Chromablast ink and paper work together to chemically bond your design to 100% cotton, opening the door to long-lasting color on cotton apparel.
The ideal printer for the growing business or ambitious entrepreneur, the SG1000 prints on media up to 11˝ x 17˝ (28 x 43 cm) with the standard tray.
The SG1000 has the pro-level print consistency and versatile dimensions of its predecessor, the SG800, but has been updated from the inside out. In addition to design improvements such as a single roll-bar, the SG1000 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.
*The Chromablast ink system cannot be used to customize hard substrates such as ceramic mugs, aluminum ornaments, etc.*

Printer was easy to set up but not impressed with the chromablast ink setup because it prints dull.
This printer is not worth 1500. I'm definitely having buyer's remorse. The colors are dull. I went through the sawgrass class trying to learn more, and they were basically pushing something else to sell. I know they void the warranty if you switch the inks but... I rather void it then have it sit and collect dust.
This machine is definitely not worth the money. Supposed to have a warranty HPN said they can not fix my issue. Sawgrass will not respond to support ticket. I have only been able to print one run of transfers since i bought this. I had many special orders that i was unable to fulfill.
