InkJet Sublimation or Laser Sublimation - Which is Right for You?

Maintenance:

Laser printers don't require head cleanings or nozzle checks.

Shelf life:

A sublimation inkjet printer cannot sit unused or it will dry up and need repair or replacing. Laser printers do not have that problem.

Production Speed:

Most laser printers pump out paper at close to thirty pages per minute. Which means that 100 sheets will be printed in about 3 minutes. Printing even with the best inkjet will take at least four to five times more.

Quality:

Laser sublimation produces excellent images on metals. Dense rich blacks can be obtained even when pressing through the protective plastic of metals. Full color on metal is outstanding with laser sublimation, even photos on gold or silver are gorgeous.

On white metals laser sublimation leaves a gray background where there is no image. There are ways to lessen this or to make it unnoticeable, but it happens with white metals. InkJet sublimation is better when using white substrate.

Flexibility:

Laser printers do not have to be dedicated to sublimation, you can quickly and easily change cartridges and print full-color brochures from the same printer you use for sublimation. With InkJet sublimation the printer cannot be used for anything other than sublimation. And most ink suppliers will tell you that you MUST run some ink through the inkjet heads every week or they will clog.

Profit:

Our 100 gram SubToner cartridge will yield thousands of individual trophy plates. Laser sublimation uses ordinary copy paper, not a special transfer paper. Margins are excellent with laser sublimation.

Which is right for you? It depends on what product you're working with, and how many of those you need to produce. Possibly you need both.
