was favoured over inkjet printing, due to the continuous-tone technology provided by the former. Because each dot of ink could be any colour instead of only the colours actually installed in the printer, unlike inkjet, the sublimation process produced colours in continuous tones, much like a chemical photograph. These days thats really not true anymore, as todays inkjets are much more technologically advanced and now place droplets on the page that are microscopic and utilise supplementary ink colours. This means that today, inkjet printers produce superior colour fidelity to sublimation printers and inks in Australia.

However, there are some advantages to using dye sublimation over inkjet printing. The first thing that comes to mind is the fact that sublimation printers and inks produce completely dry pictures the nanosecond the page comes off the printer. Inkjet printers actually use wet ink, making this impossible, despite the faster drying times of todays inkjet printers. Sublimation printers also have less moving parts than inkjet printers, making them less prone to breaking down and needing expensive repairs. The whole printing cycle is extremely clean, meaning there are never any liquids to clean up, making the printing process with dye-sublimation a more reliable technology than inkjet printing.

There are, however, also certain advantages to be found with Inkjet printing over dye-sublimation. Sublimation printers and ink require specially coated paper to accept the ink. Also, sublimation ink is in gas form, so prints are not razor sharp. This is perfectly acceptable, even preferable for photography, but a distinct disadvantage when one it trying to print crisp graphic art.

Deciding which of the two types of printer is right for your textile business will depend largely on which features are more important to you.
