Extreme Versatility: Thanks to the extreme versatility of Sawgrass's sublimation printing technology, SubliJet-HD can decorate a wide variety of polymer coated hard substrates, including metal, ceramic, glass, FRP plastic, poly-performance fabrics, hardboard and more. SubliJet-HD is also compatible with 100% white polyester fabric.
Vibrant Colors: Extremely vibrant colors and stunning resolution at levels that other digital processes simply cannot match. It's the top choice for professional photographers and digital images who demand precision and fine detail in every image.
Superior Durability: Sublimated images created with SubliJet-HD are permanent! Hard substrate surfaces won't crack, peel or scratch. Apparel won't fade - ever - no matter how many times it is washed.
Infused Image: Unlike screen printing, print-cut vinyl and direct-to-substrate printing, which are sitting on the surface of the product, sublimation ink is actually infused into surface itself, and will not crack, peel or wash away.
Virtuoso Print Manager: The Virtuoso's Print Manager makes printing beautiful transfers a breeze. Powerful features enable users to easily optimize color output for photographs, vector graphics or spot colors. Also, it is Windows and Mac OS compatible.

I would say "Read the fine print" but this information is not in the the fine print. This printer worked fine for me the first year. After the warranty expired I had a misfeed error that rendered the printer useless. After weeks of back and forth with Sawgrass it was finally disclosed to me that Sawgrass doesn't service their printers. They avoided telling me this for weeks. Even when I asked to pay to have it repaired. They are a disposable item not worth fixing. They have no service technicians, not even a referral network for you to pay to have it serviced... Just troubleshooters. No parts to buy or way to get the printer fixed even if you pay for it! They just swap it out for a new printer until the warranty period ends. Here's the kicker... You are paying $1500 for a printer that is no better than the $99 desktop you use at home. If it were, they would see value in repairing it. If you are lucky enough to get by with no problems for years, I am sure it is a great investment, but be willing to say goodbye to your money at the end of the year if it breaks because there is ZERO support in place beyond the warranty period. I have never written a bad review, but we all work very hard for our money and I think transparency is crucial if you buy these entry level products from Sawgrass. Its their way of charging a lot of money for subpar equipment because there is no other way for those of us who can't afford a $15,000 machine to get into the business.
Used once and then we got busy with other projects. But worked well.
I love my Sawgrass SG 800!
This printer is easy to setup and operate, as well as the software that came with the purchase.
