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 perfect printer for the hobbyist or moonlighter, the SG500 fits comfortably on a desktop, and prints on media up to 8.5˝ x 14˝ (22 x 36 cm). This allows you to apply custom artwork to a wide variety of popular, high-margin items.
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.
*The Chromablast ink system cannot be used to customize hard substrates such as ceramic mugs, aluminum ornaments, etc.*
