*Printer may ship separately from included inks.*


Chromablast ink and paper work together to chemically bond your design to white 100% cotton, opening the door to long-lasting color on white 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 dark fabrics, nor hard substrates such as ceramic mugs, aluminum ornaments, etc. This is most ideal for white cotton fabrics*

Sawgrass SG500

I am really enjoying my Sawgrass. I bought the kit which came with the paper, ink, classes and tech support. I am learning so much! I called tech support and they set up my software. If I have a question I just call them and they are wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend this product!

Good Vibe Design
Wonderful addition to our tool set

We currently do screen printing, heat applied graphics, and embroidery, along with side work using our laser cutter. However, there was a missing piece of the puzzle, so to speak, in that we wanted a way to create one-off samples for testing and apply designs to other substrates, like metal bookmarks, mugs, and more. The SG500 fits this space perfectly. Thus far it prints flawlessly, the colors are vibrant, and the application process has been straightforward. Still learning how to treat each substrate differently and taking notes. It's been a wonderful learning experience.
