This printer comes with genuine Sawgrass inks and so still has a 6 month warranty unlike the printers with Chinese inks. The Printer will give you high quality prints and will be reliable which something very important to your branding business.
We continually get clients brining in Ricoh printers which are no longer working as they have used the Chinese inks, these as I understand it are blended inks so seem to damage the print head. Also your warranty is void when you use Chinese inks.
Once you have entered the world of sublimation printing you will find there is a whole world of brand able products out there that you will be able to add to your business over time, from Polyester T shirts, to Tiles and Mouse pads, to cutting Boards, Coffee Mugs, Bags and Coasters there is so much more.
We have found that if you use the standard Ricoh with a program like Coral Draw X3 or X4 which both have a built in colour profile called Optimised for desk top printers; this will assist you in having more balanced colours.
We at Studder have discontinued selling the Epson printers for sublimation as we are pretty much guaranteed of a client complaint with a blocked head. The Epson is perfect for the pigment ink it was originally designed for. The Ricoh is designed for Gel Sublimation and since we have started to sell these our clients are happy and we have no more complaints. If you want trouble and blocked heads buy an Epson, if you want quality and no problems buy a Ricoh.
